Picture this…a glass of red wine rests on the granite counter next to a plate filled with piping hot appys. Women’s laughter fills the air, and our souls are fed as we connect with friends during our monthly wine book club gathering. As usual, the kitchen is the heart of the home! Whether it’s a social gathering, family holiday, or daily mealtime, without a doubt the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the home. Because of its frequent use, a kitchen can easily become cluttered and disorganized.

Also, because I know you likely don’t have much time, I’ve found short videos. Most of the videos are around 5 minutes, and all are less than 10 minutes!!!
