Cozy Modern Kitchen Finds
Simple ways to refresh your kitchen for the new year
I don’t know about you guys but when it hits January I am ready for all things organizing and decluttering!
This year I wanted to make our kitchen my focus. Jade and I have been married for 13 years now, so many of our small appliances and kitchen gear are pretty old and could use being replaced.
When we got married you would be hard pressed to find both cute and functional kitchen products and appliances on the market, but in todays world you do not have to sacrifice beauty for functional pieces any longer.

Make home yours
My favourite place to shop for home decor products is Walmart. I love that I can usually find everything I need from one shop, and they have some of the best trendy, cute products on the market when it comes to kitchen tools and mini appliances.

In todays post I wanted to share 3 ways I am updating my kitchen this year to make it a little more aesthetically pleasing.
Switching out your coffee syrup bottles
Jade and I bought a new coffee maker for Christmas and we are loving it! The only problem is I kinda hate having the Torn syrup bottles always sitting on our counter top because they aren’t really my style or kitchen colors.
I decided when we had finished two of the bottles of syrup to update them to make them a little more modern. I also made our own simple syrups in two of my favourite flavours, coconut and vanilla.
To update the bottles I soaked the glass bottles in hot water for 30 min and peeled off the Torn labels. I dried the bottles really well and filled them with my homemade simple syrups.
Then I made some simple, modern labels using 2×2″ square labels and canva. You can watch our corresponding YouTube video above to see how easy they are to make.
I then bought the torn gold pumps because I love how they look to complete my new coffee syrup bottle transformation!

Easy Simple Syrup Recipe
To make syrup for your coffee all you need is equal parts sugar and water and extract for flavour. I used 1/2 cup water and sugar plus 1 tsp of coconut extract to make our coconut syrup. I also made a vanilla by replacing the coconut extract with vanilla extract. So easy and so delicious!
Swapping out our spice jars for new modern ones
I have been seeing these bamboo spice jars all over social media and pinterest and I have to say I am not tired of them! The clean simple lines of the bamboo jars are my favourite and I love how easy they would be to display on open shelving or a countertop.
I made my own labels the same way I did the labels for our syrup bottles. I also grabbed this super cute wood lazy Susan from Walmart to display them on our open shelving. We love how they turned out and by making the labels myself I saved a ton of money!
If you need a small appliance at least make it a beautiful one
Last but not least I have been really wanting an air fryer for a while now. When I saw this stunning one from Drew Barrymore’s line ” Beautiful” from Walmart I knew I had finally found the one for me.
This air fryer is nice and compact but it also is so beautiful designed I don’t mind having it out on my counter at all times either! Win win!
We have been loving using our air fryer for everything from French fries to pot stickers. For todays post I made some super yummy buffalo cauliflower bites and they are so simple.
Air Fryer Cauliflower Buffalo Bites
To make these healthier buffalo cauliflower bites you will need:
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion salt
- 1 tsp paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp buffalo sauce
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1-1.5 cups of water
Mix all the ingredients above in a bowl and dredge bite size chunks of cauliflower. Cook in your air fryer set to 375 degrees for 12 min in a single layer.
Once they are cooked you can add a simple buffalo sauce to the top. Just mix 4-5 tbsp buffalo sauce with 1 tbsp butter and warm in the microwave. Toss your buffalo cauliflower bites and serve with ranch dressing and green onions hot from the air fryer.
