My Favorite Kitchen tools

August 1, 2019 in Blog

With all the menu planning, and cooking I’ve been doing with the kiddos lately, I thought I’d share a little about my kitchen setup. First off, I like things to be multi-purpose, if possible. I don’t have a lot of extra gadgets or tools, but with that being said there are times when you need the right tool. I have a set of cast iron skillets, and a set of pots that I use all the time. I have 2 small drawers with my baking and kitchen gadgets, they are neatly organized in bins so I can easily find everything.

The appliances that I have are good quality and I have had them for years. For example a Vitamix and a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. These are multi-purpose tools and I use them quite frequently. I like having things easily accessible so I have a cutting station where I keep my knives and I have a thin drawer underneath full of cutting board liners for my pull out cutting board, and I keep an extra cutting board and my pastry board on my kitchen island.

Everything in my kitchen is very simple. I don’t have a lot of extra dishes or glasses, although I do have a thing for coffee mugs. We are actually going to be doing a mini remodel soon, moving some cabinets around so that we can have some extra room for seating. Our kitchen is the heart of our home, so we want to make it as inviting as possible (on a budget of course).

About Me

Hi I'm Monica! I'm a Real Estate professional in love with houses, especially vintage houses. I even have my Historic Homes Specialist designation. I enjoy decorating and rehabbing and helping my clients create their dream home with inexpensive updates. I also love helping sellers get top dollar for their property by taking the dated out of their home and staging in a modern simplistic way. I'm also obsessed with Mid Century furniture, so if it doesn't fit in my house, you'll find it in my Etsy Shop. I enjoy coffee and thrift store shopping to look for items to repurpose and use in house. And of course anything vintage, I’m a bit of a June Cleaver. I’m a wife and a mom of teenage twins that I homeschool. I am currently a Realtor in San Antonio, TX, and a lender in both Texas & California. But if you are from Southern California don't worry I have connections, I also help educate all over the country about the home buying process and have a team of people that i work with to help you reach your goals. We moved to SATX from SOCAL in 2018 to simplify our life. I love it here and have helped several people relocate. Read More
