We grew up in a home where the kitchen was the heart of the house. It was where we would all come together after busy days at school and work, settle down and catch up. By no means did we have a set family dinner every evening at 7pm on the dot. Just not practical for our crazy schedules! Family meals ranged from homemade dinners in the dining room, casual meals shared at the kitchen table, or sometimes a buffet of leftovers spread across our kitchen island! Now that we have a home (er, apartment) of our own, we’ve carried those same traditions and find our favorite time is spent enjoying a meal together – no matter the setting.
