My kitchen is 9 feet by 6 feet, and it has everything that I need! I actually find a smaller kitchen to be much easier to work in, you waste much less movement trying to find or move things. Plus it has the added benefit of being what I would call a “minimalism enforcer”. I’m not necessarily immune to all consumerist tendencies, but having a small living space really helps curb those urges that I do have. Any time I see a lovely stand mixer, the logical part of my brain says, “where on earth would you put that?” Of course, as with most consumer goods, if you just wait it out a bit you’ll find you don’t really need as much as you think.
Since this blog is essentially an exploration of all the things that give me joy as well as a chronicling of my never ending quest to get the most out of life, I think I may begin re-posting some of my recipes here too. I began with just a cooking blog, and while I appreciate the free wheeling nature of this space, I do want to include cooking (since it’s one of my favorite pastimes). So get ready for some original recipes coming your way as well as more chat on minimalism, frugality, trying new things, photography, and whatever else I stumble upon!
