Stay tuned… This Foodie is experiencing technical difficulties.

So.  Evidently the baking ignitor in my oven breaking (and still being broken) was not enough in the technical difficulty arena.  Let me recap in order to explain why I will probably not get a new food post up until tomorrow:   I cannot bake.  My oven is still BROKEN!
