Here are the items I cannot live without in my kitchen! I use all of these on a daily/weekly basis!

8-Cup Glass Batter Bowl. I use this batter bowl 2,743 times a day…no joke. I love that it’s microwave and dishwasher safe so it’s great for one-bowl recipes where melting ingredients is required. I mix up so many recipes in this I often wish I had a second one! I also LOVE that it has a lid!

Vitamix!!!! If I haven’t convinced you how much you need a Vitamix I have failed you! If you have any questions about which blender is best for you please shoot me an e-mail! I have blended with my fair share of their models and and would love to help you!

French PressTo me, there is no other way to make a fabulous cup of coffee than with a French Press. I have had this for years and will never make coffee any other way!

Electric kettle.  I use mine to boil water to make coffee every morning {in the above French Press}. I also use it if I need to boil water on the stove in a hurry {like when I make a box of mac and cheese for my kids or cook pasta}! It cuts the boiling time in half!

Ice Cream Maker. This is one of those items that I couldn’t live without!. Absolutely nothing beats homemade ice cream. It’s fresh and fully customizable {i.e. you can put as many peanut butter or cookie dough chunks in it as you wish}!  You will save so much money in the long run making your own dairy-free ice cream at home!

Food processor. I have used my for so many things over the years I can’t even tell you how useful it is in the kitchen. Need to shred 5 lbs of cheese? No problem! Dice a boatload of veggies? Easy peasy. It’s the only way I will make pie crusts because it’s so so easy!

Marble Rolling Pin. I have had this marble rolling pin for 10 years and use it all the time to make homemade pizzas, pie crusts, cinnamon rolls, etc. etc.!

Kitchen Aid Mixer.  I couldn’t imagine baking cookies, whipping cream, etc. without one of these beauties!

Canister Sets. Having baking staples easily accessible in cute canister on the counter is so helpful when it comes to the day-to-day in the kitchen!  I can tell you that being able to just grab a scoop of oatmeal without rummaging through my pantry is totally awesome. 

Le Creuset 5″ Baking Pan. This is an absolute must-have for me. I love mine so much because I use it to make small-batch desserts {like these Fudgy Paleo Brownies}. It’s also cuter than a loaf pan so it’s fun to take pictures of {if you care about that sort of thing…}!

Silicone Jar Spatulas.  I use these for literally everything. 

Wooden Spoons. These spoons are gorgeous and so versatile!

Spatula. Every kitchen needs a great spatula! I have this one and use it for everything!

Magnetic Measuring Spoons! These seem gimmicky but they are SO not. Ritch put a set of these in my stocking many years ago and I love them! If you have a messy kitchen utensil drawer {my hand is way in the air}, these are a life saver! They stick together so you can always find them when you need them!

Measuring Cups! These measuring cups are heavy duty and great to work with.

Oven Mitts! No burns here!

Thermapen! I use this every time I cook meat or make candy!
