Scrubbers are always a necessity in the kitchen. I have several different types. I have a bottle brush (great for shaker bottles and my smoothie straws) and these little short ones. Add pops of color to your sink.

Who doesn’t love wooden utensils? There’s just something about them that reminds me of my Mamo and her cooking. When I “attempt” to make Spanish rice I always use a wooden spoon.

This mat is not only functional but aesthetically pleasing. My kitchen chair cushions are in this design! I keep this pad under my drying rack.

How cute is this little owl? I also have a timer shaped like an egg and we use them for different things. They’re really helpful when you’re cooking several things and your oven is being used to time your meal.

I made sirloin steaks a few nights ago and tried turning them every 30 seconds and had my daughter help me keep them straight with the timers.owl kitchen timer

Quick Tip: Chop up extra and save yourself a step for your next meal. You can always add them to your salad.

I have all girls but we still love dinosaurs at our house!

He is adorable.

A great way to get kids involved in cooking is to make it fun and have cook stuff for them to work with in the kitchen.
