10 Must-Have Kitchen Tools You Need for Holiday Cooking
Although I cook every day in my house, during the holidays cooking is taken up a notch. I become a crazy lady cooking all sorts of desserts and foods that I wouldn’t cook any other time of the year. I absolutely love cooking because it puts my mind in another place. While I’m cooking, I’m not thinking about work or an email that I need to spend. I am completely focused on food. Even though cooking is my happy place, it can still be stressful. (Have you ever finished a dish and realized that you completely forgot to add a certain ingredient? or how about that one time when you added a whole cup of flour instead of 1/4 cup of flour to your cookie batter?)
In preparation of all of the holiday cooking that I will be doing, I’ve made a list of 10 must-have kitchen tools that you need for this holiday season.
