Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Using bananas and raspberries on your fresh fruit salad? Make sure to add them just before serving. Bananas can get mushy and brown if left exposed for too long, while raspberries can get limp and soft.   



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.
