Who doesn’t dream of those big beautiful kitchens you see on those TV cooking shows or in magazines. I know I have for years.
Many people that know me know I love to cook and often ask if I have a large chef’s size kitchen. Some are surprised when I say “No”. We live in an average North East suburban sized house with a standard 10 x 10 foot kitchen with minimal counter space. There isn’t even enough room for a small kitchen table, but may be that’s because of the bookcase holding some of my cookbook collection. For over many years I have managed to create tasty dishes for my family and friends proving that the size of the kitchen really doesn’t matter in order to make a delicious meal. Whether it is my own small kitchen or the one I grew up with, the kitchen has always held lot of fun times and memories.
Weekends and especially Sunday’s are special for me, it is the one day of the week when I can enjoy being home and spend more time in the kitchen than any other day of the week. This is the day I usually plan meals for the work week, check what I have in the cupboard and refrigerator, bake bread for the week’s lunches and prepare a dinner that is often more than the quick meals I prepare on a weeknight.
Won’t you please come and join me in my kitchen!
