So where does all the cooking take place?
Don't you ever wonder what the kitchen, or should I call it the lab, looks like where all the incredible looking recipes are concocted? The birth place of wild, crazy and completely delicious recipes.
Well Ilva had a great idea! Show us your kitchen. A brilliant idea I thought and decided to squeeze in this post.
It was my mother whom I remember always saying,
"Why in heavens name do they call the kitchen a kitchen and not the living room!"
After all these years I truly understand what she means. The kitchen is the main "living" room in our home too.
The picture above shows you the kitchen looking into the dining room, which leads into the living room. From the main entrance to the house there is a side door leading into the kitchen, making it easier to bring in the groceries and take out the trash!
This one is also taken from the same place, but looking directly at the kitchen. I have a ceramic stove top where I prepare all our meals. If you are wondering "Well she does not have too many cookbooks," let me take away any misconceptions! I decided to sort a few (OK! many) of them yesterday and bring those that I do not use often upstairs. I have a few more on the shelves of our living room too. I recently bought a pretty cool wire frame where I hang a few of the pictures I have taken this past year.
This one shows you a little more of the dining and living area. Yes, that is our Christmas tree in the back. The living room has four huge glass doors, which opens to a small porch and yard.
From the opposite angle you see the rest of the kitchen. As I do the dishes I can keep tabs on what my neighbors are up to LOL! The little wine shelf at the bottom stacks up some of our favorite wines.
Hope you all enjoyed this little tour of my kitchen. Why don't you show us yours?
