Useful Kitchen Utensils - Silicone Spatulas


They used to be made of rubber on wooden, or plastic, handles. The old rubber ones lasted a long time. I remember licking the cake batter off Mom's spatula. Yummm. I still prefer batter or dough uncooked!

Now, they are mostly silicone on wooden or plastic handles. The silicone doesn't seem to last as long as the old rubber ones.

The smaller spatulas help you get the last out of that jar of Duke's mayonnaise. The larger ones help you get everything out of the mixing bowl. They are so handy that it's one of those kitchen tools you take for granted and don't pay a lot of attention to. But get at least the two sizes for your kitchen.


My collection of large and small silicone spatulas. You can see my smaller one is getting ragged and it's only a few years old. It's the one I use the most.

Storing Food Storage Plastic Bags

I wanted to empty some drawers in my kitchen which were filled with food storage bags like Ziplocs and food wrap. I searched on Amazon for ideas. I was ready to buy something! But every food wrap storage device had negative comments. They were flimsy, hard to use or didn't tear correctly. So I ended up just getting a bin, having my husband screw it inside a cabinet door for the food wraps. That is working great. But the plastic food storage bags were another thing. I couldn't seem to find anything that organized them and worked. I really can't take credit for the idea that finally came to me. It had to be the Lord because I'm not this inventive. But it suddenly came to me. A cheap way to store and organize. If it doesn't work, I'm only out a few bucks. So I went to the cheapest place and bought some oven mitts. For the smaller food bags, I stuffed some paper towel in the bottom. Then I folded the bags and stuffed them in the mitts. I bought some magnetic hooks at Walmart and hung them on the side of my refrigerator. See what you think.

Useful Kitchen Utensils - Onion Holder



I've cooked since I was 17 yrs old and still don't have confidence in my chopping and mincing. I'm always scared that I'm going to cut myself. So for mincing onions, I use an onion holder. I wish I could be like those chefs on TV who can use their santoku or chef knife to chop and mince with ease. But it's still a job that I'm not proficient at. I feel like I've got 2 left hands when it comes to chopping and mincing. I've often wondered if those finger guards would work and give me the confidence to learn how to use the santoku or chef knives. I tend to use the smaller utility, kitchen and paring knives. But I can really recommend using an onion holder and it's a staple in my kitchen utensils. It's pretty inexpensive considering how handy they are for mincing onions.
