For my birthday this year, I asked for a good picture cookbook and a box of utensils and gadgets to help me learn to cook. John went above and beyond what I expected. (I was thinking Dollar Tree for a many of the items---not Bed, Bath and Beyond!) We still need to find a tub to put it all in, but I wanted to have my own tools that I can find whenever I need them.
Here is the entire collection (so far!)
Measuring cups and spoons (the small set includes "pinch" and "dash"!
Peeler, pastry brush, zester, pancake turner, microplane, and melon baller.
Assortment of bamboo spoons and stirrers.
Rubber spatulas, wire whisk, and pastry bags.
Pastry fork, chop and scoops.
Flour sifter, meat thermometer, and candy thermometer.
Rolling pin, parchment paper, 4 cutting sheets.
The cookbook. (Can't figure out how to turn it over!)
Inside the cookbook. This is a reprint of the cookbook John learned to cook with!
