Designing a Kitchen for Entertaining

Many of our Wood Palace Kitchens clients like to entertain.  And where is it that you think most of the guests end up hanging out?  The kitchen,  of course. So if that’s what you like to do,  then if you’re thinking of remodeling your kitchen, there are some things to consider.  I found a great article on HGTV.com that gives you some great questions to ask yourself,  such as: What kind of events do you host (casual,  formal,  buffet,  sit-down, etc)? How many people do you generally entertain at one time? How do you serve food? Do guests serve themselves…

Healthy Breakfast – Banana Trees

I love hearing stories from my customers about the experiences they’re having in their newly remodeled kitchens.  Most of those stories involve cooking,  family and entertaining.  That’s why I like to share recipes from time to time. My friend and nutritionist Nicole Cormier has some great healthy recipes.  Here’s one that’s also fun,  so great for getting kids to eat healthy in the morning,  or even for a healthy snack. Banana Trees Ingredients: 1 Joseph’s Brand Lavash Roll-up 1 Large Banana 1 TB of Sunbutter or Natural Peanut Butter Optional: 1 tsp 100% Organic Honey Instructions: Spread Sunbutter on one end…

We’re always looking at what’s new in kitchen appliances to help our customers enhance the experience of their newly remodeled kitchen. Thermador recently released its new Masterpiece™ Series Steam and Convection Oven. This is a stroke of genius.  It can be used as a straight convection oven for baking,  a steamer for vegetables and seafood,  or a combination of both for things like turkey.  How would you like to have your Thanksgiving turkey done in less than two hours, and have it stay moist, without any basting?  That’s what this new oven will do! You can even steam vegetables and…

An Interior Designer Helps Make a Room Look Finished

I don’t think the average homeowner understands what an interior designer really does.  Similar to using a kitchen designer,  homeowners feel that they can “do it themselves”. I just spoke with a landlord this week who is doing an apartment over before a new tenant moves in.  He is doing most of the work himself,  but had a carpenter helping him re-configure the kitchen area and the adjacent bedroom,  adding a closet.  But the measurements were off.  As a result,  he’s only going to be able to fit a small apartment sized oven into the kitchen instead of a standard sized oven.  He…

Honey Soy Grilled Salmon with Edamame

We’re well in to spring,  and most of us are thinking about whether we’re in shape for bathing suit season!  I try to eat healthy all year ’round,  but it seems like springtime brings with it tons of healthy,  lighter recipes. Especially if you’ve recently had your kitchen remodeled,  you probably want to spend more time cooking.  My clients find that a new kitchen is much more conducive to cooking,  even after a long day. If you like salmon, this recipe from Food Network is a winner. The natural richness of salmon and it’s high amount of Omega-3’s makes it…

May Day

Happy May Day! I was curious about just what May Day is,  because these days,  it seems to pass by without any ceremony.  The only reason I even paid attention is because I had to write “May” instead of “April” on my checks! According to infoplease.com: “May 1st,  often called May Day,  just might have more holidays  than any other day of the year.  It’s a celebration of Spring. It’s a day of  political protests.  It’s a neopagan festival,  a saint’s feast day,  and a day for  organized labor.  In many countries,  it is a national holiday.” The day has…
