Should I Be Hesitant to Bake Unlike Items in the Same Oven?

Velda Mae | May 19, 2010 05:47 AM

I've often read that it's more energy efficient to bake multiple items in the same oven rather than running the oven for an hour for a single purpose. This logic makes sense to me for something like roast chicken and baked potatoes but I'd be afraid to bake cookies and roast chicken at the same time for fear my cookies would absorb the flavor of the chicken. Is my fear legit or am I worrying for nothing?
