There has been many times when I was starting out in the kitchen where I would get frustrated trying to cook a dish because I either didn’t have a tool or what I had wasn’t good quality. Trying to figure out what to buy in the kitchen can be a huge hurdle to jump when getting out, and can also turn dishes into a complete disaster!

I have put together a list of items that I’ve either used, or have put a good amount of research into, meaning I will also be purchasing myself down the road.
