Works for Me Wednesday!!!

You have no idea how addictive this is. I literally spend all week trying to think of the perfect tip to give and let me say that I usually can come up with tons, right until the morning of. For some reason my mind takes extended leave and I'm drawing a blank. How annoying!!!

Anyway, for those who are reading this for the first time, one of my favorite bloggers, Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer, came up with this theme called "Works for Me Wednesday" in which you share your tips or advice or whatever, that make your life easier.
For a list of all the participants, check out her site, I will also add your links to mine if you leave me a comment letting me know that you're playing too.

Here's mine for this week.

I have tons of different cooking gadgets, slow cooker, turbo cooker, George Foreman Grill, Rotisserie etc. To make room on my counters and so it doesn't look cluttered, I have these neatly stored away in my kitchen cabinets, BUT the problem is that I tend to forget they exist.

So I've started taking one out each week or two and then I find recipes for them and use it as much as I can. Once that time is up, it gets stored back in it's place and out comes another one.
I've found that this way, I'm actually using them all, trying out different recipes AND I don't just let them collect dust. Works for Me!!!!

If you play along, let me know and I will put up a link here too :)


  1. Great idea. My mom is always complaining about not using what she has to cook with I will be sure to share that with her!
    I to am addicted to these. I think about it all week as well. I thought it was just me having no life!!! LOL!!!!!

  2. That is a good way to get out of the "cook slump" that I get in sometimes- ALWAYS only using the same gadget thus the same recipe time & time again! Oh and I could definitely use more counterspace- who couldn't!???

    Thanks for visiting my blog, too- yours is SO cute!

  3. Great idea...I too store mine and forget to use them.... my crock pot and my bread maker are the main ignored ones! :(
    Love the new duds....! Very Summery! Makes me wanna go garden a while. :)
    Thanks for visiting!

  4. This is a great idea! My bread machine is especially ignored. I've used it twice since we got married!
    Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog.:-)

  5. I think I used my crock pot about five years ago. I know people who can't live without them but I just must need to find a few no-lose recipes to get the brain going. Thanks!

  6. I like this tip a LOT!

    mine are up

  7. I think my juicer cries in the does my steamer. Both great little appliances, and they sound like they'd get fantastic lovin' at your home!! :)

  8. I love this idea and plan on doing this starting today. I know my appliances will love me. I also have a WFMW on my blog. LOVE your blog, it gives me such a happy feeling.

  9. GREAT IDEA - i have so many things forgotten and dusty - including the foreman grill...

  10. That is a good idea to pull them out. I would never know I had a bread machine if it weren't to make rolls one Sunday a month.

    LOVE the air infusions. My FAVORITE is Clean Laundry. Mmmmm...the whole house smells like I just did laundry. Nice.

  11. Oh, I am going to visit your menu blog. Thank you for telling me about it!

  12. Good idea! It seriously is a pain to keep dragging those things in and out of the cupboards. My family will especially love when I deep fry several days in a row!

  13. I love this idea. I have a very tiny kitchen and some of my small appliances are stored in a kitchenette area in my basement. Out of sight, out of mind. This will probably get me to be more creative!

  14. There is no way I could ever forget my crock pot. No, we don't want all those ugly work machines sitting out on the counters. Good idea to rotate them!

  15. Just when I'd given them all away! Ah well, I never used them anyway. And my crock pot, mixer and blender are here to stay.
