i mentioned in my star cake roll post a couple weeks ago that my oven was on the fritz.
well, it has graduated from "fritz" to "kaput". and unfortunately the beautiful old monster appliance that it is, it's not an easy repair. something about a hot wire relay... that is no longer available. ugh.
i searched and searched online to find the part, and outwit my repairman and all of his insider wholesale connections. just when it seemed i was totally out of luck and planning my first bank heist to replace the sucker, miracle of miracles, the rainbow unicorn of appliance parts popped up on ebay.
i bought it and it's on its way. cross your fingers with me that it works and that i wasn't taken for a ride to scam-town in even buying it.
in the meantime, here are the silver linings... it's warm outside, so who wants to turn on the oven anyway!? ice cream doesn't require an oven! and here's a homemade ice cream sandwich that requires no oven at all!
all you need is a food processor or strong blender for both the "ice cream" and the cookie. they are both raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, and deliciously satisfying.
who needs an oven...?
(ps. oh, and i just got a new lens i'll be playing with... woo hoo!)
