There are so many favorite kitchen items that I have, and it just so happens that several happen to be PINK.  So, I went with it and put together a fun basket for you, filled with my favorite pink items!

Favorite things

Let’s see… here’s the goods:

Cuisinart Power Select 7-Speed Hand Mixer – I LOVE my hand mixer.  I had previously spent lots of money on a fancy, RED, uppity name-brand hand mixer.  Eh, I hated it.  It was soooo slow.  I want my whipped cream WHIPPED, not gracefully stirred.  Anyway, I gave that one away, for free.  After reading stellar reviews, I decided to take a chance on this Cuisinart.  I was a little leery because it was cheaper than the one I had.  But, all that worry for nothing… I love it!  It whips so good, I have to be careful not to make butter!  And, that’s just how I like it.  Oh, and it’s pink.

Kuhn Rikon Nonstick Pairing Knife – I have several of these knives in my kitchen.  I love that they’re non-stick, sharp, come with a sturdy cover for traveling or tossing in the drawer, dishwasher safe, affordable, and there are lots of fun colors to choose from.  For example, pink. :)

Nalgene 32 oz. Water Bottle – I have a water bottle fetish.  I’m always carrying water around with me and I have definitely developed a sort of snobbish attitude towards water bottles.  Nalgene is my favorite ever, ever.  I love the big wide mouth, for filling them with ice and making cleaning easier.  I love the big size.  I love how the lid is attached to the bottle, so I can never lose it.  That’s huge for me!  They’re super sturdy… and, they’re the best.  That’s all.

Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags – I go through Ziploc bags like no other.  Okay, well I should say that I WENT through them.  Now, I can save lots of money by using these adorable reusable snack bags.  They’re machine washable!  Fill them with treats, sandwiches, gadgets, whatever you want.  There are all different sizes and patterns to choose from.

Pink Damask Oven and Potholder Set – I love cute kitchen accessories, somehow they seem to add a little extra enjoyability-factor to cooking.  This pink damask set is definitely a favorite!

Haribo Pink Grapefruit Gummies – Mmmmmm…. pink grapefruit gummies.  That’s all there is to say.

What do you think??  Fun stuff??  Okay, here’s how to enter to win MY basket …


There are several ways you can enter, you can choose to enter just once, or multiply your chances to win with more entries.  Good luck!  When you’re done, don’t forget to check out (and enter to win) the baskets from my blog friends!a Rafflecopter giveaway
