In our kitchen, we love to cook and play, creating foods that help my husband, my son-in-love, and me thrive! As we just celebrated Christmas in our house, I’ll share with you 3 staples in our kitchen that make life easier for us, and maybe you can even snag those after holiday shopping specials!
Knives that cut.
Sharp knives that cut which are easy and safe to use is the starting point in our kitchen. It’s the tool that gets the most mileage. We invest knives from my favorite brand Wüsthof. They’re our #1 staple (and we even bring them along with us when we travel around the world).

A solid chopping block.
Our #2 staple is a chopping block. Having multiple cutting boards is not only helpful in the kitchen, but also important for food safety (which we can talk more about another time). I leave the chopping block on display on the counter, as it sets our kitchen stage and invites us to cook. I have fallen for the Boos Block to cut produce.
Boos carries all different shapes and sizes for various food prep needs. When you take care of your block, it can last for 10-20 years. Find out how to maintain and maximize the shelf life of your block here.
Keep whole foods on-hand.
Our #3 staple is keeping whole foods that are fresh and in season on heavy rotation. Our kitchen serves as an experimentation room, as we find the foods that we enjoy eating the most and help us feel our best.
With multiple mouths to feed, I get some help from online grocers, such as Fresh Direct, Food Kick, and Amazon Prime. For items they don’t carry, and to see what else is available, we take trips to Whole Foods, and our local Farmers Markets in NYC.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Bliss in the Kitchen!
