When it comes to saucepans hands down I love my All-Clad Saucepans. I use mine daily and they still look as if they are brand new! As a cook I always look for durability in my pans. I can cook anything in these pans, throw some cheese on it and pop it in the oven to brown the cheese on top with no warping or anything. When it comes time to clean up no problem it cleans right up without having to scrub for ten minutes to get the melted cheese out. These pans really are worth the investment!

Growing up I always remember spending time in the kitchen with my grandma. Oh man the things that we would make together, I believe she is the reason I have such a passion for cooking and baking! When we were done cleaning up the kitchen after a long day of making all kinds of goodies we would sit down at the table and she would pour me a big ol glass of lemonade that she kept in the fridge for when my siblings and I were over. She had this beautiful white pitcher she made it in every time. I think it was her favorite dish in the house, wither it had lemonade in it or flowers that pitcher was always out, she told me that one day I would get her pitcher. Well the years went on and eventually the pitcher broke, she felt so bad knowing I loved that pitcher so I bought her and I matching white pitchers for her birthday. Of course it wasn’t exactly the same one she had but for her this one is just as special, click on the link below and get yourself one for your kitchen who knows maybe it too will bring you memories.
