  • Easy Clean Up

    I’m fanatical about keeping my sink clear,” says Linda. “I actually have two dishwashers, which makes cleanup so easy, especially after a party. I am undone by clutter, so I load them right after meals.”

  • Self-Serve Breakfast Bar

    I have a cabinet by the refrigerator that holds a toaster oven, cereal, bowls, and juice glasses. My breakfast is two cups of Twinings English Breakfast tea. I use an old saucepan that belonged to my mother to boil water. Teakettles scare me—you never know how clean they are inside!”

  • Secret Ingredients

    I had a delicious arugula salad at Alchemy on Martha’s Vineyard a few years ago, and I loved it so much that I experimented with ingredients until I made my own close-enough version. Now I prepare it almost every night. My granddaughter, Madison lives five minutes away, so she often pops over to help.”

  • Not Just for Display

    The china cabinet is my pride and joy. It looks so pretty with those X’s on the front, but trust me, it’s not pristine or perfect. I use everything in it all the time. And the counter-height ledge is deep enough [10 inches] to rest things on as I take them in and out for serving.” Bonus: Roll-out shelves mean no fumbling to find things way in back.

  • Strategic Spending

    My marble countertops were worth the splurge! Nothing else would have achieved the buttoned-up look I wanted. Don’t tell anyone, but I clean them with anything I have on hand!” Fun detail: That round thing above the stove is an exhaust fan. Cool, huh?
