No power day 6. Can you bake biscuits on cooktop?

How about anything? Biscuits. Buns. Cookies. Scones. Need something to get my blood moving and make me stop worrying about the trees on the house and the totaled car??!!!

    Hope you are well, warm, and safe. Hot biscuits will make you feel much better.

      Or Bittman's panfried pizza: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/07/din...

          Same here. My thoughts are with you. We were out for a week, but luckily no damage.

          1. Make your biscuits on the thin side and they should do fine on top of the stove. Flip them over when the bottoms are nice and brown.

            My phone and laptop both work quite well when the power is off.
