Kitchen Gadgets That Make Cooking Effortless

Are you a whiz in the kitchen or a wizard with frozen meals?

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite kitchen gadgets that can help any level of cook.

My first and all time favorite is the KitchenAid mixer.  I know a lot of brides-to-be are adding these to their wedding registry and what a smart choice it is!

kitchen gadgets for effortless cooking


KitchenAid has been in the appliance business for many, many years.  It's no surprise either.  The KitchenAid mixer is a very versatile appliance.  It can be used for a number of things from mixing, kneading, grinding wheat to juicing oranges and slicing vegetables.  This is a workhorse in the kitchen.  Bed, Bath, and  Beyond is a retailer of KitchenAid products.

kitchen gadgets for effortless cooking


Along with preparing that dish in your KitchenAid, you're going to need some quality utensils.  My dad always taught me to buy the best you can afford.  Why?  Because using quality tools for any job makes the job much easier.  I highly recommend purchasing quality bamboo or wooden spoons and spatulas.  World Market carries a nice variety of wooden utensils.

Along with quality utensils, you're going to need quality ingredients.  We use extra virgin olive oil in our home like crazy!  The quality of your ingredients will affect the overall taste of your dish.  The Epicurean Olive Oil Company carries just that...quality olive oils, vinegars, and seasonings.  I guarantee you'll taste a difference in your dishes!

kitchen gadgets that make cooking effortless


Finally, but not lastly, my final gadget for the kitchen.  Well, it isn't really a gadget but something I highly recommend and really wish (please oh please) would make a huge comeback...the apron!  I love aprons and I use aprons.  Vintage ones.  New ones.  Plain ones.  Pretty ones.  One of my current favorites came from Kirklands and has my initial on it.  It doesn't directly make cooking effortless but it definitely makes clean up effortless!

I'm so glad you stopped by!  God bless!

What I've Been Up To This Week
You'll notice there's no link to a post for this past week.  That's because life is happening so quickly around Spain Hill Farm right now that I'm barely keeping up.  I've begun selling real estate which is something I've always wanted to do.  I guess because I have such a love of houses selling real estate kind of scratches that itch.  I think I got in at a great time too because the market is hot in our area.  I'm so thankful for that but, because it's so busy, I've not gotten a schedule down for my new job, my blog (which is very dear to me along with all of you!), homeschooling my youngest who's a junior this year, and what ever else pops up in life.  I promise I won't be this quiet for too long.  
Another thing I haven't mentioned to you all yet (because they haven't released it yet) is that I'll be blogging once a month for a local shopping complex.  They have given me the topics for the next several months and I can't wait to share them all with you!  So stay tuned!
