I love cooking for people that I love. It makes me feel all happy and warm inside. The holidays are my favorite time to cook, even though it's bittersweet. When I was younger, every holiday was spent at my grandparents' house, and my grandmother did all of the cooking. When she passed away suddenly from cancer in 2002, my mom and I took over the cooking duties, but we still have holiday dinners at my grandfather's house. There's something about being in my grandmother's kitchen, making her recipes, that makes me feel closer to her.
Here are some of my favorite things in my kitchen:
My matroyshka measuring cups, a nod to my husband's Russian heritage
|Hard Anodized Cookware|
|Oil and Vinegar bottles|
|lazy ladle and spoon|
So what do y'all love about cooking and kitchens?
