Have you been neglecting your kitchen? Carve some time out of your busy schedule, rethink that takeout menu, and set a date with your kitchen. Whether your kitchen is big or small, old or new, invest some quality time with a recipe you’ve been dying to try out, like this two-day sauce.

If you got mostly Cs … your kitchen’s love language is words of affirmation!

It’s important to stop and take inventory of what you have to be grateful for, what you can let go of, and what you aspire towards. Your kitchen is no exception to this rule! Try making a list of things you do and don’t like about your kitchen. Take time to appreciate what you like about it, and start making a plan to improve the things you don’t. This exercise will serve to make both you and your kitchen happier and healthier!

If you got mostly Ds … your kitchen’s love language is acts of service!

No one ever said kitchen upkeep was easy! It takes a lot of effort and devotion to maintain a smoothly functioning kitchen, given all the work we expect out of it. Express your affection for your kitchen by tackling some more labor-intensive tasks you might normally put off, such as cleaning your oven.
