Today was rough. I was in the middle of baking these and my food scale officially died. It’s been having battery issues for a while but today was officially it’s final day as a member of the MouthwateringMotivation baking team sadly.

So I, very unwillingly went out to Walmart and picked up this new Starfrit scale, which to be honest is very cool. Loving it thus far!

Over the years I’ve had many different food scales but still to this day my absolute favourite, best friend forever, will always love food scale is the Greater Goods Nourish Digital Kitchen Scale”.


This is my baby ( I still have it, just at my apartment.. I do most of my baking at my parent’s place as I enjoy stealing their extra kitchen space).

This baby I’ve had for YEARS. It has yet to die on me and runs on one set of batteries for a full year or longer..PLUS you get detailed nutritional facts on a ton of different foods.

But mainly I just love it for it’s reliability. I’ve never had it shut off on me mid baking EVEN with low batteries, it’s been covered in all kinds of ingredients, dropped, drenched in water…and here it still stands. Working like new. Anyways, long-story short. Get this food scale. It looks pretty and it does the job like no other.

Now onto the cookies…

That is all.

Make them. NOW. Do it. You won’t regret it. keto caramel chocolate shortbread cookies
