Kitchen Finds

I am seriously lacking in inspiration today, so I thought I'd take a little stroll through my Amazon cart to see what goodies are waiting for me to pull the trigger.  Not surprisingly, most of them are kitchen-related.  At the top of my list:

Despite my love of cheesecake and all of the cooking and baking that I do, I do not own a springform pan. This must be remedied.

Because making smoothies in a food processor is surprisingly difficult. 

Both of my wood cutting boards are warped and showing their age.  Proteak makes the Rolls-Royce of cutting boards.   

All of the above earned Highly Recommended status from Cook's Illustrated and, to me, that means the kitchen gods want me to buy them. 

Martha's American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation's Most Treasured Dishes, from Coast to Coast I just adore Martha and I think this cookbook would be super handy to have for summer celebrations {Memorial Day, 4th of July, cook-outs, etc}.  This would make a fantastic hostess gift if you're a guest at a casual summer soiree.

What do you think?  Do you own any of these items?  Would you recommend different ones?  What's at the top of your Amazon wishlist?

Careful of the Kitchenaid Blenders. The motor attachment at the base of the vessel is usually plastic, and the small teeth break off over time. Vitamix is the way to go, if you have the $$.

Oh all of these are a must. I love my Spring-form Pan, a good blender, and a great cutting board. PS Don't feel badly I have had to upgrade/replace all of these items!!
