Gift Ideas For The Chef!! #LoveCooking #Giveaway

How many of you love cooking? I love cooking, baking...anything in the kitchen working with food. Many times the items that head my wish-list for the holidays are tools and accessories for the kitchen. For any of you who are like me, or who have a relative or friend like me, here are a few incredible gift ideas for the upcoming holidays!

Love Cooking allowed me to choose a few items for review, and today we'll take a look at 3 of them. The Mrs. Fields Fill n' Flip Round Locking Layer Pan, The Cool Bake, and the Scoop N Cut Cookie Tool. I just love having an excuse to bake, and trying out new products is the best "excuse"!

The Fill N Flip is honestly my favorite. (Although it's very closely followed by the Cool Bake). I love creating cakes of all flavors and kinds, but one of my most-requested cakes is a strawberry poke cake, also known as a Jello cake. This is one of the tastiest desserts ever, but I like to add strawberries on top of the cake, with a layer of whipped topping over the berries. This gets rather messy, as I'm sure you can imagine. Inevitably the white topping is marred by specks and streaks of red, where the berry juice smeared. I now have the perfect solution to that problem, thanks to this ingenious pan! The Fill N Flip set is actually 2 pans; a layer cake set, if you will. Bake the cakes, cool, and remove from the pans. The bottom layer has a shallow "bowl" area, where you can put your filling. Berries, icing, pudding, even ice cream-whatever you'd like in the center of your cake! As you settle the top layer on, you'll notice that it has a slightly wider rim on the underside, which literally locks into place around the rim of the bottom layer! This keeps all your fillings inside, with no mess! I absolutely LOVE this pan!








My next "experiment" involved chocolate chip cookies, which of course allowed me to use both the Cool Bake and the Scoop N Cut. The Scoop N Cut is a simple yet very helpful tool. With a scoop on each end, you can choose from teaspoon or tablespoon measurements, depending on what size cookie you're making. The best part is that the scoops are made of silicone, so you can easily pop the dough out onto your cookie sheet. 





And speaking of cookie sheets, the Cool Bake is my new go-to! Using this removes an entire step from your baking process-that of moving cookies to a cooling rack. The Cool Bake has a built-in, removable cooling rack! Check out the pictures below; it's easier than trying to describe it to you! Just let me say that it works great, and has turned out amazing cookies (and biscuits) every time I've used it-which has been quite a few times in the past couple weeks!




So, have any bakers, cooks, or young aspiring chefs on your gift list this year? Check out Love Cooking for some incredible gift ideas!!

Love Cooking is giving one of our readers their choice of prize from the items I reviewed!! Choose from the Fill N Flip Cake Pan Set, Cool Bake Pan, or Scoop N Cut!
