About this Cook
I amd a wife and mother of 6, live and play in San Diego, CA. I am an avid trail rider and own 2 horses, I used to be a professional photographer, but now I am just a Mamarazzi ;) I love to craft with just about anything including food, so cake decorating is definitely a favorite hobby. I just like making everything I do a little extraordinary!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken tikka masala, English Toffee, anything with black truffel and flourless chocolate cake (If I have to choose)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorites....I have strong traditions with how I roast my turkey and I like to serve food all throughout the day....then there is the Christmas toffee (my kids go crazy if I don't make it) and cookies to decorate as a family
My cooking triumphs
wine reductions for steaks...they are so complex!
My cooking tragedies
there have been some doozies, but my husband, bless his heart, will eat it no matter how bad it kids however, are a little more honest.

Spooky Homemade Marshmallows
While I give the texture and ease of making this recipe 5 stars, I did not like the flavor and neither did my marshmallow loving 3year old. I personally think the flavoring needs to be increased by another 2 tsps. I am going to try it again with the additional flavoring as suggested in another recipe and see how it turns out! They were much easier to work with than expected which was a plus! Made some really cute hearts I plan to see if they taste better dipped in chocolate.
