My favorite things to cook
I really love making deserts but also love trying to find delicious low calorie main dishes to serve my family.
My cooking triumphs
Last year my daughter was wanting a specialized chocolate cake for her birthday. I told her I could make one for her, which would be unusual for our family because we usually just get store bought birthday cakes. I ended up creating what I called a Death by Chocolate Overdose Cake with four different layers of chocolate with a brownie base, a mousse filling topped with a dark chocolate cake and then covered with ganache icing! A chocolate lover's dream and plus all 4 of my kids exclaimed "Wow, mom it's better than a store bought cake!"
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 11 I was making a pumpkin pie for our family Thanksgiving dinner and yet somehow forgot to add in the sugar! Needless to say, it didn't taste too good without the sugar, but fortunetly my great-grandmother, who was a diabetic, enjoyed it!
