My Kitchen Wish List

I love being in my kitchen. I get going and I go into a zen – total, peaceful, absorption. I don’t know about you, but I have my special tools and appliances that I can’t live without. And I have that wish list of things I so wish I had – and had room for storage! So here I go, sharing with you what I love.

First – The things I can’t live without.

My knife. I have a beautiful, 12 inch chef’s knife with a handmade wooden handle – made by my husband. It feels good in my hand and cuts beautifully!

Sea Salt. It seasons food beautifully both as an ingredient and as a finishing touch.

Pepper mill. Nothing – and I mean nothing – enhances a dish more than the subtle flavors of fresh ground black pepper. Nothing.

Grill pan. I cannot have a kitchen without a grill pan. I’m on my second one from Ikea – I use it a lot!

Liquid Smoke. Speaking of grill pan – you can get that smoky flavor of a grill if you add a little liquid smoke to the oil or liquid you’re cooking with. Almost as good as wood chips!

Cock pot. This appliance is my basic cooking tool during the winter months – and summer months – and – well – I guess every month!

My Wish List.

Air Fryer. I love fried foods. I’m trying to loose weight. The two do not work well together. But I keep seeing and hearing about the air fryer. I hear mixed reviews. Some say they don’t work. The food doesn’t crisp. But others swear by them. So I’m on the fence whether to buy.

Instapot. I want something that cooks that fast. I already have a crock pot, but I want the other features, all tied up into one appliance

Small, single cup coffee maker. I’m not interested in the pod kind, just a little coffee maker that brews 24 oz only. That ten cup pot wastes a lot of coffee. I’m the only coffee drinker in the house.

I’d love to hear your must have and wish list too!

Commence Cooking.

    Good sharp knives are so important when preparing food. I splurged on a good set about 10 years ago and they are still sharp and make cutting vegetables and meat so easy.

    I also love my crockpot and my pressure cooker, but right now I’m really using my cast iron frying pans quite a bit. They get nice and hot and don’t require a lot of oil, and are useful to cook so many things I’ve been collecting Cast Iron Recipes on my Pinterest for inspiration.

      I love cast iron. And it actually released iron to your food too! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your favorites too!
