It’s a place we all have a love/hate relationship with.
When we can dance in the kitchen while jamming out and sipping on some wine while cooking, we love it.
When the kids are screaming in the living room, the husband is working late, it’s 7 pm and you forgot to defrost the meat, we hate it.
To help you love your kitchen more, we took to Facebook to find out some of your favorite tips on how you maximize your time in kitchen with either meal prep or the actually cooking.
