I started thinking about all of the fabulous kitchen appliances that I wish I could have and I started a mini “lust list.” Can you blame me? We all would cook more at home if it was easier, right? If we all had a fantastic food processor, I could almost guarantee that no one would ever buy pre-made pesto ever again… I have a small food processor — I got it while I was in college and I would use it to make all sorts of sauces (especially pesto). Ever since then I have been making my own pesto and typically at the end of the summer I will make a large amount so I can freeze it and use it throughout the winter. The only problem is, my food processor is so small I would have to make 3 batches of pesto to fill up my container.
I also love my toaster oven… maybe a little too much. I use it every day, multiple times a day for all sorts of things. Whether I am making toast for breakfast, baking cookies, or making bruschetta — I always manage to find a way to use my toaster oven. The poor device has been through such a beating over the past 5 years and I wish I could replace it! Out with the old — in with the new … I wish!
So until I have the money (and counter space) for these items, it looks like I’ll have to make do with out them… and I’ll keep dreaming about them too!
Here’s my lust list. What would be on your list?
