This is my favorite time of year. I adore being with my family and relishing in moments that I know will become some of my most fondest memories down the road. Thanksgiving takes the pie when it comes to my most enjoyed holiday, just beating out Christmas and my birthday. Thanksgiving is the holiday whose only stress is what to cook, rather than the pressures of picking perfect gifts. And as for my birthday, being born the first week of January (1/4) means that my big day was always overshadowed by the thrill of the major preceding “events.” Aside from the love I have for my family and for having them all around, my favorite part of Thanksgiving is definitely eating. The thought of food in general, let alone all of that turkey goodness, thrills me.

The hub of the holidays is the kitchen.

The first place everyone flocks to after entering through the door of my home is definitely the kitchen. Everyone wants to see what’s cooking. This got me thinking about what kind of amazing kitchens are currently on coldwellbanker.com so I started searching for the most stunning, entertainment-worthy, professional grade kitchens which I’ve shared below.
