I finally bought a new muffin tin. I think...no, I know I am in love. I have made more muffins in the last 2 weeks, than in the last 2 months. It is the answer to all my Muffin Dreams...
It amazes me how much easier a good kitchen tool/gadget can make kitchen work. We all have our favourites--things we cannot do without in the kitchen. Here is a short list (in no particular order) of my fave's for kitchen work:
1. Good quality, sharp knives--balance is everything!
2. High Grade (18/10) stainless steel, heavy bottom pots and frying pans
3. Non stick cookie sheets (not jelly pans...cookie sheets have no sides, jelly pans do)
4. Non Stick muffin tray (...my new love!)
5. Pampered chef large batter bowl/measuring cup
6. stainless steel whisk
7. Tupperware Quick Chef (food chopper)
8. Silicone spatula
9. wooden spoon
Here is a new muffin recipe..yummy!
