Holiday Baking Essentials

The first holiday post.... eeek!!! It sort of feels too soon although we ARE only two weeks away from Thanksgiving. So insane. Easily one of my favorite parts of the holidays is eating - eating alllll the things. I love turkey and ham and mashed potatoes and stuffing and green bean casserole, but I really love my desserts. I'm literally counting down the days until I get to dig into my dad's chocolate pie and for my annual all day cookie baking extravaganza. Mmm. 

So in the spirit of dessert, I thought I'd round up a few of my must have baking essentials today. The only super expensive item is the infamous KitchenAid Stand Mixer which yes, is 100% worth the money. I bought a marble pastry board this spring so it'll be my first holiday season using it and I can't wait to see if it really does make a difference when rolling out dough. One thing I still need to pick up? An adorable apron. Anthropologie, here I come!  What are your favorite baking essentials?

  5. My Kitchen Aid mixer is hands down my favorite appliance in the kitchen, such a lifesaver especially around the holidays. And your dad's chocolate pie sounds delish :-D

  14. I've so wanted a marble pastry board forever! I really need to use my kitchen aid mixer more than I do - I just hate having clutter on our counters so I keep in in the garage in a box and am always too lazy to get it out!

  20. I was in Anthropologie over the weekend and my mom and I were loving all of their aprons! My mom wanted to get one but was laughing that she would feel too guilty getting the dirty, which is what they are meant for, haha! This is weird, but the Kitchen Aid mixer is one of those items that I am super excited to buy in the future, once I have my own kitchen!

  24. I love my KitchenAid - best investment ever. And, I am not going to lie, I have never heard of a marble pastry board, but am adding it to my Christmas list right NOW! Sounds amazing! I make a bunch of cookies that are delicate and buttery, and it would be so nice to have something like this to make it a bit easier:)

  25. Oh I love all of this! We have a day of baking cookies too with my mom and sister. So much fun! I say the only thing you're missing is a silpat silicone baking sheet. I want to check out that marble too - because duh photos. ;)

  31. I've been wanting a pastry board and that one is beautiful! Can't believe it's under $40. I agree that the Kitchen Aid mixer is a kitchen must have. I love all the holiday food - pies, mashed potatoes, delicious sides and not having to cook it all myself. Great list of must haves! Good luck finding a cute apron! Baking is more fun when you look cute :)
