If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, not even heaven can save us from Revenge Emily Ratajkowski.

Normal EmRata — felt so wrong even putting those words next to each other — is one thing. And by ‘one thing’ I mean, Too Hot For Malibu, World’s Hottest Woman, and Woman Of The Year.

But Revenge EmRata? Looks aside, the woman is a New York Times Bestselling author, Partner and Creative Director for Loops Beauty, supermodel, and mother.

Caraway Cookware Set - My Honest Review

FX's The Bear Inspired Me To Level Up My Kitchen

After cranking out I’d say a thousand dinners in my COVID-Kitchen, I must say that not only am I sick-sick-sick of cooking, but my cookware is sick-sick-sick of my cooking too. The pots and pans are totally beat - how many lids got lost behind the fridge, how many nicks, how many dings. And my Our Place Always Pan has more recently turned into a Never Pan.

One positive about the pandemic is that I learned to chef. I drank Bon Appetits YouTube Channel dry. Not only did I watch Stanley Tucci’s Searching For Italy seven times, I devoured his book, Taste, cover-to-cover. And then I started following Matty Matheson.

It was a mix of the tattoos, dry humor, and overalls with no shirt underneath that drew me to Matheson – he’s effortlessly chic by being the abso opposite of chic while maintaining a certain je ne sais quoi.

Thinking the man could do no more – cause evidently Matty’s done it all – he goes and co-produces and stars in The Bear. This smash hit, FX original series follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), a world-class chef who returns home to Chicago to run his family’s sandwich shop after his older brother’s suicide.


My boyfriend, Dalton, just told me that The Bear’s been renewed for a second season! So I gotta dump the old cookware and get in the spirit. It’s time to chat up Caraway's Cookware Set.

Typically priced at $545, Caraway’s currently offering $150 off their cookware and bakeware sets.

Before we start cooking with gas, first . . . the recipe: Caraway’s 100% non-toxic cookware is free from harmful chemicals like polytetrafluoroethylene that can leach toxins into your food – looking at you, Teflon®. Their cookware and bakeware is naturally smooth, non-stick ceramic, and slick enough that cleaning only requires a touch of hot water and soap.

To begin, the packaging – Chef’s Kiss.

It arrived in a massive box. Each elegant piece has its own (recycled) cardboard nook and a pamphlet laying out the dos and don'ts to keep these babies pristine.

The full Caraway Cookware Set includes:

  • 10.5” Fry Pan
  • 3 qt Sauce Pan
  • 4.5 qt Saute Pan
  • 6.5 qt Dutch Oven (the pièce de résistance)

Each piece comes with its own lid which nestles in the Canvas Lid Holder. Dalton and I took one out, placed it in the magnetic pan rack, and stared. Frankly, we were mesmerized by the delicious, buttery cream color that totally matches our kitchen.

Caraway has five other rich shades like Perracotta, Gray, Navy, Sage, and Marigold. The Cookware Set is also available in Caraway’s premium and luxe Iconics Collection with glossy gold handles in both black and white for $595 ($150 off full price).

We used to use the 8-in-1 Our Place Always Pan which fit our budget (and small apartment). While a multi-use pan is innovative, Caraway and its easy storage solutions prove you don’t need an all-in-one to save on space.

The rack sits on our countertop and it’s so exquisite, I’m not even bothered that it’s taking up prime kitchen real estate.

I Slacked my co-workers, fretting about cooking with our gorgeous new pots. I worried I’d ruin them. So I put them to work on Molly Baz’s Chickpea Chorizo Carbonara which is no walk in the park for any old pan.

I mashed and fried up chickpeas, layered in the chorizo, and turned my stovetop into a gustatory battleground. With our Caraway Dutch Oven front and center on the range and the Sauce Pan on the back right, I felt like Selena Gomez in Selena + Chef. And hey-presto! I’m the chef.

We devoured our pasta and were left with a sink filled with Caraway carcasses. Damage was done. There was chorizo grease and crispy parmesan that I fully expected I’d have to chisel off the pans.The pamphlet that came with our set advised that pieces should cool before submersing in water. So I waited ten minutes and got to work. I barely needed soap – everything simply slid off. I’m talking crusty carbonara – an egg and parmesan-based sauce – gone. With ease.

To clean both the Dutch Oven and the Sauce Pan only took five minutes. My station was clean. Yes, Chef!

After cooking our first meal with Caraway, we’re absolutely hooked. From serving eye-candy vibes on my counter to lessening my oil intake to feeling safer because I’m not baking toxic chemicals into our meals, I’m just about hitting Matty Matheson and The Bear levels.

In the show, Carmy calls everyone Chef as a sign of respect. And now, as the highest form of respect, I’m only calling my Caraway set, Chef.

Six months later and I'm still waiting. And I'm actually more impatient than ever.

Between fantasizing about Season Three (hello Sam), bringing back the visor, and trying my hand (foot?) at soccer, I'm feeling a little lost without Ted. Summer is Lasso Season and I'm sure you're feeling the burn just like me.

If you’ve never seen the show or are shying away from it because anyone who watches Ted Lasso can’t stop talking about Ted Lasso - present party included. Also, hello to my boss who will read this and roll her eyes - please just watch it. Their seven Emmy wins speak for themselves, but allow me to give a quick synopsis.

The show centers around a small-time, Kansas football coach who’s hired to become a premier league soccer coach in the UK. A visor-slinging, mustached Jason Sudeikis could not be more perfect. His perpetual positivity and endless culture references pepper the show. He’s under-qualified, over his head, and definitely out of water, but charmingly manages to stay afloat with plain old, juvenile optimism.

There would be no Ted without his team, his fellow coaches, and his leading ladies. You can’t help but love each and every character as Ted slowly chips away at their reservations and enchants them all. (Except for one - you can definitely hate one but still have the smallest - and I mean smallest - shred of empathy for.)

Perhaps the best thing this show highlights is something that doesn’t come into clear view until later seasons: mental health and therapy. It’s a tale as old as time, but this tale comes in the form of the pressure to be perfect, panic attacks, the yips, and broken marriages.

People adore Ted Lasso for all that it is. And as we not-so-patiently wait for his - and our queen Rebecca’s - return, we need something to get us through. Futbol is life, but life isn’t life without Ted. Here’s everything you need from Amazon to fill the pitch-sized void in your life:

AFC Richmond Visor | $24

Show some scalp this summer. The only thing better than Ted’s staple v-neck-sweater-over-button-down look is his AFC Richmond visor.

Fellow Stagg Tea Kettle | $189

As IF Rebecca would use anything less than the best. Sure, she’s a splurge, but she’s worth it. This electric kettle has a pointed spout, perfect for any precision pour-over or tea-steeping. The LCD display lets you know the current temperature. Plus, you can even leave it at any temperature for when you go back for that second cup.

Believe Fridge Magnet | $15.95

No, I didn’t forget about the iconic sign, and yes I know it’s a fridge magnet. Should you want the Believe sign for the rumpus room wall, I personally think you should just make it yourself! It’s what Ted would want.

Soccer For Dummies | $22.99

Nicer weather means outdoor-sporty-things.

I really do my best to listen to Coach when he explains offsides, but sometimes you just need to call it like it is. And 'like it is' means I don't know what he's saying. Not only will you get to know the rules and regulations, but you can even brush up on your dribbling and passing.

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Cheddar Crackers 2-Pack | $9.35

Be a goldfish, own a goldfish, eat a goldfish. However you need to remind yourself to be a goldfish is alright with me. Eating goldfish just might be the easiest…

Perrier Carbonated Mineral Water | $14.22

Live like a Londoner with some sparkling water! A spring and summer staple, just make sure not to chug it, cause it goes down a little saucier than flat water.

Pom Pom Pens | $12.99

The devil works hard, but Keeley Jones works harder. These pens hold the secret to your next promotion right in their pom-poms. Or, in the pom of your hand. (Okay, I’ll see myself out now.)

Dr. Jartt 6-Pack Face Masks | $24.99

Much like Ted Lasso, if you haven’t yet tried Dr. Jartt, you’re missing out on valuable benefits. Perfect for all skin types, these masks give needed ultra-doses of hydration during these hot months and help brighten your skin. Give a few minutes back to yourself and indulge in some luxurious self-care.

20 oz. British Beer Glasses | $19.98

While you may not be able to go to Richmond’s pub - The Prince’s Head - you can at least drink like it. These pint glasses are perfect for cheering to wins, losses, and let us not forget - ties.

Solimo Face Tissues | $13.49

Say what you will, but tissues will be needed for both characters and viewers alike. The hugs, the apologies, the growth. It’ll getcha. Solimo’s tissues even come with lotion. So, while you’re embracing the Ted Tears, you’ll never need to worry about dryness.

Settle in, grab some cold sparkling water, and settle down for some of the purest television. As Trent Krimm, The Independent’s, once said, “If the Lasso way is wrong, it’s hard to imagine being right.”
