‘Tis the season of blockbuster movies, and I for one am getting back into the summer Marvel movie hype with gusto.  I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on opening weekend, and it reminded me of a challenge I’ve been talking about for awhile, but never gotten the motivation to start: baking my way through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
