You know what I mean. I eat what I cook.
And you know what that means...hmmm.
Lots and lots of walking and gardening to keep the sugar gremlins under control.
This is a kitchen that seems now to have the full responsibility of keeping me grounded.
I have written before how I feel that the kitchen is the heart of our homes.
My farmhouse/french style kitchen has not complained yet and hopefully never will.
I try to keep her spic and span and all shined up.
Today, some very sweet friends- Stacey from Poofing the Pillows as well as Laura
from White Spray Paint, are sharing their kitchens with you too.
I realize that I have five favorite things about my kitchen that inspire me and encourage me.
Everyone needs a little inspiring, right?
How about a Brown Mountain Cake recipe too-yes, no, maybe???
If you like a seriously, scrumptious rich chocolate cake, then this one is for you.
I know many of you are staying away from sweets, so I just left the recipe for last.
One of the very favorite things I like about my kitchen are the walls of windows.
On each side of the breakfast nook are windows.
These windows bless me with the privilege of watching Mother nature awaken bright eyed
in the Spring and close her heavy eyes in the Winter.
Colorful cardinals flit through the air without a care.
While shy and wary deer appear to tiptoe gracefully by with many a worry and care, always
looking over their shoulders in anticipation of needing to flee.
My island is so handy.
Today she is decorated just for you and Spring.
My island is just right for me - not too big, not to small.
It is a built in fixture with electricity for mixing, decorating, serving and of course a spot for a
My pantry and pantry door make me happy and as you can see, there are pastries and
such on the door too.
My pantry is not huge but it is so much larger than the our last home and I can keep it all
organized, the sugar, vanilla, flour...oh yes and there is real food in there too.
My ceiling, I love my ceiling and my light fixture.
Combined together, I feel like I am living in another time period and that is such a
awesome combination to me.
I think that all of those feelings, inspire me to bake more...hmmm.
This is one moist cake and when you top it with wild flowers and raspberries, it makes for
a fabulous presentation!
If you like raspberries you might also enjoy Raspberry Almond Cake.
