There are baking recipes out there for those of you who don't want to deal with the hassle of grilling. The best part of cooking in the oven is the versatility as well as the contained and controlled cooking heat that gets dinner done quickly.
When you think of baking, you think of cakes and cookies; however, there are so many more things you can cook in the oven. Pretty much any food you can put on the grill or cook on the stove top can be cooked in the oven. From steaks to pizza, the oven provides a fast way to cook and allows you to program in the temperature and time of cooking, making it an easy job for you.
I love to cook on the oven because your work is pretty much done until you have to take it out, unless of course you are cooking things that need to be flipped over such as chicken and steak. But with the constantly held temperature in the oven, things cook fast and evenly.
There are many ways to cook things in the oven. Your main methods are to broil, which is utilizing the top heating coil of the oven, or to bake which cooks from the top and bottom. Each method is used for a different type of cooking; mixing them up can cause dinner to burn, and we definitely don't want that.
Learning the basics of cooking in the oven isn't very difficult. As you learn new recipes and improve your cooking skills and talents, you'll discover that preparing your own meals from scratch and cooking them in the oven is much more rewarding and healthy than making prepackaged meals that you throw in the oven.
You will discover as you gain experience and confidence the more you cook in the oven, you will find yourself improvising more often and adjusting recipes to meet your personal preferences and the inventory on hand in your cupboards. Remember, recipes are just a guide - make them yours by making a few changes here and there.
