Recipe ideas for kitchenette

sc2501 | Nov 25, 2012 07:44 AM

I would LOVE some help on this. I don't usually post on forums, but I look at them, and definitely need advice.

I am living in a studio in one of the nicest areas in Manhattan. The downside (and why it is affordable) is that my apartment doesn't have a real kitchen (and the bathroom hardly qualifies either). I have a stovetop, an oven that is broken (I have been waiting 10 months and tried several cleaners--the stovetop/oven is weirdly constantly hot, the entire oven smokes whenever it is turned on). Both the oven and stovetop are half normal size. The fridge is a mini without a freezer. I have no microwave or toaster oven (I have a half-size sink and about 1.5x1.5 feet of counter space). There is also no storage space to keep a microwave, or really many ingredeints (I have 3 small shelves).

HELP!! I am spending all my money on buying food out. I live alone and have no real way of reheating anything, other than to sautee it and then spend forever washing the dishes (I have nowhere to dry anything--bought a small tray I put over the stove, then clean the stove a lot) -- the tininess of the sink really necessitates not using many dishes, because I cannot fit any pots or pans inside of it.

I cannot eat soy, but I am ovo-lacto vegetarian.
