I’m pretty sure my kitchen has pretty much every “maker” I could ever need. Quesadilla, Pot Pies, Mini Doughnuts. . . cabinets full of gadget goodness. But there’s always room for more!
You guys have no idea how hilarious it is to watch me try to open a bottle of wine. It’s not that I don’t have any strength in my arms (need to work up those de-corking muscles!) but also that I have tiny little hands trying to maneuver a pointed corkscrew. That’s just dangerous for everyone involved. An electric one that keeps everything a bit more enclosed sounds like a great idea to me. How about you? ($18.00)
Sure, I’d love to dry out my peppers and make beef jerky in one of those fancy five hundred dollar dehydrators with the dozen trays and million settings. But frankly ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that. This one’s a tiny fraction of the price and four trays is plenty for me. Plus I think anything that you can stick into the dishwasher to clean it automatically gets extra cool points. ($36.00)
I’ve gotten REALLY into breakfast sandwiches since changing up to a healthier diet. In a sea of green smoothies, they’re my little island of self-indulgence once or twice a week. Eggs, ham, and cheese pack on the protein and the carb pick-me-up helps me get through chores and exercise nice and early. Right now I’m doing it the hard way though with each piece made individually and put together at the last minute. This little machine (I told you guys I love “makers”!) has a compartment for each part including the egg. Come to Momma you sweet silver gadget, you. ($24.00)
Homemade yogurt without all of the added who-knows-what in it, you say? Sign me up. I didn’t even know this was a thing. I’m thinking banana-pineapple-mango tropical yogurt to pretend Summer lasts forever. We go through quite a bit of yogurt because of what a good snack it is for the kids. This is something I could batch up into small jars and put into the kiddo’s lunch box for school in place of chips. How much fun would it be to get everyone together in the kitchen to come up with their own yogurt recipe? ($25.00)
This cotton candy maker can use more than just the flossing sugar that’s typically used for cotton candy. It can also use whatever favorite candies you toss into it, even sugar free ones. Imagine serving pretty white mint cotton candy “snowballs” around the holidays from throwing in a few peppermints! I think I’d have to drop in a handful of Nerds or maybe lemonheads to start. Or maybe those little orange slices. ($32.00)
