This is my favorite spot in our kitchen. This is my baking area and I spend a lot of time here. This is not even close to being my dream kitchen. My dream kitchen would have more storage and white custom cabinets that go up to the ceiling, subway tile backsplash, honed black granite counters on the perimeter and marble on the island. It would have stainless, professional style appliances, a big farm sink with a gooseneck faucet and pot filler above the stove. It would be huge but most of all it would be filled with family and friends. For now I am more than happy to spend hours in this spot baking for the people I love.
