The shock and horror of not having an oven for 8 months is finally over!  Nick announced that he has purchased me a brand new oven!  The previous one was a Whirlpool – and the touch panel keeps breaking down (likely due to water seeping in when cleaning).  We had it fixed once already and now that it’s out of warranty, it would cost $500ish to fix on a new panel where it may very well break again.  side note: the stove top worked just fine – but lo and behold, it was the BAKE function that didn’t work.  such cruelty.

so last week – my new oven came! a Beautiful Maytag – where it hopefully will not break down on me after 3 years of use.

Yup – i’m ready to get my baking fix on!
