roasting vs baking

KaimukiMan | Feb 24, 2008 10:07 PM

Why do you bake a ham, but roast pork? Turkeys are roasted, casseroles are baked. Apparently onions can be baked or roasted. They all go in the oven with the door closed and at the same general temperatures. Is there really a difference between baking and roasting, or is it more a common usage thing?
