A tale of two kitchens

Well, we survived moving. Barely. I would love to complain about all the things that went wrong and people who tried to screw us over, but it would just get ugly. So instead, let's talk about the important things. My new kitchen.

So just for comparison, this is what I have been living with for the past two years:

Note the infinitesimally small counter space (which we had to put in, I might add). And the impossibly moldy nasty uncleanable walls. And general ick. Ick ick ick.

My new kitchen leaves me speechless (but only for a moment, don't worry)

Helloooooooooooooooo counter space! What, you don't see it?

There it is. All over the place!!!

And best of all, my dear darling husband bought me a converter for my even more dear, more darling kitchenaid. It runs off 110V and here we have 220. Seriously we have been lugging this thing around for 6 years just dreaming of actually freaking using it. 

Ohhh, 6 quart kitchenaid stand mixer love. I can't wait to whip up a batch of swiss meringue buttercream in less than 2 hours!! Or cookies. Or cakes. Or cupcakes. Or macarons. Oh, the possibilities are endless.

Well, I'm off to get some groceries so I can start showing you pictures of actual food! Happy weekend everyone!


  1. Love love love! May you make many fun and delicious goodies in that marvelous kitchen !!!

  2. love you E! I love my kitchen aid! :) enjoy!

  3. how great. Don't see how you did it without the Kitchen Aid. I use mine almost everyday!

  4. This post is hilarious! I share your inthusiasm for counter space. It's so great finally having a REAL kitchen... My Kitchenaid broke down on friday, just as I was about to make this:,14716,L-3085641,00.html. Had to knead by hand :(
    Have lots of fun in your amazing kitchen!

  5. Thanks everyone! We're all enjoying the ridiculously huge space... although it does give me more space to mess up, too...
