other people’s handiwork

Well … our oven hasn’t been working properly for several months now. We finally went and bought a new one. We shopped around a bit and ended up with a lot of bells and whistles (relative to what we have, and relative to what we might normally look for), but it was just a few hundred dollars more than a less expensive version of the same, and it offered a lot more. So tomorrow we should have a new double oven (both underneath — one small, one large) with a glass-top stove. We can bake again! Hooray! We don’t do much dessert baking, but there are many dinners we enjoy that require some oven time.

Links today run the gamut. Enjoy!
