Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Clueless about how to shop for watermelon? Choose one that doesn't have bruises or cracks, and feels heavy for its size. 



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.
