Gluten-free oats are processed in a facility that doesn’t not process gluten-containing grains. This is the least expensive place I have found to purchase them.
This delicious whole-grain is extremely versatile, lending itself well to both sweet and savory dishes.

I’ve worn out more than my share of blenders and was very happy to finally find one that not only did a good job, but could stand up to heavy use.
The Blendtec blender is a high-powered, heavy-duty, 1560 watt blender with 3 peak horse power.
My crock pot is another tool that gets used nearly every day at my house. We love the convenience of putting beans or grains in the crock the day before and having a hot meal ready and waiting for us the next day.
The Instant Pot is 6 tools in one!
1. An electric pressure cooker – Put the food in, set the desired cooking time, press start. It turns off automatically and keeps your food warm until you’re ready to eat.
2. A slow cooker – like a crock pot, but with a stainless steel insert. You can set the timer to automatically change from cook setting to keep warm.
3. A sauté pan – so you can do all your cooking in one pan.
4. A rice cooker – one of the best on the market and, of course, it’s programmable.
5. A steamer – so you can make perfectly steamed veggies.
6. And it keep foods warm – You can have your food cook while you’re at work and when it’s done the Instant Pot will change from “cook” to “keep warm” so you have a hot meal ready and waiting.
I like mine because it seems safer than a regular pressure cooker. I also like the auto keep-warm feature.
I like both the KitchenAid 11-cup Food Processor and the Breville 16-cup Food Processor. These are powerful, versatile, and efficient kitchen tools. Read more about how to choose a food processor here.
With my food processor I can make these Skinny Scalloped Potatoes in 15 minutes. Click here for more about saving time with food processor.
A garlic press makes adding fresh garlic to your recipes super fast and super easy. Just place the clove in the press – peel and all – and squeeze the handles together, and out comes crushed garlic. (The skin gets left in the press.)
When purchasing a garlic press, be sure it comes with a cleaner. With a cleaner, it takes less than 5 seconds to clean under running water; but without one this job can be difficult.
Measuring cups and spoons seem like a small, insignificant part of cooking … until recipes don’t turn out quite right because of using inaccurate measuring.
A quality set of measuring cups and spoons is essential for good results in baking and cooking. I highly recommend stainless steel for dry ingredients and glass (rather than plastic) for liquids. The fact that they hold up longer and are easier to use more than justifies the little extra they cost.
Having a tortilla press means I can make my own beautifully-shaped, perfectly-thin, gluten-free tortillas at home using ingredients that I want to use. And it’s so fast. I can press 8 wraps in less than 2 minutes.
I really like my veggie chopper and it has saved me countless hours in the kitchen – plus it makes very pretty soups and salads. (All the veggies pieces come out matchy matchy.) It can cut my chopping time to less than half.
The one thing I don’t like about the veggie chopper is the base isn’t as durable as I think it should be. But, I guess I’ll live with it because it saves me soooo much time in the kitchen.
No more figuring out what to make for dinner, writing up a grocery list, or checking to see if you have the right ingredients. I’ve done all the planning for you so you can always have a delicious and nourishing meal in less time!
