My American Kitchen. What does your kitchen mean to you? I know that in our house the kitchen is the central core of our home where many activities go on. Eating and food preparation, though the primary activities, are only two of the many things that take place in our American kitchen. I’m sure many other American families would admit that their kitchen is one of the most well-used and trafficked rooms in their home. Our kitchen is a gathering place for entertaining and celebrating with our family and friends, our kitchen island is a huge craft table or desk for the kids to work on their homework while I am busily preparing their meals. One side of the refrigerator is a gigantic magnet used to display one-of-a-kind art projects, school flyers, and photos of our favorite relatives and friends. The built in desk in one corner is my “office” where I keep my calendar of family activities, important phone numbers and messages, and favorite recipe books.
Because our kitchen is my domain where I can prepare nutritious and delicious snacks and meals to keep my family healthy and my friends smiling, and because it also serves as a gathering place for many other things, I want my kitchen to be clean, organized, functional, and stylish. I want my kitchen to be a reflection of the love and pride I have in my home, family, and country.
As the operational hub of our home, I need my kitchen to be “decked” out with all of the tools that will make my job of chief domestic engineer easier and more enjoyable. Everything from fine cookware and cutlery, to decorative serving platters and stylish pencil sharpeners, make a difference in our home. My American Kitchen is a fabulous website to find blogs on topics ranging from quick and easy weeknight family and freezer-friendly recipes, decorative serving and table setting ideas to backyard grilling, knife sharpening tips, and fun party ideas.
We hope that you enjoy reading our upcoming blogs about how to make your daily kitchen activities and entertaining more efficient with a decorative flare. Your kitchen can be the heart of your American home that keeps your family happy and healthy. I know that when I make healthy no-fuss recipes in no-fuss cookware, or when we throw a party where everyone can eat, drink, and be merry, it brings a smile to many faces.
