A lot of my non-writer friends ask me where do you get your ideas?
My easy answer—from my life. Things happen and I’m inspired to do research. Then sometime later the experience shows up in my stories.
Right now, a couple of close relatives are getting married while a few more are moving into apartments, and I’d like to help. Most of my nieces, nephews and cousins will need to set up a first kitchen, so here’s my question—what will they need to begin cooking in their new place?
Here’s my list of kitchen essentials, so far.
1. Baking Dish
2. Sauté Pan with a lid
3. Can Opener
4. Vegetable Peeler
6. Cutting Board
7. Measuring Cups and Spoons
8. Mixing Bowls
9. Storage Containers
11. Cookie Sheets and cake pans
12. Cheese Grater
15. Salt and Pepper Mills
Can you think of any other must-haves for a startup kitchen? Please let me know in the comments. Thanks.
