Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Honey is best stored between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit or between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius.

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.
