What is the difference between "baking off" and "baking"? And "roasting off" and "roasting"? Is this just trendy jargon? ;o)
Or have I missed something, somewhere along the line? I've never seen "baking off" or derivatives in hard copy print, except in conjunction with contests, e.g., the Pillsbury Bake-Off. The term now seems to be quite prevalent in contexts not involving any competitions. And I've never seen "roasting off" anywhere until I saw it online today. Please help! ;o)
