Cooking, cooking, cooking! If I had an endless supply of ingredients to cook, I would do it 24/7. Like I’ve said, I just love cooking in my kitchen so much. I love creating something beautiful and delicious out of the natural beauty nature has given us to craft something of our own with. Most of the crafting and creating comes during the prep. That’s were things are cut, sliced, blended, zested, mixed, and poured. That’s where the fun is. Not the time you’re standing around for something to bake in the oven or standing over the stove making sure you’re pancakes don’t burn. The prep you do is the time to get inspired by your ingredients, get crazy, messy, and have fun. Kitchen prep can be simple with just cutting and mixing, but it can also require some more tools than just a knife. Here are 15 of my top kitchen prep tools and why I find them so!
Hamilton Beach Stack & Snap 10 Cup Food Processor – This is the greatest appliance I have. I think. I am in love with my food processor! I have about 4 or 5 blenders and I have never been happy with any. I’ve tried them all and they just don’t do the job. When I finally got an actual food processor, my life changed forever! Talk about blending, chopping, power! You can even grate things with this! Nut butter has never been easier to make, veggie burgers are a cinch, and hummus comes out so creamy! I don’t make smoothies, so a blender is a waste for me. You can do everything and more with a good food processor and I really recommend this one!Read More
