What Kind of Cook Are You? — Weekend Meditation

2013_03_04-kitchenbuddha.jpgI started to take an online quiz the other day but stopped short when it asked me what kind of cook I thought I was. My choices were something like Generous (enthusiastic and sharing), Methodical (likes long, complex kitchen projects), Innovative (goes for the new and unusual), Competitive (into impressing and being the best, having the best), Healthy (interested in freshness and nutrition). I was only allowed to pick one but what I ended up clicking on was the button to take me away from the quiz.

Faith’s Kitchen Renovation: How We Assembled & Installed Our IKEA Kitchen — Renovation Diary: Faith’s Budget Luxe Kitchen

Installing our cabinets!

Ready for the next step in my kitchen renovation? Here's where things get a little wild and fast, and where my photo library gets a little, um, thinner than I would like. I understand now why people have a hard time documenting renovations, especially near the end — you're so exhausted and ready to be done the camera is the last thing on your mind.

Having said that, I do want to walk through how we installed our IKEA cabinets. Here's a peek at the process of assembling and installing the kitchen, which we actually did ourselves with some coaching from our contractor.

Ah, the weekend. Finally. Time to kick back, relax, and cook up some good food.
