Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

When cooking potatoes, start with cold water instead of putting the spuds directly into a pot of boiling water. Starting spuds in hot water results in uneven cooking.

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.
