Recreating Grandmother’s Kitchen

Take a trip down memory lane and the nostalgic memories you have of spending time in Grandmother’s kitchen baking and cooking with lots of hugs and kisses mixed in too. I can remember my grandmother’s kitchen back in Europe.  We were very, very young when we would visit until we all finally ended up in one local place in the USA many years later. Her kitchen was not very big and had none of the stainless steel top-notch appliances and gadgets, granite counter tops, fancy back splashes or kitchen drawers stuffed with all kinds of tools like our kitchens have today. The kitchen was actually primitive with just the very basics but boy-oh-boy could she turn out the most delicious dishes and pastries! I think that it all boils down to how much skill and talent one actually has compared to a cook in a gourmet kitchen with no skill or talent. Also, Grandmother cooked with the most prized ingredients of all – LOVE, and you could really taste it!

Elements to create Grandmother’s Kitchen:
Vintage Apron(s) (preferably grandmother’s actual aprons)
Vintage Rolling Pins
Vintage Crockery
Vintage Tea Towels
Vintage Tablecloths
Vintage Canisters
Vintage Wooden Spoons
Family Heirlooms
Family Dinnerware

So bring out all your vintage items and re-create Grandmother’s kitchen. If you have kids then gather them together and even get your sister(s) and mom’s together for a day of baking and cooking and remembering the good-old-days!
