A Well Stocked Kitchen

A few pots and pans, mixing spoons, and large bowls are what I started with not too long ago.  Since then, my cupboards have stayed the same size, but the contests have expanded dramatically.  I’m trying to weed through and either give away or store items that I no longer use.  Here’s are my keepers (and a list of things I’d love to have!).
