Fun in the Kitchen ... with Dolce & Gabbana

country home kitchen
While spending more time at my city home, during the summer, with all the fabulous restaurants and take out options within reach, - made it really easy to get away from home cooked. If you follow along on Instagram, you already know that I'm making an effort to make more home cooked meals.
When I'm in the kitchen an apron is always within reach to protect my clothing. 
This one I picked up at a tourist market, on one of my trips to Paris.

 Dolce and Gabbana love hanging out with me in the kitchen ... 
and patiently (ok .. not always so patient .. lol) wait for the apron to come off. 
They see it as a cue for playtime... before the table is set.

Top - The "Deusa"(Goddess) Wrist Mala - c/o Healing Glamour:

Silver Hematite and Larimar Guru Bead and a Lotus Charm Wrist Mala. Larimar aka: Blue Pectolite is a powerful stone for women especially and is believed to awaken great feminine energies. * A stone of forgiveness, it aids in depression and in releasing deep seeded emotional pain, attachments, resentment and fear. * Great for clearing negative energies and blockages. * Known as the Dolphin Stone and the Stone of the Sea it was created by fire and volcanic activity. Therefore, said to balance fire and water energies.

Autumn is the perfect time to get back in the kitchen ... stews, soups, pies, chili, roasts, slow cookers, 
did I mention pies... lol... and cakes and soon holiday cookies.

The heart of the home is the kitchen, after all.

You can check out the recipe for the soup I made HERE.

Do you find yourself cooking and baking more as the weather begins to cool?

You are the curator of your life so make it luxurious,

In The Kitchen - #1 - Potato, Chorizo, & Rapini Soup

Welcome to the first In The Kitchen! post...

With today's busy schedules more and more of us (myself included) have made eating out and ordering in, the norm.While I'm not a chef or nutritionist, I do know practicing good self care includes fueling the body and mind with nutritious meals - and not all restaurant food is nutritious. Also eating out on a regular basis can really "eat up" your disposable income - I don't know about you but, if I can eat healthy, and still be able to save for a nice pair of heels - well you know that I'm all in!! I hope as I share my adventures of getting back into the kitchen (on a regular basis), that you too will be inspired to cook more of your meals and desserts too!!

I hope you will stop in on Wednesdays to check out what I'm sharing from my kitchen ...from recipes to tips on cooking, baking, stocking pantry, and kitchen essentials etc. Remember I'm not a chef - so I'll be sharing easy to prepare dishes on the regular - not to say I may not get adventurous and try a dish that is out of my comfort zone.

Here is our first recipe in the series ... Potato, Chorizo, & Rapini Soup:
