RE: Does anyone have clear glass pendants with edison bulbs? (Follow-Up #11)

Edison bulbs in my foyer. Never even noticed them after a while. They were also on a dimmer so I could turn them down if they were too bright. But a kitchen might be different than a foyer....I LOVE the way they look.

Wow...that is about all I can say...well KNOW better. I have had it since last year and it sits and waits patiently for me to use it...sigh. Today was the day. I baked sourdough bread this AM ...there is a thread over on cooking forum if you want to travel over and look :) I stirred up the pizza dough late this afternoon on a whim, used the recipe from The Way the Cookie Crumbles Blog. I didn't put in the wine but followed all the other inst. Amazing..perfect crust. I preheated the steel 6" from the top of the oven. 550. for 40 min. I divided the dough in to 3 /12oz pieces and used two and put one in fridge to try tomorrow and see how it does. I had also bought some pizza screens last year and never used you see a trend ???? I stretched the dough...which is amazingly easy to do. I placed it on the screen and topped lightly with sauce and pepperoni and only 6 oz fresh mozz and 4 oz parmesan.

All of this is new territory for me. I usually prebake the crust a few minutes to set it up in order to try and avoid soggy...and I usually over load the fillings. Restraint was my friend tonight . Baked in the oven for 5 min....slid the screen out from under the pizza with my peel and finished it for 3 min. Perfection...I tell you perfection. Number 2 was even more wonderful! And the great thing is that my 7 yr old Miele ovens hold the temp . so the oven was ready for #2 by the time is was topped and ready to put it in. Perfection :) indeed. All of this and I forgot to turn on the broiler to high to superheat the stone...tomorrow :)

Here are some pics. I am so ready to try pizza once a week now and see where this new interest leads me. Trips to the gym will now increase as will the bike miles...LOL !

RE: Evaluate my kitchen plan! (Follow-Up #2)

Before I read the comments by LWO, I had the exact same concerns...Difficult venting and narrow aisles entering the kitchen at each end of the island. I'm worried about the whole aisle/hallway through to what looks like it might be the back door being too narrow, also.

Is there any chance that raised bar on the hallway side would end up becoming a drop-off place for mail, groceries, schoolbooks, etc? Family members have a tendency to use available flat surfaces. That could be quite dangerous right over the cooktop.
