    Hi Gaby! You are such an inspiration to watch! I love your recipes. I watched you last night prepare those great enchiladas & you mentioned that you wanted to remodel your kitchen & would like to know of a good contractor. I remodeled my kitchen 3 years ago with a highly competent & wonderful design build company. I would highly recommend them to you. There name is HartmanBaldwin. They are a design & build company. There phone # 909-670-1345. They have offices in Claremont & Pasadena. I live in La Verne. I know you live in the valley, but I think they go everywhere. They remodeled Shanda Rhimes’s home.
    You can find them on Facebook, YouTube, etc. They have workshops & do webinars. They have one coming up on July 9th. If you would like to see my kitchen….before & after…..they did a presentation on YouTube. My project is called, The Mansion Ct. Residence. So you can see the actual transformation of my kitchen.
    They are an extremely professional & ethical company to work with. Not to mention a really great group of people to work with.
    Anyway, I hope that helps you & let me know if you viewed my kitchen remodel on YouTube!
    Looking forward to following you!
    Warmest regards,
    Jeanne Bartel
