ooh, I must add a number 6 (or you can count mine as zero), even though Steph said it... OLIVE OIL. That's a must.
I agree - olive oil needs to be on my list too. Although I've noticed our consumption has decreased on olive oil lately. I guess that's fine since it is spendy!-Crystal

Crystal, I love cheese too . . . I just don't eat it that often. Cheese and Diet Coke are my "bad food" treats. :)Hello Steph! Welcome. I love my broiler, too, especially since I don't own a toaster. :)Leslie, I guess I should get a wok, too! I often have flying food when stir-frying, and I suppose the high sides of the wok keep the goodies in the pan? Too many things on my shopping list! You love your garlic press? I love garlic, but I can't imagine giving up the pleasure of whacking a clove or two with my (formerly meat)-mallet or the side of my knife, throwing away the peel, and running the knife through it a couple of times to mince! I'm silly, and I've watched too many cooking shows.Vicki, is it you or the girls who love the cookie cutters? :)Courtney, I haven't warmed to nutritional yeast yet. Would you call it an acquired taste?AND, I forgot a loved food on my list . . . AVOCADO! Whoops.
I would call nutritional yeast an acquired taste - I don't think I've ever heard of anyone loving it right off the bat.Top 5 kitchen stuffs:-good baking sheets/pans-really good swiss knife-big bamboo cutting board! and a separate small one for garlic/onions-your own personal chopsticks?-my mom's kitchenaid mixerFive fave flavors/ingredients:-GARLIC-fresh baby spinach-really good olive oil-soy sauce/braggs-TOFU
I will also add my wok!
