Everyone needs a good chef’s knife. With an 8” blade and perfectly balanced, this is my favorite and I use it all the time. When I was displaced by Hurricane Harvey for a few months the one thing I missed the most was my knife.

FLEX EDGE BEATER
I love my mixer and all of the attachments that come with it. Especially this scraper mixer blade This is an amazing mixer because it makes short work of beating, mixing, and blending. I even use it to mix my meatloaf.
KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater
This is the handiest dandiest tool in my kitchen. Perfect for making mayonnaise, blending soups and sauces, making applesauce, I also use it for making a bulletproof style boosted tea.

My mother bought me one years ago and I remember thinking “What the heck am I going to do with it?” Now I don’t know how I’d live without it. I use it to chop everything, including making chopped salads in the summer.
Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor
Perfect for making julienned vegetables and especially for ‘zoodling’ zucchini, butternut squash. I’ve even used it to julienne apples for a shredded apple dessert.

BEES WAX WRAP
As I try to make my kitchen more eco-friendly I’m using less plastic wrap. But I still need to wrap things. That’s why I love these. I have them in different sizes and use them all the time.

I’m not going to lie, I Iove my Vitamix. It gets used almost every day in my kitchen. Sure, it’s perfect for making smoothies, but it’s also great for blending NiceCream (“ice cream” made with frozen banana), homemade almond milk, coconut whipped cream, and more.
I’ve just gotten one and I have a feeling it’s going to be my new favorite appliance. A crockpot, pressure cooker, and steamer all in one? What’s not to love about saving space in the kitchen?
LE CREUSET PAN
I adore my Le Creuset pan. It’s cast iron and enameled. From eggs for breakfast to sautéing veggies for dinner, this pan practically lives on my stovetop because we use it so much.
