The 256 Project was recently contacted by a lovely lady named Pauli, who owns a condo in Chicago and is looking into putting up backsplash in her kitchen. Pauli asked, “What do you think about backsplashes??? I’d really like a grey, but I’m not sure if that’s out of style now. My cabinets are cherry, appliances chrome and countertop is black granite with some specs of green and silver/white in there.”
Yeah!! I love a fun project with beautiful results! And so #ProjectPauli commenced. Here is the e-design process we went through.
I recently was contacted about helping someone with a kitchen backsplash project. She said she searched for “kitchen” on The 256 Project and only got hungry thanks to all of the Kreyol Kitchen photos. What she didn’t find, though, was anything related to actual kitchen renovation projects or ideas. Which brings me to this: my first kitchen post!
One summer break during elementary school, my grandmother, my father’s mother, came from Haiti to stay with us. While she was there, my parents asked her to write down all the recipes she had memorized in a notebook. Over the course of the summer, she wrote down in her script handwriting every recipe, from marinades to desserts, she could remember. I’ve thought for a while of making every recipe in the book as a way of connecting with my grandmother and of learning more about my Haitian culinary roots. Now that we have our own house, I thought it time to start the Kreyol Kitchen. In addition to documenting how we, as first time homeowners, are tackling making our house a home, I’ll document on this blog how I tackle these recipes, from the easy to the hard, and share those recipes with you. Stay tuned for deliciousness!
