We just got our stove and oven in working condition again, after the gas valve was accidentally shut off a week ago. Which meant that our crock pot got a lot of visits, as did the old electric skillet, a small electric burner and a George Forman grill. We learned what you can and cannot do on a single electric burner. Boil water? That would be a "no." (Although you can cook pasta by leaving it in the warm water long enough.)
On the whole, I think our culinary creativity got a real work-out--but I'm glad to be "cooking with gas" once again.
