Time to start a new feature around here we’re going to call Lemon House Loves.  These are products that we either have, and well, love, or things we’ve spotted around the web that look especially groovy. And who knows, maybe we’ll buy them, try ’em out, and do a follow up review post. We thought it would be fun to share some of the things that we have or would incorporate into the day to day life of our lil bungalow. {Click here for why we call it our lemon house}.

First up: Kitchen gadgets! We both love to cook and of course, eat, so we thought we would share some kitchen items we couldn’t live without and some that caught our eye around the web this week. Since growing season is soon upon us, its fun to think of all the fun things to slice, dice, toss, and cook those beautiful veggies we plan on growing.

Oxo angled measuring cups. The benefit of these is that you can see your liquid measure from above, so you don’t have to do the hold it over your head and guesstimate mode. We have these in a couple different sizes (including the mini one pictured here) and could not live without them now.

Check out these awesomely fun lego utensils! Perfect for snacks and camping!

You know we love making homemade calzones, this calzone mold pops out perfect beauties everytime (we usually just go for the haphazard fork the edges route).yum.

Ever have trouble transferring soups and sauces? These cute and colorful Slip on Pot Pour Spouts are perfect for transfering liquids to smaller jars or dishes! I notice they say for pots with thin rims, though – anyone have a product that fits on Le Creuset?

This fresh herb grinder looks pretty fantastic. We don’t tend to keep our knives sharp enough to do justice to fresh herbs, and this seems like a great solution. I’d love to try it out to see if it does a good job cutting or if it smashes and bruises the herbs easily.

I love our magnetic trivet. As the advertising for it says, “when the pot moves, the trivet rides along”. This is great when you bring the pot right to the table, no more scrambling for a hot pad at family meals. Plus, magnets make storing on the side of the oven SO SUPER EASY.

So thats it for our first Lemon House Loves. What are your favorite gadgets that transform life in your kitchen? We’ve received some of the best tools as gifts or on recommendation from friends and we’re always looking to try new fun things.

{We were not compensated in any way for the products featured in this post, we just wanted to share with you all what gets us excited.}
