About this Cook
My name is Rhonda and a lot of things in my life have changed in the last year. I have found out that I am soy allergic as well as gluten and lactose intolerent. For me, it is like starting from scratch on cooking and eating... I am an artist who is the happiest when creating something new. I love making stained glass window, fused glass items, blowing glass beads, one stroke painting, photography, crocheting, making jewelry, scrapbooking, felting, making soaps, bath bombs, and bubble pucks. I am always up for learning new arts and appreciate other artists work and always love owning one of a kind art!!! My friends say my taste is eclectic....hmmmm...sure hope they mean that in a good way!!! LOL
My favorite things to cook
I have always loved baking, and I was born with a wicked sweet tooth acquired from my Grandmother. My love of food has changed thanks to my allergies but perhaps I will manage to make many new receipes that will bring the love of food back to me.
My cooking triumphs
Any receipe that achieves being devoured in one sitting is a success or triumph in my book, of course becomes a keeper!!! Usually, I end up tweeking it adding more spices for more flavor because food that bursts in your mouth is what it is all about for me!!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn
MMMMMMMmmmmmm.....this is so good!!! My son does not like sugary treats but he loved this!! Yes, it is a little work but well worth it. I measured out the popcorn into cups and thought, Wow, that's a lot of popcorn!! Then made the carmel coating as directed but felt the popcorn was not coated well enough, so I made a second batch of coating and poured it on at it's first 15 minute stirring....My husband agreed that it looked and tasted sooo much better, and yes we must sample as we go!! I had no problems with separating the popcorn, we had four pans in the oven at once, we would take out one dump it in a huge bowl, stir and dump it back on the pan and back in the oven, each time you stirred the popcorn it was less adherred to each other, when time was up it was already separated just needed spread on the counter, then try and not eat it....yeah right, yummy!!!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding
This was excellent!!! I am lactose intolerant so instead of milk I tried Almond Breeze and I doubled the Hershey's cocoa because so many reviews said it needed more. I microwaved mine in two minute increments, three times, using a wisk in between to mix the pudding, for a total of 6 minutes, then added the butter and vanilla!! With Almond Breeze it tasted a lot like a nutty candy bar chocolate. I then made a batch using So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk. It seemed way too thin so I added another tablespoon of cornstarch, but whoa la at 6 minutes in the microwave it was very thick but after adding the butter and vanilla it was a very nice consistancy. Made with the Coconut milk it seemed more like the name brand cook and serve pudding!! Both work very well for those out there like me that are lactose intolerent!!!! Making it another choice for a great dessert or when you really need chocolate!!!
