Well hello there. How did summer treat you? Were you beginning to hear crickets in my little, noble section of the blog-o-sphere?  It may appear as though I have ceased cooking and sharing but alas, I return with a renewed appetite not to mention, a new kitchen!

Why spend time walking from here to there? Never underestimate the power of proximity.

I do, however, claim a reasonable measure of entitlement. The brilliant placement and organization of these two cabinets was my brainchild. Salud!

Voila! Welcome to my noble kitchen. It continues to be that place where

cooking meets creative expression

mealtime matters.

Don’t you think?  Join us in the coming weeks as we begin the next cooking series. Its about to get a little saucy around here.
