My Home Inside My Home

Life According to Jan and Jer are our Fun Monday hosts for the week. And well they say --

As your hostess this week...here is what I dreamed up! The big question is ....What is the favorite room in your home? Tell us why and show us a photo if you can.


I am guessing most people would say it's their bedroom, but well not for Mariposa. I am rarely in my bedroom when I am home! LOL

The past months, I've been spending most of my time at the kitchen. Lately I find myself baking some cakes or pastries or just trying out some new recipes. This is something new but I am seeing this to last very long.

This is the snapshot of the small kitchen where I always bake the famous Mariposa's Lengua de Gato and Banana cake. I say famous because lately I've been getting huge orders and more than the money I am making I am enjoying the feeling of it, SO MUCH!

This was before the repainting project...I apologize I don't have  a very recent photo as I just got back from a trip and is recovering from flu.



Just when the IT Guy was ready to take a shot, the nephew came running to make sure he joins in the photo shoot! LOL

Next photo shows Mariposa and the nephew more settled! I am having such a good relationship with this cute oven of mine! It doesn't eat space, it serves my need and is very gas efficient.




My next favorite part of the house is not really a room, it's the garden! I LOVE staring at the greens and I love tending the plants.

 

In the garden is also where I play with the nephew! IT Guy and I spend some of our lazy Sunday afternoon here playing with the nephew.

 

And that's it for my Fun Monday post, you just have my home inside my home. Let me head over to our hosts to check what the others have...

I wish all you a great week!

Lengua de Gato cake? We want details Mariposa! If you're into baking these days I've been trying some recipes from this young blogger: Joy the Baker
Both pretty looking and yummy--right up your alley! Does that little munchkin nephew get to help you bake?

I like big kitchens to sit in, but not to cook, lol !
Important is that you feel well in there and you apparently love to bake and cook !

I love the new color scheme of your kitchen.
And your nephew is so adorable.

Now, I would have to agree with you there ---in the garden. It too is beautiful, and I'd be spending my time outdoors in that special 'room' as you do!

When you redid your kitchen, what did you do to it? I love the little stove/oven. If it weren't for having large and growing people to live with, I believe I would be downsizing my surroundings. I'm already planning on putting in a European vanity in one of my bathrooms because it is so much smaller than those honkin' big American ones!
