Jumbo Birthday Cupcakes!
About this Cook
I am 20 years old and a political science major at UNC-Wilmington. I've been cooking since the minute I was able to stand in a chair in my grandma's kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I'm up for anything, but my favorite things to cook are all sorts of desserts. I love not only making them taste good, but making them look at good as they taste!
My favorite family cooking traditions
It would have to be helping my grandmas in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Especially now in their older age, they both really depend on me to show up very early and help out! And I just love being in the kitchen with family :).

Five Minute Ice Cream
This is SO delicious and so easy! So far I have made peach, blueberry, watermelon, and banana. Can't wait to try more flavors! I've tried both the blender and food processor and DEFINITELY use a food processor if you have one, it turns out a much better consistency.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
This is SO good. I make it at least once a week, my household loves it so much. I made two giant pans of it for Christmas for my entire extended family and there wasn't a bite left! I use Panko bread crumbs on top because they get crispier, Italian flavored or plain, whichever I have on hand.

Oaty Cereal Bars
These are SO good! I could hardly stop eating them. Neither could the 8 year old I babysit who will not eat anything! She took a bite, and after a moment of suspense...she belted out "That's the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it!" LOL. I used Golden Graham cereal because that's what I had in the house, and also boiled the sugar and honey longer as one user suggested. I think I went too long though, because they set up to be hard as a rock. That can easily be remedied though by a few seconds in the microwave. Be careful! The sugar mixture can get VERY hot when reheated! I will be experimenting with different kinds of cereal & next time will only boil the sugar and honey for about 1 minute instead of 3.
