BEST Kitchen Gadgets

1. Heart Measuring Spoon Set  These were a gift from my sweet Mother-in-law and I used them for decoration for the first 6 months because they seemed too pretty to use!  Two years of daily use later and they are still etched perfectly and make me smile every time I cook or bake!

2. KitchenAid Stand Mixer  I’ve had this sweet thing for about six years now.  I don’t use it every day, but there are lots of recipes I wouldn’t bother making without the ease of my KitchenAid!

3. KitchenAid Hand Mixer  I think this was our most useful wedding gift.  I’ve used it almost every day over the last twelve years and it still works like it’s brand new!  My sweet B’s love to take turns using it, too!

4. Le Creuset French Oven Yes, this was a total splurge!  Totally no regrets though!  It’s as dreamy as I imagined it to be!  And I topped it with….

5. Le Creuset Replacement Knob  This was just a bit more and it matches PERFECTLY with the rest of my kitchen remodel that I just finished!

6. Vitamix  After sitting through three years of demonstrations at the state fair, we finally picked one up for ourselves and toted it home on the subway train.  We go through phases using it, but hands down there is no appliance like it!  We love using it to make smoothies, soup, peanut butter….! 

7. Crock-Pot Slow Cooker I know I’m not alone in loving my crock pot!  Nothing is better than throwing the ingredients in and being able to just forget about it!!!  My Crockpot Creamy Italian Chicken and Crockpot Vegetable Lasagna were pinned thousands of times.  I have a lot more recipes I’m excited to share!

8. Pressure Cooker  Have you ever cooked with a pressure cooker?!?  I explain why I like them so much here.  And here‘s my favorite Chicken Noodle Soup recipe, ready in minutes.  Cooking with a pressure cooker, saves energy, retains nutrients, and allows you to provide a flavorful meal for your family in minutes with very little clean up!  Awesome!

9.  Meat Tenderizer I don’t know if you’ve picked up on it yet, but I have a pretty picky palette {to put it nicely}.  One of my hugest issues is with meat’s texture.  I think that every kitchen should definitely have this meat tenderizer!

10. Lemon Squeezer I have tried every lemon squeezer available and I think this one is hands down, the best!  I love that it keeps the seeds out and provides so much juice! 

11. Chopping Board  I love using my thick chopping board, it’s a nice heavy base for cutting and the price beats anywhere else!

12. Keurig  My sweet hubby loves a cup of coffee each morning and I love several cups of tea each day – I just put a tea bag in where the cup goes and use the bag a few times…then add another one in when I’m in the mood for more!

Clip it!

    I love my kitchen aid and ice cream attachment and my crockpot and my lemon squeezer.
    I also love my egg cooker – it sits in the pot with the eggs and you can just take your egg out when it is cooked to your liking- and it adjusts to air pressure, size of eggs etc- don’t know how but it does, perfect for our family where some like them soft and some like them hard!
