Fabulous kitchens...we just love them...the heart of the home.
I think our Sunday Supper posts originated way back when we started blogging, because of our love for good food, beautiful kitchens and the wonderful atmosphere that you can create around the whole dining experience...
The Sister's are very big on atmosphere too...But if you have been following for long, you already know that...
I can just see myself in this wonderful kitchen, barefoot with a glass of wine chopping and stirring and creating a delicious...but simple meal...the key for me is simple...because remember for us it's about the entire experience...not just working ourselves into a frenzy...
So here's another simple delicious couple of recipes for you to try...I promise that you will be glad that you pinned or saved these...
