A girl can dream, right? As I walked from booth to booth at this year's Kitchen and Bath Show in Chicago, visions of my dream kitchen danced in my head. I saw family and friends gathering in a large, open space. I had plenty of time to bake and cook yummy dishes for guests to enjoy...or prepare a homemade weeknight dinner for my husband and baby boy. Visit to see the fabulous kitchen products I would most definitely include in my kitchen. In the meantime, here are other kitchens that have caught my eye...


With 2 dogs, an outdoorsy hubbie, and an 8-month-old, an all-white kitchen isn't in my foreseeable future. But the beautiful cabinetry and large island with plenty of storage would be doable. (from KraftMaid Cabinetry)


Aaahhh, I'm more relaxed just looking at this comfy breakfast nook. And check out the storage underneath...I love how the designer utilizes every square inch of space! (from Better Homes and Gardens)


A kitchen with a farmhouse sink AND a prep sink in the we're talkin'. My husband and I both enjoy cooking, so this would be an ideal spot for us. (from Sunset)


This is Martha Stewart's kitchen...need I say more!?


This kitchen gives the stove the spotlight...and gives new meaning to "built-in" storage. (from HouseBeautiful)
