In many recipes (including my tips below), bringing ingredients to room temperature is imperative to the success of the recipe. However, during my recent vacation to Central America, I have recognized that room temperature to one is another’s heat wave. :) Therefore, it seems that a call for definition is in order! With that, I will specify that “room temperature” is 65-68 degrees–no matter where you find yourself on the globe. So, be sure to get yourself a thermometer and continue baking.
