Avoiding Oven Messes
There’s nothing more delightful than a hot, bubbling casserole on a cold winter’s night—unless you’re the one left to clean up the overflow on the oven floor. Next time, place the baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet before putting it in the oven. It will catch any spills and keep pot holders sauce-free when you remove the finished dish. (For even easier cleanup, line the baking sheet with foil.) Try this with juicy cobblers and pies, too.
If your dark circles aren’t quite this adorable, you don’t have to grin and bear it. Try these (en)lightening strategies to minimize them.
