In my Kitchen: Adrienne from Dream Book Design

Some time ago I shared a small home tour of Adrienne's home. Remember? That beauty that Adrienne and her husband mostly built themselves? I purposely left the kitchen out as i wanted to share it here in the In My Kitchen and I'm glad I did as it's as beautiful as the rest of the house of Dream Book Design. Enjoy! 

Eat in or out: If I have the right ingredients at home, definitely eat in. I love to cook, I feel like I enjoy the meal so much more knowing exactly how it was prepared, and as weird as it may sound..cooking is super soothing to me. Although, I would never turn down an invitation to a great steak house.
Take away or restaurant: If I leave my house to eat food, I definitely eat there. Who likes doing dishes?! 
I cook for: My hubby J and I. And I cant believe i'm admitting this, but right now I am actually cooking green beans for one of my dogs as part of her diet. I NEVER thought I would be one of those people, but now I am. Thats embarrassing! 
Healthy food: I can honestly say I love eating salads. I have a salad almost everyday for lunch. But really, I also enjoy pretty much anything healthy 
Indulgence: To name a few-icecream, brownies, sour candy, beer, wine..the list goes on:)
Weekend Meal: homemade pizza or chili 
Date Dinner: We go to a local brewery called Four Peaks almost every weekend and order a quesadilla and a steak sandwich and salad and split it all. Super fatty and super delicious;) 
Quick fix: Tuna melt, Chicken and rice with Amino Acid {healthy substitute for soy sauce}, or salad 
My must ingredients: Garlic, Onion, some sort of meat, and any and all cheese 
Spicy or Mild: I used to be a wimp, and then I married J. He taught me how to appreciate spicy foods, which really means, I no longer had an option to be a wimp because he likes everything spicy! 
My kitchen is: The only part of our house that wasn't done by us! Other than that its a light, loft-style, comfortable place that I adore. 
Favorite gadget(s): My kitchen-aid, Magic bullet, and my crockpot. 
In the kitchen, I couldn't leave without: My open floor plan. Our old kitchen was super closed off, and now when the remodel it makes it a fantastic space for having get-togethers 

My recipe: This is P-dubs {aka Pioneer Woman} amazing simple enchilada recipe, its too good to be true.  (Recipe here and see Adrienne enjoying it in her cooking club).
