LOVING THE OVEN


My one concern when we moved to the Tree House was the size of the stove and oven.  I was use to my large stove top, and big oven.  Since I use my oven a lot...I wasn't sure how I was going to adjust!!


For the record!!  I love this little stove and oven.  Everything I've made has turned out perfect and in much less time.  For instance this morning I made a Cinnamon Sour Cream Coffee Cake and it usually takes 45 to 50 minutes at 350 to be done in the middle.  This morning ~ (I've had to  make some adjustment on heat) at 300 for 30 minutes and done to perfection.

Yes, I love my little stove and oven!!!

  1. I am sorry I mussed coffee and cake with you this morning! I have been painting our utility room after plastering it and I am in a MESS ! It looks awful and i am trying desperately to redeen it ! Say a little prayer, please. I know it's just paint. But it is scary how BAD it looks !

  6. The amount that you cook and bake, I am sure it was a concern - so glad it is working out. And in shorter time too! Your coffee cake looks delish. And I love your watermelon canisters in the background - what fun!

  9. As long as you are able to turn out those masterpieces I guess it doesn't matter the size of your stove and oven.

  10. Is it a convection oven? I've heard they're great and take less time to use.

    I hope you have a working coffee pot, because that cake looks like it would be perfect with a cup of hot coffee.

    1. No it's not a convection..just a simple apartment size stove and oven. Coffee pot is working, and yes bring your cup. HaHa

  11. So nice...faster is always better! Did you burn something at first before you figured that out?

    1. Oh yes, that first batch of cookies looked more like hockey pucks. But I'm a fast learner. Now I knock off about 25-30 degrees, and it works great for baking. Now it worked great at 400 for my oven roasted veggies and fish. So I just have to experiment.

  12. wonderful! And oh my goodness, you are making me seriously hungry. I can almost smell your baked oven invitations all the way from here! So, Wanda, please tell me you have some other counters than just those on the side of the oven? How do you prepare anything?!

    "Tree house?" Is that due to its size? No doubt I need to go back some posts and learn more...inquiring minds NEED to know! :)

    hugs.
