Kitchen GEAR WE LOVE:  

  1. Yonanas Machine. *Use the code: JANE for a discount until 12/31/18! This holiday gift is a completely different experience of  healthy ‘ice cream’, honestly, it is soft serve. Soft Serve – not banana soup- but creamy, dreamy soft serve!
  2. Tovolo Mini Scoop and Spreader. OH,  do we LOVE this little rubber spatulas and or spreader. It is exactly what we have needed for years.
  3. Citrus Reamer. My mom prefers this tool for  lemons, limes and all things citrus that need to be juiced. I prefer #3!
  4. Lemon Press. This gets SO much action at my house. The acid from all the lemons and limes I juice has removed the paint from the press!
  5. Zester/ MicroplaneThis tool adds ZEST, LIFE, VIM and VIGOR to your food. It is magic. There are many inspiring colors to choose from, too!
  6. Parchment Paper. This may sound dull, but do not underestimate this stuff. It saves you 1000’s of calories as it replaces greasing a pan; it saves you 1000’s of hour in clean up, and your food still browns. I love it when our kids whip out the parchment paper  when they are cooking! A good habit in action.
  7. Wooden Handle Potato Masher. This mini arm workout feels best with a wooden handle. It doesn’t slip as much in my opinion.  Boil potatoes, mash potatoes, eat potatoes, check out your triceps.
  8. Apple Slicer. This moves apples and pears through your home. Place it next to the fruit bowl and watch the games begin.
  9. Melon Baller. Our favorite appetizer, Smoky Little Devils, demands an awesome melon baller in order to scoop out the wee B-sized potatoes. This baller is up for the task!
  10. Pastry Knife. This tool makes kitchen clean up a whiz after pizza night, chili night, biscuits cutting, or anytime your teens have invaded the kitchen. My husband loves this tool – puts him in a good mood!
  11. Immersion Blender. This is a magic wand. Such a helping hand. It thickens, grinds, blends and makes whatever is in the pot more flavorful…while only adding one item that needs cleaning.
  12. Ginger /Garlic Grinding Plate and BrushGrind up these flavor boosting, immune boosting ingredients with ease.  My mom uses this every night when she makes  salad dressing. I can smell it just thinking about it- Yum!
  13. Commercial Grade French Fry Cutter– My father gifted a french fry cutter to each of us one holiday. What love! Now we all have these devices mounted in our homes – some in dangerous places.
  14. Panini Grill we love! My mom loves anything crispy. This machine is a champ at making  almost anything have a crispy exterior – while also being a non-stick surface. The other day I found the kids making waffles using this….needless to say it was a mess!
  15. Brandless! We use Brandless for purchasing pantry staples. We love their whole wheat pastas, organic brown rice, quinoa, parchment paper and more! Visit their website, you will fall in love with them, just like we did! Use this referral code: http://brndlss.life/give6get6
  16. Excalibur Dehydrator:  We love to experiment with nutritious snacks like kale chips, beet chip, tomato chips, onion chips!?!  If you’re interested in an Excaliber tell them Jane sent you! (we are awaiting specific code).
  17. Cuisinart Waffle Maker– is my mom’s favorite. The waffles don’t stick – as long as you WAIT until they are done- which is so hard to do!
  18. Tupperware Food Processor Chopnprep Chef- makes you feel like you are starting a little lawn mower, mini arm workout and all. And this processes your food beautifully, just like a little lawn mower would.
  19. Non-stick Muffin Tins. These are the answer to muffins that do not stick. Sometimes we don’t feel the need to even clean the tin after baking!

Brian’s “plants only” chopping boards   

plants only.

Roughly 18-inches x 12-inches. $75-$95

Smaller “plants only.” Chopping Boards: Roughly 12-inches x 9-inches. $60-$70
