Kitchen Musings #19/31

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.

There are a few things that I can't say no to when the kids ask for something.  One is new books.  The other is baking cookies.  If I bake something for you, it means I like you...a lot.  Baking is therapeutic for me too.  When I asked the girls if they wanted anything to take on our trip to New Orleans, Destiny asked for Rice Krispie Treats and Autumn asked for Snickerdoodles.  I happily agreed.

As I baked in our 1960s era kitchen tonight, I couldn't help but wonder if Mrs. Riebel (the original owner of our house) enjoyed spending time in the kitchen like I do.  Did she bake cookies for her children?  Did she find baking to be relaxing?  Did she thumb through cookbooks looking for new recipes to try?  When I'm working in the kitchen, I get a good feeling, like this kitchen has seen a lot of love.  


  1. i love cooking. especially for my kids. i think that's a really cool way to think about a room. especially a kitchen like that. and i'm not sure you'll find out what the previous owner added to the character of that kitchen, but i have idea what the next owner will be able to assume about it. good post!

  2. I have always enjoyed reading about your adventures in the kitchen - whether baking, making a family favorite, or trying out a new recipe. And the "love" word shines through all of those posts - it seems to connect your family.
    Have a great trip to New Orleans!

  3. This is the motivation behind why having extra learning about a place can spare bunches of bucks for you. everest ethnic restaurant
