This month I tried some new things for lunch and dinner. Since joining the AllStars program with AllRecipes I have branched out of my comfort zone. I'm loving the monthly tasks of making new recipes I wouldn't typically search for.  This month I set out to purchase a variety of Ore-Ida… MORE

I love comfort food. I don't love the effects from comfort food, especially over a long winter. Also, in case you haven't noticed I love baking and I need to save room for that stuff.   The Healing Cabbage Soup is a great comfort food without all of the calories. It has become a new… MORE

I started packing more lunches or snacks on the go recently. I always took snacks for myself and our four year old, but sometimes when we are shopping or running errands we would get hungry and my four year old would beg me to buy her pizza or popcorn. I recently found a neat pink sandwich… 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!
