These rubber kitchen gloves somehow cost $390

There’s a haute version of everything plus the kitchen sink these days — even dish-washing gloves.

Calvin Klein head designer Raf Simons sent models down his spring catwalk in rubber accessories that — price notwithstanding — are nearly identical to the kind you buy from your local bodega.

The main difference? This millennial pink pair is stamped with the designer’s coveted logo.

This isn’t the only grocery store staple getting a stylish reboot this season: French house Céline re-imagined the see-through plastic shopper, which will lighten your wallet of a whopping $600.

The gloves are currently available for purchase at SSENSE for $390.

Hundreds of ‘Martha Stewart Show’ Items Are Going Up for Auction

You may try your best to emulate Martha Stewart at every turn. But if your efforts are all in vain, don’t worry: Perfection isn’t easy as easily attained as America’s entertaining tips goddess makes it look. But if you’d like to feel a little bit closer to Stewart, than an upcoming auction from Kaminski Auctions in Beverly, MA may be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Over 400 items—props, furniture, and more—from The Martha Stewart Show are going up for bid starting next month.

For two days, beginning Saturday, May 5 at 10 a.m. ET, plates, glasses, pots and pans, aprons, dozens of vases and planters, cutting boards, and even cookbooks from the Martha Stewart library will be offered up by Kaminski Auctions to lucky bidders in person and online (some at ridiculously low starting bids, like $35 for a whole collection of vintage cookware). Prep tables, dining tables, and chairs, including some signed pieces like a toboggan of all things(!), are also up for grabs. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds are going to benefit the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, a home for the elderly that also advocates for their access to medical care and changing public perception of aging. A preview of the available items will be held Sunday, April 29 through Friday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can browse the entire collection online, as well.

The Martha Stewart Show was a syndicated talk show that aired from 2005 to 2012 (the last two seasons were on the Hallmark Channel) and featured Martha interviewing guests, giving entertaining tips, and, obviously, cooking.

Of course, there are some less risky ways to get your hands on Martha-approved items. You can try subscribing to her wine club (she tastes all the wines herself), get her new line of food and kitchenware at Macy’s (including her own pasta sauce), or just head to Michael’s where you can stock up on chic party supplies for any kind of celebration.

That’s nothing to say for her many TV appearances, her co-hosting gig with Snoop Dogg, and her latest role a the newest Chopped judge (episodes featuring Martha Stewart on the Food Network’s culinary competition will begin airing June 5). You might be tempted to say Martha is in too many places, but as far as we’re concerned that’s just not possible.

How to turn ordinary old kitchen items into snazzy décor

Striking the perfect balance between a kitchen that looks Instagrammable and one that you can actually cook in can be pretty tricky. Flip through any catalogue of perfectly-staged kitchens and the mind reels at how anyone could keep a kitchen that pristine for any amount of time. You know what though? A lot of those perfect kitchens have probably never even had food in them, let alone kids. You’re doing just fine.

We shouldn’t have to shy away from the fact that we *gasp* cook in our own kitchens. They should look like we use them regularly and enjoy it. Let’s celebrate using our kitchens for things other than taking photos by using functional kitchen accessories in our décor. Here are ways to turn your regular old kitchen stuff into part of the whole room.

Not your grandmother’s china wall

Remember how your grandmother used to have a wall dedicated to an assortment of evenly-spaced china plates? Even if she didn’t, you know what we’re talking about. It may be a dated style, but that doesn’t mean you have to hide your cute dishes away in a cupboard or cabinet. With a simple plate hanger, you too can decorate with your dishware, bringing the look into the twenty-first century with a little asymmetrical styling.

Group plates, bowls, serving dishes or baskets of all different sizes in a cascading pattern on your wall. For the best look, stick with a colour theme, use an odd number of dishes and space everything out on the floor before putting it up on the wall. Then watch your friends admire your DIY wall art and casually replicate it in their own homes while insisting they were planning on doing this for a long time.

Don’t have enough decorative dishes? Hit a thrift store. There are any number of vintage finds to be made there.

Open the door to your best accessories

Stop hiding your pretty kitchen items away. Get some open shelving either new or from a thrift store (a coat of paint works wonders at reviving old shelves) and display the items that you love and use often. If you drink tea every afternoon, keep an assortment of mugs within reach. If coffee is your pick, keep the French press and a pretty can of coffee out. Put out some spoons or other silverware in a Mason jar or pitcher. Use open shelving to make your space more functional while also displaying the things that would otherwise be tucked away in a cupboard.

Finally, a use for those tea towels that are “too pretty” for drying dishes

Do you have a tea towel (or five) that you bought, but just can’t bring yourself to use because it’s too pretty? It’s fine, we all have them, but what good are those “too pretty” towels doing in a drawer? Bring them out and use a little DIY magic on them to turn them into gorgeous wall art. Wooden dowel hangings are an option but don’t underestimate the classic look of just hanging your towels on some simple hooks.

Use a display tray for your specific needs

Trays are objectively adorable, especially when you load them up with cute cups and a tea pot. If you drink a lot of tea, why not set yourself up with a tea tray holding a few cups, saucers, a tea pot, sugar bowl and tins of your favourite tea blends? If tea isn’t your thing, use the same concept for whatever works for you. Coffee, hot chocolate, popcorn popping supplies, even small plants or candles would look sweet.

Cake plates aren’t just for cakes

Have a cake pedestal that spends most of its cake-free time luxuriating in a cupboard? Put it to work and use it to hold your salt, pepper and napkins on the kitchen table. Or put it on the counter and have it hold oil and vinegar bottles, your most frequently-used spices and finishing salt.

A post shared by Kitchen And Bath Authority (@kbauthority) on Apr 24, 2018 at 12:05pm PDT

“I just thought it was pretty”

Embrace the prettiest things in your kitchen and just put them out. Is the balsamic vinegar bottle cute? Put it out. Are you in love with your Twinings tins? Leave them on the counter. Are you absolutely in love with a vintage pitcher? Use it to house your utensils by the stove. Embrace the things you want to leave out and just do it. The easiest décor to use is the stuff that’s already tucked away in your kitchen. Find what’s pretty and put it out.

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Frittata

by Emily Kemme

The family is descending on your home to celebrate Mother’s Day and most likely, that means you are cooking. You’ve decided the event will be a brunch. It’s typically an easier meal to prepare than dinner, some of the prep work and table setting can be done the night before, and most people are happy with an egg dish. Whip up this easy, tasty Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Frittata while everyone is sipping mimosas, or bake it the day before and warm in the oven. Combine with a fruit plate and bam! You’re done. You’ve just put together a healthy, beautiful brunch presentation for Mom.

The key is to ask for help when you need it. It gives people something to do and makes them feel good because they had a hand in the meal. There is something to be said for pride of contribution.

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Frittata Recipe

For Frittata:

12 extra-large eggs

1 cup half and half

4 ounces crumbled goat cheese

1/2 lb smoked salmon, skin removed if it has it, flaked into 1/2 inch pieces

12 stalks fresh asparagus, tough ends broken off, cut into 1 inch pieces

3 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced

1 bunch dill fronds (about 10 stems), stems removed, fronds minced

1/2 tsp black pepper

cooking spray

For Caramelized Onion Topping:

2 T olive oil

2 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced into half rings

salt to taste

To prepare Frittata:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine eggs, half and half, goat cheese, smoked salmon, asparagus, scallions, chopped dill, and pepper in large bowl. Using a fork, beat egg mixture until creamy and yolks have been incorporated.

Spray a large omelette pan or skillet with cooking spray. Carefully pour in egg mixture. It will come nearly to the top.

Place a baking sheet on oven rack in case of spills and place omelette pan on top of sheet.

Bake for 1 hour or until frittata is puffed and cooked through. Let rest for 5-10 minutes if serving immediately. Using sharp knife, cut into 6 to 8 pieces. Recipe can be doubled if you use two skillets.

To prepare Caramelized Onions:

While frittata is baking, heat olive oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions for five minutes, stirring. Sprinkle with salt. Turn heat down to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how deeply browned you prefer the onions. They shouldn’t be crispy; the texture you’re aiming for is soft and slightly sticky from the sugars being released.

Top individual servings of smoked salmon and asparagus frittata with caramelized onions.
