Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

To make sure your steaks grill to perfection, take them out of the fridge 20 to 30 minutes before popping them on the grill. This would result in juicier steaks that are evenly cooked.

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.
