I'm a mom and a wife. Both of which are my crowning achivements in life. I love making food that makes my family happy. I started out baking as a teenager and developed a love creating food that looks as good as it tastes.

Royal Coconut Cookies
These were great! I made them exactly according to the instructions. The only thing that I messed up on was under estimating how many oats I had on hand so I improvised using two original Quaker Oatmeal packets to make up the difference. Still wonderful! After the first batch I contemplated adding chocolate chips but decide they were just to good to mess with.

Braided Easter Egg Bread
I have to start by saying I'm a native New Yorker now living in the Midwest and the whole reason I made this recipe is bc one review said it taste like the bread you get in the NYC bakeries. This bread was so great! I can't find anything like this out here and I'm so greateful to be able to make my own now. I read lots of other reviews and I did make some minor changes bc of the other reviews. I upped the sugar to 1/3 of a cup and next time I think I'll go for 1/2 cup (personal preference) I also skipped the butter and did an eggwash in place of it. I think it made the breads presentation. Finally I checked my bread at 20 mins and took it out at 25 mins and it was perfect! Thanks so much for sharing! It's like having a little piece of home!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie
This was really enjoyable. I made mine with skim milk (that's what we had) and I used splenda in place of the sugar. Everything worked out great. The best part was when my 3 year old tried it not only did she love it! She thought it was icecream! Woohoo! Healthy homemade icecream! Thanks for sharing.
