the stove debacle is over

So, those of you following me on twitter are up to date on the whole stove situation. But for everyone else I thought I’d cathartically post about it. The stove that was here didn’t have a functional oven, so obviously that wasn’t going to work long term. I found a killer deal on a larger O’Keefe and Merrit stove on craigslist (thank you craigslist) and all was well with the world. Until everything that could go wrong did. I won’t go into detail, but it took 2 movers, 4 days, 2 trips to the hardware store, 2 plus sized magic erasers, my dad, my landlord and my somewhat limited patience to actually have the stove in place and functional. And now it’s all mine.

It’s all just in time for my forays into bread baking and my somewhat uncontrollable craving for the best chocolate chip cookies ever.

    The stove is fantastic! We just scored a great deal on an O’Keefe and Merrit almost exactly like this one on craiglist, maybe a month ago. Gotta love craigslist! Your new place is coming together beautifully! Congratulations!

    Sorry to hear about the stove debacle – it certainly looks very cute and was probably worth the effort. I think I’ll have to try your best chocolate chip cookies ever because I’m pretty sure I have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. See here –

    (I’m very intrigued why the dough has to rest 36 hours – what does that d to it?)
