I've been wanting a kitchen computer for a long time. I have a Macbook, and every time I bring it into the kitchen my skin crawls,because I am so worried about spilling something on it.
My husband, Grant, was able to get this old Gateway from his work for $100. He painted it red for me, fabricated a wall mount, and just yesterday he finally hung it and I've put all of my recipes on it.
We'll clean up the cords and everything, but I couldn't wait to start using it. The first thing I made using it - Snickerdoodles! They are Grant's favorite cookies, and I figured it would be fitting.
On the cooking agenda this week:
• Avocado Butter
• Pesto Lasagna
• Dandelion Bread
• Apple Pie
Wow, thank you Susan for sharing! This looks great. A long time ago I lived with a family who had also done this: rigged up a computer with a small screen in the kitchen, designated just for recipes and grocery lists. If you use online recipes or keep your shopping lists in a more electronic way, it is indeed useful to have a designated computer for the kitchen — no more worries about flour in your laptop keyboard.
Do you have a computer in the kitchen?
