As a wannabe foodie myself, I always love a good kitchen-friendly gift: a fun new gadget, pretty baking ware and serving dishes, the ultimate in kitchen tech (ahem … the KitchenAid 5-Quart Stand Mixer). The more I cook, the more I’ve learned to embrace the practical things. I recently discovered a few things: (1) a hand-mixer is incredibly helpful for quick mixes, (2) a good quality, sharp knife makes life so much easier, (3) having great spices on hand makes everything taste better, and (4) silicone bakeware is awesome. Do you have any in-the-kitchen favorites?
