Apartment living: on broken ovens.

Say you want to surprise your significant other or your friends and coworkers with a yummy batch of brownies. You pull out all the stops, use the finest ingredients, and whip up a batch. Only, calamity strikes! You turn on the oven and doesn't work!

What do you do?

First of all, don't fret my pet. It happens to the best of us. But here's what you do.

You've got a microwave? Good. Pour some milk into the batter, mix it well, and stuff those brownies into that microwave. 6-7 minutes on high. There you go, problem solved!

You'll need the milk in the mixture as cooking the brownies in the microwave will suck the moisture out. Stop and open the microwave to rotate the brownies a quarter of the way every two minutes.

Remember this the next time your oven strikes out!
