Current Cravings… of the baking accessory persuation

So I don’t know about all of you, but I always am looking for new and/or pretty new toys for my baking, cooking, and entertaining endeavors. Below is a round-up of things that currently have my eye.

I’ve really been wanting to work on my souffle technique lately, so I’m loving all forms of souffle and ramkin dishes. I really like this one from Sur La Table.

I LOVE Mules! I’m not talking about the animal or shoe, but the delicious and currently very popular drink. I am partial to a Gin Gin Mule, but love a good Moscow Mule as well. They are tasty and refreshing, especially in the summer. Plus, mules stay especially cold (and look so elegant) when served in copper mugs.

How gorgeous would this marble pastry board from WS be for serving brunch or fresh cookies?! Plus, it would be so great for making pie if you stuck it in the fridge first to stay cool.

I am working this summer to turn my black thumb of death a little more green and nuturing…and it looks like it’s working. I now am starting to have fruits and veggies coming out of my ears thanks to my garden and our CSA farm share, so I want to try my hand at “putting up” the delicious summer flavors so that we can have them the rest of the year also! This book, this one, and this one all have me inspired. (Also, am I the only one who wants to try raising bees? mmm honey. Too bad it’s not allowed where we live because this book has me really inspired.

Have a really delicious weekend!
