Welcome to a new series! I’m going room by room around the house with easy tips to keep that space organized. Let’s start this party with the kitchen. That’s where everybody always ends up anyway.Â
I am the anti-Hannah Harto.
Which is not to say I am anti-Hannah Harto.Â She makes me cry laughing. She’s fabulous. A girl getting tipsy and making silliness in the kitchen? Why has she not been hanging out with me and my friends for the last 15 years?
Uh, because she’s way younger, lives in Brooklyn, and is fast on her way to becoming a celebrity? …Â Sometimes answers are not fun.Â
Anyway. My point is, we’re very different. I love baking, and am, frankly, pretty ass-kickingly great at it. And in the last year, after some effort, I’ve gotten quite-frankly amazing at cooking too.Â Proof, you say? Happy to. Evidence: one turkey breast, one batch of cookies, and one satisfied customer:
How cute is my cousin?
While sometimes my new projects do make the kitchen a little insane (like the Asparagus Soup Debacle, or the Great Canning Incident of 2010), I try to keep it neat. It’s not a huge space, and anyway, you know, it’s me: It’s got to be organized.Â Here’s how I do it.
