Oven temperature inaccuracies!!

I've recently discovered that the oven in our new house is NOT at all accurate.  Which causes big problems for me (and potentially for you, if you are trying any of my recipes!).  The oven seems to be running about 50 or more degrees cooler than I set it too.  

I have now purchased an oven thermometer and plan to make the fruit crumble again soon, so that I can determine exactly how long to cook it and at what temperature.  Since it took about 35 minutes in my oven, which was probably NOT at 350 but rather around 300 degrees, it may cook MUCH faster in yours if you set it to 350.  Please keep an eye on it and test the fruit for doneness after 20 minutes or so.

Fortunately we have only lived here since July, so any of the recipes older than July 2010 should be fine.

This looks great! I have one other question. That picture on top of your blog, whats that called? It looks delicious. Can I have the recipe for that?

I am gluten, dairy free. I found out I had celiac, and now am trying (for the last year) to eliminate it out of my life. Its tough.

Thanks Margaret!

The picture in the blog banner shows my Clementine-Cranberry "Scones". They should probably be called buns, not scones, as these are moister and less crumbly than scones. Here is the link to the recipe: Clementine-Cranberry Scones. I hope you enjoy them!
