House hunting and what’s cookin’ good lookin’
House hunting. Arg….What a chore! It’s much like dating, in my opinion. Especially when going to those daunting open houses. You walk in, sniff…ok no offensive odors. Walk around and think, “ok, I like this, I don’t like this, I could live with this, maybe.” We all know, like in finding the perfect mate, there are some non-negotiables. For me it is the kitchen. It can’t be too big, or too small. Just right… Lots of counter space, a gas stove ( none of those glass top wannabe cooking surfaces.) A place for my cooking supplies. A fridge located inside the kitchen, not around the corner. Counter space, or the ability to add more. Don’t get me wrong, I have my dream kitchen, but realize it may not be attainable in Saint Paul in house with all the other features we are looking for.
Why am I picky about my kitchen. (do you even read this blog?) I love to cook! The kitchen is the hub of my home. And…once the kids are a little older, I would love to start entertaining again.
So what’s cookin’ here?
