long time reader, first time poster (lol)
I just found a $40 amazon giftcard leftover from Christmas (thanks, Aunt Mimi!) and want to pick up a new kitchen gadget. I am in a metropolitan area (Houston) and have no difficulty finding any/all edible/unusual gourmet food items...so no need to order on amazon (unless i find a really amazing deal!)
However, I am woefully lacking in the kitchenware department! I just had a baby (he's 3 weeks old) and am starting to cook a lot for my family. :)
Here's what I have (I know its not much but I make do! My late mother was a french pastry chef, and I am just now beginning to find any interest in being in the kitchen...after my sister and I have already sold much of her cookware. Ha!)
Pots and pans - including a 12" cast iron, dutch oven, etc.
Knives (this is mainly my DH's department, he keeps them sharp).
Mini food processor (cheapo brand).
Flour sifter (was my mothers!)
Cutting boards, etc.
and so forth...
Basically, a lot of basics. Not the highest quality though...
Perhaps a cookbook and a thermometer?
Can i get an inexpensive immersion blender that's worth it?
Help me out!
