Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Never store sweet potatoes in the fridge - this will result in hard roots that don't taste so fine. To keep sweet potatoes fresh, keep them in a cool and well-ventilated place. Also, avoid them with onions as its gases can make sweet potatoes spoil and sprout faster.



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.
