Elizabeth Falkner

Okay, I am a huge fan of Iron Chef America, so of course I am addicted to The Next Iron Chef.  Now we are down to the last two and I am definitely team Falkner!

Yeah, they all thought just because she is a well known pastry chef that she would be a push over.  Especially that Jeffery Zakarian, who was still talking smack and being belittling after she whipped everybody else’s booties.

Good luck Chef Falkner!  I sure am looking forward to you being The Next Iron Chef!

The Kitchen

Putting  together your perfect wardrobe and being meticulous about how you present to the world is not the only requisite of being a successful Dandi.  Your home is also an extension of who you are and it is a way for you to give beauty and warmth to your guests as well as have a wonderful place to unwind and recharge.

The kitchen is the heart of any home and the place where great memories are made and last for a lifetime.  The perfect Dandi kitchen expresses its taste in the decor as well as in the food.  Dare to be bold with materials and colors and even in the furnishings that you choose.

Bold color use, like on the black floor and cabinets shown here, make an incredibly exciting statement.  It projects a masculine feel yet is still inviting and warm.  Kitchens are a place of pure creative expression so don’t settle for what was there when you moved in, make every room in your home your own.
