Tool: Immersion Blender

posted in: homemaker | 0

I suppose it’s not technically an essential tool, but it is one I use all the time: my immersion blender. I put off buying one for years, though my friends mentioned using theirs regularly. After I bought one, I knew I would never be without one again. How do I use my immersion blender? Let me count the ways To puree some soups, like roasted root vegetable, butternut squash, and pea soup. To thicken up some other soups, like bean … Read More

Review: Misto Oil Spritzer

posted in: homemaker | 0

When I was scrutinizing my master grocery list, eyeing just how many items I could eliminate, I noticed “cooking spray.” “Cooking spray should be an easy thing to eliminate,” I thought. Turns out I use it a lot. Sometimes you don’t know these things until you do without. In our early years of marriage I didn’t buy cooking spray; I thought of it as a luxury item. But back then I also kept Crisco on hand and used that to … Read More

Review: Managers of Their Homes by Terri Maxwell

posted in: homemaker | 8

This 175-page spiral-bound book by Steven and Teri Maxwell has been around for over ten years now. I’ve seen ladies (online only) mention their “MOTH schedule,” looked at a few online, and shrugged. I saw that the format was that you schedule out in columns what each member of the family is doing — including babies — and thought, “Ah, well, I could do that on my own if I wanted to make up a schedule.” And, when I have … Read More

Essential Tools: Kitchen Shears

posted in: homemaker | 0

One of the most handy tools to have in the kitchen, beyond the essentials, is a good set of kitchen shears. From slitting open a pack of bacon, to cutting those strips of bacon in half, to snipping herbs and trimming fat off of meat. Use scissors instead of a pizza wheel to cut pizza. I don’t own a pizza wheel. Instead, I use scissors to quickly and cleanly cut pizza slices. Fewer tools, but multi-purpose tools, makes for a … Read More

Essential Kitchen Tools

posted in: homemaker | 0

While we all have our own little favorite kitchen gadgets, there are only a few real kitchen essentials necessary for a smooth-running, productive kitchen. A pared-down kitchen tool drawer is easier to keep organized, clean, and useful. The fewer tools you own means your reliable stand-bys are at hand, not buried in a quagmire of random doodads. At least half the knives on the market, as well as a good percentage of the rest of the kitchen equipment sold for … Read More

Essential Kitchen Tools: Pastry Scraper

posted in: homemaker | 0

One of my favorite lesser-known kitchen tools is a pastry scraper. I bought mine only a year or two ago and don’t know how I lived without it. It’s the sort of tool you’d find in any professional bread-making or pastry-making operation, but only rarely find in home kitchens, even though Target and Amazon have them cheap. This handy-dandy little tool cleanly divides bread dough on the counter (it’s not sharp, so it’s ok to use straight on the counter); … Read More
