Oh that looks awesome! The cabinets, the ovens ... and especially the corn bread.

We had our thanksgiving last month in Canada and I'm on my pre-Christmas diet now which totally sucks. The thought of those mashed sweet potatoes is totally making me drool. Damn diet! Do they have lots of butter? And brown sugar? Yuuummmmmm. I can smell them from here.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, congrats on the ovens, and enjoy your day tomorrow. :-)

The fridge still has plastic on it b/c it isn't set in right yet. Have to pull out again for water line.

Lights are a bit crooked still- not done being adjusted. Seeing how the height works..

The Mashed Sweet Potatoes are an Emeril recipe we LOVE! Instead of putting them in the orange cups I just just put it in a 9 x 13 pan.
Sometimes I omit the brandy and just drink it while baking! lol

Brandy and Orange-Mashed Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups
Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2001

Prep Time:20 minInactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time:40 min
Level:
Intermediate
Serves:
8 servings

Ingredients
7 large sweet potatoes, about 3 pounds
4 large oranges
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 large eggs
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup brandy
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let rest until just cool enough to handle.

Lower the oven to 350 degrees F.

Make the orange cups by cutting the oranges in half and scooping out the pulp, leaving only the shell. Set aside.

While still somewhat hot, peel the potatoes and place in a large bowl. Discard the skins and tough, stringy fibers. Add the butter, and with an electric mixer, beat out the lumps. Add the sugar, eggs, orange juice, heavy cream, and brandy, and mix until smooth. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, and mix well. Re-season, to taste.

Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the orange cups, mounding and smoothing the top. Bake until puffed and slightly golden, about 20 minutes.

Wow, the kitchen looks absolutely beautiful!!! Awesome job...can't wait to see it all finished!

RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

TY 2Littlefishies. I look so forward to your reveal !

About your space...

Beyond the fridge and dbl window to the back wall where it looks like there are some more built-ins, is this the add'l 12.5 x 16.5 dining space? I would love to see what you do here and how it connects to your kitchen. I am considering adding sq ftg to the back of my kitchen but don't know what it would like.

Hope you are having a wonderful day after TG !


 o
RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

go figure- yes, Beyond the fridge is the additional 12.5 x 16.5 dining space. It one big room separated just by a ceiling beam. In between the 2 built ins will be a bench for the dining table.

The built in on the right is organizational area and the one on the right is a little bar space (no sink) with refrigerator drawers.

OverheadView

The space in Front of the dining room is our LR. We are in a small Cape Cod and didn't have much space and so we added 7' to the back of the house and took down some walls, & moved the basement stairs over.

The wall by the stairs changed a little but here is our plan... The dotted lines are walls that came down.

Untitled

In between our LR and DR will be 12' of glass french doors as we want to be able to close off the 2 spaces now and then.

RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

TY so much for posting the layout for me.
I have been going nuts working on our layout.
I can extend beyond our kitchen to at least 20ft and 6ft at the side. But wanting to REALLY think it thru - (and havent gotten there yet!) and be smart w/the layout.

Cant TY enough for responding. :)

RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

taggie- LOL. Listen, I have gained 10 pounds since starting this renovation. I should be joining you!!! I really thought I'd lose weight but I guess the eating out since July and lots of fast/frozen food isn't such a great idea for me! : (


 o
RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

Your kitchen is looking really great, Fishies!


 o
RE: We got ovens and a fridge today!

Fishies--
I gained much more than that after the kitchen was completed. I blame my ovens.


 o
