What's For Dinner?


That question is what I am thinking when I look at the new stove!

It arrived yesterday and what an effort it was getting it into the house.
But these two guys did it!

After they delivered it to the kitchen, it was up to Ryan to hook up the gas and level it.
Since the house is 106 years old, naturally the floor slants about an inch. Then the two of us pushed it back in to place.

It's so shiny and new that I don't want to cook on it yet!

Someone is going to have to christen it though!

It just won't be me. I need some cooking lessons first!
Isn't she a beaut? I'm going to call her Bertha!

Pin It!

Big Bertha, perfect!! I am sure she loves her new, cozy home. D, it looks so perfect, just like it has always been there!! Love it so much for you and your family of chefs.
I found my coverlet and it is on its way and so are the shams. I think we are on a roll, xo Kathysue

Big Bertha is gorgeous!...if I were you I think I would just relax and bask in the radiance of her pristine glory for a few days...there is plenty of time for her to prove that she is more than just a pretty face!

I don't care what you call her...just call me for dinner whoever cooks it. Lol.
She is a beaut. I do know that what you have in the middle will get too hot when you cook as the gas flames really pack a heat punch and gas ovens usually vent up the back and get really hot too.
Wouldn't want your beautiful cheese dish and oils to be ruined or catch fire.
I am sure they are just there for decoration right now right?

*** OMGIH, I have been WAITING to see this, and Delores, IT DOESN'T DISAPPOINT!!!

BIG! It's so LUSCIOUSLY B*I*G!!! I'd be over-the-moon (even tho I'm NOT much of a "fancy-schmancy" cook anymore)!!! We (Jim seems to be "cooking" more than me!) have it's "baby" version, & must admit it DOES make a difference, at least to me~~~ and I oh-so-love the red knobs!!! I wonder why they're just a "turn-on" to me! (Pun there?)... (HEY! Maybe it ISSSSS all about "SIZE"~~~ grins!!!).

ANYhooooo, am SO HAPPY that YOU'RE HAPPY!!!

If I were you, I'd have a lovely, romantic picnic in the kitchen... Dom and all, & just to ADMIRE it while you cook hard boiled eggs. WHY hard-boiled-eggs you ask??? Cuz you can write hubby's name on one & give it to him, hugging him and telling him he's "A GOOD EGG" for getting this for you!!!

E*N*J*O*Y, Sweetie!!!

Hugs n' stuff,

Nice to meet you Bertha, Big Bertha that is:) Looks like its always been there, and it looks fabulous. Enjoy....once you get going with it, you are going to have a blast. I look for excuses to cook with my new Ilve, my boys look at me like "whats she drinking" when I am only too eager to make their forth dinner request for the day:)
Enjoy!

I love Bertha...what a dream stove. I envy those red knobs. I have a stainless steel stove but it is not a Wolf and the knobs are on top on the cooktop (which was a very poor design), but since I only boil water it will suffice, l.o.l.

Bertha is a beauty! My chef would love to have one of Bertha's siblings. With a small kitchen we settled for a Russell Range. I know Bertha is going to assist with some amazing cuisine! ~ Sarah

Sonia said...

Oh man... I would love a Wolf Stove! If you tell me you have that gorgeous "Big Beautiful Bertha" and don't know how to cook, why I'll just...have to come over and volunteer! It's beautiful sweetie, Happy Valentine's Day, now go cook dinner! Marcia

Bumbleberry Stitches said...

Wow, what a stove. I want one toooo. LOL Funny the name.....my grandma was named Bertha and she was 4'7"-4'9" tall, somewhere around that. Not exactly a big woman. She used to say "why do people do that for?, called things big Bertha" She'd make like a joke, cause she was so small. LOL (Ahhh...♥Memories):D

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Bertha was my husband's mother's name and I had heard she was a very good cook. I can't believe you haven't cooked on that yet. I don't like to cook, but would if I had a decent stove like that.

Sue Murphy said...

AAAAHHHHH PERFECT!!!!!!!!!

A beautiful stove and what parties you can have

Priscilla said...

As far as I'm concerned, there is nothing better than a Wolf for serious cooks. I hope you enjoy your new treasure.

Tricia Rose said...

I have always thought scrambled eggs for two was the classic dish, to ease Bertha into her role...

Donna in Potomac said...

LOVE! When I get my Wolf (next lifetime - I mean kitchen) I'll name him Jake...after Jacob Black, the character who plays a WOLF in the Twilight series. Bertha's going to serve you well - ENJOY!

Vickie H. said...

ok, I just called my husband into the study to look at the picture of Bertha over my shoulder and announced to him that THIS is what I want for Valentine's Day!!! He groaned and said: "I have got to keep you off these blogs or I will be working until I am 90!". We have lately been talking about a complete re-design of our galley kitchen and this range just has to be my starting point for all things new!!! Thank you for inspiring me!

Victoria said...

OMG!!! I want you to know, Delores, that I have NEVER written OMG before, but big Bertha deserves it. She is so beautiful and SO HUGE. I wish you many, many years of happiness making wonderful meals or just enjoying how she looks. I must say I am equally impressed that you could help push this baby back against the wall.

Have a great time in Oregon.

XOXO Victoria

Marlis said...

Bertha is fabulous.. When can you christen her? And what are dreaming of making. Your kitchen is just so warm and fabulous! xo marlis

Terri M said...

I know you have waited a long time for this stove, so I can only imagine how thrilled you must be to finally see it sitting in your own kitchen. Bertha is quite a beauty.
Regarding the cabinet paint colors: have you thought about painting the cabinets white and teh island green?

Designs By Pinky said...

Wow, a BERTHA like that might just get me wanting to cook! Thank Gid Joe has decided he LIKES to cook now. After 43 years I am tired of cooking;):) Your new stove is over the moon gorgeous. Enjoy. SHE looks right at home there. XO, Pinky
