(2012) Canon 5D MKIII
Bryan recently bought himself a pretty snazzy point & shoot camera. I have to say, I’m really, really impressed with this little Sony camera. It’s small enough to fit inside his pocket, yet takes quite impressive food photos in pretty dark lighting. This is definitely Bryan’s travel camera of choice for his business trips, and he takes it with him everywhere he travels.

I use this electric kettle almost every day to make tea. Heck, I use it to heat up water for the pot when I want to boil pasta because it’s so much faster. There’s actually no particular reason why I own this one (mostly just because they had it at Target). I am going to guess that most electric kettles work similarly fast and effectively. I picked this one because of the way it looks. It does get hot, so definitely be careful!
Bryan got this for me as a birthday present one year and I absolutely love it. It has its own condenser so you don’t have to bother with taking up precious freezer space for a huge dewar. Best yet, you can make ice cream on a whim just by turning it on. It makes luxuriously beautiful ice cream. You can check out some of the more unique ice creams I’ve made on this blog, such as avocado, olive oil, black sesame, simple lemon, and grape nut.
I can’t believe it took me this long to appreciate how awesome cast-iron Dutch ovens are! I finally bought my first Le Creuset piece the summer of 2010 at an outlet store. I am still amazed at how evenly it heats everything and how well it retains heat. Seriously, it has made stir frying a breeze. I love the versatility of this pot. Yes, it’s heavy and a pain to lift up, but it’s totally worth it for the performance. It has become one of my default pots of choice whenever I want to stir-fry! Perhaps I’ll look into a cast iron wok next!
