Kitchen ideas


I think that I would be happy with Martha Stewart’s Seal Harbor kitchen that can be bought at Home Depot.  I would just add a double oven and a double door stainless steel refrigerator and stainless steel dish washer.


I would also add a little wine cooler in there somewhere.


I love that corner pantry door idea.


I love the above idea for inside the pantry.  A place for cookbooks is so neat.  I have little chalkboard labels for my containers in my pantry that I got at King Arthur Flour.  And I have a long shelf for my cookbooks.


I love the above idea for putting the wine cooler and I would make a coffee station there, also.  I could fit it into a smaller space with only one cooler and the chalk board not as wide.


I like the cathedral ceiling idea but only have the shiplap in the ceiling with the open beams, not everywhere on the backsplash and walls.  I like the floor.


I saw the above kitchen that was in a condo over in Wolfeboro, NH.  I don’t like the shape of the cabinets, but I like the triangle window above the corner and I love the glass door cabinets.  I also like the wine bottle holder and the rack for spices next to the stove.

Something about the kitchen just seemed neat to me.  The condo was on a lake so was basically a lake house.

Beautiful area.


I like a breakfast nook with a window seat on one side.  I love the above table and chairs and the corner windows.



All the corner nook needs is the above chandelier.



I saw an article on Ina Garten’s favorite cookbooks.  I printed out the list because I really like the Barefoot Contessa’s style of cooking.  I have a lot of Ina’s cookbooks that she wrote and my favorite of her books is the Paris cookbook.

Ina Garten’s Favorite Cookbooks are as follows:


The New York Times Cookbook by Craig Claiborne

The Silver Palate Cookbook by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins

Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, vol. 1 & 2

Italian Cooking by Ruth Rodgers & Rose Gray

The Loaves & Fishes Cookbook by Anna Pump

Cold Weather Cooking by Sarah Leah Chase

Bistro Cooking by Patricia Wells

The Union Square Cookbook by Danny Meyer & Michael Romano

I think that the Barefoot Contessa gets a lot of inspirations from her cookbooks.  She must have a ton of cookbooks and I liked finding a list of her favorites.  I also like how she says that has a few basic recipes that she has perfected and uses them a lot in her cooking.


I like the style of the above screen door.

I’ve loved to cook ever since I was  a little kid and had to take cooking and sewing in junior high school.  It always just fascinated me.  Then my senior year in high school I had to take fashion and fabrics and loved that also.

The cooking channel on TV is just enjoyable to watch.  Especially on Saturday mornings when they have new programs.

And that’s my thoughts for today.
