A Gourmet Setting

This month, on page 8, we talk about making a house more liveable as one ages. Dan Kory and Elaine Canning loved their Holland home, but after 18 years, it needed an update. Since Elaine is known as quite a chef, the remodel focused on their kitchen, and what a kitchen it is. Contemporary, modern and sleek, the gray and white room has all the latest in cooking and design updates as well as spacious sitting areas for dining around the island that seats eight or at a table for ten. Their appliances offer the best options for cooking for two or eighty. This is the heart of their home and party central when guests come over. With the kitchen finished, they added design touches to other rooms in the house with new flooring, paint and furniture. They continued using the same color scheme but added eclectic touches in the dining area and the great room. Bright colors in artwork and accessories finished the home to perfection. These impressive updates give the home a different and updated persona — just as the owners desired. bathroom-home-feature-mliving bedroom-home-mlivin-feature diningroom-mliving-home kitchen-mliving-home

Saucy, savory, belly-warming comfort food tastes so well, comforting., especially after a summer of fresh fruits and vegetables lightly and quickly grilled on the patio.   My first cold-weather dish this year was Beef Stroganoff.  It certainly did not
