Ello, folks! Long time no chat. Super sorry about that but things on my end have been bad. My RA is not under control and life is bonkers, I tell ya! Any who, today I wanted to share the perfect holiday gifts for your home. All of these would be wonderful items to add to your own home or something special for new homeowners. Most of these will have features coming soon so that you can see them in more detail as well as recipes so look for that soon. Let’s get down to it 🙂
The Perfect Holiday Gifts: Home Edition
This year has been tough on everyone because of COVID and more people tend to be eating at home, including myself. I think this is the best thing that we can do right now to help slow the spread and keep our loved ones safe. Below you will find links to my top cooking items for this holiday season that are a MUST HAVE!
One of my total favorite items this holiday season and the best gift for anyone that enjoys cooking as well as tech is the amazing CHEF iQ Smart Cooker. This is so much more than another "instapot". It goes beyond that by adding amazing tech to help you create beautiful dishes that you might not have the confidence to try. The CHEF iQ works beautifully and I love all their amazing recipes. I will have a featured post on this so that you can see it in action but you NEED this in your kitchen. Trust me.

One thing that everyone uses a lot around the holiday is a roasting pan. Not only for Thanksgiving but Christmas as well. We actually use ours a lot when doing veggies as well.
The Reserve Healthy Ceramic Nonstick Roaster with Rack from Green Pan is perfect when it comes to size and one thing I always look at are the handles.
Since I have RA it is important for me to be able to lift the roasting rack and this looks amazing. World-class tech meets minimalist style in the limited edition GreenPan Reserve collection.
This roaster’s Armored Body is extra tough and scratch-resistant while the Goldtone Handles provide a luxe accent. This versatile roaster features our most advanced nonstick coating, Thermolon™ Diamond Advanced, which is infused with diamonds to deliver incredible release and heat response.
One of my husbands FAVORITE items to make mash potatoes is to use a ricer. Not going to lie, I don't eat mashed potatoes but I honestly believe they make the best. They come out super creamy. The Betty Bossi Ricer is perfect because of the design. It makes mashed potatoes with a perfect, velvety consistency in an instant, with little effort. The best thing about it: you don’t even have to peel the potatoes first! This magical kitchen gadget takes care of that too.
When I first say the Blue Diamond Sizzle Griddle online, I had to have it. I love things that can make my life easier and this was it. Since my husband and I both work from home we always have lunch dates which is super cool. Using the griddle I am able to make us literally anything when it comes to sandwiches or even if we want breakfast for lunch. The best part, its dishwasher safe. Total win for everyone.
Hello, Greenlife!!! As most of you know I adore color and Greenlife has some of the most amazing and colorful cookware I have seen in sometime. Just being able to grab a purple muffin pan or pink pot, makes me feel all giddy inside. From healthy ceramic nonstick cookware to time-saving appliances, their eye-catching products bring a pop of color and style to your kitchen so you can truly make any meal your own. Their nonstick coating is free of PFAS, PFOA, lead, and cadmium, so it starts clean and stays clean.
I actually have a posting going live soon on how to customize the Froth Select from Capresso as well as a recipe and I can't wait to share. One thing that really stood out for me when it comes to this frother is that it has simple settings, four to be exact and everything you need. From cold froth, hot froth, hot milk to even hot chocolate. You can do so much with this! If you have a coffee bar in your home this is the perfect addition or if you enjoy cold wintery nights sipping hot chocolate.
One thing we all tend to use a lot no matter if we are at home or away is disposable cutlery. I know during the holidays (this holiday will be different) I use disposable cutlery because honestly, there is always so much to wash. I am in love with the Foodstiks compostable wood cutlery that is made actually from birch wood. This is a perfect alternative and a great thing to keep on hand if you enjoy camping like we do.
Negg®, the world’s #1 egg peeler. The female founders cracked the code on one of food prep's biggest pain points. Who doesn't hate peeling hard boiled eggs? I know I do!! Just a bit of cold water and shaking will do the trick with Negg. I adore this becuase I can no longer peel an egg which totally stinks but using the Negg I am able to get it done in a jiffy. Not to mention they also offer amazing seasonings for your deviled eggs.
In the home edition to our holiday guide I also would like to share two amazingly perfect products for the holiday gifting season or additions to your home.
As most of you know I adore unique items and CannedGood hit the nail on the head with their amazing lineup of soaps for your home. They are so stinking cute! I have put these both in our guest bath and our kitchen.
The soap not only smells amazing but it’s kinda funny because it is also a conversation piece. I can’t tell you how many times someone has come over to see this soap and ask me, “where did you get it”.
CannedGood offers consumers an all natural soap (no icky chemicals orunnatural fragrances) made with essential oils and shea butter,packaged in infinitely recyclable aluminum cans (the average can is68% recycled material!).
Reuse the lid, recycle the can, reduce the plastic waste. They are passionate about bringing a responsible solution to consumers for everyday goods.
The next addition to your home is something that everyone can use, trust me on that one. I don’t know why but some people never really think of towels, I do! I love getting new towels for Christmas and I actually have them on my list this year!
The Macy’s Hotel Collection Ultimate Micro Cotton bath towels is the perfect choice if you are trying to find new towels. I have used these actually for years and I would go with nothing else. They are so soft and when we have guests I do get compliments. I love compliments if I can make my family happy and these certainly do.
My last item for the home holiday guide are these amazing candles. I just adore candles so I had to include one company and this one really stood out for me. An amazing choice this season is the Balsam Fir fragrance.
