AN AFTERNOON IN TYNEMOUTH.

Saturday Matt's sister, mum and I went to the Northumberland coastal town Tynemouth. This town really has made an impact on me, the atmosphere of the town was amazing and I felt so happy there.

We had the best fish and chips we have ever had at the cute cafe called Longsands Fish Kitchen and then went to the beach to enjoy a coffee at the converted container, grill and bar Riley's Fish Shack.
I need to come back in the summer!!

MY FAVOURITE KITCHEN UTENSILS.

One thing is sure, I aim to have everything I own to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Even when I am cooking, which I do as often as I can because I love it so much. That being said, they need to be functional as well. Good design is only good if it looks good and does what it is designed for well. If it hadn’t been because of lacking space in my kitchen, I would have drawers that looked neat and tight at all times. I know it might almost seem like a disease, but I truly think that if the objects you use are functional and pretty at the same time, then you become even happier when using them. 

Anyway, I wanted to share my favourite kitchen utensils with you, they are cheap, good quality and pretty. What more can you ask for?

Spatula
I always make my porridge with this one. I love that you can use it just as a spoon, but be able to scrape all of the content out of your pots, pans or bowls when using it because it is made of silicone. So satisfying!  
 

Egg cracker 
My dad has always cut his egg, when we were having soft-boiled eggs at home. When I found this utensil, my heart sang. Such an easy way of cutting the top of the egg with just a drop of a ball. 
 

Cheese slicer
I love cheese and this is a Danish invention even the original brand, which is the perfect device to slice your cheeses with, especially the semi-soft danish cheeses. With really hard cheeses I would use a knife instead though.
 

Baking brush
In silicone to make it easier to wash up, but also cute in the greenish colour not like everything else out there in neon colours. 
 

Peeler
This is just so much easier than the old fashioned carrot/potato peeler. It takes no time to peel anything
 

Grater
The best grater for anything, be it zests, cheese or nutmeg. I am thinking about getting more of these, especially an extra coarse grater 


Whisk
This little fella is ideal for dressings. I don't have shaker right at the moment, but pour all your ingredients for your dressing in a bowl and whisk whisk whisk!

MY ESSENTIAL CUPBOARD INGREDIENTS LIST.

2 years ago I moved out of my parents home and into a room in London that I was sharing with Matt. I remember spending so much money in both IKEA and different grocery shops, because we didn’t have any essentials in our cupboards yet.

Matt’s mum very kindly gave us a £50 tesco voucher, but we were so confused about what different things we needed to buy. I couldn’t really find any good lists online of kitchen essentials, so after a while of discussing what food we liked and our favourite herbs and spices, we created a list and went shopping in one of the big tesco’s! 
This list has helped me so much in our move back to Denmark where we started all over again. 

If you are moving out soon or just need to clear out all of your cupboards and start from scratch here is an essential cupboard ingredients list. I have also made a PDF for you to download and have on your phone while you are shopping!
