5 Great Gift Ideas

Here are five of my favorite gift ideas💡this year! I am so glad that I treated myself to these helpful goodies!

With the V-slicer, you can cut apples,🍎potatoes and more into impossibly perfect thin slices, which makes everything taste better!

A fork won’t ever cut it again for whisking now that I spoiled myself with this whisk for whisking eggs, sauces and more. It’s as gorgeous as it is useful! This whisk by Machenzie Childs has a beautiful handle, which makes time in the kitchen even more  fun!

This pretty butterfly strainer is also by Mackenzie Childs. For as often as you use a strainer (like, every day!) it is so worth the splurge!

A KitchenAid stand mixer is SO worth every penny! The KitchenAid can turn heavy whipping cream into cream for topping pies in minutes in the flip of a switch.

The salad dressing shaker has gotten me inspired to make more and more of my own natural salad dressings with fresh ingredients. I love adding in freshly squeezed lemons, oranges and more! Here is a great recipe:

Honey Orange Salad Dressing
1 tablespoon honey
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice of one fresh orange
1 shallot, thinly sliced
Pink Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground peppercorns, to taste.
Combine all ingredients in salad dressing shaker until thoroughly combined.
