Francie, First off love the new Avatar! In my opinion GAS is best, but I use whatever I have to and get the job done! We just moved into our house back in March and it is the 1st time in 8 yrs I lucked out and got a gas stove, it runs about 25 - 30 dollars a month to cook with it. It is the only gas appliance we have in the house so I KNOW that is what it costs to use. Although we do not use a tank, we have natural gas from Georgia Natural Gas Co. When I was younger I used a propane tank for all our gas appliances in the house, I really did not like the way it got soot on the bottom of all my pots and pans. I prefer Natural gas for that reason, it burns much cleaner!
Not to get totally off the subject, since you mentioned living in a very rural area and wanted to make the Eggplant & Tomato Salad I posted a while back and you were unable to find some of the ingredients for the spices needed in that recipe. I wanted to let you know where you can order Ras-el-Hanout or Harissa Paste from it is called: Moroccan Spices, Argan Oil, Preserved Lemons, Harissa, Ras el Hanout, Zahtar and other ethnic gourmet seasonings
if you are still interested.
Also if you wanted to join a cook book club there is a great one called TheGoodCook.com just in case you are interested. I have been totally satisfied with every book I've ordered so far. If you should decide to join just let me know and I will sign you up under me and I will get a free book or some such thing!
Back to subjest I love cooking on gas!
