Sometimes a little invention comes along that makes you wish you had come up with it.

Enter the salad dresser (that is what I’m naming it, not sure what it’s proper name is) – This kitchen gadget came from Crate & Barrel and was a great gift from a great friend (Thanks Anna!) and it is extra-fun to make dressing out of! It has 5 different dressing recipes and you put the miscellaneous ingredients (garlic, herbs, anchovies, etc.) into the bottle and then fill to the lines with olive oil, vinegar, etc. Stir and pour over greens and enjoy a fabulous home-made dressing that couldn’t be easier.
Here are all of the ingredients:

Mixed together

And on some greens

I used “Jackie’s Vinaigrette” recipe which was a clove of garlic, some mustard powder, cayenne powder, brown sugar, white wine vinegar and olive oil. It was lovely. :)

What kitchen gadget could you not live without? I would probably say one of my favorites is my food processor and/or magic bullet and/or Kuerig coffee maker and/or…well, I obviously can’t decide!!

    Probably the plain ol' microwave. Not very inventive I know, but I honestly don't have shakes all that much and the only other kitchen gadget I use is the toaster.

    Looks like fun!

    I can't live without my food processor. It is used multiple times while I'm in the kitchen.
