Churro Balls
Meringue II
About this Cook
I'm a SAHM to a 1 year old, and LOVE baking. I'm a pretty good cook, but my desserts are fab. I always keep a homemade sweet in the house for everyone to snack on.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite thing to do, but I can really cook anything. From steak to lasagna, I like to do it all so our menu stays varied. I have a toddler, so it's important for me to make him healthy food, but for everyone else, I like to try different types of cuisines- Mexican and Italian are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, I always make the sides and desserts, while my mom makes the turkey. Also, on Christmas, we never make turkey or ham, but like to make something different- it's too close to Thanksgiving to do a huge turkey/ham dinner all over again!
My cooking triumphs
My first attempt at lemon meringue pie came out gorgeous and tasted great- I was seriously scared it would be a disaster, but it was perfect.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at key lime pie (one of my favorite desserts) was disgusting- much too tart, and it clumped on me so I had to strain it. Funny enough, every key lime pie after that has been beautiful.

Cranberry Walnut Bread
It's ok, not that moist or flavorful. The crust is nice though. I added ginger, rum, vanilla and orange extracts, used half brown sugar and half white, and a pinch of salt and it *still* wasn't all too flavorful.

Homemade Tomato Sauce II
Very good basic recipe that can be altered to suit your tastes. I used only 1.5 cups water, which made it the perfect consistency for me.

Classic Waffles
Pretty good. I think I'll add a bit more salt next time, they didn't have much flavor (it's not like you can tell if you use syrup though).
