Reveal Time Spent in the Kitchen + Giveaway!

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please see policies for more information.

Since we re-did the kitchen we have been spending A LOT more time in it. Most of the meals the boys eat here are happening on the counter. They also sit and play games while we get dinner ready or while they’re learning to make meals on their own. I’ve never put much thought into the light bulbs in the kitchen, probably because I haven’t upgraded the lighting yet.

My youngest wanted a fondue pot for Christmas and he got one with a cookbook so the boys have been begging to make fondue since then. We had a free night and decided to make it one of our date nights. We have nights where we make/eat a meal together and usually play a game or two (family date night). I figured it was a perfect time to test our new GE reveal® lights and see how much of a difference they could make in illuminating the space.

As you can see the lighting definitely did make a difference! While the boys taste tested their fondue recipe I switched out the lights and took some more photos. We ended up loving the fondue and the new lighting in the kitchen!

Family “date nights” are the best, whether it’s a simple fondue after the craziness of the day or a full on meal I just love taking it all in.

We didn’t have many ingredients for the recipes they wanted to make so we made up our own on this night: a bag of chocolate chips, some heavy cream, vanilla and cinnamon. We just melted the chocolate over a double broiler and mixed in the other ingredients as needed/to taste. Super simple but good and the boys finally got to use the fondue pot!

After fondue we played the new family favorite game “Shut the Box” which is quick, easy and fun. Everyone noticed the difference in the lighting and we can’t wait to reveal more around the home!
