As everyone makes their way into back-to-school routines we start to nest more. Gone are lazy days and the thrill of spontaneity. While Mother Nature still blasts heat into the September air around here, we do start to longingly covet fall. It’s the time of year we hunker down, revert to routines, embrace structure, and enjoy family meals.
There’s no shortage of press about the value of “Sunday dinner” and eating together as a family instead of on the run. Experts tell us that cooking at home is healthier and more affordable than eating out. Sure, there are time crunches and daily activities that get in the way, but no one said a home cooked meal and sitting together as family must be a gourmet experience. There’s just something to be said for tuning out electronics instead of each other.
A kitchen is the heart of the home, after all. Having a well stocked pantry along with appliances and a space that inspires you to cook and eat is what it takes to really make a house a home. Reconnect over family meals. With the right appliances and kitchen set up, you’ll be drooling over more than your meal.
