It’s been one year since we finished our white kitchen in our mountain home, our fixer upper! This is my first time to ever have a white kitchen, so the jury was out … would I like it or not?

Honestly, I love the look, but I hate the upkeep! White kitchen cupboards can get messy!

But I don’t hate it enough to not do it again. I truly do love my white kitchen.

Love and hate.

Sriracha Strawberry Spinach Salad

It reminded me of when I saw strawberries and coffee running down one of the cupboards, the night before last.

Now, for THIS amazing, classic, Sriracha Strawberry Spinach Salad. The idea and recipe has been around for decades, but this dressing?

Sriracha Strawberry Spinach Salad

KILLER! With a kick of sriracha!

The dressing makes enough for 2 salads (if you like lighter dressing).


Take a peek at my kitchen window. I want to share a deja vu moment that I had a year ago when we moved into this home.

Every time I stand in my kitchen, I picture the original owner of this house (we are the second owners in 30+ years), standing in the same place.

It brings me back to being younger and riding bikes along the path behind the house.

Often I think about prior owner Janie standing in front of the same window doing dishes. I know in my younger days, I was riding behind this very house, looking up and seeing her in this window.

Now it’s me … doing dishes, cooking up a storm, enjoying life with our 3 20-somethings home for the summer. A real blessing.

Doing dishes is not the enemy, I tell myself.

Neither is having to wipe down the white cabinets on an almost daily basis.

I’m learning not to complain. Complaining just brings people into your pity party, and it sucks the joy out of the moment.

As a mom, it’s easy to complain.

Or, just suck it up and be happy! :)

I want to be a happy person, because it’s inspiring and contagious!
