Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
When making sandwiches, add lettuce last minute so that it would still be fresh and crunchy when consumed.
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.
