As we mentioned in our giveaway post last week the weather has been beyond awful in Utah for the past few weeks. We posted the giveaway to celebrate the sunny day, and then it got smoggy again right after. Boo! However, this weekend it was GORGEOUS and we took advantage.
Saturday I pulled out my Sun Oven and made this Chocolate Swirled Banana Bread recipe from Our Best Bites (you might have heard us mention them before, lol) Julie thought I should make quinoa instead …. Well my oven did not even get up to 200 degrees, my bread did not cook at all, and I had to bring it inside to finish it in the oven. I was so sad since we have been told by numerous people that the Sun Oven should work in the winter as long as it is a sunny day.
I knew I had been hauling my Sun Oven around while I moved, and in and out of the car for expos, so I wondered it it could possibly be dirty and not reflecting very well. I also had it up on my deck whereas I used to always cook down on the patio below. So Sunday I decided to try again after I cleaned all the solar panels and the glass door and moved it down to my backyard patio. This time, IT WORKED! Here is video proof 🙂
