KITCHEN TOOLS & MORE




We hope you liked our favorite kitchen decor, we also wanted to share with you our favorite kitchen tools.......Most of my favorite things are basics, they are probably my favorites because I use them all the time. The first one on my list is the 'OXO Salad Spinner', if you don't already have it, you need to go get it! I don't use bagged lettuce but even if I did I would still rinse it and this great little thing just spins all the H2O right out of the lettuce-I think it makes your lettuce a bit more crisp too????? I use my 3 'Pink Mixing Bowls' for just about everything-and every kitchen needs a fun set of mixing bowls. My 'Pink Tongs' I use for so many things from, cooking meat, to pasta noodles, to turning bacon, I found these at Target last year during the month of October when they do all the fabulous pink stuff for Breast Cancer Awareness. Now, my measuring cups may look like your average measuring cups (which I do have) but these are 'Odd Size Measuring Cups & Spoons' like: 2/3 Cup , 3/4 Cup, 1 1/2 Cups and 2 Cups. The measuring spoons are 1/2 Tablespoon, 2 Tablespoons etc. I found them at Williams-Sonoma and they are a must for any kitchen because I use them for almost every recipe. Of course the standard Pampered Chef 'Mini Spatula' is a fav. and my 'Stainless Can Strainer' from Target. The white & black 'Mixing Hands' my mom found for me at Christensen's Home in St. George. They are terrific, I use them to toss and mix salads, pasta, etc. You can also, use them to serve with. Love love
love 'um. My final kitchen favorite is my 'Jillie Willie Apron' it has a little pocket but the greatest thing is it has a small hand towel attached to it-let's face it when I am cooking I am constantly in need of a towel. You can find aprons, kitchen gloves and much more at http://www.jilliewillie.com/ So there you go, there are a few tools from my kitchen that I can't live without!!!! Oh, one more thing I didn't put in there are my 'Wilton Decorating Tools', if you ever decorate cakes or cupcakes you have to have a set!
Love, Marla

P.S. I should have probably put in the apron from Amy as one of my favorites and then I remembered, "Oh, yea I don't have one!!!!!!"

Let us know if there is anything in your kitchen that you just can't live without, because if we don't have it-we need to know about it!

Love, The Tipsy Girls

I just love the pink bowls, I have a set that I picked up at the William-Sonoma outlet store in Primm NV a couple of years ago and I use them for everything. I just love this post as I love kitchen gadgets. I don't really love to cook, I just love to collect kitchen gadgets.

Marla doesn't have an Amy apron?? That just isn't right. I have never seen those mixing hands before. I miss going to Christensen's in St. George since I moved to AZ.

All of your kitchen gadgets are great. I love my mixer because I make bread and cinnimon rolls a lot, especially when Mike comes to visit. He begs and reminds me that he is my "baby"!!!
