Are there certain things you can’t, or would really prefer not to, live without in your kitchen?
Tell me one…
Then we’ll tell you a bunch of ours.
Today on the podcast Anita, Yvonne and I are talking about ‘kitchen MUST haves’.

Here’s a little preview of what’s in our kitchens…
Listen to find out the rest of what makes our kitchens our favorite rooms.
My first kitchen essential is really more an essential not to have.
I cannot stand electrical outlets on the backsplash. Learn how I avoided having them and managed to still have loads of plugs. Click here.
We all love decorative items, like table lamps and art in a kitchen to make it feel more like a gathering place, than a utilitarian room. It is the hub of most homes, so why not treat it like any other room?
See what I mean?
Cookbooks are a logical item in a kitchen but don’t just pile them up in a cabinet or tossed on a shelf. Use them for recipes and for decor.
These are a few of my favorites:
A vintage volume of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by none other than Julia Child.
Barefoot Contesssa Family Style by Ina Garten
The Foothills Cuisine of Blackberry Farm by Sam Beall & Marah Stets
While we are on the subject of food, my kitchen, well more so the meals I prepare in my kitchen, feel incomplete without a sprinkling of my favorite sea salt.
It is called Maldon.
