I decided to take my first step into monetizing Three Hungry Bellies. I looked into a couple of affiliate programs that I would like to work with and settle to start out with amazons affiliate program. It felt familiar to me somehow. Amazon is that place that everyone gets everything from and that includes me. I get almost all of my food tools/supplies from amazon because it's fast, easy, and reliable. So, why not share some of the things I bought from amazon and use my kitchen.
The first thing that I linked was this scale:
This was the first scale I had ever bought for my kitchen. Previous to this scale I was using my dads old scale that was super tiny. He worked in a lab so he always had a bunch of scales just lying around. Don't ask me what he used it for because honestly no clue. After using it for a few years, I decided that it was getting too small for me and that I should get a new kitchen scale.
I decided on this one and I've had it ever since. It does a great job and it wasn't too expensive. You can switch from oz to grams to pounds with a press of a button so reading recipes with weird conversion isn't difficult. Now you don't have to ask alexa to convert cups to oz anymore!
The next thing that I linked were these baking sheets:
I got them a couple months back and love them. They can go into a hot oven without warping or bending and they don't get burn marks. I find that the combination of these sheet pans with a silicone mat gives my baked goods/food a very nice caramelized color.
Next, I linked this cookie scoop:
When I first got this cookie scoop it came in a really nice box and I thought that I had gotten the balenciaga of all cookie scoops. And honestly I still do. Its so nice and I love being able to make everything with even amounts. All my cupcakes and cookies come out perfectly. One doesn't have a bigger muffin top than the other and no cookie is left burnt.
And finally the last thing I linked was this thermometer.
Okay guys, if there is anything that you should get its a thermometer that for the kitchen. I would always fry doughnuts and they would always come out burnt cause I REFUSED to buy a thermometer. I don't even know why I just didn't want to buy one. I can be really stubborn sometimes as you can already tell. Last year I came across a beautiful doughnut recipe that i really wanted to try and she stressed that getting a thermometer is crucially so I caved and bought this thermometer. Guys, it a game changer. My doughnuts came out beautifully and since then I have made many more doughnuts and have made marshmallows too! All of which wouldn't be possible without a thermometer. Don't be stubborn like me and waste years of not having fresh doughnuts.
The four products that I have linked to my website I have used and still use to this day. Some things I use for all my recipes and others I use just when needed but these four things are on the top 10 list of things I think every baker/cook should have in their arsenal. I do receive a small percentage of money when you use my links so if you ever do I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I want you know the you are making my dreams a reality. So thank you. :)
