The things we can't bare to cook without
The Two Girls love to cook and here are a few of
the kitchen tools we can’t bare to cook without.
The Wooden Spatula
There is something primal about cooking with this
spatula. This Girl loves the look and the control I have when cooking with
it. I admit to getting slightly stressed when the Gore Grind Devotee
cooks using a different implement! I use it for practically everything.
Before the chocolate dipper, this Girl used to
struggle with two forks when trying to coat something in chocolate. The
chocolate dipper is the cheapest kitchen implement I have purchased and has so

The most recent addition to my kitchen tools was given

bowl. It’s just what I need when making cakes and icing, or practically
anything else a bit wet and sticky. It’s efficient. Just remember to roll up
The Other Girl uses her food processor almost every
time I cook. Pesto, soup, spice mixes, dips, coulis, you name, you can
basically blend it in a food processor. I’ve had various brands over the years.
Each has something different to add. Right now I have a Magimix Cuisine 4200XL
which has three bowl sizes. I use the smallest and the largest the most. This
weekend I whizzed strawberries into coulis for strawberry orange flower blossom
buttercream icing and shortly I’ll be processing broccoli soup up in the larger
bowl. I really do use it all the time.
tool can you barely cook without?
