Dishware

Use: Here you are investing in the best food / produce that you possibly can.  You hand select each apple, you turn over every package to read the ingredients,  you prepare wholesome, nutritious dishes that are packed full love….WHY wouldn’t you plate it on something equally as gorgeous?  First wee eat with our eyes.  Present your dishes in style, present them with care and thought.  BUT this doesn’t have to cost you a fortune.  Let me share with you my secret….

I have a dish fetish.  Hi, my name is Amie Sue and I have a dish fetish.  I could dedicate a room or two or three just to dishes, if I were allowed.   The more space one has, the more the need to fill it?  :)  Anyway,  you can find great deals at thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, antique sales, Craigslist, E-Bay, even your friend’s house!  These days things don’t have to be “matchy matchy”  The eclectic look is very popular.  I encourage you, even when preparing foods just for you… serve it with self-love and create a beautiful presentation for yourself.  Purchasing secondhand is great for your pocket-book.  Recycle and reuse!

  1. This is such a user friendly read and very useful. I think you just saved the masses of women, like me, who buy and return.
    I’m printing this since you’ve clearly done the research and testing and I didn’t even have to dirty a tool I’d have to return anyway.
    Thanks so much for sharing and making our kitchen life so much easier.

      Goodness thank you Dina for the kind and encouraging words! I created this site to help others in their journey of eating healthier and it brings me the greatest joy in doing just that! The kitchen can be an intimidating place, I speak from experience. My goal is to help strip that fear away and replace it with creativity. :) Have a blessed day and thank you again for the kind comments! amie sue

    Hi,

    I just fell in love with your page. :)
    I have been reading and learning reading and learning.
    I saw you have a metal type of nut milk strainer on one of your pages. Where did you that? I have been looking high and low for a nut milk strainer that I can just push down and not use a bag or a metal mesh and spoon….

    Thank you
    Awilda

    Hi there!
    I so enjoy your site and have made many of your recipes. I’ve been using my Vitamix to blend stuff and it works great most of the time but I killed it when making your mint chocolate brownies. I wonder what brand food processor you use/recommend? Especially for blending some of the thicker ingredients?
    Thanks so much!
    Amy

    • amie-sue says:

      Oh dear Amy… I am sorry to hear that. I won’t use a Vitamix for those types of batters. This is the one that I use. A food processor is better suited to handle these types of batters. Have a blessed evening, amie sue

    Does the strainer that you recommend work well for rinsing quinoa. I thought I found one that might work once, but the quinoa drops right through.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi, I love all of your recipes. Thank you for sharing. I am interested to know what kind of a food processor do you use? I am about to go and get one for my self, but i am not sure if i should go for just any food processor. I know that the Vita Mix is the best, but it is too expensive. I want to be able to make smooth paste for dips and frosting. I’ve never used a food processor, so don’t know if any would do the job? Any advise please? Thank you. And keep up the amazing work that you do.
