Sorry not talking garden tools. A bit of my cooking history... When I was a toddler, teenager, in other words when I lived at home, my mom cooked. PERIOD. She prided herself on her cooking recipes and I could watch or help do the boring stuff, but when she cooked, her kitchen was her domain. Not that I'm complaining, we always had delicious fattening food, that went to my butt. on the table. I can only recall a few times when I didn't want to eat and my dad would say "Think of all the starving children in the world who would love to have what is on your plate." At which I would pick up my dish and offer it, "Here they can have it." Needless to say that never went over well.
However, I grew up. And I think I even dared say that once to my kids and I cringed and took it back quickly.
When I got married, I so didn't know how to cook. I'd ask mom for a recipe and she'd say stuff like, you just put a dash of this, or a pinch of that. Disaster. I'm not talking food. LOL. But my kids were perfect--don't tell them I said that.
Then I remarried and we both worked. All our kids lived with us, can you say 6 kids? 3 boys, 3 girls we were the Brady bunch with out Alice. Not to mention dinner time was different times for all. We ate a lot of pizza. After they grew up and moved on... Finally... I never wanted to see a pizza again. I'm just starting to enjoy it--sometimes.
Now it's just my husband and I. I am turning into my mother. I love to cook, though most the time I don't know what I'm doing. I am really enjoying trying new things. Except when they're inedible. I'm even turning the kitchen into my domain. My husband will wander in to pick at the food or offer help and it's all I can do not to point and say in a stern manner "Get thee gone from my kitchen, heathen." But I refrain and bite my lip, sometimes very hard.
Now that I'm really starting to cook seriously, I find I know nothing of the correct tools I need. Well other than the easy things like measuring tools.
So please help. What is your favorite kitchen tool? And what and how do you use it? I will keep you posted on my cooking journey's. Please share yours.
Remember I'd love to interview any of you, if you want to join me in the garden email and let me know.
