We do A LOT of cooking from scratch here. Like any job, the right tools make it all the more enjoyable! Here are some of the ones we use the most frequently.
For homemade salad dressings, smoothies, and protein powder shakes we use ball jars and blender balls.

We store a ton of food here. We meal prep, freezer cook, and make lunches ahead of time. Here are a few of our favorite storage items when we can't use mason jars. We love the different sizes of the pyrex storage set for full meals, leftovers, and individual meal prep ingredients. And this Lily Bloom lunch bag can hold two lunches with ease.
For basic vegetable prep thee are regulars. From coring, to juicing, to slicing, to mincing and everything in between.
Our favorite cookware! Seriously. For most dishes we use cast iron, including our trusty cast iron wok. For soups we love our enameled cast iron dutch ovens. For popcorn we have a super heavy metal pan. We have a stainless steel pan set for pasta and some sauteeing. For baking and sheet-pan meals, we have 1/4 and 1/4 metal pans. And last, but not least, our programmable slow cooker (ours is similar to one listed, but MUCH older)!
