Spicy Pumpkin Soup and KenmorePro Blender Giveaway

pumpkin soup
I like using the high powered KenmorePro Heavy Duty Professional Blender to make both cold and hot recipes, as it is versatile. This blender is special because we can prepare warm soups within a few minutes by simply adding the ingredients, puréeing it and blending it on maximum speed for 5 minutes until it starts to steam. We can also use it to make smoothies, soups, sauces, and for other meal prep.

Organizing with Kilner

The original Kilner jar invented by John Kilner and Co in the 1840's has stood the test of time for over 150 years. Although, the design has been updated, they have kept the unique vacuum feature that helps keep our blends, preserves, and pickles fresh. I find the Kilner jars can be used in lots of different ways, not just to store preserves and pickles. I used a variety of different sized Kilner Jars to organize my kitchen pantry.

Heart Shaped Egg Ring and Essential Kitchen Tools

I love this cute heart shaped egg ring. It is perfect to make any meal special, as we can use it to fry eggs, and more. I used it over my electric grill and frying pan, and had good results. Since it is made with silicone, the Trudeau egg ring can withhold a temperature of 428F. I found we have to be careful when using the egg ring and make sure to only touch the silicon top and not the metal holder, as it can get hot.

Completion of Our #KitchenReno and Painting with Para Paints

I am glad we completed our mostly DIY #KitchenReno project. We fixed the vent, tiled the floor, transformed the cabinets with Rust-Oleum, organized the drawers in the kitchen with Rev-A-Shelf, installed the Delta Touch2O Technology Faucet, and chose quartz for the countertops. I chose the coin silver grey from Para paints for the kitchen wall, and two different shades of white for the ceiling and trims.

Using Rev-A-Shelf In Our Kitchen

rev-a-shelf pull out basket
We started our #KitchenReno during the holidays, and so far the tiles are placed, the vent is fixed, the cupboards are transformed. We are working on painting, replacing the countertops and the faucet. Since things can be put away with all the major jobs done, I can organize the cupboards. I used Rev-A-Shelf cut-to-size insert wooden organizers to keep my cutlery, knife and utensils organized. These products are available in Home Hardware stores such as Lowes.

Our Cabinet Transformation Using Rust-Oleum

After transforming the cabinets with Rust-Oleum
We have used Rust-Oleum about three years ago to transform our front porch, and love the results. Due to our trust in their products my husband and I undertook a DIY project during the holidays using the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation kit. Using this kit to transform the kitchen cupboards to our preferred colour is less costly compared to changing the entire cupboards or doing messy demolitions.
