My Kitchen

I’m always curious about other peoples’ kitchens, what the layout is and how they’re decorated. And since this is a food blog, I thought I would give y’all a tour of my cozy little kitchen.  The place where all the cooking magic happens! 🙂

This is the entrance to the kitchen.  As you can see, I have one long counter, and the rest of the kitchen space is very open.  I love that because our apartment kitchen was so cramped that there was barely any room to move if both Jay and I were in there together.  Here that’s not a problem! 

Since counter space is limited, the microwave sits on its own wooden stand.  Coffee cups and other cooking knick knacks have a home on the shelf underneath.  And now that our kitchen table is actually in the kitchen rather than tucked away in a corner, we’ve been using it more often.

 

I love this sign.

Here’s a view down the other end of the countertop.  The large toaster oven you see is what I do probably 90% of my baking in.  It’s a convection oven, and other than my large muffin pan and pizza pan, all my baking dishes fit in it.  It uses a lot less energy than the big oven, which means I save money!  As you’ve also probably noticed by now, I have a lot of apple-y things.  That wasn’t really planned to begin with, but when we bought our table and chairs from Ikea the only color chairs they had in stock were red.  I could have waited, but I decided to go ahead and get the red chairs, and then I had to think how I could decorate around them.  Now I really like the red and white colors in the kitchen, it gives it a homey, comforting feel I think.  I also have several cow-related decorations as well, so maybe I have a combination apple-cow themed kitchen?  In any case, I like it! 🙂

Speaking of cows, here are my Moo Moo’s on the shelf above the sink.

Finally, here’s a view back towards the entrance to the kitchen.  Notice the little tribute to my Florida roots above the computer.

And that’s my kitchen!  I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tour.  My kitchen may be humble and nothing fancy, but it’s cozy and it’s definitely the heart of my home 🙂
