If you have ever watched Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, create amazing dishes on her cooking show, you can tell she has a plethora of shiny kitchen appliances and gadgets at her disposal. A high-end electric mixer to whip up fabulous layer cakes? Check. A set of top-of-the-line bakeware to promote crispy golden crusts for pies and tarts? Check. Swanky equipment is certainly nice to have, but sometimes it is fun to get back to basics and work with simple tools of the trade; tools like wooden mixing spoons and multi-use tongs that you keep in a crock by the stovetop. In a recent conversation with Southern Living, Drummond was asked to name her three favorite tools in her home kitchen and why she likes them. (And we can bet you depend on these same tools.)
The most dependable tools in her arsenal.
