I'll share a few of my "can't live without" items. Fagor electric pressure cooker. So wonderful to be able to start something cooking and know it is going to turn off at the proper time. Can be used as slow cooker or rice cooker also. One hour to cook garbanzos ! So much better than canned. Large high quality nonstick electric skillet. Use it every day. Mastercook recipe software. Very reasonably priced and makes it easy to collect recipes on the web and organize them and print. Silicone baking mat - Make our own corn chips using corn tortillas sprayed with lime juice (using a Misto) and sprinkled with Twangerz Chili-Lime-Salt. They brown better on the silicone mat than just a cookie sheet. Yummy!!
