The heart of our home is definitely The Kitchen.
We all gravitate towards the kitchen and while a good deal of cooking/baking does occur in there, it is used for so much more.
In our old house, the kitchen was a tiny square and two people did not comfortably fit into the space.
To have room to breathe is bliss!
The units are white, shaker style. The walls are still painted in the cream colour, favoured by the builders.
There are little pops of red scattered throughout to break it up.
I have plans for this room as soon as the house has properly settled, I think we have ten months left to wait.
It contains both my happy corner and favourite things.
My favourite corner is next to the oven and contains the radio. Perfect for catching up with The Archers – my guilty pleasure!
Next to the radio is my Kitchen Aid mixer, which I waited patiently for.
Eventually, I bought it myself and I still think it is fantastic.
It makes such a difference to the most ordinary of recipes.
In the drawer under the hob, lives the hachoir.
I love using fresh herbs in my cooking. This year I have even managed to grow some in our garden.
This little gadget makes the whole process easier and I believe, it is a bit safer than using a knife.
As we are slipping into Autumn, my thoughts turn to more hearty meals.
However, if I am honest, I have continued to use the slow cooker throughout the summer.
I wouldn’t be without it. It is so lovely to come home from work and be greeted by the smell of your dinner.
That said, I find the slow cooker really versatile, as well as Minestrone Soup, I make lasagnas, crumbles and stroganoffs in it.
In fact we have two, I have been known to have a huge lasagna in one and an apple crumble in another – yum!
On the opposite side to the Kitchen Aid mixer, is our food processor.
Now I know professionals would not agree, but honestly this baby make the best pastry!
Coleslaw, hummus, falafels, you name it, your wish is this machine’s command, expertly executed in minutes.
It is fabulous and everything goes into the dishwasher.
That concludes the tour around my kitchen, exploring my favourite things!
What are your favourite things in your kitchen?
For the avoidance of doubt – nothing was sponsored in this post, it is purely my views on the things I love ha!
Have a lovely day!
