One Stop Shopping

I was able to get almost all of the ingredients (and kitchen tools) I needed to prepare this meal at Cost Plus World Market – along with bold and beautiful decor for serving. Having the right tools for prepping saves tons of time. Cost Plus World Market has all of the kitchen essentials you’ll need from JA Henckels International knives and Epicurean Cutting Boards for effortless prep, to GreenPan cookware for healthier cooking.

The surface of the GreenPan cookware is nonstick and everything literally just slides right out (meaning cleanup is a breeze). I also love that I can safely use metal utensils and that it’s dishwasher safe. Another favorite Cost Plus World Market kitchen prep item is the rectangular measuring spoons set.  The rectangular shape allows them them to fit into spice jars for easy, mess-free measuring!
