Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Make infused water more flavorful by letting fruits steep in the water for at least two hours. It's also a good idea to let the infused water steep overnight in the fridge.



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.
