Kitchen gadgets for days!

Ok so it’s been awhile…sorry ’bout that…but Spring is near and planning and purchasing at the garden center is ramping up and this girl has been insanely busy. I’ll try to do better…

Anyway, I’ve been busy but not so busy that I didn’t have time to purchase a ton of pampered chef stuff recently. Has this ever happened to you? I had two of my friends host parties in the last 5 weeks. Online parties at that! I shopped I ordered and now I remember why I love this stuff.

Let’s rewind…a million years ago when my husband and I first got married, I decided to become a pampered chef consultant. And I LOVED it! It was a way to make my favorite hobby, cooking and baking, into a decent little side hustle. Once my school schedule became a little more intense I stopped doing pampered chef, but I still to this day have so many items from my original consultants kit that work perfectly and still look new! It’s amazing!

I have favorites like the spatulas and scrapers, knives, and of course bakeware and stones! I even have a few unnecessary gadgets like the egg slicer, corn butterer (not my fave), garlic press (awesome), and even an awesome little zester thingy that I use a lot more than I thought I would!

One more item I can’t live without the pampered chef dill seasoning mix. It’s freaking amazing! Seriously I use it all the time…come to think of it I should have probably ordered two of those this time lol.

Do you have pampered chef? What are your faves?

PS if you’re a consultant awesome…but I am not interested in joining lol, I’ll just enjoy my shopping experiences thanks!


I think I’m in love with my instant pot! 

So, I received a really nice gift from my mother and father in law, an instant pot! If you’ve never heard of this it’s simply a multi-functional cook pot that resembles a slow cooker. Instead of a crock though the inner pot is coated aluminum, and the lid has a gasket that allows steam to trap inside the pot like a pressure cooker. But besides slow cooking, and pressure cooking, you can steam veggies, cook rice, cook beans and lentils, saute meat, and can be used for canning! 

The nice part about this handy kitchen gadget is it can cook foods that are frozen an it’s FAST! 

I’ve already made chili using frozen meat, and tonight I cooked an entire stuffed chicken in less than hour! It’s amazing!! I feel like a Ronco commercial lol!! Set it and forget it! 😂

So if your looking for a tool that will really make life a little easier in the kitchen consider an instant pot! You’ll love it, just like I love mine! Happy cooking everyone!
