What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? The hardwood floor has some pretty deep, dark water stains but I don't have the funds to replace it just yet. So, I used the little rug in front of the sink as inspiration and painted stripes on the floor. Now I feel happy instead of depressed everytime I walk in there!

What's the story of your kitchen?
This is a bit of a cramped galley with limited cabinet space but it could be worse. As it's separated from the living space, I've tried to make it a fun place to cook!

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
I make a pretty mean chicken marsala with kalamata olives followed by tiramisu.
