Kiss me in the kitchen

Valentine’s day is coming up, and we’ve got loads of gift ideas–for some lucky kitchen. Since Valentine’s falls on a Saturday this time ’round we think it is the perfect year to stay at home and enjoy something delicious in your kitchen and the comfort of your home. No matter if your enjoying the day on your own, with someone special, or with a group, your kitchen is a great place to have some fun this Valentine’s Day. Here are some ways to make this year one you and your kitchen won’t soon forget:

  • Pick up new piece of art for your kitchen. If you don’t have much wall space to work with, look for a small print that you can hang or perch on a tiny easel/cookbook stand. b

  • Spice up your kitchen and cook–or bake–something new and adventurous. You can find all kinds of recipes online. If you want to really take it up a notch, register for a cooking class. There are a host of options in Victoria, including Cook Culture, The London Chef–and check your local recreation centre for classes as well.
  • Treat yourself, and your kitchen, to something that will bring you happiness and health (caffeine counts toward well being and health, right?) year round. Here are some great additions to any home:
