Kitchen Must-Haves

Kitchen Must-Haves

- Tracey Stewart

After Hurricane Sandy, a friend of ours was forced to stay with us for a while. When she was able to return to her home, she sent us a note thanking us for changing her life. Sure, we were kind and welcoming... but changing her life? Wow! Really?

Apparently for the last 5 years, she had been opening her cat's food twice a day with an old dilapidated can opener. In the hectic rush of her life, she'd overlooked that she was suffering needlessly. When she opened Tiny's food for the first time at our house, she heard angels sing.

My own kitchen has recently had a revamp thanks to Aida's guidance. I like to think the reason I've been such a terrible cook is because I haven't had the right tools. But, since I have purchased all of Aida's essential tools, even if my recipes don't taste better, I feel better making them.
