I can heat water for hot chocolate, cook eggs, make cream sauces, fry spam and…. make rice. The clean-up is fast and easy, which is important.
Before I moved onto the boat, I went through my kitchen and tried to figure out what I would be able to use in my galley. The microwave didn’t make the cut, but I had a Black & Decker toaster oven that I thought maybe I could use. On the boat, it had only been used to make toast and melt cheese. The other day, I was hungry for a pumpkin pie. Could I possibly bake a pie in the toaster oven? Why not?
I bought a pie shell. Not thinking, I bought a 9” because that’s what the recipe called for.
Well, it was a little larger than the oven, so I just turned up two of the sides, and it fit. Apparently, the oven is not exactly level, so I propped up the left side so I could get a little more filling in there without it running over the top.
It was a success! Tasted yummy!
Now I am looking through my recipes. I'll let you know about my next adventure in cooking.
