There are some things I absolutely cannot live without in my kitchen. Absolutely! So today I’m going to share 3 of them with you!

Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender & Chopper – This is the bad boy I use for all of my smoothie making! I posted our favorite smoothie recipe on my personal blog a few weeks ago – Chocolatey Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothies. They are as good as they sound, yo! Not only is the Ninja good for smoothies, but it can whip up some fluffy mashed potatoes, fire-y salsa, chunky guacamole – you name it! It’s a food processor and blender all in one, with several different bowl sizes and blades. LOVE.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer – I received my Kitchen Aid as a wedding gift from my awesome Mother-in-law, and I don’t think I realized what a gift it was at the time. I mean I was only 27, and had NO idea! I’m happy to say that my mixer lives on my counter, right next the coffee maker (which is saying a lot, because my coffee maker is my most favorite thing, next to my kids and husband…..). I use it to make bread, cookies, cakes (you know, all those things I’m not supposed to be eating all the time!), etc.

Pampered Chef 1-cup glass prep bowls – I use these every.single.day. They are 1-cup sized, have measuring marks, and are perfect for everything. If I’m baking with the kids, I’ll pre-measure everything out into the bowls (there are 6 in a set) and let the kids follow the recipe and do the dumping. When we have taco night, I’ll dice up my tomatoes, and get all my prep bowls full of all the stuff we’ll need to build our own tacos at the table. Tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce, green onions, etc. Then if there’s anything left, I can just pop the lids on and stow them in the fridge. They also stack quite nicely. Lately, my favorite thing to do on grocery shopping day is come home, wash and dice all my veggies, and store them in these bowls. Then everything is ready for a quick salad, or a stir-fry, or even just for snacking. Did you know that diced raw zucchini is so much fun to munch?

I’m always looking for new kitchen favorites, so leave a comment (with a link if you have it) telling us your absolute favorited things for the kitchen!
