My Kitchen

I don’t know about you but for me the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in my home. I love to cook! There is just something about creating things in the kitchen that is relaxing and calming. I can focus on something else for the time being. One of my favorite things is when we go out to eat and we really like a new dish I go home and try to make to it and see how it turns out. Sometimes its better other times they defiantly don’t tell you everything in it on the menu because something is missing. Although cooking is great you have to make sure you have the right tools to be able to do the things you want to do. It is finding those basic kitchen tools that are good quality that can sometimes be more frustrating than anything. You think you got something that is last but a month or so down the road either it broke or the knives you got are dull after minimal use.

I guess I would say one of the most important kitchen tools I have are my kitchen knives. I use them everyday for one thing or another. Finding that right set can sometimes be frustrating and expensive. Some of the problems I’ve had was the set was on sale and looked great I got it home and the knives were to dull. So I got a different set and the handle broke the third time I used the knife. I finally found a knife set that was good quality and wouldn’t break my bank. Most sets out there that are the good quality that we all want cost so much that you have to sit back and question is it really worth the investment especially if I can find one that is just as good for half the price.

Anyways the point is that the kitchen is a great room to start with when you are creating your home. Get the tools that you need to be able to be the chef of your home. Your kitchen could be just a place you go to warm up your left over’s after a night out for dinner or your kitchen could be its own restaurant in your home, that great place to go and get whatever type of food you desire at the moment. So get your Favorite cookbook out and go to your kitchen and make it a chefs kitchen.


  1. These last few months I've done quite a lot of research on kitchen knives, especially chef's knives. There was so much to learn! I shared what I learned about it at my blog: http://marksblackpot.blogspot.com/2009/04/chefs-knives-tools-of-trade.html

  2. Thanks for following my blog Kari! It's nice to find you. Yes, I agree, good knives are worth their weight in gold, you just don't want to have to literally pay a bar of gold to get them!
