Do not forget to add your baking soda and baking powder! I turned an elegant and light tasting cake into dense brownies today. I made the Dark Chocolate I recipe from this site previously and I think it is a fabulous cake. I haven't made it in many months so I decided to make it today. When… MORE

I tried to make jumbo cupcakes this weekend and I even purchased the Wilton jumbo cake papers. I didn't have a jumbo pan, but for some reason I thought I could just set the papers on a baking sheet, pour the batter in and bake! Very wrong! They overran into each other and it was a mess.… MORE

I want you all to meet my precious cat, Haylee. She follows me around the house all day and she takes naps when my daughter does and she also sleeps all night with me. She has a great personality and I love her very much! MORE

I have made this strawberry cake several times. I can't recall the recipe off hand, but it is a white cake mix with a box of Jello added to it. I always frost the cake with chocolate icing. My dilemma is that I am making this cake for my husband to take to work tomorrow and … MORE

This is my new Kitchen-Aid Artisan mixer in "Green Apple." I searched high and low for this specific color until I  found it. It is great being able to mix and walk away to get more or put away ingredients. I can't believe I have gone so long without one of these, what was I waiting… 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!
