My Dream Kitchen

While talking to some other mom's about cooking a few weeks ago, I admitted that if I would love to have someone watch my kids for me so that I could focus on cooking dinner every night. I really like to cook, and I like to cook nice meals and I want to learn to cook even better meals. I have also been day dreaming about what I would love in a kitchen. Maybe one day I will actually have counter space. I think a dream kitchen is not too much to ask for, especially if we have as many kids as we talk about having.

The Elements:

1) Children old enough to wash the dishes.
2) Children old enough to watch the younger ones while I cook.
3) Lots of counter space and an island to work on.
4) A six burner gas stove. I have only used gas at my mother-in-laws, but I know it is superior when it comes to cooking good food and want to learn how to use one.
5) Two ovens. I have seen kitchens with this feature and I love it. I guess having a toaster oven is kind of like this, but two full size would be wonderful!
6) A warmer drawer; my sister has one and it is so convenient! (I am taking a lot of things from my sister's kitchen.)
7) A large two basin sink.
8) A large dishwasher.
9) Ample cupboard space.
10) A walk-in pantry.
11) A deep freeze.

Cooking appliances and accessories:
1) Kitchen-aid pasta flattener attachment.
2) Food processor that is easy to clean.
3) So glad to finally have a double boiler!
4) Round biscuit cutter; I am not sure why I do not have one of these yet.


I am sure there is more, and I don't think this is too much to ask. :)

  1. Lol! I smiled at your reference to a future, large Spencer brood of kiddos, and then you mentioned two ovens, and I cracked up.

    I want a food processor too!

    And I'm with you on counter space.

    Do you want to make your own pasta?

    Ok...that's all for now :)

  2. I have made homemade ravioli before and the worst part is getting to dough flat enough to use! Plus, I always decide to do this while I am pregnant, so it kills my back. My current pasta flattener is Mark... :) If I had the attachment I probably would make it more often.
