Hello Dearest Readers,
For your reading pleasure, I have compiled a very short list, from least to most critical, of the top 5 kitchen items most valuable to me and my cooking.
Sending you Zomppa Love!!! XXXXXXOOOOOO
5. Kitchen Aid
This beautiful hunk of metal is almost 6 years old, but still efficiently kneads bread dough like it did in 2004. My baking significantly improved when she showed up.
4. Santuko Knife
Oh, the Santuko Knife. The dedicated slave of my kitchen. My go-to knife for all chopping, mincing, and dicing needs. So sharp, light and easy to grasp.
3. Le Creuset Pot
Gorgeous little cast iron dutch oven, helpful for frying, making soups, stews, braising, and weighing down other food items (good for making Panini if you don’t have a sandwich press).
2. Espresso Machine
While I have tried my best to reduce my caffeine intake, this shiny red wonder of a machine is my kitchen’s pride and joy. Makes perfect single or double shots of espresso and steams milk to a frothy perfection.
1. Taste Tasters
My family. If it wasn’t for them, items 2-5 would be useless, my cooking would be tastless and my life would be null and void.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

That is our Patty….
