Dancin' with yo' mamma ...

It could have been the stovetop shuffle, water pitcher waltz or table setting tango, but every day of my youth was always a day of dancing in our kitchen. I can close my eyes and see my aproned Mom swaying with the music on the radio. Before I knew it, I was her dance partner and featured singer.

It was a tiny kitchen by today's standards, and almost identical to the photo above, but it was filled with music, laughter, dancing, love and food.  I'm guessing that must be why I equate food with happiness, and why kitchens are always my favorite room in a house.

Each time I see a dream kitchen, I wonder if it has plenty of dancing room. You see, my own children grew up in the very same way, singing and dancing in our kitchen, too.

Every one of these beauties cause me to sigh and think of how much fun they could be when my own children come to visit. How could anyone be a wallflower in these kitchens?

I'm just going to sit back and hum a few tunes while remembering Mom on this Mother's Day and look at beautiful kitchens that will serve as more inspiration for a future kitchen remodel at my house.

And, Mom, I'm thinking of you, too ... cheers to the fondest of memories! You, your great zest for life and cherished cooking are truly missed.
