Recipes for Convection Ovens

Does anyone have a good step-by-step recipe for a counter top convection oven? I acquired mine without a booklet and the first time I tried to make a cake, it came out with a "Bob's Big Boy" curlicue on top, and it was icky dry. Cookies were crispy outside, but wet on the bottom (too high a temp. probably). So far, I've used it to make jerky and beer can chicken, but I'd love to branch out. Help.

I've been using one for years. I usually play it by ear. Cut back the temp by 25 degrees, and check in between 1/2 -3/4 of the usual cooking time. I still have a tendancy to overbake my cookies.

If you want actual recipes, there are books you can buy on convection cooking, Try a search on or amazon, you get some really great deals on used books, and the shipping is only a couple of dollars at the book rate.

Here are some sites with tips for convection cooking -
