After a lot of searching all over for something "special" to make this weekend, I came across the a recipe here on AR for Blueberry Stratta.  I changed it up some and omitted the blueberry sauce.  Made it a little richer and more of a comfort food by adding heavy cream and crystallized sugar.… MORE

It's been a while since I've posted here.  I've been busy and just plain tired and  I haven't had a whole lot of energy.  However, I needed to make something for a picnic a few weeks ago and decided that a Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad sounded good!  I got the idea when a friend of mine made… MORE

I've been so good on my diet that I haven't really been making much in the baking department.  Last night I made some of the Mayonnaise Cupcakes for my nephews who I am visiting this week (and supervising!).  That was one of their requests and the other request is the Banana Crumb Muffin… MORE

Growing up in a home that was part vegetarian and part non vegetarian (mom the veg and dad not!) I experienced a lot of different foods in a lot of different ways.  I learned at an early age that food with flavor didn't always have to have meat in it!  One way mom would boost our… MORE

Never in my life did I think I would drink booze in the AM.  ;)  Seriously!  LOL.  However, I decided I wanted to try making a Bloody Mary on my own.  My friend is a bartender and she was making this drink for people one night and let me try a little taste - and I… MORE

I have been looking for an Eggplant with Garlic Sauce recipe for a while.  I can't believe one was sitting here on AR and I never found it before now!  Ever since the first time I had Eggplant with Garlic Sauce I have had cravings for it.  I finally bought some baby eggplant… MORE

Yes, this is the hardest thing for me, a baker to do.  Go without carbs.  I love to bake and you can't bake without there being carbs!  However, for the next 2 weeks Grumpy and I are following Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet.  We are on Day 3 and still surviving!  I… MORE

The answer is YES.  They really can.  These muffins made me really homesick.  We are only 3 months into our new home and area...also meaning new jobs.  In my last job I loved to bake and take muffins to work to share with the faculty and students.  When I made these muffins earlier this… MORE

About Me
I am a home cook who works full time and have been a blogger on my own site, Grumpy's Honeybunch, since 2007. I love to experiment and create in the kitchen. Sometimes good, sometimes not so good, but always fun! My one place I am not the best at is the grill - and I leave that to Grumpy! Since I started using AR several years ago, my home life has changed a lot. We had to relocate for work purposes, My sons no longer live at home and its just Grumpy, me, and our 3 cats. I am a participant in the Allrecipes Allstar program and have had a great time with the challenges as well as the great people I have met through the Allstar program!
My favorite things to cook
I always was a baker but since I started blogging almost 5 years ago, I have also become a more experienced cook. We love pasta meals and especially Asian inspired meals. I love homemade candy although I'm not the best candy maker, I will still attempt it every so often. My very favorite sweet treat from this site is Brooke's Bombshell Brownies. I've taken the recipe and used it as a base to create several different brownie recipes, my favorite being "when life gets you down" brownie (chock full of Peanut Butter flavor) and a peanut butter caramel swirled brownie. Both recipes are on my blog grumpyshoneybunch.com.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Summer fish frys at my aunt and uncles home. Homemade fudge and popcorn on Saturday nights while a child! When my boys were younger Friday night was homemade pizza and movie night and some of my most special memories are baking cookies with Nanny. I have every one of her "special" cookie recipes on file and when feeling nostalgia hit I will bake one of her recipes.
My cooking triumphs
My best compliment ever - a cheesecake I made was described to be "better than Juniors!" The pumpkin fudge recipe on this site that I reviewed at 5 stars....this is an awesome cooked fudge recipe. My son totally loves the fudge and so do I!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was first married, I made fudge. It didn't set up and I was too embarrassed to tell my hubby, so I hid it in the closet (no idea WHY I did such a thing!) and ended up forgetting about it. We came across it one day cleaning and I had to fess up, he had more of a laugh because I tried to hide it!
