About this Cook
Grew up doing 4-H for 9 years. Loved to bake from early age. I enjoy watching others enjoy my creations and serve in my church doing hospitality (ie. food!!) I have recently discovered the fun of canning my own jams, syrups and salsas. What a blast! Have entered in 4 IN State Fairs and 3 county fair. Have done VERY well at all of them. This spring will be my 5th season of selling at farmer's markets. My company is Robbybaby's Kitchen. I produce my products locally and sell @ Your Local Deli & Market in Indy and TeaPots n Treasures in Cumberland. Business is good and God is great! I give Him glory for all He has blessed me with!
My favorite things to cook
I've been making gourmet-flavored suckers and candies since 1982. Also known for my banana bread. If you can put it in a loaf pan - I can make it! From meatloaf to breads. Love to experiment with different flavors. I screw up on occasion....laugh at myself and learn for the next time! Just purchased my Kitchen Aide stand mixer for Christmas - and having so much fun. Making meringue cookies, danish, breads.. What an adventure!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up watching my mom trying variations on box mixes - trying to outsmart her picky husband who always wanted made-from-scratch food. I've learned how to make something out of practically nothing - how far you can stretch a food dollar. I always shop at the cheaper grocery stores - but never skimp on flavor when it counts! Butter rules!
My cooking triumphs
Doing all the food for 2 ladies' teas at my church. Large group of women attended - it was my 1st venture and 1st trifle! Gotta love trifles!! Also winning awards at the state and country fairs for my jams, syrups, sauces, and breads. My company - Robbybaby's Kitchen in Indy....where I sell my award-winning jams, jellies, sauces and baked goods!
My cooking tragedies
Almost setting the stove and kitchen on fire making pies. Making the most beautiful orange colored suckers - but forgetting to put the flavor in! haha! Making and serving banana bread - then realizing that I forgot to add the sugar!

Mexican Wedding Cookies
I replaced the white sugar w/ powdered sugar. Used pecans, and added 1/4 c. diced maraschino cherries to the batter. So much fun!

Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing
I just made it with some sugar-free lemon jello. Came out beautiful - light yellow in color. I did forego the water and used 1/4 c heavy cream instead. Just makes more sense that way!

Butterscotch Bread Pudding
Awesome recipe! I did have to put my own 'spin' on it. Used wheat bread for the health factor......and bumped it up to AMAZING by substituting butterscotch chips for milk chocolate chips!! This is lick the pan and gotta make another one good!
