Many of you may have seen my recent photos of cookie sandwiches. I make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, press M&M's into the tops and sandwich together using buttercream icing. In the photos below, you will see that I use pre-frozen homemade cookie dough, which I freeze into… MORE

These are much like to cookie sandwiches found at the Great Cookie Company in the malls across America. I remember close to my due date with my daughter four years ago and enjoying one of these "doozies" as they call them at the cookie store. I would get one each time I went to the mall back… MORE

I have used the "Lemon Poppy Seed Bread" recipe from AllRecipes before. I enjoyed it, but I ended up throwing most of the bread away. It was a little dense and the orange juice glaze crystalized on top after a few days. I just got a brand new bread pan that I have been dying to use, so I… 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

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

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

Recently, after seeing a photo of someone who made hot fudge sauce, I thought I would give it a try. I never thought to make this before! I decided to try Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce from this site.   I made the recipe as written and it was good, but after a few bites, I found it tasted very… MORE

I volunteered to bring the sweets to a Fourth of July backyard barbeque/swim party. I recently found a small, locally owned cake specialty store in San Diego called, "Do It With Icing." While browsing their large selection of unique cookie cutters, I came across one shaped like the United… MORE

How I made homemade peanut butter cups:   1) Melt milk chocolate and using a paint brush, paint the chocolate in the bottom and up the sides of the cup and allow to dry.   2) Once the cup is dry, make peanut butter mixture. I have tried many, but I highly prefer  the… 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!
