Who loves chopping onions and garlic?

Not me!!

I’ve avoided it for so long that I can’t remember the last time I chopped an onion! I either buy the expensive tubs of pre-chopped onion, and half of it goes bad, or I have Ryan chop them for me!! So when I was given the opportunity to try Pop & Cook, I was instantly intrigued!!

Kitchen Prep Tools, Utensils & Appliances

Here is a list of the kitchen prep tools, utensils, and appliances I used to make this recipe.

Prep Tools & Utensils

These are the items I used to prep and make this recipe:

  • For measuring all the ingredients, I used my trusty 1 cup measuring cup and these stackable measuring cups for the dry ingredients.
  • I used these prep bowls for mixing. I love how colorful they are.
  • I also find myself always using these deep white bowls in my food prep. Food prep is not their intended purpose but they are one of my favorites for holding chopped vegetables, eggs, meat, etc.
  • These metal tongs are a necessity when cooking items like bacon on a hot skillet. Also, a good pair of silicone oven mitts are also required when handling hot skillets or pans. I love this pair of oven mitts because they fit my hands so well. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re so pretty. 😉
  • These mini silicone pinch bowls are convenient for holding spices or salt and pepper.
  • Some of the other items I use were a utility wisk, a spatula, a spreader.

I used these beautiful aqua platters to serve these Frittata Poppers. Just left the platter on the table for the family to grab what they wanted. They didn’t last but a few minutes 🙂

I have used the garlic in several meals this week. I used it in my spaghetti and meat sauce and it definitely was great to not have to peel and chop the garlic!
