PRODUCTS – THINGS WE USE:
Cuisinart Food Processor – We both just got this as early Christmas presents from our men. Aren’t they dreamy? Anyways, we’ve barly skimmed the surface on what this baby can do, but we did extensive research before choosing one, and are sure this will will meet all our needs in the kitchen. We espeically like that it holds 11 cups of food! No more blending things batch by batch in small blenders!
Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker – the world’s easiest ice cream maker. Once you try homemade ice cream, you’ll never go back to store-bought.
Divided Lunchbox Containers (BPA free) – makes packing lunch for the kids to bring to school easy and fun.
Silicone Baking Cups – makes muffin-making easy, reduces waste, + can be used in kids lunches as mini cups for various snacks.
Smoothie Pop Molds – These babies are awesome for freezing yogurt for the kiddos. We like to use plain, whole milk yogurt and then add in honey, peanut butter, or crushed berries Think frozen Go-Gurt, only not full of artificial dyes, sugar, artificial flavorings, and preservatives.
