Welcome to In the Mix!

Every Friday, I will write a post that tells you about new products I discover, new music and any other other random things I think readers will be interested in learning about. This is also the place where you will find my menu for the upcoming week and a shopping list. This will be a huge help if you want to follow along with me on Sunday #PrepDay.

Here goes!

KITCHEN

Williams-Sonoma Flat Whisk
Williams-Sonoma is one of my favorite places on earth. Sometimes I like to walk around the store to get inspiration. I will admit, some of the stuff is a bit pricey. But my philosophy is: If you use it and you love it, it’s worth it! I apply that logic to almost everything. The last time I took a trip to WS, I came across a tool that has changed my life. It’s a flat whisk. This stainless steel beauty is absolutely perfect for deglazing pans and stirring sauces and gravies. It keeps things smooth and lump-free. And right now, it’s on sale! Find it here.

MUSIC

Moon Child – Please Rewind
Have you found yourself wondering where REAL MUSIC went? Enter Moon Child. This project is the second album for the former USC jazz performance students. Please Rewind sounds like a blend of the jazz they studied and a whole lot of soul that comes naturally. This is the perfect background music for a lazy Sunday afternoon or a romantic date night. Expect to press play and walk away. Preview it here.
