I don’t know about you, but my kitchen is the main hub of our home. From cooking and eating, all the way down the line to homework, arts and crafts, and play doh, it is all happening in my kitchen. Personally I love it! It is a lot easier to keep tabs on what is going on and who needs what when it is all unfolding in front of you. It can also make things a bit chaotic, but I have come to enjoy the controlled chaos that is my life. Controlled chaos aside, I do like to keep things as easy as possible. I want to share my favorite “go to” kitchen gadgets, what planning for meals looks like in our house, and how I try to keep us within a reasonable budget while still preparing healthy, delicious food.
