In The Kitchen

I have been spending way too much time in the kitchen, not cooking, but cleaning.
My annual, winter ritual of cleaning out the kitchen cabinets...
With it being just the hubs and I, they stay pretty tidy, they don't need purging, just cleaning.
I am almost done, I love my kitchen, it is small but cozy.

Have a look...

Here is a peek inside a few of the cabinets...


Glasses and Mugs

Staples and Spices

Baking and Recipes

These small white "drawers" hold decorating materials for cupcakes and cookies.
Each holiday/season has it's own drawer.

The hubs installed these cork boards on the inside of several cabinet doors.
They are very helpful in having easy access to items like this.

The Pantry
The hubs has already opened and shoved
several chip bags around.
He's very good at shoving, I am very good at organizing.

I have been cooking, my Home Chef meals...
having an organized kitchen makes cooking much easier and more pleasurable,
wouldn't you agree?
I always cook a lot more during the winter.


  1. Hello, I agree about having things organized. Your kitchen is beautiful. Looks like a great kitchen for cooking. Happy Friday, enjoy your day! Have a great weekend!

  2. I don't think your kitchen is small...It is beautiful and organized.Love your gorgeous table and the yellow flowers.Hugs!

  3. Very nice kitchen! It's one of my favorite rooms in our house.

  4. Love a u shape kitchen and that cork board is a great idea!! Your eating area is indeed cozy, I will be right over:)

  5. I’ve been cleaning the kitchen too, cupboards, fridge and ovens. It’s too cold to venture outside!

  6. I always love it when you start cleaning. It is so motivating to me.

  7. I love cozy. I also love the organization!! I must do a spring clean of my own kitchen and organize it. That would be way better than knocking spices out of the cabinet while I root around for the one I want.

  8. I love your table setting with the flowers - that always makes a mealtime cheery and welcoming doesn't it.
    Your kitchen is compact and perfect for working in... everything within reach. Oooooh your pantry, so organised Debbie... I have pantry-envy ;D) The cork board is a great idea and I love that you could see that a bit of 'shoving' had taken place amongst the chip packets lol xx

  9. It's a cute little kitchen and just the right size. Looks really nice.

  10. Your cupboards look picture perfect. I'm not sure I want to show mine to too many people.

  11. WoW....looks great. I need to get home and get busy going through things and rid myself of somethings. Cute little kitchen.

  12. you kitchen is on of the most ELEGANT i ever saw dear Debbie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    just award wining kitchen indeed:)

    being tidy all the time keeps stuff close to their original neat conditions


  13. I am impressed, so organised. well done. That is another job off your list. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  14. A lovely kitchen and so very organised; I am impressed. Love your beautiful round table with those green chairs. A beautiful spot to sit and enjoy a meal or a cup of tea.

  15. Wow, what a gorgeous home you have created!

  16. Wow you have great organized cupboards, mine are not that well organized, although I have been working on a better solution for my pantry, but it still needs work, great ideas you have :)

  17. You are inspiring me in cleaning and organizing my kitchen soon. My daughter and her family are moving into their new home the first of May. Then the cleaning of my house begins. I am so excited to get more organized. Sharing a kitchen and cooking meals for one another has not be conducive to having it as organized as I would like. Your kitchen is beautiful and gave me some great ideas.
    Sending loving thoughts and hugs!

  18. A good looking kitchen.
    Always good to be organised.

    All the best Jan

  19. Good for you! cleaning the kitchen is probably the biggest chore. I've been doing the same - along with some purging - lots of purging! Your kitchen looks great!
