Japanese chefs whip eggs with chopsticks.

Anyhow, people have been cooking long before there were modern conveniences like electric appliances. They lighten some of the manual labor, but it's important to remember that billions of people used to cook without the aid of something that plugs into a wall.

Heck, there are probably several billion people on this planet right now without an electric mixer or food processor.

There are very few, if any, recipes you can't make without a mixer or food processor. I used to know a lady who made cookies with a chopstick- utterly awesome.

Awesome! Thanks :) And that is pretty cool, never seen that before. I use chopsticks for a lot of things in the kitchen too--it's often more convenient. Just never mixed cookie batter before haha

Sure. I like the way cookies turn out when mixed by hand with a wooden spoon. Somehow they seem more tender.

Thank you Susan! I like hand-mixing because I feel like it's part of the baking experience :)
