My kitchen pics for 'October Blog Carnival-It's a cook's nook event'

Last week I had sent  my kitchen pics for Nupur's 'Kitchens Revealed ' event  .This week I got an invitation from Sharon  who writes a beautiful  home decor blog at http://www.thekeybunch.com/ to participate in the 'October Blog Carnival -It's a cook's nook' event  at her blog and I'm more than happy to do the same.
It's always fun to view kitchen pics and get to share new ideas  .This time around I'm also posting some of my kitchen garden pics because it is an intricate part on my kitchen and cooking too.

Here's the  link if you would like to participate

White zodiac countertops ,white cabinets ,dark walnut wood floors and SS appliances give my kitchen a very contemporary look and feel not to mention that I have to work extra hard to maintain that look :)
I knew  it would be a challenge to  go for an all white on white  kitchen especially if you use a lot of spices in your everyday cooking and cook a lot but I couldn't pass this up.


This is my KitchenAid kitchen fridge (I have one more Kitchen Aid  fridge in the adjacent room) I was  always short of freezer space so bought a second one..

Kitchen Aid 8 burner gas range with dual convection ovens makes cooking a breeze not to mention it's the star of my kitchen.

Yellow tomatoes that I grew in my backyard kitchen garden this summer

Vine ripened  red tomatoes



Watermelon which I grew meticulously  from seed but unfortunately got destroyed 2 weeks before harvest thanks to the carelessness of the workers who sprayed weed killer on it !!


Strawberries some we ate some the birds enjoyed :))I did not want to put a protective net around it as I've read sometimes their little feet get caught in it. So I let them enjoy it too.

  9. Hi Ragini,

    This is an awesome space. Loved the all-white kitchen! I almost went in for one myself, but I changed over to cream last minute, as I was worried that the excessive use of spices might make it difficult to maintain. Love how brave (and obviously hard working) you are!

    You have a walk-in pantry? Wow! and a kitchen garden too! Lovely post, and thank you for participating!
