If you’re like me, you’ve spent more time in the kitchen the past month, then you have over the past year sis! Because of living a fast-paced New York City lifestyle pre-quarantine, finding the time to cook or prepare meals every day was not just hard — it was nearly impossible.
Thankfully however, this time at home has helped me to rediscover my love for cooking, and also to realize that delicious, home-cooked meals don’t require tons of time — just an investment in smart appliances to make life more manageable. So now life post-quarantine life can be a mix of the important things (work, life, family, friends) and more time in the kitchen.
Here are a few appliances your kitchen may be missing to inspire your next great meal.
