Lemon Love

I spend so much time on here talking about food, which is lots of fun, but I think it’s time to add something more to the pages here at Lemon Sugar.  I get SO many emails, Facebook messages and Tweets asking about my favorite kitchen products, cookbooks and even what kind of dog I have, so I thought you might enjoy a new feature here on Lemon Sugar – Lemon Love.

From time to time, I’ll share my favorites with you – what I’m loving, what I’m not, my favorite new trends, books, clothes – you name it.  I’ve also added a couple of features in the side bar, a Lemon Sugar Library and a Shop Like Lemon Sugar slideshow.  Now, you can not only see the cookbooks and kitchen gadgets that I use in my kitchen, but you can easily purchase them as well.   But don’t worry, I won’t slow down on my recipe posts, in fact there is a new one coming again tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

So without further ado, here’s what I’m loving this week:

I was really excited when Giada De Laurentis expanded her line to Target.  I’ve been slowly buying her baking dishes and I love them.  The neutral colors are pretty and the quality is fantastic for the price.  This is my latest purchase, the 2 quart oval baker:

Speaking of kitchen goodies, my Mom bought me a little present last week – she knows how much I adore pretty cake plates, so she found this one for me at Pier 1:
It seems like every year about this time I start itching for a new bag.  Spending three days a week at the dance studio with my girls, lugging everything I own back and forth means I need one of these new totes from Banana Republic, right?
I’m a sucker for sentimental jewelry pieces, so I about came apart when I found this storefront on Etsy last week. You can put the fingerprint of your loved ones on your jewelry!  Love. Santa, are you listening?
Finally, I was in Restoration Hardware last week, and I made the mistake of picking up one of these towels.  I’m in love.  I can’t stop thinking about them.  They’re the softest, coziest, most awesome-ist towels I’ve ever found.
Most of you know that my latest and greatest kitchen-gadget find is the Better Zester by Edgeware.  In fact, I love it so much that we held a giveaway last week and I’m sending one to one of my lucky readers!
I’m happy to announce that our winner is Kelly Walker, comment #4!  Congratulations Kelly!  Please send me an email at:  lemonsugarblog – at – gmail – dot – com and I’ll send your Better Zester right away.
Stay tuned for another giveaway at the end of the week, and let me know what you think about Lemon Love!
