Over the weekend, my wonderful MacGyver husband was able to install my brand new GE Cafe microwave and range. I chose the GE Cafe for two reasons. First, it has the look of a professional style range without the expensive price tag. Secondly, the GE Cafe range has a baking drawer! I would love double ovens, but there just isn't space in my small kitchen nor in the pocketbook!
As you can see, we still haven't put on the cabinet doors just yet. I ordered knobs and handles from Home Depot and am anxiously awaiting for them to arrive. Also, I'm still trying to decide a backsplash. Originally, I was going to put a piece of stainless behind the stovetop, but now I'm thinking of tiling all the way across. Tile? Don't ask what kind! I'm not sure, but I'm leaning towards penny tile or perhaps marble. You'll just have to wait and see!
It's been terribly hard to cook on the new range. It works beautifully, but I want it to stay perfect! I'm convinced that people who design showcase kitchens for hundreds of thousands of dollars don't cook in them! Anyway, the hungry diners here at Love and Life at Leadora would never allow that, and as soon as the range was put in, they demanded cookies. After much pressure, I finally broke down and baked espresso double-chocolate chunk cookies. I'm not sure if it was the new oven or my outstanding baking, but MacGyver husband proclaimed, "These are the best cookies you've ever made"!
