hey teeze, you could always move a tall pot off the stove to empty the oven. i can see how it would be annoying as all hell, but not impossible. i would have opted for only two burners if it would have given me a little more counter space. can't imagine ever really needing all four...

but overall, i LOVE LOVE LOVE this kitchen. amazed he had room for a dishwasher!!!

art, your comment confused the hell outta me. are you saying you prepared meals for the upscale restaurant out of cans or for the kids? and why were you asked to provide foodservice for the daycare again?

sorry if i'm not reading that right....

i once had my water "burp" at me, enough to scare me into always swirling the container while it's still in the microwave before taking it out!

i've got the cook's knife and santoku. i really do like them. a few years ago i "invested" in a wusthof that i never got around to get sharpened--i reasoned it would cost the same as a cheaper knife and last about as long. that's been my philosophy ever since and haven't looked back! these knives are great! the paring knife even comes with it's own little stand/holder.

i agree. it's time to not only donate what we can to the Haitian people, but CELEBRATE the culture--a large part of which is food.

i'm really surprised MrFaux pulled the race card when there are TONS of middle class blacks in this country who haven't a clue about any other black culture but the american version. how bout you check race at the door, and bring a dish instead! this IS a great way to spread knowledge about Haitian culture.

something i realized only recently--it's really important to use either self-rising flour or ADD BAKING POWDER to all-purpose. it really made a big difference in the crispyness of the result!
