You know I love cookies. I know you love cookies. We all love cookies, don't we? They're so easy to make, it takes only 15 minutes in the oven and calls for simple ingredients. All you need is the right equipment! Besides the basic whisk and spatula that are ever so important, other tools like a cookie sheet and ice-cream scoop come handy when you're making cookies. I fall back on all the tools that I've shopped from Home Centre. To say the least, using their cookie sheet has made my good cookies great. Instead of using parchment paper to make your cookies, use the cookie sheet from Home Centre, that ensures that your cookies don't burn or stick. As a food blogger, my job doesn't end there. I have to also style and photograph the food I make. For that, I'm always on a look out for great table ware and props. Home Centre has a great collection of table ware that I absolutely love. Make sure you check out their collection HERE.
