I'm an Indiana girl. Even if I move from here one day, I'll always be an Indiana girl. A couple of counties north of where I live there is a man-made lake. On one section of it's shores there is an amusement park called Indiana Beach. We are "beach challenged" in the Midwest. The… MORE

My cooking triumphs
I taught myself to make Danish Pastry about 20 yrs. ago. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and ohhh so yummy !!
My cooking tragedies
The very first time I tried to make bread. . . I baked clever little bricks. They LOOKED like bread. . . very deceiving. . .played with them in the back yard (I was 15. . . the dogs "fetched" them, but even they couldn't eat them.)

Calypso Bars
Delicious! I had been wanting to make these since the picture was posted. The only change I made was to use brewed coffee in the date/chocolate mixture instead of water. Loved these!

Peppy's Pita Bread
I don't have a bread machine so I made it by hand. Used honey instead of sugar and safflower oil instead of veg oil. I let rise after mixing, used parchment paper on my baking sheets and let them rise on the parchment after rolling out. So FUN to watch them puff up in the oven (through the oven window, with the oven light on). When split there is a perfect pocket inside there. Taste is superior to any store bought pita I've ever eaten (infact, I thought I didn't like pita bread. . .turns out I DO!) Thanks!
