    I would think baking on a every day basis would be a bit more laborious. Something tells me though if you did not know any different then it would be no big deal.

    To me food cooked and prepared over a wood fire taste much better for some reason. It might be the extra care taken or the slight smokey flavor.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    We have a hearth with bricks going all the way up to the ceiling. We use it every day in the winter, and we love it. It has become somewhat of a tradition in our family. There is nothing else you can do to your home to make it more comfortable and homey than to have a fire place and use it regularly. Our fireplace is in the dining room/kitchen area, so my wife is able to cook in front of the fire, and we eat dinner by the fire. And on cold nights, my wife and I like to sit with our backs to the fire to warm up.
    I'm always on the lookout for good firewood. When we go the the park, I often put logs that I find in the stroller or wagon, take them home, and chop them with a sledge hammer and wedge. We never pay for firewood. If you want to love your home I suggest you get the fireplace, and make it a habit to use it.

    I heat with wood stove wherever I rent in the country. I don't own...maybe some day. But where I am now has a large fireplace but I have it blocked off at the damper to keep the heat from going to the sky.

    I use a 'package' of insulation. Just kept it in the plastic wrap and tucked it up over the damper. The rock work is so large that it actually is in the front room and the kitchen where my wood stove is. I also have a Monarch wood cook stove.

    I have cooked for over 100 on a fire pit, a wood stove, a fireplace or what have you. I really don't want to cook for that many but I have. It can get to -40 F here, and usually does twice each winter.

    Since my health has waned, I did add a propane heater which I run off of 30 lb tank, also my clothes dryer. But the stove is always going, as it is now.

    Well, I'm rambling.

    I have never been able to cook, but I do have a marble fireplace thing (yet to actually use it). I eat out for all of my meals, the girl who I have yet to actually tell how I feel about her, works at a resturant by my house, so I go there a lot.

    The main reason why I am not a kindred member, has to do with herd mentality and paying dues. I don't want to pay for any kind of interests revolting to my comfort zone, so that's why I don't belong to a labour union. The only club dues paid for my membership were scouting and swimming, being athletic bodies without any real controversy at the time. I can't put my kids in scout uniforms now because of the political quagmires that have befallen organizations that ought to be fun.

    It's very hard to find a kindred that has a neutral forum ideologically, but otherwise folkish. Broad-based that may be, some prefer to find individualistic niches that sacrifice greater causes, thus no likely long-term investment can be vouchsafed for my peace of mind. When I put money in the collection plate at churches, that was in appreciation for the liturgies and homilies, but I never tithed on a regular basis, just during attendance.
