tasks like blending together ingredients, chopping large amounts
of ingredients, etc.

Flexible Cutting Boards
- these type of cutting boards are my
favorite because they are easy to clean and easy to store.

I use these for baking as well as roasting
vegetables and meat.
Silpat baking sheet
- Put these on top of your baking
sheets and clean up will be much easier and your food will cook
Love these for cookies and baked goods of course,
but also great for adding a glaze to cakes and fit into a baking
sheet to catch the excess.
- these work for cutting up vegetables, dried
herbs, cooked meats and when my kids were smaller I used them
often for cutting spaghetti noodles.
a very versatile utensils you'll be using a lot for
tossing salads, turning meats and more.
Glass Measuring Cups
-You'll use this often for melt or cooking
things in the microwave as well as measuring liquids.
ironically I use this more often for
grating onions and not cheese.
Easy storage and great for quick jobs.
- If you like garlic in what you are cooking, this is
a must in your kitchen too!
Silicone Rubber Spatulas
- love these! Buy several in different
sizes so you can use them for small and large jobs.
13x9 Baking Dish-
A dish you'll use for baking as well as

prefer the nonstick type and love having a lid included to carry
to potlucks or store in the fridge.
