Stock up on apple cider because you’re going to love this caramel apple cider! It’s like drinking a caramel apple. Perfect for a cold winter day!
I’ve been having trouble with my oven for the last 3 months. It heats up but then doesn’t hold the temperature.
I had a repairman out a couple of months ago to fix it and he replaced the thermostat. But the convection fan wasn’t working and he didn’t fix that and the temperature still didn’t hold.
So I had another repairman out last week. This guy was more thorough. He took the time to investigate and found the control board was the problem (in addition to the fan and possibly the thermostat).
Turns out they don’t make the control board any more so I need a new oven. The timing couldn’t be worse with Thanksgiving coming up but I’ve been lusting after a double oven for 15 years.
I bought a home warranty when I rented out my house. It was part of the agreement with the property management company so I didn’t have a choice in the matter.
I had to replace my washing machine in August and the company only gave me $290 for a $1300 washing machine. So I wasn’t too hopeful about the oven.
Well, they are giving me a reasonable amount to replace my single oven ($1900). Now the problem with getting a double oven is the size of the opening in my cabinets.
My house was built in 1958 and appliances were smaller then. I think there was a double oven there originally but the owner replaced it with a single oven.
Basically, the opening is 2-3 inches to short for a modern double oven. A friend of mine with carpentry skills is coming over this afternoon to help me make the space bigger. Here’s hoping it works! Until I get a new oven, you’re going to be seeing no-bake recipes.
Now about this caramel apple cider. I visited my daughter during the Purdue Family Weekend last week. She took me to her favorite coffee shop where I had this amazing drink.
Seriously, caramel apple cider is like drinking a caramel apple. I love caramel apples and a cold front just blew in today so this is perfect.
