Are you making multiple recipes and have only one oven? If you’re baking something and the two recipes have a temperature difference of only 25-50 degrees, there is absolutely no need to bake them separately. Choose the lower temperature and bake away; it’ll achieve the same result, and you’ll speed up your cooking and save energy, too. Just a few minutes before the baking time is up, turn off the oven and leave the door closed. The residual heat is hot enough to keep cooking whatever you’re roasting, baking or toasting inside.
