Kitchen Dreams Blog
Our own Brooke Eversoll was consulted for an article in the The Tampa Tribune last Sunday. The full article was in the May 19th Your Home section. No link was found to the article, but we have the full transcription here:

According to a new study from the Pew Research Center, 47% of adults in their 40s and 50s have a parent aged 65 or older and are also either raising a young child or financially supporting a child aged 18 or older. The new term for this situation is the "Sandwich Generation"!
The flurry of "2013 Trend" lists is finally slowing and in an effort to digest and summarize the current kitchen trends as seen by the taste-makers of today I mashed about ten of the articles together to see what a word cloud of all of them would look like.

This is the $40,500 Meneghini La Cambusa refrigerator. It is customizable and can include “space for coffee maker, fitted pantry, double pantry, ice-maker, microwave oven, steam oven and multi-function oven.” You can probably put a flat screen in it somehow, especially if you are willing to forego the coffee maker!
