There has been an exciting development here at Annie’s Eats – we have moved into a new house, and my kitchen has just undergone a serious upgrade!  I could not be more thrilled with our new home.  I love the whole thing and even though we are still getting settled, I have already been cooking and baking up a storm in my amazing kitchen.  It would be very difficult for me to list all the things I love so much about it, but a very brief list would include:

A humongous island with plenty of room for practically any project I decide to tackle
Plenty of counter space
Cabinets that actually fit all of my stuff!  And, the shelves all roll out for easy access
A walk-in pantry nearly five times the size of my old (teeny) one, with tons of shelves
Water softening system – my dishes actually look clean again!

I finally feel like I have the kind of kitchen that matches my passion for cooking and baking!  Though it has been fully operational since move-in day (you know my priorities), it will still be a little longer before I share a photo tour of the kitchen.  I have a few minor decorating things I would like to finish before I deem it complete.   I made these cookies as a thank you for our wonderful realtor after we closed.  You know, I look for any excuse to decorate with royal icing :)  She loved them and said she will order some next time she has a work-related function – hooray!

Our new home – we love it!
