Like a charm (burns wood also).. Insurance and space constraints prevent us from having such a stove in our regular house.
That's 'progress' for you.

That is a great stove!

My grandmother had one similar to that and I used to be terrified that we would all blow up when she used to start a wood fire in it to take the chill off the kitchen. I could never understand how the wood fire and the gas peacefully coexisted.

Dear Katie,

Wow ... pleasant surprise this morning ...

Let me ask you, what is the green liquid -- is that food coloring ? You had mentioned sugar and water were employed ... That is why I am asking ...

Nathalia is very greatful ... we just showed your photo to the twins, and needless to say, they have tons of questions on the green water and a clown for a jar !

Well ... time to get to my other posts ... which are filled with replies.

Happy Holidays and
Kindest,
Margi

Yes, Margi, it is food coloring. Don't know why, but it's always been green, even when my children were babies.

I was an in-home daycare provider for many years and, believe me, "magic formula" was invaluable many times over.

Glad the children enjoyed it. You can make up any story about it you wish. After all, aren't grandparents supposed to do things like that?

I guess it would be my two chrome Kitchenaid model G mixers. People keep asking, "why do you have two huge mixers in your kitchen?"

Leo Lady,

I love used earthenware ( Terracotta = Barro ) and I have one from my Grandmom“s Trattoria --- my lasagne with Ragł is always prepared in this large clay vessel ...

Happy Easter.
Margi

There's one thing that people always comment when they walk into our kitchen. It's our 46" TV mounted high up against one wall opposite the breakfast nook. It just looks unproportionately huge and sticks out like a sore thumb. It was my wife's idea. The previous, smaller 32-incher was more fitting.
