Baking before last week's blizzard, I noticed lack of oven spring in a miche. Worse, 40 minutes into the bake, I spotted an uneven color. The next day I went to turn on my oven. It was dead. This has happened twice in my kitchen. I did manage to put out a few loaves with my Breville counter-top oven. Now I'm waiting for an upgraded big stove. For now, though, baking is confined to crackers and flat breads!
