Kitchen Hacks and Time Savers
Starting to feed your baby is exciting, but also daunting! I love the idea of making my own baby food and this food maker does it all! It steams and chops. That means that you’re really not doing anything except putting the veggies into the machine. Babies are expensive and this bad boy makes life easier. Not to mention all the money you’ll save on baby food!
For a long time I had one of those cheap Mr. Coffee makers that I got for free. It did the job okay, but back then I didn’t make coffee every day. I love this Cuisinart coffee maker. It also has a side to warm water, if you have a tea drinker in the house. This bad boy makes the perfect cup of coffee! Say goodbye to burnt coffee from those cheap coffee makers!
I’m not sure how I lived without a good stand mixer. I used to have one that simply got the job done, but it shook when I used it for making dough. It made me not want to use it! Once I got this stand mixer, I began to use it all the time. It’s so easy. You can make all sorts of dough for cookies, biscuits, cakes, and so much more.
An immersion blender seems like something frivolous, until you’ve tried to make soup in a blender or food processor. Some of my favorite kinds of soups are blended soups. I used to suffer through making them in my blender, and I seriously always made a mess. Not to mention, I always burned myself. I love making a big batch of soup: butternut squash, beet, broccoli, mushroom, and so much more!
If you love delicious coffee, then you’re definitely not buying pre-ground coffee. You can get so many amazing coffee beans out there, and with this little bad boy you can grind your own beans and never worry about buying whole beans again.
I love espresso and I used to waste a ton of money buying espresso drinks. Sure, it’s fun to go out and get a great espresso drink, but it’s also amazing to make your own. This is such a great piece of equipment and so easy to use.
A crock pot is one of those things someone buys you when you go live on your own, but trust me when I say you need to be using it. It will be your best friend on a busy day. All you need to do is put a bunch of ingredients in there, season them, cover it, and set it. That is it! The slow cooker does the rest of the work. You can make some rice or pasta to go along with it, but it is not necessary.
BONUS ITEM! This is one of those fun things that will revolutionize your life. It’s an electric ice maker that makes ice in six minutes. What seems to always break in your fridge? The ice maker of course. What if you don’t even have one? You’re stuck with those trays! This bad boy makes 26 lbs of ice per 24 hours. It’s perfect for all of those holiday parties!
