I suspect that most kitchen dwellers have a drawer full, crock full or cabinet full of assorted knick knacks that streamline their cooking and baking escapades and make the overall process even more enjoyable. For some it might be a snazzy whisk, a super sharp knife or a hand mixer that zips with the best of them. I, however, am not nearly as refined (a.k.a. mature) as my culinary cohorts. Sure, I’ve got gizmos and gadgets a plenty (yes that is a Little Mermaid reference. I am 10 today), but none thrills my baking gene quite as much as the bunny spatula picture above. Like I said, I am 10.
My love for the bunny spatula runs deep. It first appeared a few springs ago when Jared returned from a trip to St. Louis. He stopped into Williams-Sonoma to pick up a surprise for me (pretty groovy, huh?) and came home proudly toting his perfect find. Since then, it’s seen me through scores of cookie batches, dozens of muffins and countless odds and ends that require skillful spatula-ing. And even after all those gos in the kitchen — and subsequent washings — that cute-as-a-button bunny face remains perfectly intact. Here, here for solid craftsmanship.
When push comes to shove, the spatula (bunny face or not) is my kitchen tool of choice. How about you? What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without? Any fun stories about kitchen-related gift giving you’d like to share? I can’t wait to hear it!
