Sounds very cool! Once I started using a food processor, I wondered how I ever lived without one! They are awesome and save a ton of time!

Right now I'm looking at a new kitchen rack my mom got me for my birthday and all the wonderful goodies on it from spices to wooden utensils to a food processor with 10 different blades. I'm excited to fry everything out but I'm also super nervous because I haven't ever really cooked like I'll be cooking with those utensils before. We'll see how it turns out.

I'd say it certainly helps but as long as you have the basics, you can tweek most recipes to what you have on hand. Others though, like his delicious looking pasta ones, I have to buy a pasta maker before I can make them. Maybe I'll get lucky and get one on my birthday.

As far as ingredients, I've been really surprised with his cookbook that I have because once I started making a few things, I realized that I use a lot of the same ingredients over and over. One thing that I now stock in the fridge all the time that I never used to? Lemons. Lots of lemons.

It's funny but I look around my kitchen and really I can get by with most of my stuff as far as utensils go. But I would never be without a salad spinner!

Ingredients, that is my husbands department, he is always buying new spices. I like a good EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and a nice peanut oil for when I am doing Chinese.

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

How many of you have ever gotten a cookbook like Food Revolution, found a recipe that just jumped off the page at you screaming to be made right away only to find that you don't have either the ingredients or the right utensils?
That's been my dilemma. I went through Jaime's recommended utensil and pantry list and I had only a few of the things.
I'm determined to move past that though and put that whole list on my birthday list.

I think that having the right tools in order to be able to cook at home is a big part of healthy eating. What about you guys?
