My cooking triumphs
Made a wedding cake and 75 lemon meringue cupcakes for a wedding without an assistance. Graduating Culinary School
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list, but lets just say you should always make sure your sugar and salt are not directly next to each other...

Doggie Birthday Cake
This is a great recipe for dogs! I did make a few changes to it though that are not drastic and really don't require any extra work. I changed the flour to rice flour as it is easier to digest for dogs and I cut the amount of carrot in half and instead added in half of a mashed banana. I also baked them in a cupcake pan so it would be a small cake for my dog because she has a sensitive stomach. I also added a frosting made of fat free Greek yogurt and peanut butter. with a tiny bit of honey. She devoured it!

Boiled Bagels
Great recipe! I used someone else's suggestion of putting molasses in the water instead of sugar, and the outsides came out crisp and brown. The insides are chewy and tasty. I used a heavy duty baking stone when baking mine. It took around 30-35 minutes just like the recipe said. I also separated the dough into 8 even pieces instead of 12 and the bagels came out the size you would find at a store. Keep in mind that the bagels are going to pretty much double in size both in height and diameter when put into the simmering water so don't worry if they look a little on the small side after proofing. I just may never buy bagels again! I like to get a nice piece of asiago, shred it, and put it on as a topping, The raw ingredients are so much cheaper then paying for bagels. It just takes a little bit of time, but is a very simple recipe to follow. Having made this recipe at least 10 times now, I must add that you will likely need to add more flour when kneading the dough. I usually knead mine in a Kitchenaide mixer and slowly sprinkle in flour till the dough comes together and is firmer because it will be wet and sticky at first which is not what you want...

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
WOW! This is the best recipe of apple pie I have ever made. I made my own pie crust and used this recipe for the filling/topping. The only small change that I made was that I added cinnamon to the heated brown sugar mixture that you pour on top. I feel that an apple pie needs cinnamon but that is a personal preference. Other than that, it is awesome! I got rave reviews at Thanksgiving.
