Kitchen Makeover

Janice is in the process of building a studio kitchen in her home where The Meal Makeover Moms will shoot cooking videos, conduct cooking classes, and efficiently develop and test new family-friendly recipes. She will be sharing updates on this exciting construction project on our blog, Meal Makeover Moms’ Kitchen so be sure to check back often. Here are a few blog posts detailing the renovation:

In an attempt to be as ‘green’ as possible, Janice is selecting energy efficient appliances, renewable bamboo flooring, countertops made of recycled materials, and is installing 18 solar panels on her roof.

Several companies have come forward to generously donate materials and services to help make this kitchen a reality. We thank them wholeheartedly and encourage you to check them out!

Kohler offers distinctive style, an array of choices, and uncompromising performance in all their products. Janice has chosen Kohler Poise sinks and Clairette and HighRise faucets for the studio kitchen.
