Holiday Sweets & Treats
About this Cook
I am a true Chocoholic. I love to bake, for some people it's stressful but once I tie on my apron and step into the kitchen, pick up my mixer and begin to bake, I'm in another place. A focused & quiet place.
My favorite things to cook
Cake, beef with okra & pasta. Oh and shrimp with curry sauce on a bed of rice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Belizean food
My cooking triumphs
I was able to replicate my Mom's famous Shrimp & Rice recipe!
My cooking tragedies
I can never forget, the time I made Corn Chowder for Thanksgiving. It was very runny and NO ONE would even go near it. I loved the recipe and thought it would be a nice deviation from the norm. Needless to say never attempted to make it again.

Lemon Pie I
I first made the filling based on the original Brandi(the poster's) recipe. But, I like lemony things, so I followed MommyfromSeattle's suggestions. I added part RealLemon juice & part fresh squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest and one teaspoon of lemon extract(more made it too lemony for our tastes) & a little yellow food coloring. The pie had a great, light and summery taste. Will make again soon. Thanks Brandi for such a quick and delish dessert.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
It was yummy and filling! I first followed the steps and the original recipe. I did swap out the sugar for the only substitute I had which was Truvia. I added chopped Kale too. It didn't affect the flavor at all. I did follow the suggestions of other reviewers and puréed the oats prior adding the other ingredients. It was smooth and very filling. I was full until lunch time! Will make it as my new go to breakfast. Thanks Astrophe.

Donut Muffins
I baked the first batch for my coworkers as a tester, they were so easy to make that I woke up early and whipped up a second batch before work. I think the batter needs a little more flavor for my tastes but it's yummy as is. My changes: I used cinnamon because I forget to buy nutmeg. With the first batch I forget to melt the butter for the batter, that produced the same end result but, the batter resembled more of a normal lumpy muffin textured batter. I have an electric oven, so I had to rescued the baking time to 15 minutes max. I generously sprayed my pan with Professional grade Pam but they kinda stuck a little, a little nudge with the pairing knife popped em right out. I kept the butter warm during the dipping process(10 seconds in the microwave), and I noticed the cinnamon/sugar mixture stuck better to the muffin. I used my mini muffin tin and ended up with 26-28 minis after filling each 1/2 way. My pan makes mini muffin/baby cupcakes(lol). My coworkers gobbled up the muffins & my sons loved them. Thanks Dianne!
