Water can take a while to come to a boil, especially when there’s a lot of it. To help speed the process, simply cover your pot with a lid. This will keep the water warmer than if it were uncovered, so it will boil sooner.

When you’re roasting food and you want it to brown, it’s important that you don’t crowd your pan. Spread your food into an even layer; each piece should lie flat against the pan and there should be a bit of space between the pieces. If there’s too much food to fit comfortably on one baking sheet, then divide the food between two baking sheets – a big pile of food will take forever to cook and may never turn brown and caramelize.
