Can anyone tell me what this flower is?
It is blooming in my kitchen and I have no idea what it is.

From a reader:
From the photo it appears that the flower in question is called by the name ‘Red Lion’ (cultivar) of the Hippeastrum (genius) belonging to Amaryllidaceae (family). Although I might be mistaken, the flower is not an Amaryllis, which would be the prevailing opinion. The reason for the error is all to do with marketing and sales. It is quite common to find specimens of Hippeastrum labeled as Amaryllis primarily because of a common family name (Amaryllidaceae). Nomenclature meets main street marketing and the masses suffer. A true Amaryllis is a glorious sight in bleak winter.
