My stove is adequate but I would like to replace it sometime with a stainless steel gas stove. But the oven is large and it will be great for our Thanksgiving turkey.
The pantry is beyond the stove. I am not showing you the insides because we have only been here for a week and I am not organized yet.
Across from the stove is the microwave and refrigerator. Again it would be nice to have a stainless steel fridge but I think we will keep things as they are for now.
Below are pictures of my friend Lyla’s kitchen. She doesn’t have a blog but I asked her to send me pictures of her kitchen. We have just reconnected after not seeing each other since we were twelve years old. She loves to cook and wanted to share her kitchen in Michigan. Her problem was lack of counter space. She extended her counters in front of and around the windows to allow more work space and places for people to help out in the kitchen.
She made her kitchen work for her. This is how all of you made your kitchens work for you. I was so glad to see what all of you had done. Here are all of the links in alphabetical order.
Dave from My Year on the Grill
Dave is trying to take over his wife’s kitchen. He is slowly getting more and more cabinet space for his grilling condiments. His wife is a talented faux artist because, I swear, his back wall looks like real brick. Some of his kitchen pieces were wedding gifts from the real Star Trek stars.
JoAnn has a knitting blog but she also loves to cook. Her kitchen is small and efficient with a wonderful place for cookbooks at the end of her counter. I was touched by the plaque that she displays next to her stove which was originally in her Mother’s kitchen. She leaves us with a recipe for Two-toned fudge brownies.
Kate gives us a picture of the progression of her ideas of what makes a great kitchen. If June Cleaver and Margaret Anderson can have lots of counter space why can’t she. Her kitchen island is very important to her. I think she cooks in pearls.
Katherine and her family have survived Katrina and moved to the mountains of Tennesee. One of the features in her kitchen is her Grandmother’s Turkey platter which has survived four moves. Her beautiful kitchen is the hub of her home and in the center of everything.
Mary’s kitchen is just what I would have expected. She lives in Oregon and her kitchen is bright, beautiful and organized. You have to see her full and functional pantry. She turns out amazing food on a daily basis.
Natashya turns out beautiful food from a small but efficient kitchen. She packs alot of cooking tools into a small space. Her collection of bundt pans and full pot rack are to me envied. She also has a very handy husband.
The other Penny has just moved into a new home and is making it her own in so many ways. Her kitchen is absolutely beautiful. She has accessorized beautifully and I am waiting for her first Beef Bourguignon.
Rosa is cooking out of a beautiful kitchen in Germany. She has a unique storage area and lots of sun coming through her kitchen windows. She loves to make her own pasta.
Toni lives in a 900 sq. ft. Tuscan style older home in California. She remodeled her kitchen a few years ago and it is stunning. Her pride and joy is the hand made glass light fixture over her kitchen island.
