Abbreviations I commonly use:
T=tbsp=tablespoon (3t = 1 T)
1 t of table salt = 1 1/2 t of diamond crystal kosher salt = 2 t of Morton Salt
BUT since salt is mostly to taste anyways, use what you want. Also, things like sea salt, etc. usually are in the Morton salt range.
Ovens and Oven Temperatures
What is a convection oven? Normal ovens (conventional ovens) cook by heating the walls and the air in an oven. However, there is an “envelope” of cool air around food that takes a while to penetrate. A convection oven uses a fan to move the air around in the oven allowing the food to cook quicker and more evenly. Nice if you have it but not required.
If you don’t have convection, usually add 25 degrees for a conventional oven. If the temperature is high say 425, I would add a few minutes to the cooking time instead. Remember you are cooking to a final temperature usually NOT A TIME.
Baking: Basically, don’t play with the temperature of things like cookies and cake.
