Those that know me-know, I am not big on collecting kitchen gadgets. It might stem from my fierce culinary training. We were programmed to believe that you can't hide behind all the fancy kitchen accouterments. Frankly, there was no time to reach for the special doohickey for this or that; which explains why for many years I drank my coffee black - adding milk takes an extra 30 seconds. Well things have changed, somewhat. I now put milk in my coffee and have gotten used to a few good kitchen gadgets, my coffee maker, The KitchenAid Proline Coffee Maker. It is worthy of touting about. I know I am not alone, a good cup of coffee in the AM can help get you on the right foot for the day.
