  1. A very good list, especially the sea salt. I have found that to make the biggest difference in my cooking. That and a good olive oil.

  2. I am in favor of all of these and you are right, I need to go get some fresh nutmeg. But I have to add another that I believe is a must in any kitchen. GOOD vanilla. I love La Vencedora Mexican vanilla and buy the bottles by the dozen to hand out to friends. What do you use?

  3. Carrie, I love Mexican vanilla. Do you procure yours at the grocery store, online, abroad, etc.?

    Colleen, I agree with you too on that one.

    I think I need to do a Part 2. There are a few I had to leave out ("top 5" sounds better than "top 7" if you know what I mean!). I'm off to compose that post. It's naptime :)


  4. I order mine online--off ebay actually;) I had a friend who often went to New Mexico who always brought it back for me, but we moved so I had to find another source. I buy few bottles at a time and then have the perfect housewarming gift on hand.

  5. I invite you to my blog:
