About this Episode


Life happens in the kitchen.

And, life is better in the kitchen with our ‘Kitchen MUST haves’.  Listen in as we chat about the items that we can’t live without in our kitchens.  Maybe one or more will become favorites of yours too.  If you have a ‘kitchen must have’ call us and let us know what it is so we can try it out.

We three like to add a table lamp, artwork and other decor items to the kitchen so it feels less utilitarian.

Anita uses big bowls on her counter as decor and get her other kitchen styling tips.  CLICK HERE

Yvonne’s kitchen is not complete with her well used cookbooks.

Here are a few of our favorites:

A vintage volume of Mastering the Art of French Cooking  by Julia Child

Barefoot Contessa Family Style  by Ina Garten

The Foothills Cuisine of Blackberry Farm  by Sam Beall & Marah Stets

Cook Like A Rock Star by Anne Burrell

Making Of A Cook by Madeleine Kamman

The Heart Of The Artichoke by David Tannis

Saveur: The New Classic Cookbook by Saveur Magazine
