Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
Want to make your peach drink a lot more flavorful? Throw in herbs or spices that complement peach's flavor profile. For herbs, basil, cinnamon basil and Mexican tarragon are great options. For spices, you can try adding cinnamon, cloves, ginger or vanilla.
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.
