Sometimes I will make a recipe that I'm all excited about only to be disappointed.  That happened to me tonight with the Szechwan Shrimp recipe here on AR.  When I reviewed the recipe I gave it a 3 stars.  Basically because I was able to eat it but I didn't enjoy it all that much.  Grumpy… MORE

This recipe has been all the rage on AR  recently and I decided I had to find out if they were all "that".  Well, I must say, they are all "that".  These were the most perfect little bites I had eaten in a long while.  The coolest thing about them?  No eggs.  Just butter… MORE

Yes, I love tofu.  Did you hear me?  :)  I totally love it.  I think I am addicted.  I bet you can't guess what my problem has been in the past with tofu? If you guessed Grumpy you were right!  The first time I wanted to cook make something with tofu I was met with "you better not… MORE

Tonight I actually had plans for dinner.  The first night this week I knew what I was going to make when I got home but then found out I didn't have one of the key ingredients!  Ugh.  So, I quickly came to AR where I had been looking at chicken and pasta recipes earlier today.  I had decided… MORE

Sometimes you want something good but your body doesn't need it.  Sometimes you still have it anyway and then you regret it.  This won't happen with these donuts!  You can have your cake (donut) and eat it too!  (pun intended!).  While nothing beats a real deep fried cake donut this b MORE

Can a dessert that looks this delicious be good for you?  Sure can!  :)  When it's a Cooking Light recipe it can't hurt.......as long as you don't eat the whole pie! Last June Grumpy and I celebrated our anniversary late.  Both of us let it slip right by us without realizing it.  So, to… MORE

That question always comes to mind on weekends in our home.  Not too long ago I held a breakfast/brunch contest with my newsletter subscribers.  Another blogging friend and myself made recipes that were submitted and we chose 1 sweet and 1 savory winner.  I was pretty nervous about this… MORE

I'm sure that doesn't surprise many though!  What couple ever totally agrees on everything?  lol.  Well, when it comes to food I am much more adventurous than Mr. Grumpy.  One thing you can count on is we both enjoy eating pancakes on weekend mornings.  For the most part we have them only MORE

this photo is #2 on allrecipes.com today!  Thank you AR readers for your votes! The first time I ever had a mojito was last August, when Grumpy and I went on our cruise. While vacationing this last week we have had a few of these and it has brought back memories and a yearning to go ba 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!
