Why I Love Love Love My Kitchen

I love my kitchen because it's big enough for two people to make Christmas Cookies at once.

Here's our wonderful mess.
The outside temp was just above freezing and the Christmas tunes were blasting.
Winter Wonderland--Atlanta style.

The mixer was plugged in the island, we used two sinks and every measuring cup, bowl and cookie sheet we had.

When we planned this kitchen we wanted it to be able to handle at least two cooks.

Today, it did.
The island is just incredible.
  It's a Goldilocks Island: not too big, not too small, just right.

From top clockwise:
Spicy Cheese Straws, Lady Fingers, Fool Proof Fudge (yeah right), Tea Cakes.

Not shown; the Divinity that flopped, ( we call a "do over")
 the Spicy German Cookies (Pfeffernusse) that have to stay in the fridge over night.

Christmas baking is a special family tradition we try to enjoy every year.

Merry Christmas to all !
