My mom is a great cook, she can whip up anything in the kitchen from our favorite viand to baked goods. She says her secret is simple, just make sure that you have the right ingredients and the right kitchen tools, and you’ll be all set. I wish I could cook like her. I have a confession, I can make a mean breakfast, but the rest of the other meals are a problem for me.
I know my friend @adamsconsulting is a great cook. She was so sweet because she sent us a copy of her cookbook. When my mom saw it, she asked for it right away. I guess having a lot of recipes helps a lot since it allows a person to have variety at every meal time. We loved every recipe in there!
Even if I cannot cook, I still love browsing around the cookware or kitchenware section in the department stores. I love the colorful kitchen gadgets. I think more and more designers are creating unique designs to cater to the themes and tastes of modern chefs. Well, geek chefs, do not fret, there are a lot of fun kitchen tools available now to adorn your kitchen too. There is everything from aprons to salt and pepper shakers. You can almost find anything that your geek’s heart desires. I have picked seven to feature here. You can check out other cool kitchen stuff at Think Geek. I think they are all quite cool.
