Portable Battery Base for Echo
This portable battery base makes it easy to take your Echo with you when you go. Whether you are outside stringing Christmas lights, headed to the beach, or cooking on the grill, you can easily take your music with you. It's also great for a night sitting outside by the fire with a drink in hand and food that you made using this website.
Amazon Echo is a wonderful tool to have in the kitchen! I use mine daily to set timers, re-order supplies, and listen to music while I cook. It's also great for checking the day's forecast before I launch into making candy. It's not one of those things that you have to have; but it is one of those things that once you have it, you wonder how you managed without it.
Even though I’ve just gotten this mixer, I am in love! There’s a bit of a learning curve after using a regular mixer for so long; but the more I use this, the easier it is. I’ve never had dough turn out so smooth or frostings so creamy. I highly recommend this mixer!
This is a handy little machine! Not only does it make beer, it is also a sous vide! Talk about getting more for your money!
I use this handy little scoop for everything from portioning out cookies and muffins to serving ice cream to making melon balls. It comes in three sizes to suit my every need (yours too!).
This is an incredible blender! It chops, blends, purees, heats, cools, cleans itself (with a little help). Caylie uses it daily to make smoothies and iced coffees. I use it to make frozen drinks for parties. We use it to make sauces, pestos, and creamy soups. There are so many options with this blender!
This food processor makes short work of a lot of tasks. I use it to chop, puree, cream, and mix. It’s made by Robot Coupe, which is the commercial brand I had in my restaurants. It has three sizes of bowls that stack neatly together, so it doesn’t take up too much room on the counter. All the accessories come in a neat little case for easy accessibility.
This particular cutting board is the one I used in my restaurants and catering business, and it is the one I continue to use now. These have a really long life and stand up to lots of abuse. It comes in a variety of sizes to suit your particular needs.
This is a great tool for cutting butter into flour, for example, in biscuits or pie dough. It works much better than a fork.
A couche is a heavy linen cloth used for proofing bread dough. It is absolutely indispensable for shaping baguettes! I’ve had mine for years! It just gets better with age.
FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer
This is an indispensable tool in my kitchen! I use it for individually packaging food before freezing, preserving cut fruits and vegetables (even avocado stays fresh and bright green), repackaging cheeses, and cooking in my sous vide.
EVERIE Collapsible Hinged Sous Vide Container Lid
An indispensable addition to your rubbermaid container for cooking sous vide! It holds the heat in and keeps the water from evaporating, which is great when you want a really long (24 hours) cook time. It has a handy little built in nook that fits the Joule perfectly.
Rubbermaid Commercial Food Storage Container
While your sous vide can be used in a pot, I prefer giving it its own separate container. These fit the bill perfectly and come in a variety of sizes to suit your individual needs. I personally have the 18 qt. because I like to throw in quite a few items at a time or sometimes just 1 really big item (roast, Boston butt).
ChefsSteps Joule Sous Vide
This has turned out to be one of the handiest kitchen appliances that I own, and it greatly simplifies my life. We use it almost daily. It cooks foods (meats, vegetables, eggs, desserts) to whatever degree of doneness you specify in the Joule app, which is a free download. There’s a handy guide that leads you through the whole process. It’s the easiest thing ever! Foods come out tender and perfectly cooked. You only need to season and throw in a cast iron skillet or on the grill to finish.
Lightbulb for Soft Box
Gives off good light. Buy an extra one though because these may pop if they get too hot.
Soft Box Tripiod
This is a decent tripod. Its a little unstable on carpeted areas but it gets the job done.
Sturdy but lightweight as well as easy to put together.
I love this charger. It charges at a decent rate. It’s not super fast, but it is reliable. I recommend buying two so you can charge both batteries at the same time.
Ah, old faithful. What would I be without you? A dead camera, actually. These batteries last. Though, I do recommend buying two because, if you’re like me, you forget to check the battery life before it’s too late.
Canon EF-S 55-250mm Lens
I use this lens the most when it comes to the food blog. It does a wonderful job on the close up shots .
Canon EF-S 18-55mm Lens
This lens is perfect for wide angle shots. I use it most during my everyday photography than the food blog but it is good to have.
We’ve bought probably around ten or twelve of these things, but I only ever seem to use two – one for photography, and one for my Youtube channel. I use the 32GB because I remember reading somewhere in the fine print of my camera that it doesn’t work well with a 64GB. Now, I know you’re saying “but I want the most memory I can get!” and well, yes, I do too; but 32GB holds a mother-load of pictures and quite a few 30 minute long videos.
This tripod might not be the best or most expensive tripod in the world, but it’s done its job to perfection. I’ve dropped it, tossed it, kicked it, and just in general abused it, and still this poor tripod has held out. Plus, having a level on two sides of the tripod makes my life easier!
Canon EOS Rebel T6i
I prefer this camera to any other camera I’ve had in the past. It’s simple to use and pretty self explanatory. I am no where near a camera expert, but this camera could easily be used by pros and beginners alike.
