From the heart of our kitchens come our most beloved family recipes. Whether passed down from generation to generation or a new Pinterest find, our kitchens come alive with the food we create there. Our kitchens have become the hub of our homes, the gathering spaces, the spaces of holiday meals and after school snacks.
Our kitchen clients’ are looking for spaces that function well, have character to match their own and allow them to express themselves through their food while managing their family’s busy lives.
Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Charm
Designed around a modern farmhouse kitchen feel, this kitchen incorporates warm grays and golds with accents of matte black. The basic layout of this kitchen will remain the same with some added functionality. The new quartz counter tops will be a nice addition to the space and allow the apron front sink to stand out against the Calcutta gold marble back splash.
This quaint space will be the perfect place for this family to bake their favorite cookie, Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookies. (recipe below) I have to admit they are pretty amazing, my family couldn’t stop eating them when I made them to try out for ourselves. So, so good! This is what’s it’s all about for us, creating family memories for our clients in the intimate spaces of their homes.
We are excited to have this project underway this summer, so be sure to follow along as it comes together. You never know, there could be more cookie recipes too!
Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookies
Courtesy Iroquois Street Family and HGTV
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
9 ounces dark chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
6 teaspoons Maldon or large flake sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 375ºF, and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Whisk the flour, baking soda, kosher salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.
- Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla until just incorporated. Add the flour mixture and beat until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and oats until evenly distributed.
- Form the dough into balls of about 4 tablespoons each, and arrange them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets, about 6 per sheet. Bake until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges, 15 to 18 minutes. Immediately sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon large flake sea salt onto each cookie. Let cool 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
