A Kitchen Meme

Let's see if this goes anywhere....

I'm starting a meme of sorts. Tell us what your favorite thing in your kitchen is.

If you want to play along, leave me a comment and pass on the love to a friend or two. The only rules to play by are that you need to post a picture of your favorite thing in your kitchen AND post a recipe to go with it in which you use the said favorite.

Okay here's mine! I've got two favorites...

My KitchenAide and my Pampered Chef chopper thingy.

I use my KitchenAide daily, well almost daily. My grandma gave it to us for our wedding and as much as I want the pink breast cancer awareness one, I'm keeping this one until it smokes. It still runs as good as the day I got it 8 years ago.

My Pampered Chef chopper thing is the best invention ever! This is actually my second one I've owned. I use it too much. When a recipe says chop I am delighted to chop.
Bring it on! The only problem...as you can see I need a new one, anyone sell PC stuff??

Okay well here's my recipe where I used BOTH of my favorite kitchen things! By the way, I make breakfast muffins every Monday and these by far are the house favorites...oh and I added 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed with the flour.


1 c. flour, sifted
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1 c. chopped apples, pared
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 - 1 c. golden raisins (opt.)
1/2 - 1 c. walnuts (opt.)


1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. Beat egg and milk together; add to flour mixture. Add remaining ingredients except topping. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Prepare topping and sprinkle on muffins before baking. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Yield: 12 muffins.

Can't wait to see what your favorite kitchen thing is and what recipe you post! I'm hoping the following will play along....



Cool...I will get to this soon.

Keep smilin!

I'm so glad my name wasn't on your list. I'm horrible about doing stuff like this. Although I will tell you that my favorite kitchen item is my electric chopper thing. It's like a mini food processor. It makes dicing an onion a breaze!! No pics or recipes...sorry!

I love this...you saw my post yesterday....love being in the kitchen and love food!

I use the same pampered chef chopper...I have had it for almost 13 years and we use it for everything!

Thanks for the recipe...looks good!


I used to have one of those choppers, too! They make quick work of any chopping assignment.

My favorite thing in my kitchen is my husband!!! He's a great cook.


Hi Kayce --

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog - I'm happy that you stopped by and that I found your site.

As for the kitchen item, I'd have to agree 100% with Joannah and say my husband as well. I'm a terrible cook and avoid it all costs. Otherwise it would be my purse (which lives in the kitchen) b/c it contains keys and a wallet, both of which will take me out for dinner :-)

Have a great day - kelly :-)

Shawn got me a KitchenAid mixer for our new home. I have to now figure out how to use it.

Oh gosh, I just saw my name! ;) I better get a meme out! Gosh, I have to be honest, I don't spend too much time in the kitchen. I love baking at the holidays, but other than that is take-out for me :)
