Let’s Get Cooking with the HandmadeMN Etsy Team!

by Jeff Ambroz

 
Celebrity chefs are the new rock stars.  Ina Garten, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis draw huge television ratings, inspiring us to cook exciting new dishes in the comfort of our own homes.
 
With a little help from our HandmadeMN makers and artisans, you too can take part in the cooking-at-home trend.
 
Before you start preparing your all-star meal, put on a reversible apron from BethieAnnDesigns.  Functional and pretty, this apron will keep you clean in style.

This beautiful apron is reversible, and will add colorful flair to your kitchen endeavors.
A Minnesota-themed towel by lyriccol will add fun and cheer to your kitchen prep.  These cotton towels are made with non-toxic fabric paint, and also make a great hostess gift.

You can now show your state pride in the kitchen!
You’ll be honored to present your kitchen creations in this wood-fired, large striped serving bowl by suepariseaupottery.  Featuring non-toxic glazes, this piece will also serve as a lovely art piece in your kitchen and dining room for many years to come.

Enjoy this gorgeous bowl today, and leave a well-loved heirloom for the next generation, too.
Even gourmet chefs have a few time-saving, tasty tricks up their sleeves.  When you need a savory treat in a pinch, try a dip mix by SherriLynnsinPierz.  With 8 flavor options, you’ll always have something new for your guests to try.

Which flavor will you try first? Or will you mix 2 to make your own custom combo?
After all that work in the kitchen, you’ll also need to clean up.  Fortunately, clean up can be a lot more simple with this set of three floor cleaner covers by Pinnetta.  These covers will save you time and money, and they’re also a great eco-minded choice.

With this fun clean-up option, the kids may want to get involved, too!
Thank you to these skilled HandmadeMN makers for their functional and beautiful wares, and for inspiring us to finally try that new recipe we saw on TV.  Be sure to check out the many Etsy shops of HandmadeMN for even more fantastic ways to get cooking at home.
