Make Holiday Baking Easier

Make Holiday Baking Easier

Great Storage Ideas for the Home Baker Just like a lot of people, the holidays don’t really kick in for me until the tree is trimmed, presents are wrapped, and the holiday baking commences. A personal favorite are these Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheels or my Quick Bread Cinnamon Rolls. Here are some great accessories to aide […]

Subtle Gray and White Kitchen

Subtle Gray and White Kitchen

  Hearing ‘Florida condo’, you generally envision something in either coastal hues or vibrant tones instead of gray, but these clients wanted something subtle and neutral for their recent purchase.   It’s All Gotta Go They sold the midwestern homestead, relocated to the sunshine state, and these clients were anxious for something different. The first-floor […]

Bungalow on a Budget

Bungalow on a Budget

A recently widowed client’s decision to simplify her life included moving into a smaller home. Like any new home, there were many projects to be completed. Hers included updating the kitchen she inherited upon moving in. As with many clients, her budget was limited. There were a few caveats from the beginning: 1) the existing […]

Classic Kitchen in Braden Woods

Classic Kitchen in Braden Woods

After many years in their home, this Braden Woods couple had updated everything except the kitchen. We helped them rectify that. Over the years, warm wood tones had permeated the rest of the décor so it only made sense to carry that same feel into the rejuvenated kitchen area. The layout of the old kitchen […]

Wing and a Prayer: Lemon Ginger Wings

It’s fall and that means it is tailgating time again! It’s not that I’m an enthusiastic football fan, but anytime food is involved, sports are better.

A Quick Dinner Between Stops: Tomato, Asparagus, & Pesto Salad with Chicken

A Quick Dinner Between Stops: Tomato, Asparagus, & Pesto Salad with Chicken

It pays to plan ahead. I get mocked for it all the time, but I don’t care. Last weekend I spent the afternoon making pesto out of the abundance of basil that is all over the place this time of year. It’s quick, simple, fragrant, and delicious. Just 5 ingredients: basil, garlic, toasted nuts, parmesan […]

Look At Me: 4 Easy Focal Points for Your Kitchen

It’s a question I ask early in the selection process: what do you want people to notice first when they walk into your kitchen? There is really no wrong answer, just a matter of personal preference. I’ve used backsplash material to concentrate a person’s gaze, counters, pieces of art, even nothing at all. Here are […]

A Cook’s Kitchen

A Cook’s Kitchen

I always enjoy working with clients who have a passion for cooking. It’s fun to talk about not only appropriate storage needs and aesthetic desires, but also the virtues of various olive oils, cookware, and techniques. This particular project also had an additional perk – it was challenging. You see, we wanted to create a […]

Stolen Inspiration: Chipotle Poached Shrimp Tacos

Stolen Inspiration: Chipotle Poached Shrimp Tacos

I find that inspiration for new dishes comes from a multitude of sources: childhood memories, fantastic restaurant meals, conversation with friends, bizarre dreams (yes, it’s true – I do dream about cooking from time to time), etc. But I think the most often used source of inspiration comes from the plethora of cooking and travel […]
