The older I get, the more I enjoy spending time in the kitchen. I’m always finding new recipes to try or whipping up some fresh-baked goodies for our family. Cooking is even more fun when you have the right kitchen tools to help you work more efficiently. Today for Kelli’s Show and Tell I thought I’d share my favorite mixing bowls.
A couple of years ago I became very interested in vintage Pyrex bowls and serving dishes. Whenever I’m at a thrift store or yard sale, I’m always on the lookout for unusual pieces.
This particular set of nesting bowls is from the American Heritage collection made in the 1950’s. The print is also known as Autumn Harvest. It features roosters, stalks of corn and wheat, and an Amish couple. It’s very folksy and quite cute. I especially like how the handle also functions as a spout to make pouring batter or liquid very easy. They’re ovenproof, but I haven’t ever used them in the oven because they are in near-mint condition. Maybe one of these days I’ll be brave and give it a try.
When I was a teenager I would have thought that anything vintage just looked old. I guess my perspective is changing as I age. 🙂
