Desperately Seeking Sully ~ Kitchen Goods

This past weekend I spent Saturday morning (and evening) at my girl Felicity's house enjoying tasty food and all her newlywed gifts she received (think linens, plates, platters, etc).  One of the new goods we tested out was the Nespresso® CitiZ & Milk Espresso Machine which I am totally obsessed with now.

This little baby makes the tastiest of coffees.  I should know, I did help myself to three servings.  The machine is SOOO easy to use and the coffee tastes and smells so incredible.  The milk frother makes the foamiest and creamiest milk you have seen or tasted, and all of this is achieved in under two minutes. 



You basically buy these pre-measured air tight coffee capsules  insert them in the top of the machine and out flows this beautifully fragrant shot of espresso or cup of coffee.  

 

Enjoying my nonfat latte in Feliss' new darling Emma cup and saucer.  I drink a lot of coffee and I have to say it was one of the best cups I have had in a very long time.  The best part is the coffee works out to be about $0.65 a capsule which means having a cheap cup of coffee that tastes good has never been easier (once you buy the machine that is).  Officially obsessed. 

I really enjoyed drinking my coffee from this cute little cup and saucer, which made me realize I don't own any, which in turn made me search cup and saucers, which brought me to this china below.



The Missoni 'Margherita' Collection had me at first glance.  This bright collection screams fashion and fabulous and would really wake me up in the morning with a smile.  The colors, the pattern, and the mug alone, just perfection.  And those plates aren't too shabby either.

The other day I walked into Williams Sonoma with my girl Lisa and stopped immediately upon entering, when I saw the sauce below front and center.



Pumpkin Parmesan Pasta Sauce sounds absolutely delightful.  One of the things I love most about fall is the introduction of pumpkin as an ingredient at restaurants.  Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Scones, Pumpkin Butter, but Pumpkin Parmesan Pasta Sauce.....get out of town.  I believe I will be stopping by the store again to pick me up a jar as it sounds just too good not to pass up.

What kitchen item are you currently loving or can't live without?

A microplane! It's the best for zesting and grating cheese very fine. A kitchen must have for sure.

Next time I'm at Williams Sonoma I will definitely be picking up some of the Pumpkin Parm sauce - tdf!
I would have guessed that JOAT couldn't live without her mixer :)
