Today this is just a quick food tip: DON'T OVERLOAD THE OVEN! It leads to poorly cooked, or burned, food.
Take for example the cinnamon buns I made recently for our early morning guests.
Since I awoke at 3 AM and did not seem able to drop immediately back to sleep I got up and went through the whole process of making cinnamon buns. By 5:30 there were two pans ready to go into the oven. One was a half sheet pan with fifteen buns on it. The other was a quarter sheet pan with seven buns on it.
Because I was finally beginning to want to go back to bed, I decided I would cook them both at the same time. I put the half sheet pan on the top rack and the quarter sheet pan on the lower rack. Bad idea.
A second bad idea was to set the oven timer for the amount of time the recipe called for the buns to cook. I should have set the timer for five minutes LESS and then checked them. Well, buns are supposed to be nice and brown. I can say that these were brown all right...
