I love having my oven back

I went 6 months with a broken oven. All I could use for that time was my cook top. No baking at all. I was going through withdrawals. I'm still trying to catch up from not baking during that time. Today I got a good start.

First there is the Five Minute Artisan Bread
It was so good, I ordered the book. Not to mention we ate half the loaf. I only used half of the dough. I can't wait to see how the next batch bakes up.

Because it was such a nice day, it was time for grilling. Grilled chicken marinated in Scott's Barbeque Sauce and potato salad. I guess I'm skipping spring and going right for summer meals.

Earlier in the day, I'd made a chocolate sheet cake. It's a simple recipe I remember my mama making when I was younger. It's so rich and so so good.

How much do I love, love, love that you used Scott's?! My MIL always takes a few bottles back home with her when she visits.

I am glad that you remember that I used to cook..because you know that I don't cook much now.
