This is a peek at my new kitchen. We don’t have the backsplash up yet but you can see a bit of it. :)

I’veKitchen wanted an induction cooktop for decades. Back when we built our house in 1984 after a fire I thought about getting one, but they were super pricey so I went with a regular smooth top stove. But I eyed them every now and then anyway. We just redid our kitchen, and this time I made the jump. The cooktop was only a couple hundred dollars more than a regular smooth top cooktop so that was the first thing I bought. 

If you’re considering an induction cooktop I highly recommend you make the move. Before you do, there is one thing to consider: You most likely will need new cookware. I was sure my Revere Ware copper bottom pans would work, but nope. We got that cooktop in and I had only one small skillet that would work. All the others had aluminum bottoms. Just test the bottoms of your pans with a magnet.

But this is a small price to pay for all the benefits.

1. Things cook fast. I mean FAST. The highest level of power on a burner boils water in my teakettle in just over a minute. 

2 The kitchen stays cooler.

3. Instant control. At one point I accidentally turned off the wrong burner. The boiling instantly died. I touched it to turn it back on and it was instantly boiling again. Amazing!

4. The cooktop stays cooler. It still gets hot from the hot pot but not nearly as hot as if the burner is actually on. 

5. The top cleans like a dream. There is no metal around the edge of the cooktop. It’s all glass so it wipes off easily. Things don’t burn onto the top because there’s no heat generated from a coil.

6. I love the touch controls. You just touch the glass.

7. It’s more energy efficient with no wasted heat. And faster cook time also minimizes energy use.

8. It’s just plain beautiful. :) 

So there’s my review! I will never go back to anything else now. I’m actually enjoying cooking!

A new release is always exciting! The Wishing Season is my 25th book and, I have to say, it never gets old! 

If you've been following The Chapel Springs series, this is PJ's story. If you haven't, don't worry, it's written to stand alone!

Spirited PJ McKinley has the touch when it comes to food. Her dream of opening her own restaurant is just one building short of reality. So when a Chapel Springs resident offers her beloved ancestral home to the applicant with the best plan for the house, PJ believes it’s a contest she was meant to win.
Contractor Cole Evans is confident, professional, and swoon-worthy—but this former foster kid knows his life could have turned out very differently. When Cole discovers the contest, he believes his home for foster kids in transition has found its saving grace. All he has to do is convince the owner that an out-of-towner with a not-for-profit enterprise is good for the community.
But when the eccentric philanthropist sees PJ and Cole’s proposals, she makes an unexpected decision: the pair will share the house for a year to show what their ideas are made of. Now, with Cole and the foster kids upstairs and PJ and the restaurant below, day-to-day life has turned into out-and-out competition—with some seriously flirtatious hallway encounters on the side. Turns out in this competition, it’s not just the house on the line, it’s their hearts.
