What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Cookbook club. Choose a cookbook (could be a new one or a classic tome) to focus on, and try out at least one recipe from the book at some point over the course of the month. Your group can decide how to handle the gatherings: The host could cook a dish from the book, or you could bring ingredients and cook something from the book together, then discuss your thoughts while you munch.
Jennison reconfigured the kitchen, moving the range to the center of the room in a walnut butcher block-topped island and aligning the sink and refrigerator along one wall. She splurged on some of the kitchen fixtures but saved by outfitting Ikea cabinets with Shaker-style wood doors that she hand-painted bluish black.She punched through the rear kitchen wall and added a sliding door to bring in natural light and connect the space to a new deck. Cabinet paint: Black Knight 2136-10, Benjamin Moore; cabinet doors: Semihandmade; Jack stool: M. Crow; island butcher block: Boos; refrigerator: Sub-Zero
