with love and pita:






i had kitchens on the brain lately. i love nothing more than eating, (drinking wine!) cooking and hanging with friends on the weekends.

or any time really.

one of our dear friends happens to be a chef and since i am always hungry, every time we are at their place for dinner - it feels like Christmas to me.

finally, though it can be intimidating to cook for a "chef", i found the courage to whip up a greek meal for them. i figured even a chef probably wants to be fed sometimes.

i had way too many people over for my small space but we all huddled around my tiny dining table and had a (meat) ball - with tzatziki, pita bread and greek salad.

oh, and really good wine.

the only thing that can beat it is being in Greece!

i am still searching for my dream kitchen and until then i figure it’s the process of cooking with friends that will give my kitchen (no matter what it looks like) some soul, not an expensive stove.

Have a great weekend everyone!

aren't these kitchens amazing? i found them here.

even if i had a pantry like that - i can guarantee it wouldn't look this perfect.

Beautiful pictures. I love a big kitchen and the style of these are just amazing. I have a small kitchen since moving into an apartment but it doesn't stop me from cooking and baking(one of my favorite past times) in it.
:D

Oh, I'm drooloing over those gorgeous photos! My kitchen is getting there but far from looking like those!

And you are one brave lady to cook for a chef...I'd be so intimidated. I'm sure you did a superb job. You can't go wrong with Greek food. We just went to our local Annual Greek festival yesterday...yum yum yum!
