Kitchen Essentials: Mixing Bowls

When it comes to the basics it doesn't get any more basic or necessary than a good set of mixing bowls.  I first started cooking in college out of was either I learned to cook home cooked meals or I wasn't going to have one until Thanksgiving or the nearest visit back to Nashville!  As I soon learned my kitchen was ill-equipt to handle such a challenge as were many of my friend's kitchens.  To make most anything there was usually a certain amount of mixing that was involved.  This was usually done in a large soup pot, a cereal bowl far too small for the task at hand or in a ziplock bag as those were our only options at hand.  This was simply not going to work for me!  It drove me crazy trying to mix chicken salad in a bowl that caused more to land on the counter or floor than what would actually remain in the bowl.  As anyone who has helped me move or seen my kitchen, you are well aware of the fact that I don't like to be in need of specific kitchen items, especially the basics...this is a dirrect result of such situations!  When I went off to college my parents bought me a set of plates, forks, knives, spoons, pots and pans but none of us thought to invest in a set of mixing bowls.  That was quickly remedied when I purchased these....The William-Sonoma set of 10 mixing bowls!
Even down to the tiniest little bowl, I can find a use for each size! Never again to want for a bowl in which to mix my chicken salad, pimento cheese, pumpkin bread, etc!  There is simply nothing more standard, more necessary, more logical than investing in these wonderful bowls!!!  They truly changed my culinary outlook!
