fireplace

The final days have come.  After one of the most stressful weeks of my life due to our house purchase nearly falling through, it seems that everything is in place and we will be moving on Saturday.  The only good thing about this past week’s stress is that it makes the move look easy!  

Normally I get especially nostalgic and somewhat paralyzed when I move.  This time, that doesn’t seem to be the case.  I am dreaming of a veggie garden, a huge herb plot, a yard for Mini Whipped and the pooch to explore.

One thing I can’t explain is how I keep moving into homes where the kitchen is just about the worst room in the house.  In our condo, I have hated the kitchen counter, cabinets and appliances for 5 years.  In the new house, there is a sub zero fridge and the space is slightly larger but it is still cramped, has finishes I wouldn’t choose and get this…. an electric range.  A brand new, almost never used electric range.  Though I felt that I would need to replace it immediately, we have so many things to buy that I am wondering if MAYBE I could live with it for a little while.  So please, please someone tell me that they love electric and tell me why?!  

Thanks for stopping by Whipped and if you don’t hear from me for a week or so, you will know it is because I am buried under the move and have not yet found which boxes contain my pots and pans.

    Congrats on the new place! I can’t wait to see pictures of it. If you need some care packages, let me know! Cookies can be shipped ASAP :)

    My first two apartments had electric ranges. I can’t say I LOVED them, but I will say they’re not as bad as you think. You get used to cooking over heat with a slower response time. Congrats on the new place!

    This is the perfect time of year to move. Change goes well with the seasons, it’s not too hot for all the furniture moving and rearranging and the windows can stay open to ventilate any painting. It’ll get cooler just in time to still remember where you put the holiday decorations and you can get detail-oriented inside when it’s less appealing to go outside. I grew up on and learned to cook with an electric range. You have great cookware, you’ll be fine. Also that fireplace looks promising, I’m seeing a bungalow on a tucked in street. Happy taping!

    Is it one of those solid-surface (for lack of the proper term) electric ranges? If so, easy to wipe down. Otherwise, consider how quickly water boils and the fact that electric ovens are supposed to be better somehow (I don’t remember how though). And keep a trivet nearby to remove pans from the heat while you wait for a burner to cool down.

    Good luck with the move! I have had an electric range all through college and in all my Chicago apartments and they really aren’t too bad. I bet you wont hate yours, especially if it is new.

    Good luck!! I’m a really nostalgic mover too… My parents have lived in the same house since I was born and after college I moved to an apartment and am still there 5 years later. Clearly, I’m not a good mover! I’m glad everything’s working out for your move :)

    I’m delayed in my Whipped reading, and have some catching up to do. Just want to say that I love this photo, Care. You’re really getting talented with the camera. I’m going to call you later on today! I miss you.

    New reader, perusing archives, don’t know if you’ll ever read this but…

    Electric ovens are better because they produce a drier heat – when the gas burns in a gas oven, some moisture is produced as a by-product of the combustion process. Therefore, things tend to brown better, and baked goods like bread get a better crunchy crust.

    As for the stovetop, you’ll adapt, and probably make good use of the “high” setting to get pans heated up quickly! I’ve used gas, coil electric, and currently own a “radiant heat” (flat-top) electric range. We picked that for the easy of cleaning with a growing family.

    Happy cooking!

    It’s really very difficult in this active life to listen news
    on TV, so I only use web for that reason, and get the most recent information.
