Here is where we will have our “class”. For now, I’m going to post essential tools for basic cooking as requested. We can get into more tools, later, the list now will be the very basics to get by.
I will also post a list of items needed for the first recipe, Pancakes and sausage. I’m not posting the recipe and directions yet to give everyone time to gather what they need. This will be conducted like a real class you’re going to!
I hope you enjoy and learn something new!
Please do not post recipes or random tips as this will be run like a class.
Here’s a list of BASIC tools you’ll need in a kitchen to cook basic meals. If you already have these, great! If not, you can fond low cost equipment at Walmart and Dollar Tree. I like Dollar Tree for all the utensils as they usually have Betty Crocker brand. Walmart is better for pots and pans.
For pots and pans, I like T-fal. It’s cost effective and durable. It also comes in boxed sets that are often referred to as a kitchen in a box. As you progress, you can later but better pots and pans, but T-fal is a great start and works for almost any home cook level of experience.
You don’t have to have these things to read and ask questions, only when you want to cook. Thos is for the Pancakes and Sausages.
All purpose flour
Baking POWDER (not baking soda)
Butter-( real butter, please, unless you have a dietary restriction)
Fresh or frozen sausage links
Non-stick spray for best results
Vanilla- imitation is fine
Small carton heavy whipping cream
You will also need:
10 inch frying pan/skillet
OR use a griddle if you have one
Measuring cups, dry type and liquid type.( Dry type comes as a nesting set, liquid type is usually clear with a spout and measurements on the outside)
Whisk (if making whipped cream)
