A few days ago I was craving a coconut cream pie. I didn't have any eggs whites or a pie crust and I really didn't want to spend the time making a pie when I would eat a few slices and likely ending up tossing the rest. (I am basically the only sweet eater in my home.)   I browsed… MORE

I managed to make these brownies last night in between the pain. I went to dental to have some work done because I experienced sudden and kinda intense teeth sensitivity but the work caused a lot of pain in the muscles and tissues in my jaw and cheek.

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!
