In the middle of cooking the family meal and wondering about the other mums out there and if they are as crazy about certain things in their kitchens. There are certain appliances in my kitchen that I couldn't live without and if they broke I would cry. In my pantry I have certain items that I never run out of they without them I would be lost. So am I the only one?
There are 2 appliances I am crazy about my food processor It just does everything I need it too and more. Can't figure out what I did before without one and a twist and chop no onions don't make my hands smell for days.
Pantry: Mrs Ball Chutney every South African house has at least one bottle of the stuff bases for every sauce and goes great with wors rolls( a South African Sausage) cheese sandwiches even hot dogs.(If you have a South African friend ask them about this one item)
Flour: base for sauces and thickener has many uses.
Real butter to make that all important roux with the flour for the smoothest cheese sauce on the planet.
Muffin mix chocolate: I am a useless baker so I cheat and once I have mixed up the batter I add a large bar of Cadbury's Top deck crushed to make a great muffin.
Oxo: great for sauces, stews and soups.
So what do you like to make sure you always have and why.
