Baking in an unfamiliar kitchen

I don't really have all the ingredients for baking here, so I found a recipe on the web that uses frozen puff pastry instead of making my own. And I made apple strudel. The recipe includes graham cracker crumbs and a few almonds along with apples, dried cranberries, and dried cherries. I liked it, and the guests also seemed to like it.

The first course was squash soup with dried mushrooms. The second course was roast chicken with salad made from snow peas, baby bok choy, lettuce, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and the usual other ingredients. You can see the salad in the background of the soup pic.

I find baking to be the hardest thing in a kitchen I'm not used to. Especially in terms of oven temps.
