When I was growing up, my family always gathered for dinner.
No matter how hectic our schedules, when we sat down to a home-cooked meal, it was our time to reconnect with each other — our time to share each and every nuance of the day.
From a young age, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mother. She would cook, and I would lie in the middle of the floor making fake snow angels and rambling on about my day. She would good-naturedly step over me to get around the kitchen because this was our mother-daughter alone time. She would tell me step-by-step what she was cooking and how she was making it. And that’s how I learned to cook. It was the beginning of my love affair with the kitchen that continues to this day.
During that time, Mom would cook, and I would do the dishes. And I always joked that she must have used every dish in the house because the sink would be overflowing with pots, pans, baking dishes, serving bowls, plates, knives, and forks.
As I got older, I got tired of cleaning all the dishes I used in my own kitchen while prepping, cooking, serving, storing and reheating. There had to be an easier way — a simpler way to cook, with less clean-up. So one day, Mom and I pulled everything out of the cabinets that we used to cook a meal, and I asked, “How can we simplify all of this?”
Well, that’s how temp-tations® was born. I wanted to create something beautiful that would go from oven to table to refrigerator to microwave to dishwasher, all in one dish. And temp-tations® does just that.
I believe every family should be able to sit down to a wonderful meal together, no matter how busy their days are. And I designed temp-tations® to help you and your family get back to enjoying that time together. When you try temp-tations®, you’ll see how my beautifully designed ovenware simplifies your life, helps you cook effortlessly, and creates a gorgeous table that makes dinnertime special again. Not only will the food taste better, but you might just notice that the smiles are wider, the conversation heartier, and the kitchen is a brighter place not just at meal time, but all the time.
