I usually buy my pb at a local Asian market because it's cheaper and more like the all natural style. This time, for some reason, I only had the overpriced imitation pb from the German grocery store. It tasted kinda Crisco-esque but I wanted those cookies, so I just went with it. They still tasted pretty good, but wow! did it make the dough fluffy! I'm certain it's what contributed to making nearly every cookie break in half on the cooling racks.
By the way - thank you Martha Stewart for the idea of using little curtain tension rods to organize large, flat items. I've added more rods and items since this picture, but suffice to say there is hardly a clang when I have to pull out the right piece!
Never mind that tension rods here are 4 euro + each.... It's part of the pain of organizing. The counter is looking pretty good now:
but now it's even better since Stefan finally got around to installing the under-counter lights we'd purchased.
Um. Hello. That is MY kitchen.Our knives are finally out of the drawer and neatly organized. Did you most knives aren't dulled from chopping, but from improper storage (ie banging against stuff in the drawers)? I'm also happy that they're out of reach of the little people that visit us from time to time.
Yep, we're pretty happy with the kitchen. All the hard work is paying off and it feels good to enjoy the results! We're hoping to get my jam jar lamp thing finished - we tried this weekend, but ran into a few hiccups, so once we talk to our electrician buddy we hope to get that finished this week! Stay tuned!
