I firmly believe that culinary success depends upon being well equipped; that isn’t to say that every doodad has its place- frankly, most kitchens tools are completely useless. But the ones that are useful in my kitchen, I consider part of the family.
Whenever I find myself cooking in someone else’s kitchen, I oftentimes have to hide my frustration over their lack of essentials; but it’s unreasonable to hold it against anyone, because if they don’t know, then they simply DO NOT KNOW; which is why I wanted to share my go to kitchen essentials!
Initially I had envisioned one post; but then I realized that most of you don’t have time to read a digital novel, which is why I’m going to divvy up the post for easier reading; why? Because I care!
I love smoothies; and anything to do with blending. I blend at least once a day; and on a particularly busy day, my blender can see the light of day up to five times. And although I enjoy juicing, I find blending is superior because of one key ingredient- fiber. When we juice we remove this essential nutrient; and while juicing has a laundry list of health benefits, it will not replace eating whole fruits and vegetables. Smoothies on the other hand are nutritionally equivalent to eating the whole fruit. However, when it comes to blending, equipment wise, you often get what you pay for.
I’d like to tell you a story.
