Miss Elf...I like your kitchen and garden. The only thing I would add would be a huge Money tree in lthe back yard that produced a year round crop of $100 bills!

I'm pretty happy with the set-up I have now. I would like to add a 36" range and get the microwave off the counter. Micro-hood?

One thing I would like to do is have an area for the DW to do her baking. Like a kitchen next to a kitchen so she have her mixers and 'junk' at her disposal. It's tough when both of us are trying to cook at the same time.

I like all the ideas you guys have but while we are dreaming and since in dreams money is no object I would love to have a person to do the tedious prep work and that they clean up afterwards,I would pay them very well.

Gossie - are you talking about the steel rack? I do have two of them! I got them at Sam's Club. They were somewhere around $80.00 each or so?

You can get them online from the manufacturer, Seville Classics, if you don't have a Sam's near you. The price is the same but you have to have at least $100.00 order for free shipping. I got mine from Sam's but ordered extra shelves for them from Seville.

Thanks, Kitchenelf, for the explanation! I just learned something new today!

Actually, I have my fantasy kitchen - when my wife an I bought our new home two years ago we decided to go all out on the kitchen because we love to cook and entertain.

Double convection ovens, plenty of counter space, island, double sinks, large fridge, lots of electrical outlets, pantry on the side, built-in microwave, gas stove top and it is all located to be central to the dining room, living room and deck.

Mines good for now... except for maybe some more counter space. OH and can I have it moved to Mexico please?

Our present kitchen is so pathetic I can't even describe it. We have plans to remodel it, but until the time and the $$$$$$$$$$$$ magically appears, we're stuck with it.

I've designed my ideal kitchen and that's what we'll create when the time comes. It includes double wall ovens, a large island with a big pot rack overhead. Large, deep sinks and a spacious pantry. I've allocated a nice big space in a large bay window area for the table. Our house sits on an acre and the bay window would look out onto the back yard, which is filled with huge shade trees. It's beautiful back there and I enjoy looking out to see the birds and other living things.

There will be plenty of counter space and ample cabinets to store all our cooking toys/tools.

When we redo the kitchen, we'll be destroying the current breakfast room that is adjacent to the dining room and family room. That space will be turned into a special downstairs bathroom and a butler's pantry.

As I said, just time and money.
