In my Kitchen: Debby from Inspired Design

One of my very very fav ladies is here today to present her kitchen, cooking habits and a favourite recipe. Please welcome Debby and her beautiful kitchen. Also, big thank you to all for embracing this new series with the warmth you did, means so much to me!

Hi, it's Debby from Inspired Design and I am thrilled to part of this fun new series
that the always adorable Helena thought up.  On an ordinary week I cook most 
nights and we will get take out or go out to dinner 1-2 a week. 
Being Mom to two busy teens and having a hubby that travels, I'm never quite
sure who is going to be home on any given night. It requires some planning to make
sure that there is always something that can be warmed up should someone stroll 
in hungry.
I cook for:  There are four of us and two little dogs always hoping for something to
magically drop in their direction.
Healthy food:  Fuji apple or spinach salad.
Indulgence:  Ice cream or chocolate. My sweet tooth always wins.
Weekend meal:  The kids usually have friends so that means take out pizza or anything grilled.
Date dinner:  Eggplant parmesean at Boston's North End.
Quick fix:  Sandwiches... good rolls, fresh vegetables, meats & cheeses... easy.
Spicy:  Red pepper flakes
Mild:  Basil

In My Kitchen:
Favorite gadget:  Red Cuisinart Stand Mixer.
Could not live without:  A dishwasher or my Kuerig coffee maker.
My cooking bible:  Each and every cookbook by Ina Garten, (love them all).

My Recipe:
Stewed berries and ice cream:  This is such an easy a quick dessert and it makes
a lovely presentation when served in a beautiful glass or bowl.
