I’ve been thinking about all the things we create in the kitchen or la cuisine each day.  There is so much joy that comes from being self-sufficient, learning how to create something new, or simply, making a mess with the kiddos.

I love all the learning that takes place in our kitchen, and even though at times it seems there is no end to the kitchen creating and & cleaning,  it brings us all joy.  I’ve decided that the kitchen is the room I enjoy cleaning most.  We love being there.  It is the heart of our home.  We cook, work, do homework, and art projects: all in the kitchen.

This summer we’ve began a daily bread routine, learned to can/bottle our favorite garden soups, sauces, salsas, etc.  Our pantry is now full of gloriously beautiful glass bottles and a rainbow of colors {mostly rainbows of red from the salsa, tomato sauce, & tomato soup}.

cuisine in bloom is the start of a new series depicting the beauty that can grow in our homes…in our kitchens as we learn together and teach one another the basic beauties of food, cooking, and self-sustaining skills.  I hope one day my children will look back at these memories and find themselves full of skills, joy, and my love for each of them. ~ katrina
