Want: BonJour Creme Brulee Pro Culinary Torch
I often find myself in my kitchen thinking, I really would like to light that on fire. No, I'm not kidding! Some things are just awesome with a char on it before you cook it! Then the other day I ran across this http://traceysculinaryadventures.blogspot.com/2012/01/toasted-marshmallow-ice-cream.html
Are you joking? This is heaven, right? So after seeing this, that did it. I took myself on over to Amazon and put this bad boy on my wish list! I'd like to point out that my birthday is in two weeks, husband ;)
Need: KitchenAid Professional 600 series
I do a lot of cakes and bread. This 6 quart, 575 watt motor would certainly be handy during these larger batches.
Have: KitchenAid Artisan Design 5 quart stand mixer
This is the bad boy that gets my everyday needs done. I, of course, use it with all my baking and the glass bowl is great to have since I can put it in the microwave.
Wish I Never Bought: NONSTICK COOKWARE
Sure it's safe...when used properly and safely. How many of you know how to do that? The recommended temperatures on which to use it have actually been lowered and unfortunately don't coincide with how to properly cook our foods. A simple taste test will show you just how much of the chemicals leaks into your food. So now I use titanium cookware. The downside to this is the expense. Titanium is pretty pricey, so I've kept just a few of my "better" nonstick skillets until I can phase them out. Bear with me ;) I can assure you everything else is boxed up though!
What are your thoughts on any of the above products?! Please share!!
