My oven is finally repaired!!!! I know in the past I have broken more than a handful of hand mixers from over use (before I got my Kitchen-aid) but never an oven from over use lol! The repair man wanted to accumulate all the parts for any reason my oven stopped heating up to save another trip and he replaced the element.
Needless to say I was very happy and spent Sunday binge baking lol! I made chocolate chip cookies, brownies, banana bread, French bread and I made 2 x Strawberry Rhubarb pies… one of Chris’ favourites! He loves it with vanilla ice cream of course!
I ended up using frozen strawberries this time because we ended up eating the first batch of fresh berries waiting for my oven to be fixed. I didn’t know exactly when it would be fixed and I knew Chris was just dying for some of this pie.
Making your own pie filling is really quite easy…. made even more so by the fact that I use the microwave to cook it. I find it not only cooks faster but there is no, or at least a much less, chance of burning the bottom of your favourite pot!
And here is the results of my binge baking…. Chris had me take a picture to send to one of his friends to tease him lol. Not that I don’t send enough for him to share. I had been expecting some hate mail texts from the guys at work when my oven was on the fritz because there wasn’t any fresh baking in Chris’ lunch box for them to scavenge lol!
