Anyone who knows me, knows that I spend a LOT of time in my kitchen. After all, I am a recipe blogger, and I test every recipe before I share it with my readers. Sundays especially are "heavy" kitchen days for me as I try to prepare meals, snacks, etc in advance of the upcoming school and work week. My family spends a lot of time in the kitchen too - whether it is eating meals together or doing homework or playing games at the table, I would say the kitchen is the most used room in our house.
Lucky for me, I have a kitchen that I am happy with. It is a decent size with good counter space - always a plus for us (messy) cooks! The eating area has a huge 8-seater table and the area has 4 large windows and a (windowed) door to outside to the back patio and back yard - which means that I have a bright kitchen and I can see my kids as I work in the kitchen and as they play in the yard. It was a big selling feature for us when we bought our home, and we have been happy with it.
Of course there are things that I would like to change about my kitchen - I would like a more open concept style into our living/play room, as sometimes I feel closed off from everyone if I am in the kitchen and they are all in the living/play room. That might be a reno for us once kids toys are gone (otherwise those toys would be all over the kitchen). We like to entertain, but I don't feel like our current kitchen is a true "entertainer's kitchen". And I would really like a new stove. I would love one with a double oven and convection. I had a convection oven in our last house that I miss. I feel that our cabinets are a little outdated, but they are in such good shape that I could never justify tearing them out "just because". I'd also love a built in cleaner...to clean up after all my cooking and baking messes! LOL
Fortunately for us, I do have help in the cleaning department - we have Finish Quantum in our house. We switched to the Finish line of products a while back now, and have never looked back. We have always been happy with the quality of clean that we get from Finish Quantum.
