This post is sponsored by my friends at NESTEA, but the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own… just as always! 🙂

Supper Made Simple. It’s a phrase I use a lot. I find that it’s often the simple things in life that bring us the most joy. That certainly goes for food. Recipes that are simple, easy, and approachable are the ones that actually get folks in the kitchen to create a home cooked meal. And while the food that’s on the plates is important, the connections that we share with our families over that meal are the real reason I do what I do.

MY OTHER RECIPES

My friends at NESTEA believe in those same principles – that less is more and that joy can be found in simplicity. In fact, they recently relaunched their product with a new recipe and fewer ingredients. For example, the new Slightly Sweet Black Tea is made with only 3 ingredients – just brewed tea (water, tea leaves), sugar, and citric acid. As part of their relaunch, my friends at NESTEA asked me to collaborate and design the kitchen in a new Tiny House. The Tiny House movement is huge right now. The idea is to pare down one’s belonging to the basics and live simply in a space that can be as small as 300 square feet. It’s a social and architecture movement that has a strong following. Followers of the movement tout the financial savings, environmental consideration, and the freedom and free time that is a result.

The whole idea of going back to basics, simplifying, intimidated me at first when it came to the kitchen because I love all my gadgets and things. But the truth is, it forced me to reevaluate and realize that we don’t need all the “stuff” that we surround ourselves with every day. It had me making purposeful and detailed decisions about the ways to design and outfit a kitchen. Over the course the next few weeks, I’ll be taking you on a tour of some of the more deliberate things I did to design and outfit the kitchen and showing you items I chose to make this tiny space efficient, effective, and easy. I’ll also be sharing simple and easy recipes along the way to show you that putting a home-cooked meal on the table doesn’t have to be difficult, time-consuming, or require a bunch of expensive, exotic ingredients.

And this Tiny House is amazing! You’ve just got to see it!

The kitchen is on display (TODAY ONLY! 5/17/17) in Herald Square in NYC but will be traveling around the country afterwards. So maybe you can get an opportunity to see it. Today, you can jump over to my social channels on Facebook and Instagram to get a first-hand view of the NESTEA Tiny House and I’ll be at the event throughout the day to share details with you. You can also get a taste of the new NESTEA by visiting the Tiny House or by going to NESTEA.com to learn more.

  1. Great post!! Were looking to convert an old school bus in a couple of years and I can’t get enough of small homes for inspiration.
