... so G-d Made a Dog

This is an absolutely precious remake of Paul Harvey's, So G-d Made a Farmer.

Does Lollie have to live in the kitchen?

While life is currently too exhausting and hectic to think about cooking, i decided a snippet of joy or something to bring a smile is equally as nice to blog about.

Happy birthday blog... you are now 3!!!

Time flies...

I was preparing my next post, when i realized that this month is 3 years since i started this silly little blog.  Yes, the time has really flown by. 

I've enjoyed sharing my recipes and cooking experiences, but i've also enjoyed finding some absolutely amazing and inspiring kitchens.  One question... why did i re-do my kitchen 3 years ago before the advent of pinterest?  I enjoy my kitchen, but i must say i've discovered so many possibilities that books and magazines never showed me.  Perhaps i'm supposed to keep searching so that one day, when i have a real kitchen -- a kitchen with a window, a gas stove, and room for a sous-chef -- i can open my pinterest file and say "now THIS is the kitchen i want!"

So here's my latest dream kitchen.  I'd love to know if part of the roof opens.  Oh no.  I hope this isn't a kitchen from a movie set. 

Sweet dreams until i post tomorrow's sweet 4th of July treat.

A dining room converted to a kitchen fit for an emporer!

The new owners of this charming 'bama home had the challenge of converting the formal dining room to its new kitchen.  Although a bit too formal for me (enter, the Napoleon III silver-leaf mirror above the Five-Star stove), it nonetheless has an inviting warmth and friendliness.

I love the arched built-in shelves!

Notice how the owners kept the feel of the formal dining room by building the marble sink to resemble a buffet, and the 9' long oval island, a dining table.

I think this kitchen probably looks great at night, with dim lighting.

Beautiful light from the large bay window and double-doors opening to the patio. This is my kind of kitchen view!

Happy Sun day!
