I am at war

With my oven.

evil oven

Oh yes, the dear sweet beautiful oven I was so excited to get. I can't seem to get anything I bake in it to turn out right. (only one time was error on my end)

Things don't cook right - they either burn like the blondies

or today I tried to make chocolate peanutbutter chip cookies and they came out undercooked - even after cookng for well over the time on the recipe

ewwy gooey cookies
ewwy gooey cookies

( I like gooey cookies but I tired this and I feel like if I ate a whole cookie I'd have a tummy ache and probably salmonella. )

- and then of course the next batch i burned.

they may not look burned but they are hard as a rock. SIGH

This is really upsetting to me- I haven't successfully baked something since I moved here. :( I called my mema today to whine about this and ask her advice since she has used a gas oven forever. She suggested Iget an oven thermometer to make sure the oven temp is accurate. So I am going to do this when I make it to walmart. Hopefully I can get back in the baking game. I am of course the wanna be baker...and I wanna be baking. SIGH.

I am open to any and all suggestions out there. I promise I will bake soon. In fact I am doing a little baking this weekend for my dad's bday - but I am waiting til I get to Frederick to use Moms oven. I know I can bake in that. :-D

  1. We've had a gas oven for the past few years and it takes a lot of trial and error, but now it's weird for me to cook in an electric oven! Patience.. it will all be fine.
