amadi: An appetizing array of various fruits and vegetables. (Food)

A comment [personal profile] axelrod made in an earlier post struck a note with me: rice cookers are awesome because you put ingredients in, can go back to bed and wake up to hot food waiting for you.

For the same reason, I love my slow cooker. I appreciate something that lets me make even complex meals with no tending, just prep and go.

I've also been recently reminded that a good knife makes prep work so much easier. (I now really grok why chefs will use anyone's pans, pots and appliances but carry their own knives with them.) With arthritic hands, I am far more capable of doing cutting/chopping prep work with a good knife that fits my hand and has a good sharp edge on it than I was with a drawer full of mediocre knives.

Our focus thus far has largely been on recipes, but I'm curious what tools, appliances and "hardware" are important parts of your kitchen arsenal?

Let's kick things up a notch!

Something that my wife/kitchen buddy [personal profile] rooibos and I would love to do and share with the community is make really complicated recipes into low-spoon friendly things. We both love things involving the kitchen, and we have complimentary annoyances so what I can't do, she can and vice versa.

But what would be the point in breaking down a lovely, complex Julia Child recipe only to find that no one else cares? Right. To combat that, it's poll time!

Keeping in mind that we are both vegetarians and will work these recipes out as our schedules allow, we'd like some feedback about interest in various options.

If you have a favorite recipe or a recipe tucked away in a cookbook that has always struck your fancy, but you haven't worked out how to break down the work, please do comment so we can pursue those things, too! She and I are up for all sorts of wild adventure in the kitchen.

Ticky boxes ahoy! )
