The best measuring cups ever!

My prayers to the baking gods have now been answered!

In all of the years I’ve been baking (started with my mom when I was about 5), I’ve gone through my fair share of measuring cups. From metal ones (where the handles falls off), to hard plastic ones (where the handles break off) to sets where not all measurements are present (missing the all important ¾ cup). Well a few weeks back I stumbled upon the Oxo Good Grip Measuring Cups set!

The Good Grips® Angled Measuring Cups (a set of 7) are an essential accessory for every kitchen. These Measuring Cups feature easy-to-read colourful measurement markings making the work of measuring very easy and simple. The Cup handles have soft grips for added comfort. Constructed of sturdy plastic, the kitchen measuring cups make dipping into flour and sugar a breeze. This plastic measuring cups set is also a breeze to clean (since they go in the dishwasher).
Cup Set includes 1 cup, 3/4 cup, 2/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup.

Love and measuring sanity…

This is one of the most impressive gourmet shops I’ve ever put foot in. They don’t only have an extensive selection of oh so yummy sauces, dips, marinades… but also carry artisan breads, cheeses, deli, coffee, prepared foods, deserts (see picture below)… and to top it all off; the staff is just out of this world. We we’re not even 2 feet in the door when we were greeted by one of the associates with a big smile and “hello how are you today?”


After going around each and every isle a few times my basket was full of goodies! I got some mustard, great Stonewall Kitchen marinades, jellies, spice rubs & wine crackers (yep, the box says to serve with red wine… how could I resist!). I left Max Market with a bag full and a spring in my step as went back to the car.

Don’t worry my fellow food lovers, as I taste test all of these gourmet treasures I will post my thoughts (with some pictures of course).

I’m so happy we took the what seemed to be very long drive from the hotel down to Monroe Avenue.
