The Iris’s are out now.  I think that they are just beautiful.


I think that the above space would be ideal to plan into a kitchen.  I love the just right size wine cooler and I like the size of the space.  I don’t like the way the space is decorated and I don’t like the choice for knobs or what they have stored in the glass front cupboards.  I like the sophet lights in the ceiling and the lights under the cabinets.  I like the crown molding.  I can’t stand the white subway backsplash.   Everyone to their own taste.  But I’d love a space like that.


I think the above space is even cooler.  Double wine cooler, too.  I like the drawer knobs and fun chalk board.  Love the cake pedestals.

I have a Le Creuset grill pan like the one above.   Neat idea to grill salmon, zuchinni and asparagus in it.



On Sur le Table they have cooking classes you can take and one of the classes was on making amazing summer cakes like Victoria Sponge cake with summer berries, Raspberry Buttermilk cake and Cocoa Zucchini mini bundt cakes.  They used specialty pans and incorporated seasonal ingredients.  I just love their ideas on cooking classes.  I can follow a recipe and sometimes look up recipes for their ideas and try them out.

Another idea on Sur le Table was a 4th of July party with pressure cooked baked beans, buttermilk fried chicken, grilled broccoli salad with raisins and pecans and the above Summer Berry Cobbler.  I have a Le Creuset pan similar to the one above that would be perfect for a berry cobbler.


I have been trying to be careful of what I eat and saw the above recipe for Creamy Pineapple Ginger Slaw.  I’m going to try it and pinned the link to the recipe on my pinterest.


I like to journal and also I have an organizer that I like to write in.  I saw the above stencil on Etsy that you can keep in your organizer to use.  I ordered it today, because there is no way I could find one like that around here.


I’ve watched Jamie Oliver on TV before and he really knows how to put flavor in food.  I found a recipe of his that is called “The tastiest Roast Chicken Recipe known to man”.

I pinned the recipe on my Chicken Recipes Pinterest board.


I like plants and saw the above plant that is called a Sweet Angel Vine.  I’ve seen them before, but didn’t know what they call them.


I love the above idea for a fire pit.  I like the stone wall, the stone terrace and the landscaping.  In Woodstock, if you walk across the middle covered bridge and look to the left there is a house that has the almost exact set up just over the bank on their lawn.

And that’s my interests for June 9th.
