Meet the Winners – The Culture of Living: The Inspired Kitchen Contest

Posted on

For Gaggenau, The Inspired Kitchen is a contest that pays homage to the heart of the home by inspiring design that assures, entertains, and sparks conversation. Designers were invited to put their creativity and design philosophy to the test by creating a culinary space where luxury is expressed through emotion, materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics. Each designer submitted 3-to-6 kitchen illustrations, renderings, or drawings, including three Gaggenau appliances, as well as a written narrative describing their design inspiration and appliance selection. And, in the spirit of giving back, for the first 20 entrants, Gaggenau donated $500 per submission to The James Beard Foundation—an organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America’s food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable.

The five winning designs were chosen based on creativity, originality, and functionality:

Columbus Day Sales 2020: 13 Tech, Furniture, and Kitchenware Deals To Shop This Weekend

Posted on

Columbus Day sales, unlike Labor Day sales or even Fourth of July sales, aren’t really a thing. If you consider it for a second—and remind yourself that Christopher Columbus was a monster who didn’t discover anything—you realize Columbus Day shouldn’t really even be a holiday. This year’s “holiday,” which we will now only refer to as Indigenous Peoples Day, is even stranger, thanks to its proximity to a delayed Amazon Prime Day. The mega-retailer will flex its muscle with an onslaught of discounts literally the day after the occasion. Based on our initial scans, it seems like most of the other tech and home goods retailers are holding their sale cards close to the chest, waiting to unleash their best deals until Prime Day begins in earnest. But for now, there’s still some decent price drops available on a range of gear, especially home tech and furniture upgrades. Here’s some

Man arrested in separate Winter Garden shootings planned to kill again, cops say

Posted on

Winter Garden police on Friday arrested a 24-year-old man they say was responsible for two shootings, including one that killed another man earlier this week.

Phillip Alonte Stalnaker is facing charges of first-degree murder from a shooting earlier this week and attempted murder stemming from a Sept. 20 shooting, said Winter Garden Capt. Scott Allen.

Allen said Stalnaker also is a suspect in a fatal shooting from Wednesday that left 60-year-old Jose Manuel Clas Gonzalez dead. Police were called around 8:42 a.m. to a home in the 1000 block of Lincoln Terrace. Officers started CPR and paramedics took him to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he died, Allen said.

Gonzalez was apparently being robbed and a fight ensued, leading to the shooting.

Stalnaker was arrested shortly after 2 p.m. Officers found a gun they believe he used in both shootings, Allen said.

“Investigators interviewed Stalnaker and he admitted to

More time at home means more opportunity for you to design your personal kitchen, bath :: WRAL.com

Posted on

Every year we consider the colors and styles homeowners are gravitating towards when personalizing their new home kitchen and baths. The 2020 season, more so than ever, has given us the most poignant glimpse into how everyday living can affect our design choices. 

The global pandemic we continue to experience has resulted in families spending more time at home, altering both their needs and wants with regards to aesthetics, technology, innovative design options and energy-saving features.  

Buyers may have also found a little extra time to spend on Pinterest or watching HGTV to get inspired on the design of their new home.

“I have buyers that come in after months of being stuck at home with social distancing/COVID restrictions and they have learned what they don’t like,” said Rachel Anne Phelps, design consultant for Drees Homes.  “Through staying home,

Putting your Colorado garden to bed for the winter

Posted on

Autumn weather so far is resembling summer, other than the brief cold snap last month.

Along with recent 80-degree days, there are dangerous fires still burning in parts of the state. The city of Fort Collins is on water restrictions because of drought, the Cameron Peak fire and the maintenance project on the Horsetooth Reservoir.

Next week, temperatures should cool to the 60s with little to no moisture relief in sight.

Will sweater and parka weather arrive soon? Your guess is as good as mine. It is Colorado, after all, and winter can arrive any minute, impolitely skipping a gradual cool-wet fall season that gardeners and landscape plants prefer.

Let’s all make the best of it: Get some exercise outside on these beautiful October days and put the landscape to bed properly.

Water

Our landscapes are dry. We’ve had only one moisture-producing storm of late along the Front Range. (You

CapFed Best News: Jong’s Thai Kitchen opens with customers’ needs in mind – News – The Topeka Capital-Journal

Posted on

Banjong Jongthep has always dreamed of owning her own restaurant. After working at Tuptim Thai and co-owning A-Hann Thai, she has branched out and decided to run her own kitchen.

JongThep, along with co-owners Nimm and Derek Ragsdale, has opened Jong’s Thai Kitchen at 800 S.W. 12th St. Many will recognize the Thai restaurant’s new home as the former location of Cafe Holliday and, for a short time after that, La Casita Cafe.

While small inside, the restaurant offers customers a warm and inviting feel. Large windows at the front of the restaurant are framed by trees and offer a nice view of the park located across the street.

The restaurant, which opened Sept. 21, specializes in Thai dishes that are handcrafted by Jongthep herself.

Jong’s Thai Kitchen is open 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
