Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Make a healthier version of your slow cooker dessert by substituting oatmeal flour  for regular flour. You can make your very own healthy oatmeal flour by grinding old fashioned rolled oats in a food processor.

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.
