Lets talk appliances and am I crazy to give up the Gas?

So I am redoing my kitchen. This house that I recently moved back into has gas. Prior to moving in here I had electric flat top range. And although I thought that I really, really missed the gas when I didn't have it; I really love how easy it was to clean the flat top. Now that it's just the two of us, I am not doing a whole lot of fancy meals.

So now I am rethinking replacing this gas stove with an induction stove. CRAZY? I just don't know.

Do any of you have induction and what do you think? I mostly have stainless cookware but I do have a few of those new fangled non stick pans that I love. I guess they would have to go to the kid if I make the leap.

And does anyone have a counter depth fridge that they like? I would prefer a french door.

I have been looking at the GE Cafe series with the gas range with the double oven..... OY....I am feeling like I am over thinking this

Tell me what you love and hate most about your kitchen

I'm gearing up to do a kitchen remodel and would love to hear from those who have gone through this and from those of you who have great work spaces and what you love love love about them.

My space is very small which is actually ok and I'm trying not to change the foot print. I would love to hear about your storage. What do you love having and what do you rarely use?

Has anyone put in an Ikea Kitchen

I am preparing to do a remodel of a small kitchen. I hadn't thought about using Ikea but a friend dragged me down there and you know...They are kind of nice and you get a whole lot of bang for your buck. I would use their design and install services as I am just not "designy" enough to feel like I know what I am doing on my own. I also really don't want to spend countless hours agonizing over this which if left to my own devices is what would happen.

I downloaded their kitchen design tool and SO and I fiddled around with it for an hour and got frustrated....That's how incompetent we are with this kind of stuff.

So will the Ikea process drive me insane? Should I just forget it and go with a kitchen contractor.

EEEEEEEKS How will I ever cope!

I sold my house and I am moving in two weeks. The house I am moving into has a tiny kitchen with half the storage space so....we are remodeling it immediately. The planning alone which I haven't really even started yet is driving me insane especially doing it on a limited budget and no ability to do DIY projects.

Anyhoo, my cooking facilities will be extremely limited for a few months.

I know some of you have lived through this. Any helpful hints? I will have a microwave of course and an electric pressure cooker that has rice cooking and browning functions so we won't starve....

If you are making a Costco run this week

Be sure to pick up the baby squash...They are in the cold veg area in cello bags. Little patty pans and zucchini's. I just roasted them up with salt, pepper and EVOO....Boy are they good!

Scramble an egg inside it's shell...Here's a neat trick

I haven't tried this yet and although I've been intriqued by those infomercials for a gadget that does this...I've managed to keep that toy out of my kitchen. Here's a way to do it with a long sleeve tee shirt and some string.

I have come to accept my body dysmorphia....

As of today I have lost a total of 66.1 pounds since August. Yet as hard as I look I just don't really "see" it. Sure I have collarbones again and my clothes are a little looser. Now I still have a ways to go on this metamorphosis...But for those of you who have lost quite a bit...How long did it take for you to really "see" a dramatic change.

9 pounds of Callebeaut dark chocolate!!!!!

A few weeks ago a new restaurant supply joint opened near my house. My husband was chatting up the manager and mentioned that he enjoyed making candy. Well there was a "distressed" 10 lb block that he didn't want to put on the shelf...(There was a small tear in the wrapper) that he offered my husband for just shy of twenty five dollars. Well my guy couldn't resist such a deal so this humongous block of chocolate came home with him. We used a pound to dip some bonbons and macaroons...But a pound of chocolate goes a long long way..

So anywho...I have nine lbs sitting on top of the fridge waiting for a plan..

I need ideas.....

And how long with this stay fresh?

Jailbreak the Patriarchy

I posted this a while ago is some of the Feminist groups but I came across it again today and had some fun with it. So if you use or have access to Google Chrome, this extension will gender swap what you are reading in your browser. It's enlightening and particularly entertaining when reading anti choice legislation or even DU.
