I spend a ton of time in the kitchen during the holidays. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s my hands are either baking, cooking, or washing dishes. Since I spend so much time in the kitchen, I try and make sure to save a little energy too by having the right tools for the job I am doing. So I am sharing my top 10 Must Have Kitchen Tools for Holiday Cooking.
If I know I am going to be baking all day, I try and use my crock pot for dinner. I know I will be exhausted by the evening and won’t want to cook anymore. And you know if I am baking cookies, I am most assuredly going to be using a non-stick mat so my cookies don’t stick and they look perfect for gifting to friends and family.
