Useful Kitchen Utensils - Serrated Spreading Knife

I never had one of these until about 5 years ago. A salesman came by selling Cutco knives. I bought some and one was thrown in. I ended up liking it so much that I've bought another one ( much cheaper one). A very handy utensil and I recommend everyone have at least one. I can spread the mayo and cut the tomato for a sandwich with the one utensil. A serrated knife cuts tomatoes much easier. And we really do use it. By the way, I've really liked my Cutco knives.

Useful Kitchen Utensils - Potato Masher

OK, I know you can use a hand mixer to whip potatoes. That's great and works well. I still have the original hand mixer that I got when I got married in 1977 and it still works perfectly. I also have my wonderful Kitchenaid mixer. But both of those can create more mess to clean up than it's worth. So I rarely made mashed potatoes. Then I bought an old potato masher. I just liked the look of it. And believe it or not I can use it easily and throw it in the dishwasher. And, if it tears up, no big expense. You can purchase new potato mashers too. But here is my old one.

Ways To Use Wicker Baskets

I really like baskets. For some reason they appeal to me. I have more than I need so I did a Google search to see how people are using baskets to help organize the baskets. Here are the great ideas that I found!




















































































































































































Here are some of the ways I use my baskets and I expect to use some of these ideas for other baskets! The first one is by my door to collect things as I come in or out.





This vintage picnic basket is in my living room holding some seasonal decorations.



This holds outdoor dog coats by the back door.



This holds my craft paints.



This holds pierogi molds in my kitchen cabinet.



I buy my trash bags in Costco so they come in large rolls. I put the roll in this basket.



Laundry basket, of course.



My clothespin basket



This past Saturday, my husband and I went yard sale-ing and I came across a yard sale where the woman was selling her Longaberger basket collection. I wish I had gotten them all. But here are the ones I did get! All of them for $36! I love them!
