Our oven doesn't have a temperature setting. I am learning to go by an oven thermometer (so glad we picked one up right before we left)!! Sometimes things get a little carried away and we lose touch of how fast the temp can rise and fall. The first few days we didn't have a ton of food/ingredients in the place, so I used one of two cookie packs...we were desperate.
I've burned just about everything on the bottom, so I think we'll try to raise the rack a bit.
Yesterday we learned a very important lesson about paying our bills. We figured we had a month, or so. A week ago we got the bill for electric, water, trash and knew we needed to pay it. The system works well here as you go to a kiosk and pay all the bills at one place. I was going to meet a friend for coffee and learn how to do it exactly. We waited a day too long. Electricity was shut off from Thur-Fri (until we got it paid). No hot water! No heat!! No Internet! I know this is normal for so many people, but it seemed crazy that we were being penalized for paying only a week after we got the bill. Plus, I felt like a rebel for not paying on time and I don't always like that feeling...only sometimes! Live and learn. It took us all day, but we got it all paid!
