Glazed horses or ceramic foo dogs rarely find a place in the kitchen, but it's one room where they could potentially be used the most. Many Betty Crocker wannabes depend on a library of texts to get them through simmering, boiling, and roasting, but few have the space for the volumes of Rachael Ray magazines or Julia Child cookbooks in their quaint kitchenettes. When less is more, keep a few of the most important (or prettiest) cooking how-tos on your counter with a pair of wine bottles as bookends. It will keep the countertop organized and the most important reads at a foodie's fingertip's reach.
