There are so many whisks out there how do you know which one to use? There are 3 main whisks people use, The French Whisk, The Balloon Whisk and The Flat Whisk.
1- French Whisk: This is a great all purpose whisk. It has long straight sides which are great for whipping air into ingredients. It is also ideal for emulsifying mayonnaise and vinaigrettes.
2- The Balloon Whisk: This whisks shape of rounded sides and bulbous shape are ideal for aeration and foods that require volume- think egg whites and whip cream.
3- The Flat Whisk- The other name you hear for this is “the roux whisk”. This is great for using with shallow vessels for pan sauces and gravies. It is also for lifting poached eggs out of the water.

Of all the parties and all the gatherings that we have each year, this one is by far my favorite. It is a time for Lil’ Hatt and I to get to know Coach’s boys better and to celebrate their season. It makes all the hours, all the sacrifices, all of the exhaustion of football season, all the loneliness, all the time away from Coach worthwhile. Coach does it for them and we are happy to share him because of each one of THEM. This is a family, a relationship like none other and I am blessed to be a part of it! Wishing you and your family and these boys in particular sweet enchilada, rice and beans, guacamole, cinnamon cream cheese square dreams! Until next week…
