Dress to Impress

I have to be honest – I didn’t even set foot in my kitchen yesterday. When I got home from a late-night meeting, it was all I could do to plop down in front of the fireplace to thaw out with a bowl of leftover ham casserole. HOWEVER, I’ll be back at it tonight, trying out several recipes for dinner. (Veal, steak, chicken, veggies…it’ll be a real schmorgasbord! Stay tuned!)

In the meantime, I thought I’d continue sharing more of the goods that St. Nick gifted me this year. I’m telling you, if you’ve got a cooking fanatic in your life, these could be great for the next gift giving occasion…


Ooh, la la!

Item #1: The FiFi Poodle Apron
Okay, I made up the name, but no matter. This one-pocket apron is absolutely precious. The pink fabric features drawings of French scenes, girls walking poodles among bistros and cafes – perfect for someone working their way through a French cook book. The sweet touch of polka dot black ribbon and the bow across the top adds a sweet feminine touch. The neck strap is adjustable and there are waist ties in the back. Tres bien, non? 

You can use your lasso of truth to see what folks really think about your cooking.


Item #2: The WonderWoman Apron
All the world is waiting for you, and the powers you possess! This apron knocked my socks off – how could you not feel like a superhero in the kitchen while wearing this?? An awesome replica of the Amazon woman’s iconic costume, this apron is almost too good to cook in – it may be a “serving only” piece after all the dirty work is done. Know a super mom or avid comic book fan? This apron is just the ticket! 


I think this is what I'll wear when I star in my own Food Network show...someday.


Item #3: The Official AYWJ Apron
Flattery will get you everywhere!! I actually got this from Ben for my birthday just before Christmas, and I was so excited to see…yep, you got it!…my very own logo! This apron is terrific. The waist strap is a drawstring that, when tightened, also shortens the neck strap. Pretty clever, really. Two big roomy pockets and really durable material make this really functional – I wouldn’t be afraid to wipe my messy hands on this baby. Best of all? This bad boy could be yours! Just go here to order. 

Who says you can’t be adorable while slaving over a hot stove? With sweet aprons like these, you’ll have to be careful not to outshine the dish you’re making. Wonder which one I’ll wear in the kitchen tonight… Tomorrow, a review of our schmorgasbord dinner. And stay tuned for a list of culinary reading material!
