So Why Haven't I Been Blogging?

Two reasons:

1. I am a tax accountant and one of our big tax deadlines is coming up. I've been spending almost every waking moment at work, right now. Last night (yes, FRIDAY), I was there until 2am. It sucks, but it will all be over on Tuesday!

2. We bought a house!!

Clearly, reason two is much much more exciting. So, without further ado, here is what it looks like:

I'll spare you pictures of every room, but since this is a cooking blog, I thought most of you would be interested in the kitchen. This is one of the reasons we liked the house so much. In our apartment, there is no space in the kitchen. It makes it very hard to move around while we're cooking, and as any good entertainer knows - everyone always ends up in the kitchen, so it was important that we have a big space to entertain in.

In the picture above you can see the other reason we liked the house so much: the HUGE deck! IT spans the entire back of the house and even has a spot that looks like its made for a hot tub (maybe one day, we'll actually put one there!)


  1. WOW, congratulation Melissa, how exciting!!!!
    I love the kitchen, is big and seems has a lot of light coming in from the French door. Beautiful! Is this mean we'll see most cooking action coming?

  2. Congrats! It's amazing when you buy your own house - we did it last year!! And as a fellow accountant, I hear ya re: long hours and deadlines. I'm starting to get ready for budget season and year end.....and the addition of 2 new companies! Can't wait to see what kind of food you'll be creating in your new kitchen.

  3. congrats on your new house! very exciting. Your kitchen and deck are beautiful.
