pie safe dreaming

Just the other day the kiddos declared, “Mom, you need to move this stuff, it is in the way!”  Our kitchen is project-central.  Whether we’re cooking, baking, doing homework, working, painting, drawing, or creating some other wonderful thing…the table and island are the places to be.   The counters and islands  are quickly filling up and spilling onto the island…one of the youngest kiddos’ favorite places to make and watch.

  • homemade mayonnaise
  • kimchi
  • pineapple vinegar to make cortido
  • pickled garlic
  • pineapple chutney
  • buttermilk
  • cheese
  • sourdough starter
  • soaked sourdough ebelskiver batter
  • sourdough pancakes
  • porridge
  • herb rye bread
  • pain d’épices
  • sourdough banana bread…

…we need a pie safe.

I’ve been enamored with them for quite a while…but I’m not making that many pies right now.  🙂

Those of you fermenting away in your kitchen…where do you put everything?  The cold storage is too cold….and the counters are too full.

I think a pie safe would be so charming and yet functional.

Here are a few which I find completely delightful:


What do you think?  Do you have a pie safe? Where do you put your brines, crocks, sourdough, and fermenting wonders? xo ~ katrina

ps. if you’re interested in any of the recipes above let me know and I’ll try to post them first. 🙂

  1. I am glad that I am not the only one constantly warning my kids not to knock over whatever is “growing” on the counter. The idea of a pie safe is genius. I think everyone should have one. Now if I only had room in my kitchen!

    • Awesome 🙂 What are you growing in your kitchen? I’m dying to hear! As for the loss of space…I’ve started putting stuff in my pantry…although there’s not much room in there. Perhaps I need to simply rearrange the cupboards, take out stuff we don’t use everyday (serving platters and place-mats)…just need some old punched tin to let the air circulate!
