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.
