Kat's Entry

Princess And The Pea

Here is our first international entry and it comes from Kat over in England (I love Internet travel). This cozy shelf holds more than a selection of her cookbooks but also a hint of Kat's world travels. She points out the chilies drying on the left that she will use to make Harissa paste. Hanging on the right is nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and some other spices from the Caribbean. If you splash it with water it refreshes the smell. I say you can't get anymore of a 'green' room freshener than that! The framed photos are of Kat and her husband Paul in China.
Kat reports that her favorite book for general use is "Family Book" which she has made nearly all of the recipes. Her highest rated dessert book is "The Mary Berry Book" as she declares, "is the best book I ever bought". So with that rave review she is requesting "Mary Berry's Complete Cookbook" if she wins the giveaway.
And if you thought she only has the books in the top photo you would be mistaken.......

This shelf collapsed under the weight of many others in her collection!
Thanks for your entry Kat and good luck.
Don't forget August 12th is the deadline. Details here.

Funny you should say I have a green kitchen... I actually do - 3 walls are pale mint green and the fireplace wall is a darker green so it really is a green room!

I can't wait to see the other entries... I love getting a glimpse of what other people have in their kitchens around the world! Half of the time, it is a countries food that makes me want to travel there!
