Train Cake
About this Cook
I love to entertain, so cooking is the best. My freezer is always ready to have guests and friends like to visit to see what we are eating that's new...and some old favorites.
My favorite things to cook
Spicy food! Southwestern eggrolls, anything mexican. The spicier, the better. Traditional home cooking with a twist. Add something new and we'll try it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making chocolate doughnuts with my Dad. The kids always had the holes, so yummy.
My cooking triumphs
My daughters' birthday cake. A train party with a choo choo cake. Marshmallow fondant made the train look wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Mac-n-cheese with onions. Hold them for anything else, not mac-n-cheese.

Mrs Espy's Enchilada Sauce
I did not care for this recipe. The texture was rough and the flavor was boring. Cumin and onion are must-haves for me.

Ricotta Gnocchi
This is a 30 minute or less recipe that the whole family will love! Delicious and super easy! Start the sauce while making the gnocchi and dinner is done. My pepper sensitive daughter didn't like the 1/2 tsp I put in there so I'll eliminate that next time but otherwise it's a keeper. Added 1/4 cup homemade alfredo sauce to the red sauce and pureed it a little. Really, only changes I made and it was excellent. Thank you Shelbi!

Ice Cream Cone Treats
I tried these with my large ice cream scoop (about 1/4 cup) and most overflowed. The one that had the last of the batter (maybe 3 Tbsp) came out perfectly. Next time I'll find a scoop that measures 3 Tbsp and use that to fill.
