Today, I laid down for an afternoon nap (what a luxury). My husband, Antonio, awoke me with a surprise dinner! He grilled New York strip with a homemade spicy Latin rub topped with a garlic herb butter, sauteed spinach, cheddar-stuffed grilled poblano peppers, and ripe roma tomatoes. All of this was finished with a glass of Riesling. Take a look…

Mmmmm! The steak was cooked just the way I like it – medium with a hot pink center. For Christmas, Antonio and I treated each other to the “Outdoor Gourmet” gas grill. It’s so nice – lot of storage, four burners, a granite countertop, and a side burner. We’ve been using this bad boy every week, grilling the most delicious meals!

We love entertaining so the gas grill is a perfect addition to our newly renovated kitchen. Here’s a pic…

This is a picture of my red wall… Red is my favorite color and I’ve always wanted to have a red wall in my house. It’s so SPICY! Studies show that red stimulates appetite so it’s a perfect color for the kitchen. The kitchen table is configured to seat six but we have a leaf that enlarges it to comfortably seat eight with plenty of space in the middle for food!

The other feature I love about this kitchen is the tile backsplash I designed.

It’s not a huge kitchen but it’s tricked out with some cool features such as Cherry cabinets, the Quartz countertop (better than granite – never needs sealing and contains Microban), a tilt-out to hide the sponges, a pull-out spice rack, and anti-slam drawers that glide to a smooth close. It’s a little dream kitchen but it’s my dream kitchen. 🙂

So if you’re ready for cuisine thats “yummy in your tummy,” come and visit us in New Orleans! We’ll treat you to Southern hospitality and fabulous food with our indoor and outdoor kitchens!

Warmly, Dianne
