Welcome! I'm a new Pittsburgher and mom who is untrained in both life and cooking, but that just makes them both more exciting!

The Oven Test

  So, I was reading this Cooking Light article about the 25 most common mistakes that people make in the kitchen.  And unfortunately, I have done/still do pretty much all of them.  Having an oven that is uneven without knowing it is one of the listed items.  What's funny is that even though I know about ovens cooking unevenly, I never thought to actually test mine. 

So, that's what I did!  I put the bread on a baking sheet and found that in general we are pretty even except for the back left corner which left the toast a little bit darker and some random.  Good to know!  But what do I do to fix it?  I have no idea.  I guess just rotate the pans, which I have always done anyway.

Of course, Jake walked in the kitchen and wondered what the heck I was doing, so I told him that I was making bread crumbs.  Which I probably would have done had I not forgotten about the whole experiment and left it sitting out on the stove all night.  Blame it on the pregnancy hormones.  At least the oven was turned off.  *phew*
