I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed. Really a nice post here!

Enjoyed your post. Just wanted to add that we also use wood heat in the winter, with the blower on top to help heat the room. My husband also built a rack that we hang the snow gear on, including dowels at an angle for gloves, mittens, etc.

I also cook on the wood stove. I bought a crock pot insert at the thrift store, which I cook soups, stews, chili, anything in. I put a thick clay trivit on the stove, and put the pot on that. Start with hot water, then add your ingredients. If it gets too hot, then put another trivit under it. We also cook bread in a turkey roasting pan with a cookie sheet cut out to fit longway in the pan, but the sides are smaller to allow even flow of air to cook. It takes a little longer, but it works great. Hope that helps. It's also great for keeping coffee, tea or hot chocolate hot, set it on the top of the stove for a short while (as long as the mug can handle the heat!).
Happy cooking, and country living.
