Simplicity in the kitchen is not about having a gadget for every job, but a few gadgets that do a lot!  One of my favorite tools in my kitchen is the ice cream scoop.

Of course it's perfect for dishing out sundaes, but I also use it for scooping out cookie dough.  No messy hands, just scoop and drop on the cookie sheet. 

With a big family there seems to be a birthday party every month, and an ice cream scoop is perfect for filling the muffin tin.  It keeps batter from dripping all over the pan and each one is measured perfectly. 

Scoops come in various sizes, but I just have the one.  No reason to clutter up the kitchen drawer when you can just fill it by 1/2 or 1/4 to get the amount needed. 


  1. i use one for cookies as well as making meatballs in the crock pot.

  2. I broke mine! I was so mad...but when I replace it I will definetly be using it for meatballs.

  3. I heard a great idea on Pinterest! Use it to scoop ice cream into muffin wrappers in a muffin pan, and then keep the pan in the freezer. Then you can do all the work before the party, and just bring it out when it's time, and no one waits for ice cream with cake. Plus, it's a much more manageable size. :) Genius!
