< two fifty: life in a tiny apartment.

Baking supplies.

This is more of a list than a tip. In addition to questions about how many people we can squeeze within these four walls, I get asked about the stuff that we manage to cram in here. Now that it's the season of pies and cookies and cakes, the questions have started to be about baking in particular. Everything we own in the baking department isn't pictured above, but I've written it all down below to give you an idea of our arsenal. The list could certainly be pared down, but we've found everything here to be more or less useful.* Here, an annotated list:

1. kitchen aid mixer: vintage. yellow. never leaving our side.
2. sieve: we broke the handle off our old one. this one is nicer and pretty, too.
3. mixing bowls: multiple sets. we love them, so they stay.
4. whisk: the handle on this puppy throws it off balance, but the rubber means it doesn't scratch.
5. wooden spoon: for mixing, serving, sipping.
6. rubber spatula: classic. simple. functional.
7. cast iron skillet: good for corn bread, biscuits, and just 'bout everything else. {wish we had a lid}.
6. measuring cups (wet and dry): i really want a vintage three spout measuring cup. one sweet day.
7. measuring spoons: james constantly removes these spoons from their ring. drives me bonkers. otherwise, great.
8. baking sheet: a real workhorse. we use it for everything from roasting veggies to making cookies.
9. baking dish: if you ever want brownies, you need something like this (the baking sheet covers most other bases).
10. tart pan: we have a ceramic pan. it's pretty, doesn't take up much room, and we use it near weekly.
11. pie plate: green. from my mama. could make a pie in a tart pan, but it'd be awfully tiny.
11. hand mixer: entirely superfluous now that we have big bertha up there. but we bought it, so it stays.
12. rolling pin: james loves our rolling pin. i can never seem to roll an even crust with it. marriage. compromises.
13. pastry cloth: cheapest, most awesome thing ever. makes rolling out crust (and cleaning up after it) so.much.easier.

*I did my best to include links for the curious among us. In some cases I wasn't able to find the exact product, so there are approximations included instead.
