The Kitchen

I love to bake.  So I was excited when my roommates and I signed up to live in the dorm rooms that have full kitchens--complete with an oven. Sort of.

Let me show you what I mean.

When you first walk in the door, this is the view of the kitchen.
(Roll Tide)


Then, when you walk into the living room, you see this.


Wait, WHAT!?  Let's take another look at this oven.


Yep, that's it.  That is all of it. 

Let me list all of the other wonderful things about this oven, besides it's size.
  1. Two of the eyes don't work.
  2. The oven doesn't bake evenly, so I have to take out whatever I'm baking and turn it halfway through the baking time.
  3. It bakes way too fast.  It doesn't matter what temperature you're supposed to put it on, or how long you're supposed to cook something.  For example, I baked a caked yesterday, and the box said to put it on 350 and cook for 35ish minutes.  I put it on 325 and baked it for 20 minutes, and it was done.
  4. Let's say that I'm baking brownies.  When I take them out to turn them halfway through, the outside edges will be overdone, but the middle will still be liquid.  So I usually end up cuting off all the edges and some of the bottom.
Also, this is all the counter space I have to work with.

Yep.  If you look back up at the very first picture of the kitchen, you'll see a big boxy thing on the counter.  When we moved into this room and saw this thing on the counter, we all looked at each other and said, "What the heck is that?"  You might be wondering the same question.  Well, I live on the 12th floor of my building.  (Yeah, I know.)  And it's a really old building with the under-the-window-AC-unit-things.  The big boxy thing on the counter is supposed to take the moisture out of the air and help prevent mold, but we all konw this building has a lot of that anyway.  I had some friends that lived in this building last year, and they didn't have one of the  boxy things because they lived on the 2nd floor.  So we were all surprised to see them.

Anyway, I still love to bake.  I also love to decorate cakes and cupcakes.  So instead of looking at this kitchen as a problem, I'm looking at it as a challenge.  And that's what I'll be writing about in this blog!  The challenges of cooking in a crappy dorm room.

Enjoy!
