The Apron is the kitchen workhorse. Available on

Food splashes, grease splatters, and stains happen. Aprons are important! Unfortunately, I don’t like wearing them. Instead, I wear spots all over my tops—not smart.

I have a drawer full of aprons. Most of them I got as gifts with great images or cute sayings on them. They’re fun, but no more. The problem is that they’re stiff and don’t fit well—hence I haven’t worn aprons.

That is, until I found a simple chef’s apron that is soft and flexible, adjusts to fit, and has a pocket. It’s easy to clean and, most important, it keeps me clean.

I now wear them all the time.

In case you do get grease spots, this should help remove them.

  1. Determine if your clothing can be washed.
  2. Treat the spots before washing and drying. (Drying sets the spot.)
  3. Dab some clear liquid dish soap on the grease and gently rub in.
  4. Let set for 2 or 3 hours before washing.
  5. After washing, check that the spots are gone before drying. (If the spots are still visible, repeat the process.)

Here is the good news: the chef’s aprons have arrived!

These aprons are workhorses! They are not meant to be pretty, though they are. They are meant to keep you clean, they’re soft and get softer every time you wash them. Since they are 100% cotton, they aren’t wrinkle free. Take your apron out of the dryer while it’s still damp, pull the wrinkles out if they really bother you, and let it hang to finish drying.

There is one large center pocket perfect for tucking in your dish towel so you always have it at hand when you need it.

There is something perfect about cracking a hard-boiled egg and sliding your fingers under the shell so it pops away from the white in a few big pieces and you are left with this beautiful glistening egg. You particularly know how satisfying that experience is when you expect it but don’t have it. Here is how...

Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
