  1. I have a bit of a bowl fetish. There…I admitted it. The cuter ones I’ve picked up at asian groceries mostly. I think the pie bowls came from somewhere boring like Crate & Barrel. We use ramekins a fair amount too. Nothing wrong with ramekins. They are the perfect size.

  2. I didn’t even think about going to Asian groceries and I have several I can try around here. I made a run to all of them a couple of months ago because I was looking for soup spoons. I wasn’t in the market for cute bowls though!
