Favorite Things: Prize possessions you can’t live without

This “TV knife” was a gift from Pat Mikolay’s dad more than three decades ago.

Fancying myself a gourmet cook with a wide assortment of gourmet cookware and knives, my most prized possession is a serrated knife that is inscribed “TV Knife,” which my late father bought me about 35 years ago from a television commercial. It is used several times a day, every day. I always think about my dad and chuckle when I pick it up. He knew my passion for cooking and unknowingly gave me my “favorite thing.”
