Classic comfort food of Meatballs and Creamy Mushroom Gravy perfect for dinners around the family table.
Sometimes dinner comes together so easily and sometimes not so much. Luckily these Meatballs with Creamy Mushroom Gravy came together quite simply party due to some handy new kitchen gadgets.
Dreamfarm has some innovative kitchen tools that are incredibly useful. I tend to love kitchen gadgets but only the ones that really serve a purpose and make my life in the kitchen easier.
The Supoon Supoon is a spoon that scoops, measures, scrapes a bowl clean and sits up off your counter top. It has teaspoon & tablespoon measurements. So dad gum handy!
Chobs are non-slip chopping board feet that raise your chopping board, so you can flip it and use both sides. This is one of those things I had never even thought about, but I know I will be using them everyday. I have one favorite cutting board and I constantly wash it to use it again. This is just so brilliant.
Smood : Effortlessly creates smooth mash in seconds trapping food and forcing it through the thin gaps between the collapsing stainless steel spring coils and has a Silicone scraper that makes it easy to clean the pot or bowl. I hate making mashed potatoes because it’s such a mess, well until now! I’ve never had a potato masher that worked as quick and easy as this one. Plus cleanup was a snap!
Clongs are tongs that open or close with the push of a click-button and sit up off the counter top. I was skeptical of the silicone tips but they gripped the meatballs easily and are perfect for non-stick surfaces.
All of the Dreamfarm products would be great for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.
