I think you will understand what I mean when I say love often originates in the kitchen. From a simple cup of tea, a nourishing weekday breakfast or more elaborate baking projects, good food makes us all feel loved.
While we are talking love, on Valentine’s Day supermarket red roses and smiling soft toys are really not my thing. However, when I discovered our kitchen almost completely covered in heart shaped sticky notes I had to smile and count my lucky stars. Theses hearts then transformed into a spontaneous artwork above our coffee machine. Who would have thought a $3.00 packet of sticky notes could create so much fun and love.
Candied fennel seed from Herbie's were also a gift from my love. What is not to love about a man who knows his way around the spice section and isn't afraid to buy something different?
Few things fill the kitchen with love more than a batch of homemade biscuits. I do not claim to bake super healthy biscuits but I am happy knowing they contain the basic ingredients of proper butter, flour, sugar, eggs from our chooks, and homemade vanilla extract. A teaspoon or two of cocoa or a handful of sultanas helps to keep things interesting.
Are you feeling a little love in your kitchen?
What are you cooking or loving at the moment?
Happy weekend friends x
