If you need a little extra help in the kitchen, try turning to these heavenly helpers!

While many are very talented cooks, able to prepare the most elegant meals around, not everyone shares the same skills in the kitchen. For some of us, we are lucky enough not to burn the macaroni and cheese we put into the microwave!

Thankfully, you can turn to these patron saints in your time of need and ask for a little extra help in the kitchen. It may not guarantee a complete success, but at least you may not lose your temper!

Here is a slideshow that highlights 12 saints and food and drink that they are associated with.
