Kitchen Favorites

Today, I have decided to head over to Modern Country Style, where Sarah has invited us to "Kitchen Favorites Linky Party" to share with others the things that we love in our kitchens. I love being in the kitchen but in the Little House it is a challenge to say the least, so I will show you a few things that help keep me positive.

Confession time...I love to cook but have a huge problem cleaning up after myself, something that I have struggle with forever, so the area here at the sink is my love/hate place.


When I found this at a local thrift shop it was placed right above the sink and the words encourage and remind me of why I so enjoy to cook and nourish my loved ones.


I found this years ago in the Simple Country Pleasures magazine, I tore it out and put it on the cork board that I have over my small work surface. I never tire of the truth of the words and picture.



Last but not least, the very favorite thing in my kitchen would have to be my cookbook collection and the one above is the latest addition.

That's it for me, now I think I will go on over to the party and visit some other favorites. Come on over and join up if you would like to share too. Here's the link.

Have a happy Thursday.

Hello, Visiting from MCS. I have folders and folders of things that have lived on cork boards in my various lives. I can't get rid of them as their is still so much for me to learn from them. I'm a pretty slow learner.

Fun! I have a strong dislike of cleaning up after myself in the kitchen, too, but once it's done, it's oh so nice... until next time.

I've been wanting that cookbook for awhile! I've heard very good things. :)

I treasure my cookbooks too. Need to remember to flip through them more often.

Great post I really like the kitchen prayer board, I like all the stuff around the side of the prayer like the little ginger bread man, and all the cooking utensils, I haven’t seen something like this before it’s really nice.
Regards
Edward

I love your post. I have the same trouble of cleaning up after myself sometimes. I need the prayer too. Love the cookbook collection, the old tried and true ones.

Red Gate Farm said...

I don't like cleaning up either... but do like my kitchen to BE clean! Hmmmm, what a dilema :)

I'll have to check out that newest cookbook...

I just love being in my kitchen, it truly is the heart of my home.
It's very small and only gives me a limited amount of workspace but hey, that really DOES make sure you clear up as you go along!

I love the words above you sink. What a perfect reminder that what we do is not drudgery but of glory to God! Our families are our most important ministry and we need to do it without grumbling and with thankfulness (I'm preaching to myself here). :)

Blessings, Debbie

What a great idea. I'll have to go explore all the links, especially since we're getting ready to do our kitchen remodel. I love seeing with others love!
