Pinch me… I’m dreaming…

October 10th, 2011 by katie

Do you fantasize about other peoples’ kitchens?  I do.  I read my favorite blogs and I imagine what spacious, beautiful, high-tech kitchens they must have to be so inspired.  And then I look around at my decrepit, aging model home galley kitchen and I sigh.  Sigh.  Yes all of the recipes you have seen here have been cooked on this 14 year old GE electric range:

Only three working burners and the oven-not so much.  But I don’t have a gas hook-up and, though I have spent hours at the appliance store, I just could not spend the money on a new electric stove.  So when Foodbuzz announced that Frigidaire was Test Driving their new electric range, I thought: why not?  What if I threw my hat in the ring?  What’s the worst that could happen?  I could win the opportunity to test drive a brand spanking new electric range with all the bells and whistles??  Um, Yes Please.  Over here.

Well guess what?  I actually won.  I get to test drive (and keep? Yes? Please? PLEASE??) a Frigidaire Gallery Range with Symmetry Double Ovens.  I am so excited I can’t even tell you.  Not even.

FIVE burners and TWO ovens-one conventional and one convection.  I am so excited.  Thanksgiving is coming and I am actually excited to be hosting.  I cant wait to share it with you guys over the next few months!

    That is so exciting Katie! Lucky!

    My kitchen is so pathetic, crappy electric stove (I have a gas hook up, just don’t have the cash for a new stove) and it’s so tiny my husband and I can barely cook at the same time.

    So I will live vicariously through your cooking adventures!

    We just got a new stove and I’m in hog heaven. Mine still worked but the stove top was so damaged from repainting and fixing and it was just gross. Seriously gross. Love my new one!

    I wish to express some thanks to the writer for rescuing me from this type of predicament. After browsing throughout the world-wide-web and seeing concepts which are not beneficial, I thought my entire life was over. Living without the presence of answers to the issues you have solved by way of your main review is a crucial case, and the ones that might have negatively affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your site. The capability and kindness in touching the whole lot was very helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks very much for your high quality and results-oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to recommend the blog to any person who needs to have guidance about this problem.

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
