Wow my day isn't over yet and I put myself through another recipe challenge....Caramel Apples. Well, I see some recipes use a few tbsp's of water or tbsp's of milk.....so what's the difference? Well, it's all about preference, really. I took 2 basic recipes.....Plain Caramel… MORE

Well, I finally did it. I took it upon myself to check out other baking mixes like Jiffy to see if it compares to their Sugar Cookie recipe....well as interchangeable as someone mention...there is no comparison that duplicates the recipe exactly per brand. Other then a fimilar taste.… MORE

Unbelieveable. I will never buy Loft house cookies from the local bakeries again. Thanks to the ladies talking on the Recipe Buzz a few nights ago....So Jiffy baking mix as a recipe on the large box for a cookie recipe. I'm totally pleased with the turn out and my family went to town. As well… MORE

About Me
I'm an active mom of 4 and married the love of my life. I'm a full~time certified care giver, part~time food blogger @ http://the7upexperience.com , avid & obsessed novice photographer. I love allrecipes and pretty much an addict. I'm also a new member to Banana Belt Photography Club that's local to my community, and an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador. And have stamped allrecipes on me for life. The site has opened up my eyes to so much more then just recipes. I'm proud to be a member of this site and my love, passion & learning other recipes from other valued members has really broaden my horizens.
My favorite things to cook
Asian, Mexican, Multi-cultured foods, Low-fat, Low-sugar, Stews, casseroles, slow cooker meals and baking......Everything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Funny but true: Cooking traditions men sit in the recliner and women in the kitchen...lol My family is always in the kitchen. My sister and her family, my parents and my family celebrate Christmas in January. Due to distance and work related jobs. Every year we plan what we are having ahead of time. Our tradition is usually food we've had abroad growing up overseas. Normally with Asia influences. It's always a special treat when we normally don't make the dishes often throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Unknown to me when I came up with a chicken and dumpling recipe of my own, my father was floored & delighted and told me it tasted just like his mother's.......My mom dropped her jaw because it was better then her's. It's a staple with my husband and kids.
My cooking tragedies
I had found a recipe for a Pretzel Pie(like Pecan Pie), thought it looked good and I didn't follow the recipe when it said unsalted pretzels. I just grabbed the normal stuff with the salt on it, made the pie, and my dad and husband were painting with thrist. And making weird pickle sour expressions, when I realized the pie was over salted. Oopppss! I never made it again.
