We love using and having special kitchen appliances, but there are so many. So we decided (though it was hard) on our favorite cooking accessories, and are now showing them with you. These tools each serve many purposes, such as the brushes. They can spread olive oil on bread, or cover biscotti with chocolate! We like the cooking accessories we have chosen because they are functional, fun, and helpful. We love visiting Sur la Table and William Sonoma to look at and buy different items. Walking through the stores gives an inspiration on what to make or things to add to recipes.
