My month long baking marathon concluded yesterday and I am already missing my oven. I don’t think I can let my oven stay cold for too long and will fire it up very soon. If you have been following the blog for the past one month, you would know that I was on a baking marathon with my blogging group. The only rule for this marathon was that all the cooking/baking has to be done in the oven, with the exception of sauces and some prep work. I divided the bakes into 4 categories, miscellaneous bakes, savory bakes, breads and cakes & muffins. Here is the recap of the marathon, 26 bakes in one month taking a break on Sundays.
