Like Ol' Salty and Cap'n Pepper I have lived with many kitchens through the years. The kitchen is the heart of the home, it's amazing what a coat of paint, or a roll of red gingham contact paper can do to transform even the most outdated kitchens. You can put on a spectacular meal with the barest necessities. Primp yourself and wear an apron, eat on pretty dishes....even if they are nonmatching thrift store finds.
When we were house shopping here in Texas, I fell in love with our kitchen. It immediately reminded me of Leave it to Beaver .
Not that I have watched every episode of Beaver enough to have their kitchen in my permanent memory or anything.
Not that I knew exactly which episode to put on and take a picture of. It's hard to be this way. Sigh.
While we are chatting in the kitchen I thought I'd share a quick tip that makes my life easier. I am often clipping recipes or printing them from the internet. After they have been tried and true I clip and tape them to regular size recipe cards and file them. It's quick and easy and beats writing them out. I had a huge bin full of clipped recipes and was always digging through them.
Thanks for hanging out in the kitchen with me. Do you have kitchen wisdom? Are you happy with yours? What kind of kitchen do you dream of?
PS I made the filigree hearts last week...they are good and very easy.
