While it is only April here in Upstate New York, it has not felt like it for most of the month.  On Monday we had temps as high as 89!  While we did cool down some, today we are supposed to be close to 80.  So, while it may be early to be thinking about the beach in NY, this year's weather… 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

We have decided that this year we will go to Alexandria Bay for the fireworks over Boldt Castle.  I have lived in this area all my life (am 47 this year!) and have never been to fireworks at the Bay.  I am looking really forward to going!  What are you going to do? I've been busy.  Busy… MORE

I never really thought of a Mango Lassi as a breakfast drink, but really, what is it?  Its just another version of a smoothie to me.  I really love the recipe on here for Mango Lassi II.  Usually I adjust the amount of sugar to the sweetness of the mango.  The mango I used yesterday was… 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!
