I figured if I was going to have a blog entitled, “Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen,” I should probably show you a few pictures of my kitchen and why I enjoy being in it so much!
We moved into a new house (March 2021). We downsized after living in our dream home for 5 years. Thankfully, I still have a pretty nice-sized kitchen. I’ve always had more traditional looking kitchens in the past, with warm wood cabinets and wood floors. This more contemporary design really suits us both, however.
So this is my kitchen. I know it looks pretty sparse. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more minimalist. I don’t like cleaning all kinds of junk stacked up on my counters, so I leave it pretty clean except when I’m actually cooking.
I love experimenting and trying new recipes in the kitchen. There’s an outside door just to the left of the dishwasher which leads out to our back patio. We do a lot of grilling out there, too.
It’s easy to move around in this kitchen. Plus, the island has so many cabinets which makes storage easier for someone who has a lot of kitchen stuff!
Yes, we do keep the coffee/tea maker out since we use it a lot. And of course, there are always family and friend pictures hanging up on the refrigerator to make things more homey.
These are just a few reasons why I “Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen!”
