    Cannot live without my “stirrer”. He’s the 4 y.o. that lives 2-doors down. Always helps me cook and says “I’m the stirrer”!! Other than him, my KitchenAid mixer, of course! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you’ve shared!

    My favorite kitchen tool is a spoon I have had for 10 years. It is warped, melted and chewed from being in the blender and left on hot pans but I still love it and haven’t found any other I want to replace it with.
