Here is my current kitchen favorites list. Happy cooking!
Shirt Bib – toddlers be messy!
I don’t like traditional high chairs. They take up too much space for me and are hard to clean. I have this. I like that I can throw it in the shower and clean it really well. Just keep it far enough away from the table the your kid can’t push back and fall.
“Sippy cups” we do straws only (I don’t like anything that teaches a skill they won’t use later like biting to get water out. No hard spouts)
Munchkin weighted straw but I remove the weight pretty early so they don’t learn to tip and drink from a straw. I find these leak after a while so I tried these. I like them a lot but you can’t remove the weight without cutting the straw.
Not spill proof but I like these
Coffee Stuff. Trust me, the espresso machine is worth it IF you go to the coffee shop regularly. We spend about $10 every time we go and we went like 2-4 times a week.
Travel mug coffee/tea is hot for the longest time.
Tea pots/cold brew pots
tea pot – Not stove top safe but keeps tea warm
Blender for smoothies
Instant Pot (I have both… and I totes have used both at the same time) These are also nice when you are cooking for a crowd and your stove isn’t big enough. You can sauté and keep stuff warm for a long time. 6 qt or 8 qt
Immersion blender with Food processor. I have an OLD one that doesn’t look like it’s made anymore. This one looks the closest to what I have.
Hand Mixer – I have a hand mixer similar to this
Kitchen Aid Mixer– I just bought one from a neighbor. I love it so far. They are big and expensive so I bought used.
Spiralizer– a neighbor just gave me hers and it looks like this one. I love it for potatoes, zucchini, sweet potatoes. Lots of fun stuff!
Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven – I mean, you can use this for everything.
