    I am impressed by your writing skills and expressing your life events.We are glad that you are happy with designing the kitchen and make your dream come true.
    I remember that you single handedly shopped around and baught things to remodel while your sister and kids came to stay with you for few days.It was inconvenient Then.I wondered about your decision to remodel the kitchen during that time.
    But it eventually turned out to be place that you are very proud of.Iam surprised that you kept pictures of the old kitchen also and I can see that all the hardship you went thru then and it is all
    worth it.
    Your blog is becoming like a autobiography and you are expressing your life events in a very unique and impressive way.
    You have a excellent writing skill.
    Good luck and very Best

    The in-stock cabinet pieces from Lowes and Home Depot match really well. Did they both carry the same line of cabinets or did you just do a good job matching them? What a change from the before to after!

    Hi Selvi! Wow, you were super perceptive and right on point noticing that I bought those pieces from different stores as I mentioned in the article!!! The pull-out spice rack is a unit I bought from Lowes. The Corner Lazy Susan unit is a full cabinet piece that I bought from Home Depot. All my cabinet pieces were purchased at Home Depot. You can buy panels that match your cabinet pieces as well as other fillers that match your pieces. My handyman and I worked to attach the panel to the pull-out spice rack unit to create a full piece and fillers to customize the gaps between the cabinet pieces. It was a fun, awesome, challenging, and creative experience that I thoroughly enjoyed!!:D I hope this helps answer your question.

  • Hey Valli,
    Love your page, recipes and attitude toward food.
    It’s been a pleasure corresponding, and wish we were not a continent apart, as we could certainly cook up a storm together.
    Please check out my products at , and
    Same attitude, great ingredients, all natural, and convenient, freezer to oven.
    The Triple Ginger biscuit makes a great shortcake for Mangoes, pineapple, and or banana shortcake with banana whipped cream.
    The double chocolate, with raspberries.
    They also make great waffles, and dumplings.

    Ask nice, and I’ll tell you how to make them.
    My best,
