How to Bake in an RV Oven

When I first moved into our RV I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to cook like I had done for so many years in a sticks and bricks home and the thought of that scared me as I was afraid I would have to give up a part of myself in order to live this lifestyle. It took patience and time, but eventually I was able to cook without burning whatever I put in the gas oven. I prefer gas over electric, but it had been a long time since I had used gas and for some reason in my mind I thought it would be difficult to use.
 

Lucky for me I figured out rather quickly that I could still bake cookies, biscuits, cheesecake and more, as good, if not better than I had in the past.  The first thing I discovered was I needed to add baking tiles to the bottom of the oven.  The tiles would help distribute the heat better which would provide more even cooking. Second, I added an oven thermometer to monitor the temperature because it didn’t seem like the oven was heating to the desired temperature. A thermometer also lets you know when the temperature is actually at the degrees you want as there is no button to tell you you have reached the correct temperature. Once I added the thermometer, I discovered my oven was off by 25 degrees, which meant if I wanted the oven to be 350 degrees, then I had to put the dial on 375 degrees.
