Here are some items that make life easier (and sweeter) in the kitchen when whipping up spring delicacies and garden inspired salads.

Lasagna is a classic dish that can be tweaked to the season, paired with various wines, and given signature twists. However you make yours, you’ll want to serve it with panache, so the Bobby Flay Stoneware Baker Lasagna Pan is just thing you’ll need for your kitchen flair. Its reasonable 8×8 size renders it flexible in terms of a side or main dish option, and it’s a thing of beauty too. Find it at

Spring ushers in salad season with a vengeance so pick up a gorgeous Hammered Salad Bowl for your table — which is also part of the reasonably priced Bobby Flay collection at Kohl’s. A wood base lifts the bowl for an impressive presentation and the hammered glass imparts a unique finish. This will be one of your favorite kitchen items for years to come! Also at

If you cut yourself in the kitchen or experience a burn, reach for some Easy Access Bandages. One-handed application renders them more convenient than other bandages; they have no loose tabs, they are latex-free, organized by size, sterile and endlessly useful. Order some for the kitchen, your purse and your medicine cabinet at or

When it’s time for clean up, consider Mother Earth by using Bambooee paper towels, made from bamboo and therefore more durable than ordinary paper towels (and earth-friendly in terms of recycling). With every roll of towels purchased there’s a tree planted somewhere on the globe, so you can pat yourself on the back for greening the globe with your cleanup efforts. Just one sheet can be washed up to 100 times! Find them at
