Spring Cleaning with OXO

Spring Cleaning with OXO | ChezCateyLou.com

Even though it doesn’t feel like spring outside, I have been hit with spring cleaning fever! I spent this past weekend cleaning and organizing our apartment. And specifically, our kitchen.

The one part about food blogging that I do not love is all the cleaning. Creating delicious recipes is so much fun, but pretty much every weekend, our kitchen looks like a bomb went off in it. This past weekend, I think I used literally every single bowl, measuring cup, spatula, and random kitchen tool that we have, all in the span of two hours.

Lucky for me, the nice people at OXO have my back. They sent me an awesome kitchen cleaning kit to get me started on spring cleaning, and to give me a little help with the constant battle that I have with my dirty dishes.

OXO #Poptober Challenge | ChezCateyLou.com

I am an extremely organized person. Schedules and to-do lists and calendars: I love all of them. But when it comes to keeping my cabinets organized…well that, I am not quite as good at. I like to make excuses and blame the fact that I don’t have enough space in my small apartment for everything, but I know that my pantry could be a lot more organized. And that is why I was eager to accept OXO’s #POPtober Challenge!

OXO kindly sent me an assortment of their POP Containers to use to organize my pantry. What a fun project! No really, I enjoy things like this a lot. I took literally every single thing out of my cabinets and reorganized all of it.

No-Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Rich and creamy ice cream without an ice cream maker? It is possible, with my No-Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream! You won’t believe how easy it is!

No Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream | chezcateylou.com

If TheBetterHalf had to choose a favorite dessert, it would be chocolate peanut butter ice cream.  Our freezer has a pint of chocolate peanut butter Haagen-Daz in it at all times. But up until recently, I had never been able to make him his favorite treat because I don’t have an ice cream maker! I just don’t have room to store it, so it is one appliance I’ve decided I don’t need. But then I discovered no-churn ice cream, and what a dangerous discovery it was.

No-Churn ice cream is so ridiculously easy to make! And you really only need two base ingredients – heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. So I played around with this perfect no-churn base and came up with No-Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream.
