Celeb Kitchens 2 & A Blogger Luncheon

Good morning, dear friends!  We had a whirlwind of a weekend.  Not only did I attend one Christmas fair, I made it to two!!  The weather was crisp and sunny; perfect shopping weather.

Last week, I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with one of my favorite bloggers, Mo, of  the fabulous blog Mocadeaux, along with one of my favorite readers, Denise.  From the minute we sat down until we left 3 hours later, there wasn't a pause in our conversation.  Love these ladies.

Mo, moi, and Denise

Here is Part 2 of my celebrity kitchen series. 

Looks like a great family kitchen.

Michael J. Fox

Those floors look sleek enough to play hockey on.

Wayne Gretzky

Rumor has it that Jimmy loves to cook and entertain.  Great kitchen for it.  

Jimmy Kimmel

Would never have guessed that this is Lady Gaga's.  I would have paired her with Giada's and Giada with this one. 

Lady Gaga

I wonder where Dexter keeps his knives.

Michael C. Hall

Love this warm space.

Brooke Shields

Definitely looks like her.

Diane Keaton

Yup, looks like him.

Nate Burkus

A little modern for my taste.  But heck, what do I know.  I don't cook or look like her, either.



Will Ferrell

It's squeaky clean because she probably never uses it.

Heidi Klum

My favorite.  Looks like the quintessential Connecticut kitchen.

Joan Rivers

Stay warm!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. What fun getting to meet up with Mo, love her!! Great kitchen round up. Yes, would have totally switched Lady Gaga and Giada.

  3. Oh, how I would have loved to have joined you for that lunch! I'm loving Mo's blog and so happy I discovered her through your blog!
    Now, I'm going to get busy arranging my kitchen to look like Brook Shield's.

  4. Someday I want to be the 3rd place setting in a lunch with you and Mo! So much FOMO as my daughter and her friends would say :-)

  5. Joan River's ultra-traditional kitchen is the most memorable IMO. I've never seen antique oil portraits with picture lights in a kitchen. Katie, before hanging your new (Salem) oil portrait in the foyer, did you consider a spot in your kitchen? [Seems like "an American man" needs a mail-order bride.] ~Paige

  6. Oh my - by far Joan Rivers had flair and warmth and personality. Most of them I wouldn't have been able to pick whose was whose! Looks like you had a fabulous time with blogging buddies!

  7. LOVE Joan Rivers kitchen, so full of charm and it so warm and cozy...I can imagine being in there on a cold snowy day cooking up a storm...Wayne's is pretty amazing too.
    Isn't it fun meeting up with new friends/bloggers? So great how it brings so many together!

  8. I think I like Gilda's - room to enjoy guests and still cook!

  9. So fun...glad you gals could catch your breath. I miss going to lunch more often with friends...need to make a date with my friends.

  10. Lunch was terrific! Please note THAT camera added multiple pounds and wrinkles!
    Oddly enough I don't care for any of the kitchens posted. I LOVE what you did to yours.
    Lastly, we need to plan a lunch with Beemie if and when she ventures up this way this summer.

  11. My personal favorite is Wayne Gretzky's! Loved seeing them all though.


  12. Sounds like a fun lunch! I can't believe I have the same taste as Lady Gaga...

  13. Okay I either need a new kitchen or a anew house! Love Mo she is the wine lady!

  14. Don't you just love that the kitchens "look" like their owners? How fun to get to meet blog friends…looks like a wonderful lunch!

  15. Lunch was a blast! I'm looking forward to seeing more of you gals since I'll be here hanging with the new grandson!
    Michael J. Fox's kitchen looks a lot like the kitchen on his latest TV show...probably not a coincidence. I think Wayne Gretzky's is my favorite but I have to say that if someone knocked on my door offering a complete kitchen remodel, complete with building the giant house to fit it in, I'd take any of those shown.

  16. Your blogger lunch looks like so much fun Katie! These kitchens are fabulous. I like your commentary on which seem to match. I totally agree, Heidi Klum's is just for looks. I doubt she cooks or eats much. Really fun pics.
    xx, Heather
