Did you have a nice weekend?

I spent the last two days watching my new cabinets go up in my kitchen!

The guys worked so hard!


The sun was shining on the cabinets, so the pictures didn’t come out too good.

When my new range comes in, they’ll make a template for the granite counter top.


New countertop vs. old, ugly, gray counter top!


I need help.  Do you have any advice on window treatments?


Here are the 3 most viewed recipes from last week’s Blog Hop!


Grandmothers Chow Chow from Miz Helen’s Country Cottage



Cauliflower from Want to Get Crafty?



Amish Friendship Bread from Raising the Gang Our Way


Thanks for sharing your recipes!

    Wow, how nice it must feel to have a new kitchen! That’s so awesome! It’s gorgeous. About window treatments, for our kitchen when we first moved in, I just went to the curtain section of every store to see what was available. I also looked online, and looked at a lot of pictures. We ended up getting a pretty half curtain with a valance on top of it in our colors. Good Luck!

    Today I’ve linked up my Plum Tart. It is the NY times most requested and most printed recipe of all time! (cause it’s so good.)

    I hope you have a great week and thanks for hosting!

    Love the progress on your kitchen, can’t wait to see how your counters look installed. I shared an awesome recipe for Chicken Kabobs, even if you don’t make the kabobs the marinade is delicious! thanks for hosting!

    Hi Jane!

    I added my baked bean recipe. It’s very easy and I’ve probably made this recipe three times within the last month for cookouts. I love your cabinets! They look great and the counter top is gorgeous! On the window treatment, you want about a 12″ long custom made valance that is permanently attached to a board. Just my opinion. :) It will be interesting to see what your other readers suggest! Enjoy your kitchen! Thanks for the linky!

      That’s cool that they’re similar! I guess I need to wait until the kitchen is done so I get a better feel of what to do about curtains or blinds.

    Jane – your new cupboards are just gorgeous! How exciting!! I would suggest a valance for the top of your window. If you have a curtain across the bottom, they may get splattered and I like being able to look out. Just keep looking – even the Dollar Stores have some lovely window treatments. You’ll know when you find the one ‘just right’ for you. Thanks for hosting this week’s party.

    I was able to score a set of those cool cellular shades from Bed, Bath and Beyond for $10 on clearance. Those things are super nice (mine’s white, but they have a lot of colors) and if you can find them on sale, they can be frugal, too!

    Congratulations on your new kitchen!! You are going to absolutely love it ☺ I don’t really have any recommendations for window coverings as I like my kitchen window left bare. Hope you find something you like.

    Blessings, Nici

    Yea for new kitchens!!! Hunter Douglas makes a really cool shade that you can raise up and down and it is cordless! Home Depot and Lowes have similar ones for super cheap, but the quality isn’t as good. They are perfect if you want lots of light and don’t want to mess with getting curtains dirty in the kitchen!

    Your new kitchen and MY new kitchen are twins! Really. We just got the cupboards in and the new countertop is almost identical to the sample you show in the picture. Ours is in (a little bit more black in ours) and I LOVE it! I’ve been so busy with the renovations that I haven’t had time to BLOG them yet but there will be some photos soon. Anyhow, you’ve chosen a winner! :)

    Wow, those cabinets are beautiful! You must be so excited – I remember when we redid our kitchen before selling our home and I just couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen and start using the cabinets and new counters… Thanks so much for hosting – there’s so much delicious food for me to check out – and I’ve shared a recipe for Parsnip and Bacon Soup…

  16. 31


    NICE! Personally, I love naked windows in the kitchen so I say leave them alone (especially the one over the sink!) You have got to be excited for the finished product to be done!!!

    Wow! It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like I had anything worthwhile to share on a link up … in fact, I think the last time I shared a recipe was a couple of years ago back when I still had MuffinFixation up and running. My son & I have recently gone back to being gluten free, though, which means I get creative with the food again and this week made up a batch of savory tomato pancakes. They would be easily be freezable for later use if he and I hadn’t devoured them as quickly as we had :) It’s good to be back … can’t wait to catch up on what everyone’s been up to!
