My American Country Kitchen
As a blogger, it’s not just a room in my kitchen, it’s a place of business as well. It’s the hub of my household, it’s where the day starts with the first cup of coffee and scrambled egg on my range, where I find myself turning off the lights at the end of the day. My kitchen has helped me, and my family, grow and thrive. It may not be much, but it’s our American Kitchen Story.

I live in a studio apartment but thankfully it has a real kitchen. Real but small! Therefore I never actually sit in there like I would if it were a normal size. Kitchens have always drawn me in, both to cook and bake in, as well as to hang out in with friends and loved ones. Over a meal or a cup of coffee or tea. There’s nothing homier than a kitchen.

My kitchen is my place to unwind after a stressful day, where I know I can make at least the next couple hours of our lives happy, nourishing and beautiful. We have an open floor plan, which makes me feel so connected to my husband while I’m cooking, even if he’s working at his desk. It’s one of my absolute favorite spaces.
My kitchen is my favorite room in the house! Not because of the way it looks necessarily, but because of the inspiration it brings, the food it churns out, and the place where I can feel destressed and most at home. I love it!
Our kitchen is a place where we get together, talk, cook, eat and share fun times
The kitchen is the center of our home. We do so much more than just cook there.

My kitchen is the heart of my home. Love, nourishment, creativity, family, friends, communication…. etc etc.
It is so true that our kitchen is one the of the places we spend most of our time. My husband and I choose to hand wash and dry our dishes – so we spend that time talking about our days. It is where I/we cook a meal together to share just us two (plus a dog at our feet) or with a few close friends. We do our reading in the kitchen, our coffee drinking, and board game playing. It is the first room we had painted and “put together” as we spend most of our time there! It isn’t always a place of “peace” – it actually holds many moments of cooking or stress frustration, but is also a place where much joy comes too! Mine is just as cheesy 🙂
Growing up the kitchen was my favorite place to hang out with my mom. I would sit at the kitchen table doing my homework while she cooked. There is no other room in the house that can make you feel home more than the kitchen.
Speaking for a generation that just may be considered the *older* generation. You see, my child is grown. So are the grandchildren. They all have families of their own. We are kind of scattered around. I no longer cook all the holiday meals. Don’t have big Sunday dinners anymore. Sound like a pity party?? NAH!!!!! You should hear all the memories that are shared when we do get together! ALL of them are connected to food, laughter and great occasions centered around the KITCHEN!!! The great grandchildren are making their own memories. Know how I know? When they walk in the door the first words spoken are “NANA, I’m hungry!” And, off to the kitchen we go! I wouldn’t trade a kitchen for any other space you could name..
The kitchen is the center of our home. I love that our table is in our kitchen and that there is plenty of space for us to cook or play games or just visit.
A place to cook and be creative.
The kitchen is where all the magic happens! It brings our family together and nourishes us.
The kitchen is the gathering place in our home. I’ve always wanted it to be a warm and inviting space.
I have fond memories of the kitchen my grandmother had where she taught us so many lessons in cooking! I use those today!
My kitchen is the place where I can relieve the stress of the day. After a hard day it’s nice to come home and be creative in a way I want to be. It’s nice to be able to create and have it come out the way I want it to (most of the time ;).
Our kitchen is the soul of our home. We have raised three boys who have used this kitchen and abused it. We are starting to update it now!!! Its pure love!!!
My kitchen is the foundation of the whole family, it Is a place our family gathers for conversations, sharing, stories, learning and best of all making meals together.

My kitchen is a place where I make healthy dinners for my family, and a place where I teach my daughter to cook and now I am teaching my granddaughter how to cook, and it is a cozy place where everyone gathers to eat and share what went on during the day-a place to bond with those I love!

My kitchen is where I spent a good potion of my days, being a Mom of 3. Lots of cooking, cleaning, meal planning, etc goes on in there. Our kitchen growing up was open to much of the rest of our house so it holds a lot memories for me.

My husband and I just remodeled our kitchen. It now has a country style with really nice decor that we were able to find online. It is my favorite place in the entire house! I love cooking in it and just spending time in there. Can you show pictures of the country kitchens from the show? I would love to see them!
