Essential Kitchen Accessories – forget all the STUFF! – A Guest Post!

Jerin herself is a passionate cook and blogger who specializes in providing information on and reviews of food processors (which I think is fantastic – considering I don’t have a food processor *gasp* and I’ve learned a lot from her site!
