Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Try to cut ingredients in the same size so that the kebabs would cook evenly. Tired of burnt wooden skewers? Soak them in water 30 minutes before using so that they'll hold up better against the fire.

Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
