The Big News

WE HAVE MOVED. Which is exactly what I'm going to blame for my lack of reading and cooking real food instead of chocolate comfort lately. Let's go with it, ok?

Here are some things I have learned about us:

  1. We have been totally spoiled by our built-in bookshelves at our last few places.
  2. This has allowed us plausible deniability regarding the sheer weight of how many books we own.
  3. I am a hoarder of kitchen gadgets and spices.
  4. None of this matters any more because we have so much space.
 LOOK AT THE SPACE. Also look at how many cookbooks I have.

LOOK AT THE SPACE. Also look at how many cookbooks I have.

Welcome to Chicago Kitchen 3.0 life, where there's a washer / dryer, a shelf for cookbooks, outlets on every wall (yes, we've already blown the fuse once, shh), and best of all, more counter space than I know what to do with -- although who am I kidding, I'm going to roll out babka and cinnamon rolls, mix my own spices, and candy more orange peels than you can imagine. 

What would you make with this much space? Where's the best place to put pots and pans? Will I ever get the limoncello that Daily knocked off the counter out of my tile? Stay tuned, and hit me up as another year of cooking, reading, and blabberblogging unveils, post by post.

 Just look at them all.
