Kitchen Gadgets


Part of my New Year resolutions was to learn how to cook and it seems I have developed a passion for it. Granted I am still no pro, but at least I am enjoying myself and others seem to like it. What more can I ask for? Well, I have decided that if I continue on my quest and become a kitchen guru then I will treat myself to some of these goodies...

1. Goldtouch Bakeware / 2. Santoku Knife / 3. Silpat Liner / 4. Mixing Bowls / 5. Immersion Blender / 6. Recipe Box

I love the sugar paper recipe box. I have been lusting over that for a while.

I'm still learning my way around the kitchen, and just got the cutest recipe book a few months back. It does make cooking a bit more exciting now! It has a lovely 1950-esque image on the cover with section dividers, pages for writing and slips for magazine cut outs... *sigh* I love it!

LOVE that pink recipe box...everything really!!!

I can't rave enough about the Silpat. If you want to splurge, this is what you should put your money on. It's amazing. Never a burnt cook again. I swear.

I love kitchen gadgets. I go crazy in Williams Sonoma. That pink recipe card box is adorable!

Melissa said...

I love my Silpat mats-- and I really want an immersion blender!

That's wonderful that you are learning to cook, and enjoying it. :)
I adore that little recipe box.

I enjoy collecting kitchen gadgets and cookbooks. I have never seen a big recipe box. I like the splash of color. Happy Cooking! xo

I'm thinking I may need a few of those things. I love to cook- but haven't been very inspired lately. But I did mix up some homemade cookies yesterday. Reminded me of how much I love to bake.

Now I am off to clean the kitchen!

Haven and Home said...

Maybe if I had these I would be more inclined to cook!

Brandi said...

I vote for you buying some of these things. They will help you become a kitchen guru. I used to be an awful cook and baker, but when I started to get things of this sort, I began to force myself to figure out ways to use them, and I have to say, my skills have drastically improved (so much that I daydream about culinary school).

Char said...

I need to break down and get an immersion blender. i hear they are quite the thing.

Sunny Jones said...

1,3, and 5 were all wedding gifts that I can't get enough of! I'm a cooking NUT so they were such fun to play with :) williams sonoma is a magical place!

Tara said...

I definitely agree with the other girls. Get a Silpat - you'll be so glad you did!

Cassie said...

Loving that pink recipe box - might make me keep those great ones I always seem to find in magazines and then forget to cut out!

I also swear by the Silpat. I always thought prep bowls were too much work,but they actually make cooking much more enjoyable!

I LOVE kitchen gadgets. Serious! That silpat liner is a must, go get it NOW! And if your husband is not happy, blame me! :) Everything else is also wonderful. Williams Sonoma is a candy store for me.

So, I just did a link to you from my blog on a post you did a bit ago. Hope that is ok with you! Have a happy day.

MaryBeth Hughes said...

thank you for highlighting these. i am in the midst of registering and always looking for great finds.

Design Darling said...

i don't know the first thing about cooking but that hot pink recipe box might just change everything...

Blair said...

I am so glad that you are enjoying yourself! Adore the recipe box! Happy Monday. xx

Kayna said...

Everyone *swears* by those mixing bowls. A lot of bang for $38 bucks.

Cooking was a resolution for me too! I'm glad we're both apparently enjoying it!

I have got to come up with some new recipes.. since the baby I have really been bad about cooking and if I do cook it is the same thing over and over again. Have you found any super fabulous recipes or any fav cooking blogs?
Maybe we should all do a recipe blog post swap or something... that would be fun!!!!
You def should get a santoku knife if you don't have one they are fabulous. I LOVE the Global knives at William Sonoma.. they are expensive but soooo worth it! Those are the ones that Giada uses. And I'm really digging that recipe box!

What a darling recipe box to keep up with your kitchen adventures!

The Zhush said...

I have that knife! And it has changed everything for me! everything!

Pinecone Camp said...

I'm not too great at making dinner, but I'm a pretty good baker! Love baking. That little recipe box is adorable.

Katie said...

Good choices! Definitely will need some good tools/fun things to motivate cooking! You can do it! Just keep trying!

LindsB said...

I love that pink box, that would make me want to cook all the time!

Emily said...

I love all these things and have them on my registry list! of course, not sure that will make me a better cook, but i feel like if i have hte equipment, the talent will just appears!! ha

Melina said...

I too love my Silpat, but I use my goldtouch bakeware almost everyday. It washes like a dream and things don't seem to stick as bad as any of my regular bakeware. Don't get me wrong, you really can't go wrong with anything on your list. I love my knife and my blender. Who am I kidding, I love all things kitchen-related. Needless to say, I'm needing that recipe box.

pennyrounds said...

I have two sets of those mixing bowls and I use them everyday! They are amazing, especially at that price!

christi said...

yes! you should! i LOVE all of them. i'm also a firm believer in good gadgets make cooking easier. but don't let yourself fall into the trap of too many gadgets. i've learned that i use my chef knife for nearly everything ... not need for a garlic press, chopper, etc. way to go with cooking!

Kelly said...

I (asked for) received an immersion blender for Christmas. Love it! Milk shakes for the boys, soups for us. I don't have a food processor and hated the mess of using the blender. I have used it more than I even thought I would.
