No Oven, No Problem.

John and I still haven’t decided on a place to live, but one place does stand out above the rest. We just want to make sure it’s the place for us before we start signing any contracts or paying anything. Although we aren’t sure where we’ll be living, I have come to the bitter conclusion we will not be having an oven. Now, to understand how devastating this is to me, you must first understand that I LOVE to bake. I am an awful cook, but I (try to)  make up for it through cookies, brownies, and cakes. How am I supposed to redeem myself now?

After throwing myself a little self pity party (which included some good cookies because I currently have an oven), I decided I would not let an oven define my kitchen status. I will find some redeeming factor; therefore, I used handy-dandy Google and God-sent Pinterest to help a girl out. Hello, no bake recipes.

Before you start heading to the kitchen to not bake, I just want to let you know I have not tried any of these recipes. I just figured it’d be good to have an archive of random no bake recipes near by. As I do try them out, I’ll let you guys know of my failures and (hopefully) successes. Let me know if any of y’all try them out–I’d love to know which ones to try first and which to avoid. Most of the following recipes require a crockpot, so if you don’t have an oven or a crockpot…well, I’m sorry. Bon appetit!
