I Don't Think You Understand...

Goodbye old friend!


...How happy I am to have my new oven!  Pary's got her groove back (said with a sassy roll of the neck.)

You don't realize how deep the need is to roast or bake something until there is no means to do it.

I was so bummed to lose my mid-century Thermador oven that was original to the house.  It was retro space-age chic and really suited our quirky house and its quirky inhabitants.

But I had to let ol' Thermie go and replace him with a new Whirlpool whipper-snapper.

Hello Sailor!


Look!  It even has a window so I can see the magic happen.  Ooohhhh....

I am on Cloud 9 and have already started baking.

In celebration of the new oven, I thought I would share a recipe with you.

Cranberry Persimmon Bread

I was introduced to this recipe from Ms. Amanda at Saving Myself Silly after telling her that I had a ton of persimmons from a friend's tree.

Now the dilemma will be what to cook next!

  1. Awesome i love both the gadgets! The old one is interesting, how did it work? I want one! I've got a whirlpool too and i absolutely love it. That bread looks delicious! I'm thinking about baking some hot choccolate cookies, im at home sick today. Mother nature is kicking my behind {TMI sorry}. I'm following you on Pinterest, i don't have facebook. Your blog is super cute! I'm stopping by from the December hop. I hope you have a great Thursday.

    1. The old one had two dials: one for broil or bake and the other for temperature setting. It cooked 25 off (which I learned the hard way) but was so cool. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ohhhh - I am jealous! I love your new oven....although I do have to admit a certain amount of intrigue with your old one! Mine is a very ordinary white, nothing special looking oven - but since I am not what you could really call much of a baker, or really even a very good cook, truth be told, there isn't a whole lot of demand for a nice oven. Have fun with your new "toy" - just in time to do some Christmas baking:-)

  3. Your patience is amazing! I would have had to drop in at a friend's house for a baking fix!

    1. I was getting a little mopey and friends did offer. If it would have gone on any longer then I would have lugged my whole baking cabinet down to the church and had a big time! :)

    1. I thought it was a bit fancy for me too since I didn't want/need anything fancy. I just need it to cook stuff. :) This was the least fancy model that would fit in our oddly sized space. So far I've played with almost all of the buttons. It's like getting a new toy for Christmas!
