kitchen scissors

I’m a big fan of scissors in the kitchen. I use them for cutting the tops and tails off beans and snow peas, and cutting through really tough things like clamshell packaging. I once got stopped in an airport because they thought I had a knife in my bag. It was actually a pair of […]

When I buy a bunch of celery from the grocery store, I always cut off all the leaves and the stem ends, and use them in soup. I like being able to make use of the unlovable parts of vegetables. Do you know how to make homemade soup stock? Is there anyone in your life […]
