I am so happy with all of the new appliances in my kitchen. I don't know how I managed without them for so long. They truly make my life a little easier each day. When setting up my kitchen with Martha, she recommended these basic small appliances for me. She thought I would need a food processor, blender, coffee/spice grinder, coffeemaker, stand mixer, toaster/toaster oven and microwave. Alexis, Martha's daughter, recommended a rice cooker and I always wanted to try out a hand blender and waffle iron, so I added them to my collection. What I really love about my new appliances is that they not only work incredibly well but they make my kitchen look fantastic too!

When settling into a new home, we often realize the items that we simply cannot live without. Usually they are the little things that get lost in the shuffle between point A and point B - the cleaning supplies, the office supplies, etc. Here's a look at 10 things I can't live without at home and at work:
On Wednesday night, TASCHEN SoHo held a book signing for Walton Ford's popular new edition of Pancha Tantra. One-hundred lucky people gathered at the store on Greene St, where they sipped on wine, browsed TASCHEN's vast collection of books, and had their editions signed with a personal illustration by Ford.
It was a pleasure to get my very own copy signed by the artist himself. As many of you know from a previous post I have always loved TASCHEN's books, but Pancha Tantra is my favorite yet. The book is a complete catalog of Ford's stunning watercolors, which depict wild animals with human psychological traits (e.g. baboons drinking from champagne flutes). I really admire his work for its naturalist style and complex narratives - it is truly a breath of fresh air and an inspiration. As soon as my apartment is set up, this book will be displayed proudly in the center of my living room for guests to leaf through.
Thanks to Walton and the wonderful TASCHEN offices for hosting such a lovely event!
