WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: Because the kitchen is really just right an alcove in the living room, it's integrated into the rest of the apartment and feels like a Southern-style keeping room. It's the tinest little kitchen, but with some creative storage and balancing acts, I've whipped out multicourse meals (including a full blown Thanksgiving feast with three desserts) and thrown some great parties. Everyone always wants to hang out in the kitchen anyway, so mine is right smack in the middle of the party.
