We’re all getting hot with our kitchens these days. Just tryin’ to follow the NOLA schedule of starting with red beans and rice on Monday was enough of a weekly commitment. But now, it’s every day.

And because I love my kitchen more than ever, here are some ways that you can show off how stylish you are to your virtual cooking clubs.
