I enjoy cooking. Yes, I am fessing up to it. Before I had my daughter I used to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I would experiment with new recipes frequently, and baking was pretty much a weekly event. But once I had my daughter my time to cook was drastically cut. This made cooking kind of turn into a chore. But now things are starting to turn around.
My daughter is at the age where she really likes to help mommy. And helping in the kitchen is one of her favorite things to do. So my time in the kitchen is starting to increase, and it's even more fun now with her helping me!
I was recently given the opportunity to check out ApronsandSmocks.com, which is a site full of aprons, smocks, chef apparel, and more. When I started looking I immediately thought this site was geared towards restaurants, but really it's a great site for a variety of things!
The first thing that struck me was how affordable the aprons are. I checked out a 3 pocket apron that is listed for only $5.75. They offer a variety of styles and colors. And then... you can have them personalized!
I decided to get a three pocket bib apron in purple. I then had "Mommy's Kitchen" embroidered on the top in hibiscus. The apron arrived last week and I was impressed. The material is high quality. It's got a substantial feel to it, it's not too heavy but it's a nice feel. The three pockets are great! I was kind of surprised how useful they were. I was able to keep a measuring spoon that I was using in one pocket and I put a recipe card in the other so I didn't have to keep walking across the kitchen to check out what I needed next.
And the embroidery looks great! I am really excited to wear this apron often. It's useful and looks great. My husband said I looked cute :)
I would definitely recommend you check out this site. Whether you are looking for a functional apron for yourself or a gift, this is the place to look. And they even have aprons for kids! I am definitely thinking about purchasing one for my daughter and having it personalized. This way she can use it when she helps me cook and when she does arts and crafts!
