3. Adjust your color balance…The images are too warm
I agree. They mostly look as though they were taken in candle-light. Maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea, to put one in! But still, do your white balance corrections very intentionally. What feel, what story, are you trying to communicate with the picture? Just something to think about.
The other thing I noticed was the perspective; in all the shots, you used a (quite typical) downwards-pointing angle. But you could add a lot of creativity by playing around with that, especially by using a somewhat lower, more eyelevel perspective, and provide more space on the kitchen counter for your elements. As is, they’re a little crowded in the space they’re given. The attached images are provided for reference only, and are just pulled off the web.
I actually like the contrasty effect given by the strong sunlight in IMG_4111.jpg. It’s true, as @timtam said, that the lighting is very direct, but again, it depends on the story you’re trying to tell. Whatever you choose, choose intentionally.
Keep experimenting, and keep up the good work,
