This post is about setting your kitchen up for success.
To be clear I am in no way a master chief, but I do know a thing or two about cooking from years of practice, which has enabled me to put together quick, easy and tasty recipes.
Something I’ve learnt along the way is there are certain tools that you need in your kitchen to make preparing and cooking healthy meals easy.
When I first moved out of home into my own place I had a bread knife that I cut everything with. I used to find the whole process of cutting up vegetables sooooo time consuming. It’s no wonder… I was using the wrong kind of knife!
It wasn’t until several years later that I bought my first proper knife! Which I still have today and it’s still my main go to knife. It makes chopping (when sharpened) so quick and easy…
It’s tools like a good knife that will make your life so much easier in the kitchen.
So to help you set up your kitchen with the right tools for the job see below my recommended list:
Chopping Board (medium sized)
A good knife!
Set of pots and pans (preferably non stick)
Set of kitchen utensils (wooden spoon, tongs serving spoon etc..)
Set of bowls in different sizes with lids (if possible)
Set of containers (lunch size)
Baking trays - a few flat ones in different sizes and one for muffins
Baking dishes – oval shape and round shape
If you’re just starting out and only have a few of these items then just get one at a time. By doing this, over a period of time you’ll eventually have everything you need to have your kitchen set up for success.
So today, go through your kitchen cupboards and take a look at what you already have and write down a list of items to get in due course.
You may find that once you’re aware of a few of the items that you need to get you’ll start to see them around the place such as via a gift, store sale, thrift shop or even at a garage sale.
So now you have everything you need to set your kitchen up for success.
