Why do I do this again??

So ALL week I have been baking and just for those of you that do not know.. I DO NOT COOK!!! I HAVE NO DESIRE TO COOK. Once more, I live in a 1973 built home with what I am starting to believe is the original oven. NOT GOOD.. The darn thing never cooks right. Good excuse not to cook right?? Yea except for when your sons teacher ask you to make treats for the week and gives you the recipes. No problem I say. Forgetting I have the oven from HELL. So off we goto cook.
First attempt.. (sunday night)Rice Krispy balls. No Problem. If you can read the instructions. I'm stirring my rice krispys trying to figure out why they are not sticking.. look at recipe again..yep that's right I put in like a double batch of rice krispys and only a single batch of Marshmallows. HA HA luckily I had marshmallows left over from camping. Zap those and we are good..
Second Attempt: Layered Sugar cookies ( tuesday night) Lets just say they so did not work. What wasn't gooey in the middle was burnt. Not my fault the oven right.
Third attempt: Layered Sugar cookies DUE Tomorrow (Wed. Night) Success Kinda .. I had to put them back in the oven to finish cooking but kept a very close eye on them. Hurray!! Yea not so much so I get the perfect cookies out of the oven. Think these would be great if I put some icing on them so that can be like the earths surface. ( see I had a plan,remember these are suppose to be rocks) Ok so the icing seeps down into the cookie and no you can't see the Freakin layers Uhm the whole point of the stupid cookie is to see the layers!!!
Did I mention I don't cook!!!! Now I have to figure out how to make Almond bark for a kid who is allergic to nuts. That would be my kid by the way so I really shouldn't complain.
Maybe if he wasn't driving me crazy today I would be happier about this.
Did I mention I DON'T COOK!!!

Wow...that's a particular teacher there giving the recipes and everything. haha! Whenever I've been asked to bring a treat, I get to pick what it is.

Is it time to invest in a new oven? A bad oven will make baking h#ll.
