Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
Crockpot works a lot like an oven. Pre-heating it around 20 minutes before you put in your ingredients matters a lot.
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.
