Happiness is...

Brand New Cookware...(sigh*)

I"m one of those gals that loves getting things for the home and things that will make my "chores" easier to handle. I like to cook but detest having to use old cookware that no longer does what it's supposed to, is warped or doesn't cook evenly. Well, my old set had seen better days and about a month ago I started looking for a new one.

I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of my housewares family...

Cook's Cookware. 10=piece set of hard anodized cookware with clear glass lids (love that!!!) These are easy to clean, cook the food with evenly distributed heat and I'm so happy! Can you tell? They are a bit on the heavier side and I do need to use a pot holder when touchng the handles on the glass lids as they can heat up when left for periods of time (as in simmering).

Love the glass lids!
Breakfast potatoes cooked to perfection...

We purchased these about two weeks ago when they were 50% off! Plus that Saturday, JCPenney's was having an additional 15% off sale as well. Our total cost was about $135.

I am one happy, cooking momma bear :0)

I bought some new cookware a few years ago and have really enjoyed it. Mine has the glass lids too. I agree about getting stuff to make chores easier!

What a good deal! JC Penney keeps sending me emails with coupons but the closets one is about 45 minutes away now. Those potatoes look delish!

I stopped by to say thanks for stopping by That Old House today, and then got caught up in reading, hahaha. LOVE the new cookware -- i got a similar set this past winter, and I love it. What a difference from the old, mismatched stuff I was using, or the things I bought before I was even married. You got a GREAT buy on this set -- enjoy it and use it in good health!
Best ... Cass
