Remember when we were all like “2021 will be our year”? LOL. We’re only halfway through January and while the pandemic raging on and recent violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol makes it feel like the world is fully aflame, I swear it’s not all doom and gloom. There are COVID-19 vaccines to be hopeful about, a brand-new president (and WOC vice-president!) about to take office and, if you squint, you can see that spring isn’t so far away. Something else I’ve found that helps ward off the apocalyptic scaries? Focusing on what I *can* control since so many things are out of our hands right now. I, for one, have decided that 2021 is the year I stop fighting with my dusty old canister vacuum and let an actual robot do the job I loathe so much. (Seriously.)

The cookware upgrade
As someone who detests cooking, it takes something special to get me in the kitchen—and something even more special to actually get me to enjoy being in the kitchen. Enter: the super buzzed-about Always pan. This non-stick pan is meant to replace eight pieces of cookware, which frees up my kitchen storage space, and I also just love how cute it looks on my stove! My favourite feature of this wünder pan has to be the built-in spatula rest which allows me to putter around the kitchen in peace without worrying about singeing my spatula or getting sauce all over my counter. My cooking expertise hasn't improved a ton, but the pan has seen many fried eggs for avocado toast, and dare I say my eggs are even fluffier than before? —Katherine Singh, assistant editor
