Some Basic Cooking Information

Most of the time when you are cooking or baking using the oven - 350 degrees will be your setting.
Use Pam on everything, even if you are throwing the pan away.


Liquid and dry measuring cups are not the same. The pyrex/glass pitcher-shaped measuring cups are for liquid ingredients.
3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon
4 Tablespoons = 1/4 Cup
2 Cups = 1 Pint
4 cups = 1 Quart


Chicken tenders take about 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. (Longer if the oven was not preheated, already at 350 degrees, when you put the chicken in.)

Chicken breasts will take longer, usually about 45 minutes, depending upon how thick they are. You can always cut them smaller to bake them.
Slice into them to check if they are done.

If you don't have a packet of rub, make your own. Consider using - pepper, paprika, Old Bay, and other spices you have. Mix them together in the bottom of a ziploc back, then add the chicken.

Food can sit out to cool; remember that 2 hours is the threshold for spoiling.
