Kitchen Color Ideas

Posted by Alyssa on May 24, 2019

kitchen color

It can be so tricky picking what paint color you're going to put up in your kitchen. Figuring out how to match your cabinets, walls, countertops, backsplash, etc. can be intimidating, but don't worry. Remember that paint is just paint and if you hate it, you can change it. White is a safe bet when it comes to kitchens, but this year it seems like more and more colors are being brought in! I've been researching different kitchen colors and here are three that I love right now.

Birthday Cake Recipes

Posted by Alyssa on May 16, 2019

birthday cake

My daughter’s birthday is coming up and if there is one thing she’s even more excited for than gifts, it’s her birthday cake. We’ve spent many afternoons discussing what flavor it should be and what decorations it will have. I guess when you’re three there isn’t anything much more exciting than blowing out candles. Anyway, as you can probably tell I’ve been spending a lot of time looking up birthday cake recipes because if I’m going to serve something covered in sprinkles with a Rapunzel figurine on top, you better believe it’s going to taste good. Here are some of the recipes I’m considering. 

Birthday Cake Recipes

CONFETTI PARTY CAKE from Smitten Kitchen

BIG CHOCOLATE BIRTHDAY CAKE from The Food Network

WHITE CAKE from A Bountiful Kitchen

Luckily my girl shares my love for chocolate, so I'm thinking that's the direction we'll go in.

How to Organize Your Kitchen

Posted by Alyssa on May 15, 2019

kitchen

If there is one room in my home that gets messier faster than any other, it’s the kitchen. Knowing how to organize your kitchen is key to keeping meal prep, grocery unloading, cooking, and cleaning up a breeze! Keep reading for some tips on how to organize your kitchen and get started today! 

How to Organize Your Kitchen

pantry

  1. Start by clearing out all your cupboards and cabinets. Once everything is emptied out, wipe down the shelves, toss out expired food, empty boxes, and donate any kitchen tools you aren’t using.
  2. Assess your kitchen and figure out what makes sense to be in each cabinet. Where should your food go? Your appliances? Dishes? You use your kitchen so you know best where things should belong.
  3. Once you start filling your cabinets back up, make sure you keep things you use most at eye level. If you can’t reach it easily it will probably not be used.
  4. After your kitchen is all packed up, do your best to keep it that way!

Farmhouse Kitchens

kitchen

Farmhouse kitchens are some of the most popular kitchens right now, and for good reason! With their simple style, airy feel, and bright atmosphere there are few kitchens more welcoming than a farmhouse kitchen. There are some key elements that you need to include in your kitchen if you’re hoping to embrace the farmhouse style. 

Farmhouse Kitchens

Fill your kitchen with natural elements. Keep your color scheme simple with white, black, and wood. Whether you choose to paint your cabinets or leave them natural, the key is keeping things simple.

Keeping your kitchen open, airy, and bright is important and one way to do that is to limit your upper cabinets. Replace your upper cabinets with open shelving.

Farmhouse sinks are the most popular farmhouse style of sink for the kitchen. Install one of those sinks and you’ll immediately give your kitchen the farmhouse feel.

Transplanting Succulents

Posted by Alyssa on May 10, 2019

succulents

Succulents are a popular potted plant, but have you ever thought about transplanting them from inside to your yard? Or from one pot to another? Just like other plants, succulents can be transplanted successfully. Before moving any succulents outside, make sure you do your research to make sure you've picked the right type of succulent for your climate. 

Transplanting Succulents

succulents

via Gardener's Path

Succulents have very low, shallow roots so it’s easy to dig them up and move them around. Make sure you plant your succulent the same depth as it is coming from and make sure the soil is well drained. Carefully shake the dirt from the roots of your succulent and gently pat dirt around the succulent to help prop it up. Make sure you don’t water the succulent for a couple of days to give the roots time to heal. Do not keep your succulent wet.

Good luck with your succulents!
