All made from scratch, too, using a stove with a tiny oven.

Actually, it looks far healthier than the recipes in the ship's cookbook my grandfather had from when he worked on a sailing ship pre WWI. Recipes went something like: gently fry a dozen eggs in a pound of butter. I've never seen recipes with so much fat, salt and sugar.
