Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:

Bought too much chicken? Divide them in one-meal sized packs before popping them in the freezer. This would make it easier to thaw one bag at a time when you need chicken for a recipe.  


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.
