Terra cotta and stone textures give a kitchen that earthy feel. Also you can use terra cotta and rustic painted planters for your window or dining table herb garden. Lush plants tucked into over sized cast iron tea kettles or mosaic pots add life and color to your kitchen.

Three Things to Consider For Your Kitchen Remodelinsg Idea.
When you're ready for that new kitchen there are three things to consider in order to make your kitchen remodeling ideas a smash hit. This informative article will discuss the many options available to you for your kitchen remodeling ideas. Learn how to add some flair to the next project with a sink, some counter tops, and a few stylish pots and pans.
How Much Space Do You Have?
When creating your kitchen remodeling ideas you should think about the available space you have and then get creative. If you have enough room you may want to consider adding an island to the middle of the kitchen. This will add terrific value, not to mention a new dimension that most high end kitchens have. Once you have determined your space requirements you can look at other projects.
Not Just Another Sink
The looks and feel of your sink will incorporate two factors. The faucet and the design of the sink are the two primary considerations. When choosing a sink you should visit a local showroom to see the many shapes that are available. When establishing your kitchen remodeling ideas you should consider a double sink if space allows. Having a sink with two bowls is a very nice feature. Usually the two sides provide altogether different functions. One may be for rinsing while the other side may have a disposal and be for vegetables and such. Now once you have a sink chosen you need to consider the faucets.
The faucets are such an influential aspect to the innovative design of your project when making your kitchen remodeling ideas. An attractive faucet can cost a few hundred dollars, but the longstanding benefit is almost always a worthwhile investment. Not only will you enjoy your scouring chores more, but the economic savings may be worth the additional money invested.
Now that you know what type of sink and faucet you will be adding to your kitchen it’s time to choose the counter tops. If you want to add value and enjoy the convenience of cleaning too, then you may want to consider stepping up into granite counter tops. This is a project that may require you to hire a professional. You can hopefully find local contractors who specialize in these types of counter tops. The added value and beauty of granite counter tops will make your kitchen remodeling ideas a real winner.
Pots and Pans Can Make All The difference
Now if you’re looking to spice things up a bit and save some money at the same time, you may try adding some attractive pots and pans. If you have the area in your kitchen remodeling ideas for adding a center island you may want to hang these above the island. Now it’s time to put your kitchen remodeling ideas all together and have some fun.

Secret Restaurant Dessert Recipes Are A Sweet Find

Click Here!






Did you know that some of the hardest restaurant recipes to obtain are those for desserts? It's true.
The big chain restaurants spend time and money creating special "signature" dessert treats. In many cases they invest more in coming up with a new twist on a gooey double-fudge ice cream cake than they do in figuring out more ways to dress up their hamburgers. It just makes economic sense.
Loyal patrons of a given restaurant may really like the hamburgers, or the pasta, but it's those sinful desserts that often draw them back, meal after meal. Truly, a magnificent dessert can be the most addictive item on the menu.
That's why, as I've discovered through my own research, getting a recipe for a restaurant's top dessert item can be extremely difficult. But remember, it is just a recipe, after all--a list of ingredients plus instructions on how to put them together.
As I've written previously, the most direct way to obtain recipes for a restaurant's menu offerings--even desserts--is to ask. Often, though, you'll be politely rejected. Or, the manager might just vaguely tell you something like, "Well, it's just some vanilla ice cream and a little hot fudge and some nuts and a cherry," while leaving out important details: Whose vanilla ice cream? How is the fudge heated? Etc. Often there will be some secret ingredient that he will conveniently neglect to mention at all.
I'm grateful therefore to the many unsung heroes of the Internet who have done the detective work to discover the exact recipes used to create some of the most mouth-watering restaurant desserts in America--and who have shared them with the world.
If your favorite restaurant serves up an especially tempting dessert that you're just dying to get the recipe for, chances are you can find it on the Web. You just need to put your best search skills to work and be persistent. Someone out there has it--and has either posted it for free on some chat board or has put it into an inexpensive e-book along with other so-called top-secret recipes.
This is the information age, after all. And really, what more crucial information is there to us foodies than the knowledge to duplicate our favorite sinful desserts right in our own kitchens?

French Country Kitchen Decorating
By Kathy Burns-Millyard

When designing a kitchen, most people focus tightly on organization and efficiency. While those truly are important considerations, don't forget to give your kitchen a personality as well as functionality. One classic kitchen decorating theme is the French country look.
A French country kitchen makes you feel as if you have just walked into a cottage in rural France. Such a kitchen reflects a joy of living and importance of family and friends. Whether you live in a high-rise urban condominium or a split-level in the suburbs, you can bring the warmth and beauty of the French countryside to your own kitchen. The combination of many small touches is what gives a French country kitchen its vibrant, romantic feel.
Color plays a major role in a French country kitchen. If you stepped into the kitchen of a French country cottage, you would probably find walls painted either a butter or mustard yellow, with cupboards painted cornflower blue or even salmon pink. Of course, you could choose to make your walls blue and use the lighter shades as accents.
In the country kitchens of France, natural light is part of the decor. Window dressings are often simple - Roman shades.Fabric choices range from canvas to toile, solid to stripped or even prints of fruits, vegetables, or herbs. Speaking of herbs, one simple French country detail is the presence of lavender. Hang a bunch of dried lavender from a hook on the ceiling or the wall, or stand a clump in a wall vase, and you'll bring the scent of the French countryside into your kitchen.
Accessories for a French country kitchen are almost always functional. A tall terra cotta or copper vase serves as countertop storage for spatulas and other cooking utensils. Open, freestanding racks made of copper or wrought iron hold plants as well as placemats, napkins, and serving bowls. Ceramic with rooster or herb designs can be displayed on walls when not in use on the table.
A plain, pine work table doubles as a place for family and friends to gather for meals or simply to socialize. Be sure to choose a size table that won't interrupt the traffic flow in your kitchen. If you have a very small galley style kitchen, you might want to skip this element. In the kitchen, the difference between cramped and cozy is enough to ruin any mood.
Since French country kitchens are small by nature, their owners make the best use of every possible space. Instead of traditional cabinets they often opt for vertical storage. Wrought iron ceiling racks keep frequently used pots and pans handy. Pot racks are very popular in kitchens around the world, and are therefore easy to find. In fact, you'll be surprised at the wide range of styles and sizes available. You can achieve the French country look even if your kitchen doesn't lend itself to an overhead pot rack. Strong hooks on the wall or on a solid core door will give save cabinet space and add to the country feel of your kitchen.
