Hello, friends! hope this finds you well and cooking, we have some last minute news about our Dear electric stove Miss Mildred, it is time to retire.
Today we are reaching out to the world for help.
We received the news a few days ago, after she accidentally became blind, after trying to change her light bulb in the oven, and noticing that the metal cast had melted into the socket. Unfurtunatelly, she is trying to tell us she can’t take the heat anymore.
Miss Mildred has been with us since we moved to this house. She has been more than a simple electric appliance. Over the years she has been our partner in blogging and a best friend. A white perky squared Lady, she has four beautiful electric spiral coils and four knobs with heat ranging from 1 -10 with one oven knob with a special feature “broil”. A little bright red mole is her most attractive feature, allowing us to know when she was on/off duty. She has a towel bar and a broil drawer never used. This discreet and austere lady has given us nine years of joy. She has held up to tasks of baking cookies, braising lamb, roasting chickens, baking bread, simmering, boiling pots of soup, holding clay pots for beans, heavy griddles and little pots. Mildred has endured and kept on keeping on. It is with great sadness she is retiring. She has been the quintessential part of our cooking team making possible our cooking blog.
We would like for her to retire with dignity and for this we need your help.
We are in serious need to change this stove as fast as we can. We have a cookbook to write and our Mildred just quit on us. We need your help! With our savings we bought a new stove which is waiting in the garage to be installed. Unfortunately we miscalculated and thought that installing a gas line in our little kitchen would be very easy, which it is not. We need $4,000 to install the gas line, to pay the city permit, the sheet rock work, and a new hood extractor fitted for the gas stove.
This stove means a great deal to us, since we have invested all our time and efforts in this cooking blog. We have not monetized our blog with ads because we want the reader to enjoy our posts clear of gags. We love to share with you not only recipes, but cooking methods, stories, ingredients and cooking tips.
Our cookbook content is due at the end of March and we need to keep making and testing recipes. This book will mean the first economic return since we started our blog. It will really mean the world to us if you can help us with as little or as much you can to reach our installing stove goal.
In return we will be able to keep sharing more cooking recipes with you and making our best of efforts to complete this cookbook with you!
Gratefully and Sincerely,
Ian and Mariana McEnroe

If you feel generous, grateful, and thankful, we appreciate any kind of help. Right now, we are thinking of many ways to say thank you and reward your help. At this time we are kind in panic mode about the situation…although we are hoping for the best. We will keep you posted on perks we will be offering to say thank you.
There is always a reason to season,
Thank you so much!
