I'm a pretty serious foodie. My love of food started at an early age and only grew as my abuelita and mami taught me how to cook. To this day, whenever I go home to visit my mom, she's always got a cool new kitchen tool. Sometimes it's something silly (like a watermelon knife) and other times it's something that I now use almost all the time (like my avocado peeler).

No matter what the brand new gadget I'm eyeing, I definiltey have my top 10 kitchen tools that I absolutely, positively could NOT live without. These are the tools that make me happy, help me make great food and keep me coming back for more...food, that is!

8" Chef's Knife

Ever since I took my vegetarian cooking classes back in June, I have really fallen in love with my 8" chef's knife. Once I learned how to properly use it (most of us actually use knives incorrectly!), it's become my favorite tool. In fact, I pretty much ignore all of my other knives these days. This one's all I need!

Some of my favorites are mesh colander, tongs, baking trays and tupperware food storage. I cannot live without the baking trays or tupperware.

Most of these ideas are good. My favorite is the lime squeezer it's the best way to get all the juice out.
