I am getting quite frustrated.  I have tried may icing and frosting recipes on here and cannot find the perfect one I am looking for for my cut out cookies.  I work better with frosting I think than icing, because I used to a pastry bag.  I tried the sugar cookie frosting and… MORE

About this Cook
I am a wanna be professional baker, wife and mother of an active 3 year old son. My husband is a very picky eater, so I do not get to experiment very much with my cooking or baking with him, so I experiment with my friends and co-workers.
My favorite things to cook
Any sweet treats, from cookies, to cakes, to pies and other desserts.
My cooking triumphs
My Steeler Cake that I made for the 2009 Super Bowl. Everyone raved about it and I had finally found the perfect icing recipe for the whole thing.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes
I made these exactly to the instructions, but baked them instead of frying. They were a bit dry and could have used a sauce on them. But all in all, very good!!!

Mexican Zucchini Cheese Soup
I did add/modify, but this is a soup that is VERY adaptable. I added 32oz box of chicken broth and instead of the stewed tomatoes, I added 2 cans of Rotel and omitted the chiles. I had already shredded all of my zucchini for baking, so I added about 3 cups of shredded zucchini and a can of black beans (could have added 2 but only had one on had) for added protein. Instead of processed cheese (which would have melted better) I used shredded mexican cheese (about 4 cups), which did clump up some, but I still think it tasted great. Lastly, I omitted the cilantro since I didn't have it on hand. I LOVED this for our first fall day rainy weather soup!!!
