Timeless Kitchen Tools for a Servantless Cook

My journey of healthy cooking (well, cooking in general) started only two years ago. When I first began cooking, I had access to a beautiful kitchen and high end kitchen tools. Then, my husband and I bought our first home and suddenly, I HAD NOTHING. Not even pots and pans.

If you are just beginning your journey of building a beautiful collection of kitchen tools, this is my list of "must have" quality items for you. I learned from my wise mother-in-law to buy high quality when possible because if you invest in a few pieces a year, you will most likely never have to replace them! Why buy a crappy knife 5 times over because it breaks when you could invest into a $100 knife that will never let you down?

 
 1. Stainless Steel Cookware Set  In my opinion, Calphalon is the best brand to buy in this department. However, that wasn't in our budget after buying our dream home so I decided on this  middle-ground set.  There are a lot of quality sets out there, an all-stainless look is classic + won't need to be "updated" when styles change. With stainless steel, you won't worry about the chemicals that come with using non-stick + the set will stand the test of time!

 3. Le Creuset Grill Pan  I love everything LeCreuset! On my budget, I have to wise on what pieces I purchase or ask for as a gift... I need to get as much use as possible from each piece. Le Creuset's grill pan can used for almost anything: grilling, roasting. baking. It can be used stovetop, in the oven, or obviously on the grill. At under $100, you will use them multiple times a week and it has a Lifetime Guarantee.
