Moving into a new house is like getting to know a new partner - one that you met during a crazy week of jet-lagged, caffeine-fueled speed dating a few months ago and with whom you now find yourself in a long-term, committed relationship. It takes time to discover the personality of a house. You find wonderful little gems you didn't even know were there and strange little quirks you had no idea existed. It's fun - a puzzle, a lovely little treasure hunt. One new quirk that I will have to contend with is my stove. The poor little thing, its temperature varies widely. Some days it's cooler than expected, other days it's hot hot hot. While I wrangle with my temperamental appliance, I've been satisfying my dessert cravings with milkshakes.
