It's a good thing my 14-year-old son loves pizza, cuz that's about all I'm up for cookin' after a long day schlepping groceries at the local Super Valu.
Some might currently blame my hatred of cooking/baking on the relentless, sweltering heat. Who wants to turn on the oven when it's 88 degrees in the kitchen already? (Our air conditioning is on the fritz.)
But here's the truth...
I blame my lack of culinary ingenuity on the fact that I never had a Kenner Easy Bake Oven.
My childhood best friend, Valli, had an Easy Bake Oven, however.
And I was GREEN with envy. I loved spending the night at her house and "baking" by lightbulb one of those adorable little Easy Bake Oven Cakes.
It was too cool.
She also had the Barbie Dreamhouse, and some cool plastic go-go girl wigs for playing dress-ups. But the Easy Bake Oven was my heart's desire.
Seems I'm not the only Boomer gal -- or guy -- with fond memories of the Easy Bake Oven.

Have a great Wednesday!
