I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, a lot of time. We cook almost every meal, every day. That’s 21 meals a week and a lot of hours spent cooking together and alone. It’s high time I bring in some humor. Something to make us us laugh and feel like those hours are mere minutes. I’m kind of a big kid at heart and a big fan of making light of our serious cooking adventures. Not to mention I love any gadget that’s going to get the kids excited about helping and trying to cook something new. Check out all the ways I’m bringing silly back.

Lickety Pops Popsicle Molds 2 of 16
This is hilariously gross which translates to kids loving it. You'll be the envy of the 'hood. Especially if you make these rainbow fruit pops in the tongue molds.

Just A Slice Cake Pan 3 of 16
Oh man, this would be a huge problem solver for parents of two or more kids. Can you hear the demands and fighting over who has the biggest piece? I can and it's deafening. No more who has the bigger piece when every piece is exactly the same! It will also help you control the portion since eating this skillet corn cake with blackberries and nectarines makes you want a huge slice.

The Freeloader Spork 11 of 16
My husband is the worst food thief of all time! In fact, the very first time we met (sitting next to each other at a wedding) he ate off my plate! The nerve. But he had me hooked. I think I will have to get this for our anniversary and serve his favorite grilled veggie and chicken pasta.

Muffin Top Cake Mold 12 of 16
This is what started my trip down silly kitchen gadget lane. A friend sent me a pic of these muffin molds and I cracked up. I cannot wait to make whole wheat mango peach muffins in these.

Beer Savors 13 of 16
The amount of beer that gets wasted in the house is shameful. I'm sure you are wondering how that is possible. Well, my husband is into all these fancy IPA's that come in huge bottles. Sounds dreamy, but after a steak dinner a beer this big with over 400 calories is a bit too much. He sticks in back in the fridge and it's flat the following day. No more beer wasting with these cool caps!
