Keeping Food Warm
When I make pancakes or waffles, I keep the earlier batches warm in the oven. I turn the oven down to its lowest temperature and place a baking sheet or small pan in to warm. Then as I cook the pancakes, I place them on the baking sheet in the oven to keep them warm.
Another way I keep food hot longer is to microwave the plates or dishes (since they are not oven safe) I’m serving the food on for a few seconds before plating. Just be careful when removing the dish from the microwave, it is hot. This way I’m not putting hot food on a cold plate.
