Hi, my name is Dana Johnson. Today, I'd like to share with you a couple tips of how to keep food hot in the oven without cooking it - without the continuous cooking of it, that is. And, first of all, for example, if you just want to keep a casserole nice and hot in the oven, but you don't want it to keep cooking, you'll want to keep it somewhere between 140 and 200 degrees, and you'll want to keep the lid on it. Now, for example, if you're using a baking dish that doesn't have a lid, by all means, just cover it in foil. Keep it sealed all the way around, make sure you hit all the edges. And so, none of the heat can really escape. Also, you can take - if you turn your oven off - you can actually take kitchen towels and wrap up your dish, which will actually keep the heat in, and not continue the cooking. And, keep it in your oven like this, and take another and put it on top. And so, those are a couple of very safe ways to do this. But also, please be aware that if you are cooking with meats, that you want to make sure that the temperature doesn't go below the temperature that it needs to be, so you don't run a risk of cross-contamination or growth of a bacteria. Again, always follow your safe handling instructions when cooking with meat. So, for recipes for some great oven casseroles, please see me at
