Today is Day 7 of our Kitchn Cure, the yearly event when we roll up our sleeves and clean our kitchens from top to bottom; and on Day 7, you clean your oven.
But we had a thought. It's summertime. Who's been using their ovens? Not I. I bet your oven is gleaming and clean. So why not muss it up a bit? In the spirit of the well-used kitchen, the one that needs some elbow grease after all, let's make some recipes that really frack up the oven. Roast chicken, bacon-wrapped potato bites, blueberry pie, and all. Because you know what? All of these wonderful comfort foods make cleaning your oven worth the effort. They're awfully delicious — and terrible for your oven.
