Best food buys for February Image by: instagram.com/przepisyzpodrozy
These are the items on our editors' wishlists this month and they're all food-related! (And they're all under $100!)
We're looking for small ways to brighten up our kitchens and our palettes this month!
Townships Organic Maple Syrup, $12, etsy.ca.
This 100% pure, organic maple syrup is a must-have for any foodie. - Linda Cotrina, web producer
KitchenAid hand mixer, $52.50, amazon.ca.
Ever since I moved into my own apartment, I’ve been searching for the perfect hand mixer—and I think I’ve finally found it. This five-speed mixer is lightweight and comes in my favourite colour, ice blue. - Jessica Alcock, digital assistant
Ajishima Nori Furikake, $4, walmart.ca.
Our food editor, Soo Kim, recently reminded me of this simple topping that especially elevates white rice dishes. It’s usually a combination of sesame seeds, seaweed, salt and sugar, can be found from a variety of brands and stores and it packs a serious flavour punch. - Alexandra Donaldson, fashion & beauty editor
Nicolas Vahe Pesto-Basil Parmesan, $14, drakegeneralstore.ca.
Slather this pesto on a nice piece of baguette or use it as an addition to your favourite pasta dish. - LC
Ikea 365+ Carafe, $5, ikea.com.
I’ve decided to swap out the glass milk jugs I use to house water with these simple carafes from Ikea. It’s not that the milk jugs didn’t work—it’s just that when I return them for the deposit I no longer have a pretty way to store water. Problem solved. - AD
Lazy Sunday Mornings
Barista stainless steel French press, $80, thebay.com.
Perfect for those mornings when you just don’t want to get out of bed. - JA
Squish Cherry Watermelon Hearts, $6, squishcandies.com.
Just because Valentine’s Day has come and gone, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop eating festive red candy. Plus this pick from Squish is cherry-watermelon flavoured which reminds me of spring—which is hopefully on the horizon. - AD
