I've been fighting with my oven. This has happened before. Its a 25 year old stove with old-fashioned dials, but has a "feature" where it can go into automatic cooking mode, with no indication it has done so. Then it can decide to just use its "keep warm" setting, no mater WHAT temperature you set the stove for. Good thing we still have the manual. Turns out you just have to push in the stop timer button to put it back in normal mode. Which usually only takes us 3 or 4 days to remember, every time the "stove breaks".

This was the problem when I made the pita pizza.

Sounds likie your oven has a mind of its own. Like my Jeeps climate control.

I am sitting here wishing I had vodka and kahlua.
I've never been a big dessert eater, but after a really good meal I liked an after dinner Black Russian. And every aspect of tonight's dinner has my endorphines buzzing. I may have to make do with a hot chocolate... not the same.

Sounds like my internal temp controls right now, except there is no reset...

I think the ultimate dessert cocktail is a Brandy Alexander. 1 part brandy, 1 part creme de cacao, 2 parts cream (the heavier the cream, the better it tastes). I might just make us some.

I've heard of it, but I've never had it.
Make me one, too. It sounds delicious.

I'll think of you the next time I press the button on my Keurig and make another hot chocolate
