Would make a terrific mudroom entrance --- hooks for jackets, baskets for hats/mittens/hiking gear, etc. A bench to put on/take off shoes. The corner windows are a nice touch. The room has such a warm feeling to it.
Cooking Bacon in the Oven: Put parchment paper on the cookie sheets. Put the pans in a cold oven, set temp for 375 and begin your timer for 20 minutes. This works perfect! I will never cook bacon any other way!
