Norah's tip:

Try this with different toppings, vary the nuts and wafers. You can pare your utility bills with efficient use of kitchen appliances. Over a period of time, the small savings will add up. Your oven can do double duty if you cook two items instead of one whenever possible. Roast two chickens at a time and save one for later use, or bake two pies and freeze one.
