Mulled Wine (Kitchen Confidante)

Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
If you want to indulge in an Ulster Fry but don't want all the calories, you can make an "Ulster Bake" instead. Rather than frying everything, but all the ingredients in a baking sheet (you can crack the eggs on a ramekin) and pop in the oven until done. Enjoy all the flavors with less grease!
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.
