- Maximize oven space and save energy by planning cookies that cook at the same temperature. You don't want to keep fluctuating your oven temperature or you 1) waste electricity and 2) don't bake evenly.
- What mixing/rolling can be done while baking? Can you get all of the recipes that need the mixer out of the way first? Do your best not to be stuck waiting for one thing, unable to do anything else.
- Make a list! As supportive as family and spouses are, there are only so many times they will go to the 24-hour supermarket - if you even have that luxury. Do a kitchen inventory and make lists of what you need from the grocery store, the club store, and the kitchen warehouse. Bonus Points: If you do this early enough, you can order some ingredients/hardware cheaper online!
- If you are baking on the go, at a friends house or otherwise, know where the heaters and hot air vents are. And where all their kitchen equipment is. And what you need to pack. This advice comes from having to make several last-minute adjustments, letting batter sit too long, being unable to salvage cookies without a Silpat, and losing almost 5 lbs of chocolate because I didn't realize I put my supplies on the furnace. Just like driving a car - do a full cockpit check before you start driving.
