Turkey Day!
My cooking triumphs
My first cheesecake when I was 19;-)
My cooking tragedies
When I was 10 I tried to make my own Nestle Crunch Bar...mixed chocolate milk & rice crispies...made several shallow trays (the size of crunch bars) out of foil and placed it in the freezer. The tray leaked into the freezer down into the fridge and all over anything in it's path. My mom was not happy about my cooking creativity...LOL

Quick Fruitcake
This cake was super easy and quick to put together...I left out walnuts...;-) not a nut in cake fan...I added 2tsp of Rum Flavoring & 1tsp of Almond extract...I used an Angel Food cake pan and lined with greased cut to fit brown paper bag (better than wax paper)...My friends who normally don't like Fruitcakes are fans now:-)

My-Hop Pancakes
Very simple and delicious recipe. I also just let my batter rest for a few minutes (20mins) before hand to speed up this resting process I let my buttermilk and egg reach room temp before using. The addition of the lemon juice is pure genius! The lemon juice (citric acid) causes an exothermic reaction with the Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)....results...Bubbles! This makes for lots of fluffy airy pancakes...This is why I love's like being in chemistry class but with edible results:-)
