the joy of having to bake

i accidentally posted this to the LA boards, apologies for the double.

i'm house-sitting for the next few weeks at a place where the gas stove doesn't work, but the oven does. so no frying, sauteing, boiling. (i do have an electric teakettle so i can still bring water to boil.) i am stumped. i discovered today that you can 'bake' eggs in the shell, but other than that all i can think of for warm food are variations on bread, baked potatoes and roasted vegetables. could i make hot cereal for example? how would you cook things like beans, rice, pasta, soup, from start to finish using only the oven? any other great meals you can think of?

or should i just look at this as an opportunity to live on cake for a while?
