a few of my favorite things...

.... last summer we were blessed to actually complete a kitchen re-do and laundry room add-on.  The ideas we had we'd been kickin' around since we were engaged, and it was fun to see it come to fruition.  Unlike myself, I did research to find time-and-space-saving tips on a budget.  This was a very modest kitchen make-over.  Yet, it did include getting the washer and dryer out of my kitchen  and provided me with a dishwasher.  So, here's my favorite feature of my kitchen:  my large, single basin sink.  It of course, has the faucet that can come out of the holder and acts as a sprayer.  I love it!  Because we have a new computer and we can't find the photo software for our camera, I'll share an image I found on the web...
Why do I love this sink?  It holds a ton of dishes and it is deep so you can't see the dirties until you get up close, thereby decreasing the amount of time I actually load my beloved dishwasher.  It is so large that I can bathe my big girl in it, although I don't.  I did bathe my newborn son in it, though, to save on the bending over the tub and my post-partum belly.  I can fits up to 4 large stock pots in there at one time.  I can de-bone a chicken in the thing.  I am so pleased with this purchase and still remains my favorite feature in the kitchen.  So much so, that if we ever move, we will replace the kitchen sink in a new house if it is not a large single basin sink.

What's your favorite item in your kitchen?

When we updated our kitchen in Bham we put in a deep sink, and it was also my favorite! You're right about the difference it makes.

I would have to say my dishwasher is my favorite thing in my kitchen. I put everything in there, and end up running almost every day. I would be doing so many dishes if not for it. But that sink looks pretty nice, too.
