Baking & Kitchen Toys
I had no idea she was going to send this gorgeous apron with it, too!
I own a lot of kitchen appliance, gadgets, tools, and items and see this post for my favorites
From my spiralizer
To my knives and dehydrator
To my Vita-Mix
I use my Vita for making Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
But I one thing I have never owned until now was a Silpat.
Thank you so much, Ari, for making me feel like more of a real baker. And also for the gorgeous apron. It’s almost too pretty to wear!
I have been working on a recipe and I can’t wait to test it out on my new Silpat.
I can’t wait to try the Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan, GF) on it
And of course, I need to make a batch of Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, for quality control purposes, of course, on my new toy. I’m thinking I may need to pick up a second (and third) toy, too!
From my last post on the Fruit & Food Tips, thanks for sharing your tips and tricks. It’s always nice to share our little gems with each other and make someone’s life a bit easier and smoother.
And now, to pay it forward, so to speak, the Three Winners of my Attune Foods Healthy Free Food Giveaway are:

1. Have ever worked with a Silpat?
2. Do you have any baking toys, cooking toys, or appliances you love and can’t live without?
In this post, I discuss my love for my Vita and use it almost daily.
However, there are a few appliances that many people covet and ooh and ahh over that I find to be over-rated and I don’t use mine. At least for me personally and my lifestyle they are impractical. Between cooking times and cleanup times, nah, not for me so much. But to each her own.
3. Any appliances you really want?
One appliance that I don’t have and I think I want is a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer.
Like this one
I have a $19.99 Betty Crocker Special, circa 1997. Or maybe that was $9.99 circa 1992. Seriously, cheap and old.
I have heard from some people they actually prefer their cheapie hand mixers to the Big Kahuna Stand Mixers but I’m not so sure. That seems akin to saying I like my Magic Bullet better than my Vita, which is not the case.
So, I am in hot and heavy in lust with these powerful, pretty, grown up machines.
What do you lust after and covet for the kitchen? I’ll also take anything from here.
