This summer I tasted the most delicious ice cream pumpkin pie. This pie was so amazing I had two huge slices and I couldn't stop thinking about it since. I found several recipes for it on the internet but I had this other idea in my head. I wanted to make it with my own… MORE

While browsing our local cake and candy making specialty store the other day, I found myself eyeing the bags of crisp rice again. They are in the chocolate and candy making section of the store. The crisp rice is exactly what you find inside a bar of Nestle Crunch. The bag was only $2.99 so I… MORE

Recently, someone on the recipe exchange asked for recipe recommendations for ice cream so they could break out their ice cream attachment to make ice cream. I have been making ice cream with sweet success for the last couple of months. When I read the request, I was thinking about how I have… 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 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

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

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!
