I've been a baker most of my life, as well as a food writer and recipe developer. As long as I've baked, I've used Nielsen-Massey pure vanilla. It's the best tasting vanilla that you can buy. I love its wonderful fragrance and great flavor.

Emile Henry Casserole
Emile Henry Casserole : Emile Henry Flame Top
is the ONLY ceramic you can use over an open flame! But
don't stop there. These casseroles can go from the
freezer to the oven to the table. They'll even go
from the microwave to the dishwasher! They can be used
under a broiler, and on electric and halogen stovetops,
as well. This innovative ceramic is much lighter than
cast iron, cleans up easily, and won't be damaged
by metal utensils. The handles are designed especially
for oven mitts.

This good looking dish cooks beautifully, holds heat a long time, and is easy to clean. It's lighter weight than other pots of the same size, so it's easier for me to lift and carry. That's important to me, because I am 5' and small. I have a flat-top electric range. I've bought more of the Emile Henry Flame Top pots because I think they're worth every penny.
Wusthof Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku : Similar to a butcher knife, the Japanese-style santoku knife is a multipurpose gem for slicing, cubing, or dicing. Available in 5" or 7", the distinctive hollow-ground edge that alternates scallops on both sides of the blade, and yields a smooth, clean cut. About Wusthof Classic: Precision-forged blades of Wusthof's own high-carbon, stain-resistant steel alloy, for a lasting edge that is easy to resharpen. Distinctive bolster prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. Handle is a virtually indestructible composite, buffed by hand for a smooth finish and triple-riveted to the full tang for optimum strength and balance. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
This knife is wonderful. It's lightweight, easy to handle and use, and slices cleanly. It holds an edge for a long time. This is my workhorse knife, and I use it constantly. I am 5' & small and this knife is perfect for me. My husband, who's 5'10" also enjoys using this knife. I'm a food writer and receipe developer, so I'm in the kitchen a lot.
