How to Bake in Your Vacation Rental

So you're going to rent a beach house with your significant other's family? Brave soul. I just made this trip, and made it home in one piece, albeit sandy. Since I'm a pastry chef, of course, I was asked to make goodies for everyone.

A generic list of available kitchen equipment was on the website for the beach house rental, but I was unsure of what else could possibly be included. Did they have a mixer? A microplane? A chef knife? No one knew. I couldn't exactly bring mine on the airplane, so what do you do now?

Here are some tips and some kitchen hacks for those of you considering doing some cooking and baking in your vacation rental.
