I was at the commissary a couple of days ago and I saw there was a large basket full of fresh kiwi. I got kiwi in the past, but I tend to forget about it. By the time I decide I want to do something with it, it is ready to toss. I like to keep my smoothies very simple. I am also not a fan of… MORE

I recently threw a birthday party for my daughter's 4th birthday. The color theme was pink and brown. I was exhausted by the time the party started as it took me three days ahead of time to prepare. Several batches of buttercream later, the party was ready and the guests began to arrive. MORE

I am preparing for my daughter's upcoming fourth birthday party. We decided to do a pink and brown theme again this year, but I wanted to use different pink and brown decorations and designs. I am still thinking about what I should make. We decided we would get pizza to eat, so that is… MORE

Anytime I have a chance to bake for others, I take it. I am basically the one person in my household who eats sweets. It isn't like I am going to bake an entire batch of cupcakes often because I end up eating as much as I can and throwing the rest in the trash. Recently, a playgroup that I… MORE

So, I got this idea in my head last year after Easter that I would like to start a new tradition after having way too much leftover candy. It was a lot of the same.....Snickers, Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars, Nestle Crunch, and M&M's. I love to eat sweets, but I was struggling to eat… MORE

Toasted Ciabatta Bread with Basil Pesto This makes a great snack, appetizer, or a side dish with pasta. It is very simple to make. There is a restaurant in my neighborhood called Tender Greens and they make something similar, although they grill their bread which is also a great alternative to… MORE

I finally found the perfect cookie recipe. I am partial to the Felix K. chocolate chip cookie recipe on here. I don't know about you, but I can only eat a couple of cookie before they start becoming stale and I end up tossing the rest of the cookies. Several months ago, I began to only… MORE

During my last trip to the commissary, I found a box of Fudge Mint Oreos. Each year during the holiday season, they come out with these delicious treats! I already had a bag of Hershey's mint chocolate chips in my buggy that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with, and I was about to put a… MORE

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua: http://www.youtube.com/user/HouseOfAqua/videos?sort=dd&flow=list&page=1&view=0
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
