I HAVE to admit, I’m a sucker for having one of those expensive-looking built-in ovens in my kitchen, despite having the cooking ability of a three-year-old. It’s shiny and pretty and makes every kitchen look complete. What more can I say?
Nevertheless, it still costs a pretty penny to purchase and install an oven like that. If you’re like me, you’re probably also looking for ways to justify the cost of your oven, and baking cakes, cookies, or preparing a Sunday roast is just not really in our Malaysian blood. Besides, the prepping and cleaning up afterwards can be a real pain.
That’s why we’ve scouted for the easiest oven recipes here for you. Considering that most of these recipes require you to place everything into one tray and pop it into your oven, they are perfect for the busy bees, and for the not-so-deft in the kitchen.
In fact, you can pop these in the oven while you do your chores for the evening, and then reward yourself after with a hearty, warm meal.
