Layers of Happiness
Featuring new classic recipes!


Serving Utensils

Because (speaking from experience…) regular utensils make for a very inefficient and inconvenient way of serving up dinner.


I’ve used a measuring cup to serve soup when I didn’t have a ladle. But it definitely makes things a lot easier to actually have a ladle.

Condiment Cups

Because sauce cups aren’t just for restaurants.

Appetizer Plate

I use this for layered dips, appetizers, and serving meatballs.

Snack Tray Bowl

This is the cutest snack serving tray I have ever seen.

Serving Platter

I’m obsessed with these platters for roasted vegetables, meatballs, grilled chicken, burgers, or anything.

Large Platter

Great for serving roast chicken or carved turkey.

Round Serving Platter

This is great all purpose serving plate for entertaining!

Large Salad Bowl

I love these for serving quinoa bowls and salads. Also great for serving grilled/roasted vegetables.

Mini Oval Ramekins

These are great for serving dessert! You can also bake pizzokies in them and top with ice cream. Or individual chicken pot pies!

Steak Knives

These are super chic and great quality.

Glass Bottles

We use these for serving water like the restaurants do!

Countertop Appliances

All the essentials you can keep on your counter top… or store away if keeping things on the counter isn’t your thing!!! 🙂

Pots and Pans

PSA: You don’t need all the pots/pans that come in a pots and pan set. I much prefer selecting the specific pots you will get the most use out of. That way you can get a few nice pots and save cabinet space.
