I did a little searching for some generalities about oven temperature, but I couldn't find a 'general' thread about oven temperature and only specific threads tailored to certain recipes/foods.
I also tried Googling it and asking my mom, but all of those searches resulted in 'weak' arguments as to why different recipes use different temperatures.
So, my question(s) to you all:
Why do certain recipes call for oven use at temperatures ranging between 350 to 375 to 400 and up?
-and-Could we generalize which foods would require one temperature (pasta vs roasts, etc) as opposed to another?
Thank you very much for all your help!
