Small kitchens

I always loved to have a huge kitchen, with an island, stools, two sinks, lots and lots of cabinets…right? Well i haven’t been so lucky yet, maybe one day!

I have had a medium kitchen, then a tiny kitchen that i loved, all gray and industrial looking, and here in Montreal i have an average kitchen that my husband and i repainted in dark gray a couple of years ago, accented with chrome appliances and open shelves.

I truly believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home, where secrets are whispered, dramas unfold, laughter and celebration happen. And i realized that the size of the room doesn’t matter. Big or small, it’s still the heart of your home.

I have cooked more in my tiny kitchen than in all the other ones! Women are very resourceful, we make amazing things in any kitchen, agree?

Here are some examples of small sized kitchen that you will love!


Color is always good. A bright color can add zest to any space!


Lower cabinets in dark gray and open shelving in white gives the impression of a wider space..


A tiny space, lovely floors, and cabinets from top to bottom..


An all white kitchen accentuated with splashes of colors, and a wallpapered backsplash..

What is your kitchen like?

Left over Pasta sauce?



The beauty of the Mediterranean diet is its versatility.

Imagine you cooked a big pot of pasta sauce and have a jar full in your freezer. What to do with it other than eat the same dish twice?

Pasta sauces, like tomato sauce, pesto sauce, or any kind of sauce really, would work well in any dish.

I use a lot of my pesto sauce in salads, even with grilled meat, over potatoes, grilled peppers or mushrooms…

As for the tomato sauce, use it over hot cooked white beans, a plate of brown or white rice, add some blanched asparagus, and there you have it, a new healthy dish ready in minutes!

There are no limits to what you can do with pasta sauce!

What about you, what do you do with your leftover sauce?
