My essentials....



Tomato paste in can usually turns out to be such a waste. You only need a tbsp. or so generally. Once I discovered paste in a tube, I said goodbye to the cans. The first time I bought it I forgot to refrigerate it once it was opened...oops.

I like this tip! But I have a confession to make: when I cook with tomato paste, I often (gasp!) eat the unneeded extra right out of the can.

My newest and most favorite "essential" is All-Clad's new slow cooker. So far I've made killer ossobuco, meat sauce, beef stroganoff, and pea soup. It's great to have a nice dinner waiting when we get home from work. I love the paste in the tube too.
