Somewhere on here I posted a recipe for a cake and the directions said to put it in a cold oven and then bake. It was great.

I'm in the "it depends" camp. I do NOT bake much, so when I do I follow instructions to the letter. However, I'm an experienced enough cook that when it comes to, say, roasting a bird, I don't find preheating the oven makes that big a difference. It certainly doesn't for casseroles. I DO use a meat thermometer with a probe and timer. Works every time.
