I have had my eye on this quilt for a while, but I just can't afford it. Crossing my fingers in hopes to win it.

Just looked at that 9.99 ikea one it's tiny.
Length: 10 1/4 " Width: 7 7/8 " Height: 2 1/8 "

There is a bigger one, but it is pretty shallow. We decided to go with a $13 rectangle granite ware one from target.

Day to day 1 or 2 burners. Bigger meals 3. Canning all 4.

When, eventually, we need to buy our own stove, I would look more at a 5 burner or one that you can swap out burners for griddles that someone mentioned above.

Went from one cast iron skillet that occasionally used for cornbread to owning 3 different sizes and a griddle/grill. We use them all the time. Clean up definitely gets easier overtime once you develop a routine and pan develops a good seasoning.

Our only gripe with them, is uneven pancakes. We have tried warming it slowly and all that. Next time I am going to try warming it in the oven while making the batter is being made.

We used to make venison tacos with the ground meat. Could really tell the difference other than they are a little more dry than beef.

If you haven't cooked it before, be prepared for a very strong smell. Unfortunately (for me I guess) the smell of venison cooking, really puts me off of eating it.

We do a version of this black bean taco (http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/02/crispy-black-bean-tacos-with-feta-and-slaw/)

We sub in the Joy of Cooking refried black beans and use red cabbage instead of a slaw mix (1/2 small red for 2 people - the slaw softens quickly so we make just enough for one meal). It has become a go-to staple at our place.
