Ok, so I love doing these gift roundups for you guys. I know it’s a little silly, but I just love sharing with you the things that I enjoy most in my kitchen!
(If I was Oprah, I would be giving you all one of each of these!! As it is, I can only give you my thoughts. But I still want to share!)
If any of you are still trying to figure out what to give the foodies in your life, here are some ideas for you!
(And if you have or sign up for a trial of Amazon Prime, you can get these to your door in 2-3 days. Plenty of time for some last minute Christmas shopping!)
The very very top of my favorite things list, is my beloved Cuisinart 3-in-one Multi-Cooker.
I know I’ve talked about this before, but you guys, this thing is amazing. Not only is it a great 6qt slow cooker, it is also an electric skillet and steamer. You know how many slow cooker recipes still want you to brown meat on the stove before you put it in the slow cooker for the day? Well, now you can do that all in one spot. You really can’t beat that!
The next item on my list is my beautiful, dreamy, 7 qt. Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. It is a piece of art, really. More than that, it is my friend. I couldn’t work without her!
And really, any Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer is a great gift. If your loved one has a small one, upgrade them! If they don’t have one, spoil them!! This is my favorite classic mixer, if you don’t need a 7 qt. powerhouse.
Ok, that’s enough of the big guys. On a smaller scale, here are some more of my kitchen favorites.
This wooden pastry board (or rather, one similar to it that I have had for years!) is one of my most treasured kitchen items this year.
With the constant chaos of feeding my family 24/7 (or so it seems!), I can always have a clean, ready to go workspace with this board. I wipe off a counter, pull this beautiful board out and I am ready to go, no matter what the state of the rest of my counters. I love it!
On a similar note, I am completely in love with my bench scrapers.
If you have ever tried to clean up a flour and dough covered counter, you know what I mean when I say that it is not fun. Flour+water=glue, right? These bench scrapers solve that problem perfectly. They also cut beautiful, uniform brownies and bars!
And my last favorite kitchen item this year… is my beloved Cuisinart Hot Water & Coffee Maker.
I know most everyone these days is head-over-heels for their single-serve Keurig-style machines, and I think they are fun too, but in my life, a cup of coffee at a time is just not going to cut it. I drink my coffee by the bucket-full.
(I do have 3 little kiddos who are allergic to sleep, you know!)
I also use my hot water every day. Instant oatmeal, hot tea, hot chocolate… cup-o-noodles. I actually tossed out my hot water kettle, because this is just so much easier!
And there you go, friends! These are a few of my favorite things (I hope that song is playing through your head like it is mine!) and last-minute gift ideas…
Now I want to hear yours! What are some of YOUR favorite kitchen items?
