I like to think that every Thanksgiving could be the best one ever.  This month, as part of the Allrecipes AllStar Program, sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens and Campbell's, we are creating pinterest boards called Best Thanksgiving Ever.  I would be delighted should you decide to follow… MORE

I am not a stranger to Halloween Parties.  There is nothing I would have loved more this year than to have planned another one.  After all, the Grown Up Halloween Party I threw with my Daughter-in-Law a few years ago was a total blast, from planning and making the food to having the party… MORE

This turned out to be not only easy, but a very yummy dinner!  My parent's were back in town and on a pitt stop before heading back to their home.  I had a root canal done in the morning and wasn't really feeling up to anything elaborate in the kitchen not to mention anything that would make… MORE

I recently was accepted into the Allrecipes Allstar Program and one of our first assignments is to make and create recipes using Al Fresco products.  I'm far from a new user of Al Fresco.  I have a few recipes on my blog such as Spaghetti with Sausage and Simple Tomato Sauce, Mango Chipotle… MORE

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

I love blueberries and hadn't made muffins in quite some time so I started searching here on AR for some muffin recipes.  After all, some of the best muffins I have ever made come from this site!  (Like the Banana Crumb Muffin!)  I came across the recipe for Blueberry Cream Muffins.… MORE

I thought since its Easter and a lot of people will be making deviled eggs and such, it would be nice to share with everyone here at AR the recipe for Buffalo-Style Stuffed Eggs that I recently posted on my blog The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch.  These were delish - Grumpy and I both… MORE

Another breakfast post this week.  I've been craving eggs lately and decided to try the cute little individual baked egg cups.  Because I still can't wrap myself around an egg with the yolk not incorporated, I whipped mine up and added some peppers, onions, and diced up a triangle of the… MORE

Its been a long time since I've posted here!  I cook and blog but having time to do a lot is rough.  I just found out that part of the reason I've been so exhausted is my B-12 and Iron was way low and I am anemic.  Started the B-12 shots and supplements about a week and half ago and I am… MORE

I belong to this new site called Pinterest.  If you haven't heard of it yet, it is quickly becoming a big attraction to a lot of people I know with a lot of different interests....and it can become totally addicting!  On this site I came across Pioneer Woman's Penne ala Betsy.  It looked so… 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!
