My favorite things:
- Kitchen-Aid mixer
- Cuisinart mini-processor (my DH picked this up on a whim & I love it. No more tears when chopping onions
- George Foreman grill (it beats firing up the grill out back for just DH & me)
- meat thermometer (success no matter what)
Like Mauvaisroux, I like to start with a clean kitchen & have all my ingredients out & prepped.
