Giant Ding Dong Cake
About this Cook
I am happily married, a mother to 3 boys, and my grocery bill is higher than my mortgage.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything... lots of experimenting.
My cooking triumphs
Love desserts.
My cooking tragedies
The first steak I made for my husband when we were married... it was horrific. I marinated it in Dale's steak sauce overnight. It was salty, chewy and these days we refer to it as the "Steak Jerky".

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread
Delicious. I made muffins, and added raisins and chopped pecans, and applesauce instead of oil. I also added 1/4 cup more whole wheat flour because the mixture seemed extremely moist... and it was perfection. I sprinkled the tops with some oats, cinnamon and a little bit of turbinado cane sugar, and the muffins were gone within an hour. Not too sweet, moist and very flavorful. I will definitely be making this again.

Honey Baked Chicken I
This was bad. All I could taste was egg yolk, and it was disgusting. I drenched it with honey mustard before serving, and still the overpowering taste of egg came through. Yuck. What a waste of chicken.

Peanut Butter Bars I
LOVE these. I use one stick butter and only one cup of powdered sugar. I use one and a half cups Smuckers natural peanut butter and they are delicious. I also add a 1 tsp of butter to the chocolate mixture instead of more PB- it turns out fantastic, all chocolaty and prefect. I have made this a million times and get rave reviews every time.
