A holiday gift guide for foodies this holiday season.
Great Jones Baking Set
This year I brought a world of color into my baking and it was one of the BEST things I have ever done for myself!
I spend lots of time creating in the kitchen and it is essential that the equipment that I use is a workhorse that can withstand lots of wear and tear.
I have had the Holy Sheet Pan, Little Sheets, and Fully Baked sets in both broccoli and blueberry for quite some time now and I love them so much that I have been gifting them to my fellow foodie friends and loved ones this holiday season too.
Technically, in the world of baking, the larger Holy Sheet pans are classified as half-sized sheet pans, but they are big enough for almost any use the home cook or baker can throw at them.
- Dimensions (Broccoli): 17.25" long, 12.25" wide, 2" tall
- Dimensions (Blueberry and Raspberry): 18.5" long, 13.5" wide, 2" tall
The smaller Little Sheets that come in the Sheet Show baking set are probably what I use most from day to day in my kitchen. They are smaller, quarter-sized sheet pans that are perfect for smaller baking jobs, reheating, and even double as a colorful serving dish when transporting food from the oven to the dinner table.
I recently invested in a Raspberry Sheet Show set for myself for Christmas too - I can't wait to photograph some gorgeous Valentine's inspired recipes on those!
Frieling Black Cube Stainless
This stainless steel cookware is so easy to use and effortless to clean - it makes the task of creating delicious meals not only easy but pleasurable too!
Here are my favorite perks of cooking with Black Cube Stainless :
- 3-ply, stainless steel cookware has welded, ergonomic handles, eliminating the need for interior rivets. The cookware’s completely smooth interior looks gorgeous, is simple to clean, and is more hygienic.
- Stay cool handles that REALLY stay cool! I have picked this pan up while it was full of this boiling soup and the handles were as cool as a cucumber. However, if you intend to bake in the oven with it you should absolutley use pot holders.
- Approved for use on all cooktops, including induction.
- Dishwasher and oven safe up to 600° F.
I created a delicious Gluten-Free Tortellini Soup recipe with Meatballs in my Black Cube Stainless and shared it here on This Mess is Ours. Click here to see the post and print the recipe!
I use my Instant Pot almost daily for everything from making hard-boiled eggs or grains like quinoa and rice to making full-blown meals like my Shredded Chicken Taco meat.
There are SO many different Instant Pot versions to choose from these days - classic ones, ones with air fryers built-in, large ones, small ones. It's hard to know what to choose! I have a classic 8-quart Instant Pot and it rarely leaves my kitchen counter because I use it so often.
I have had the same Instant Pot for over 5 years - I have dropped it on a tile floor, dropped it outside in the driveway, bent the outer housing, crisis crossed the country with it twice, cooked in Live cooking demos within, and have NEVER had it fail me, not one time.
Even when it was bent to hell from dropping it on the tile floor. The hubs popped it back into shape and it kept on chugging along.
If you are lucky enough to be gifted an Instant Pot here are a few of my favorite recipes to make in mine for you to try:
- Jammy Instant Pot Collard Greens
- Insanely Easy Shredded Chicken Tacos
- Easy Instant Pot Carnitas
- Instant Pot Applesauce
- Smoky Tomato Tortilla Soup
- Instant Pot Black Bean Soup
Zelite Infinity Knives
I own a literal TON of chef knives and hands down Zelite Infinity Knives are my favorite.
They are super affordable, absolutely beautiful, and come in a wide variety of size ranges so they have a knife for every task and for every size hand.
There is literally nothing worse than a chef's knife that isn't enjoyable to use. If the handle and blade are too large or too small for your task or your hand it makes what could be an effortless task downright laborious, Dangerous even!
I love how beautiful Zelite Infinity Knives are, but the true sign that I love them is that I actually travel with them.
Yes, I am that person that packs her knives and checks them in her bag. Cooking just isn't the same without them for me. Cooking with someone else's knives is the equivalent of driving someone else's car in my opinion- awkward, clunky, and off-putting.

Seeds should be stored in a dry environment where bugs can't get to them which makes this organizer perfect.
Technically this is a storage system for photos, but it just happens to be perfect for seed storage too. I was gifted one a few years ago and quickly invested in 2 more.
Keeping our seeds sorted by type, season, and variety is super helpful when it comes to planning our garden. With 16 very large garden beds, planning and organization are an absolute must.
We plan to spend a lot more time covering garden projects here on the pond in 2022, so stay tuned for updates. But, if curious about the projects we have built out on the property thus far like the greenhouse, the moon garden, or the cocktail cabin click here.
Terra Cotta Watering Spikes
If you love indoor plants or have a greenhouse like we do, you probably spend a lot of time watering plants.
These are the exact terra cotta watering spikes we have and I LOVE them.
You simply fill empty glass bottles with water then turn them upside down into the spikes. The terra cotta naturally releases the water over time. Which means more time inbetween waterings for you!
