Or any other utensils needed for cooking?

I'm in the process of rearranging my kitchen, so it's a pleasure even when I have to clean it.

Tonight, I'm trying to find the perfect cupboard for my counter top appliances, aka, the MIXER.

I found the cupboard! OH Happy Day!!!

What I found, when rearranging this particular cupboard was 5 rolling pins. I knew I owned more than most; but I thought maybe 3 tops. icon_redface.gif

My other obsession is finding the perfect whisk. I've lost count with those. icon_rolleyes.gif

Geez, I've always known I'm a hoarder, but I may need intervention. icon_lol.gif

I have at least four.

No five.

Oh oh oh six, seven. But some of those are just the little decorator ones that texturize fondant--those don't count do they???



















eight...I'm not thinking about this anymore!

I own at least four that I can think of, but you know what, I use the same one every time for everything, even crazier is that it is one of those standard wooden ones and was purchased at a grocery store ages ago when I had none. It's funny because I sometimes think, " oh I'll use my marble rolling pin for this," or ,"the teflon-coated one will be best for that." and then I get mad at these rolling pins mid-project and grab my trusty wooden one every single time!

I have Mom's old wooden rolling pin--hands down nothing works like that one.

But I have a good rolling pin story and even though it's about a wonderful Memphis candy store--I heard it on the Food Channel. Well Dinstuhl's is famous for their fabulous cashew crunch--it is exquisite. 'Been making it the same way for like a hundred years with this big ole awkward wooden roling pin--they cook the candy and pour it out on this big table and then they roll it out so it can be broken up when it sets up mmmm so good.

They decided to go all high tech and got a teflon state of the art just the right size rolling pin. But the candy din taste as good! They had to switch back to the old rolling pin, the nostalgiac favorite.

And they all lived happily ever after. crunch crunch
