Thanks for correction. Interesting article. I liked the comment of 350 as a default setting. So we are dealing with ballpark figures?

I once made gluten free garlic cheese biscuits a la Red Lobster for my sister's Easter dinner. Tried them first at home on my elderly oven and they were perfect. Did them there and they were flat as pancakes. Thought it might have been the humidity on the Long Island sound.
Yep, I have to agree with the article. Having an oven thermometer shows you exactly how hard it is to maintain temp. Experience is the best way to learn what temp your food cooks at. People don't want to hear that, though-- they want the illusion of control. I never use a timer unless I have a stuffy nose-- otherwise, the smell tells me when my food is about to be done.
Oops! Sorry for the error in the original link. Thanks for the correction RiverFarm!
