Those are great ideas, I love my crock pot and sandwich press! I think the only other thing that I use all the time is my mixer.

Food processor. The kids can help by adding things in, but won’t get cut or hurt. Therefore actually making it possible to be used by the entire family.

OH a crock pot is fantastic!

I’d send a happy little care package to the soldier, too. Cookies are always appreciated this time of year!!! Especially if you include extra to share with the men who don’t have family

crock pot! in my house at least, things like a sandwich press are really fun and get a lot of use for a few weeks, then get lost in the pantry forever. i think it’s easier just to use a skillet.

If they eat meat and things that cook well in a crock pot, that’s a great idea, but I’d include a crock pot cook book to spur them on. 

Something else might be a gift certificate to one of those supper clubs where you go to the place to make a months worth of meals with a bunch of other people (I don’t know the names of the companies…). 

And I’d say no to shipping cookies to Afghanistan.  They don’t really ship well – things that are good to ship are small packages of jerky (if the unit goes on patrols), cheap DVDs, and if they are in a unit that interacts with Afghans, things like small toys and sugar-free candies for the kids (I only say that b/c they tend to  have bad teeth!).  Everyone I know who has been or is currently in Afghanistan (just like Iraq, but I don’t know anyone there) says they have enough food and things like that.

You could totally get some really cute aprons or oven mitts especially for the kiddos!  They would love it!

As for the cooking, I absolutely love our crock pot (like everyone else has said!) and our Pyrex bake and store gear.  You can make something, take it out of the oven, serve, and then just pop the fitted cover on it!  They travel well too!
