After careful consideration, I have selected the tools that I find most useful in my kitchen. These are my favourite things that I reach for most often. I hope you find my recommendations helpful in setting up or updating your kitchen. But first, if you might need to eat gluten free and haven't read my Start Here page, you might find it helpful, too.

Take the guesswork out of cooking. The Thermapen is so quick and accurate that you can test your food in various places until you find the area with the lowest temperature. That's the part that needs to reach the desired temperature.
NOTE TO CANADIANS: I select Amazon products from the American Amazon.com website. (Although I am Canadian, most of my readers are in the US.) When you click on a product link, you will be taken to the Canadian Amazon.ca site. Where possible, it should link to the same product that I have chosen. However, the product is often ridiculously expensive in Canada. I would recommend that you look around when you get to Amazon.ca and try to find a better deal on a similar product.

Traditional Meals for the Frugal Family is based on the wisdom of traditional food diets. These recipes are focused on unprocessed ingredients, pastured animal products, and frugal foods that people have thrived on for generations. The resulting meals are gluten free, almost entirely dairy free, picky eater certified and, most importantly, deeply nourishing.
