Kitchen Tidbit

I am by no means a professional chef, I do however enjoy being in a kitchen, cooking an baking yummy things for my family and friends to eat. Along the way I have picked up some very useful items that have helped me out tremendously in the kitchen making things go a little smoother.

Before deciding to stay at home with my children I was a Purchasing Agent for a Restaurant Supply Company and one thing that I would strongly recommend to anyone is to check out their local Restaurant Supply Store for top Quality at a low price. Everything from Professional Cookware, Knives(Z.W.Henkle, Wustoff, Victorinox) appliances(Kitchen aide, Robocoupe) to top quality cutlery and dishware.

My kitchen Tidbit today is the Vollrath Dishers, Used in restaurants for portion control, used in my home the same way we do a lot of baking cookies, muffins, etc. I use a small(violet) disher when making cookies and meatballs. It keeps them all the same size which is key for baking times, you want a consistent size. I use a medium(red) Size disher when making muffins, easily scoops the batter, and all the muffins are the same size.

What kitchen tidbits do you have to share with us?
Stay tuned for more kitchen tidbits.


  1. I don't measure things...I am more of a sprinkle of this or a dash of that...it makes it hard to duplicate or share recipes...but it always tastes good.
