Today’s must have:

A good knife

http://www.chefscatalog.com/img/products/285x285/28337_285.jpgI love a good kitchen knife. (They don’t much like me – but that’s not the point right now.) I love a sharp, good quality knife. It makes life much easier in the kitchen as I try to cut up…well…anything. From meat to potatoes to carrots to onions and more!

The knife that we have, that we absolutely love, was a gift from my uncle the first Christmas we were married. It’s a 7-inch Santoku knife from J.A. Henckels. The Santoku knife is a great general-purpose knife for any kitchen. The name refers to the three tasks it performs well: slicing, dicing and mincing.
