The Only Kitchen Cheat You’ll Ever Need: FREE Printables

Written by Lindsay Ropella

Confession: I’ve fallen into a blogger trap.

I’ve become completely obsessed with prints (or printables) lately. I know it’s totally cliche, but I’m in love with them! If you aren’t familiar with what prints are, they are basically little 8×10 images that are typically cute phrases or sayings, but can also just be images or designs.

The great thing about prints is they are so cheap (or often times free) that you can replace them as soon as you get sick of them or want something new. I know a lot of my fellow bloggers change out many of their prints based on the season or an approaching holiday. I think prints are such a fun way to change up your home decor without having to spend big bucks (and ya’ll know I’m all over cheap decor).

Best of all there are so many different ways you can display these little guys. You can matte them and put them in a frame on the wall, you can swap them out of a frame on your mantle or table depending on the season, you can even take a bunch of prints and make them into a little collage!

Curious how to find some prints to grace your own abode? There are lots of free ones you can just print off by searching for the specific type of print you want or room you want them for, or just search for printables on Pinterest. Otherwise, if you have a really specific one in mind you’d like, or if you want a super high quality print, you can check out all the different prints for purchase on Etsy. Two of my favorite shops for prints are The Motivated Type and My Littlest Print Shop.

If you are looking for a few free prints just to introduce you to the world of printables, check out my friend Melissa’s blog Loving Here! She just posted an adorable print for your kitchen that you can download and print for FREE right now!


I decided to jump on the bandwagon and create one of my own to throw into the ring. I wanted something that was a little bit unique but also helpful to grace my kitchen, and hopefully give me the inspiration to step out of my cooking box a little more. I realized I was always having to look up a few of the same cooking cheats over and over again so I decided to create them into a printable.

Here is the one I created:

kitchen - pink

Ultimate Kitchen Cheat Sheet PDF in Pink

kitchen - blue

Ultimate Kitchen Cheat Sheet PDF in Blue

kitchen - gray

Ultimate Kitchen Cheat Sheet PDF in Gray

Yes, I did do it in three different colors to give anyone who wants to download it some options. Yes, I spent way too much time on this little project. But I’m really excited to get one of these matted and put in a white frame and hung on our kitchen wall! I still have to decide on which color, but once I have it up I will definitely post pictures on my Instagram account.

If you are interested in one of these little guys for yourself, just click the PDF link under whichever color you prefer. Unsure? I think Melissa’s kitchen print goes perfectly with my gray Kitchen Cheat Sheet, so why not print out both and put them together in a little wall display?!

Here is a preview of hers…get it here:


Just a note:  if this isn’t something you want on your wall but would still find helpful, you can always print it out and stick it on the fridge or tape it on the inside of a cabinet near the stove.

What prints do you have hanging out around your house these days? Let me know in the comments or tag me in a picture of on on Instagram!

    I love this! Really great idea and so very helpful. Totally worth the time you put into this little project of yours. I’m almost always Google searching substitutes or measurement conversions when I’m in the kitchen cooking. Printing one of these for myself right now!

    • Lindsay Ropella

      Thanks! You will have to let me know if you feel it’s helpful once you start using it! :)

  • Maya

    These are so fabulous! I’m totally going to download these :) xx

    • Lindsay Ropella

    NICE (but your chart doesn’t indicate the QUANTITY OF RICE to use, nor the EGG SIZE [small; med.; large; jumbo…makes a difference])!

    • Lindsay Ropella

      SO true, Barry! Thanks so much for your feedback! I will have to make an updated version of this in the next few weeks when I have some time. But for a really quick response, the egg size is LARGE, and the rice quantities are all based off 1 cup of each. Apologies – that I definitely should have included..I guess I just got too caught up in the fun of the design! :) Thanks for stopping by.
