Use Baking to Warm the House

With all the baking about to be done, don't forget to lower the heat in the house a bit or bake during the colder part of the day (mornings), and after you're done baking and have turned off the oven, leave the oven door ajar to let the left over heat warm up the house. No sense keeping it inside just to keep the oven warm!

Obviously do not do this if there are little ones running around.

I love this. I have done this for years. I am baking something every single day in the winter. Anything to keep my gas bill low.

I give my oven a good "Spring Cleaning" in the winter. I close the door, set the dial to "self-clean" and let it do it's thing. Believe it or not, the machine generates enough heat to keep the kitchen warm for quite a while.
