Mastering Baking - All about Baking - Oven Temperatures - Part 1

It has always been a herculean task for a person like me to find an information in the Internet Ocean especially regarding baking ...It has millions of resources but not all at one place for me to refer ...
Be it Temperature setting, Fahrenheit to Celsius, Measuring Cup size, Teaspoon, Tablespoon what not....
Also where to find chocolate chips , baking pans, chocolate rice/strands, cheese in my city...Oh my god the list is endless

I thought I should dedicate a space just for this in my that this will be a reference for my future endeavours (That's a huge word) and for other amateur bakers like me :)

Each week I will try to take up a topic and collect information and put it that it will be useful for all of us :)
