Recently, someone on the recipe exchange asked for recipe recommendations for ice cream so they could break out their ice cream attachment to make ice cream. I have been making ice cream with sweet success for the last couple of months. When I read the request, I was thinking about how I have… MORE

These are much like to cookie sandwiches found at the Great Cookie Company in the malls across America. I remember close to my due date with my daughter four years ago and enjoying one of these "doozies" as they call them at the cookie store. I would get one each time I went to the mall back… MORE

I have used the "Lemon Poppy Seed Bread" recipe from AllRecipes before. I enjoyed it, but I ended up throwing most of the bread away. It was a little dense and the orange juice glaze crystalized on top after a few days. I just got a brand new bread pan that I have been dying to use, so I… MORE

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua: http://www.youtube.com/user/HouseOfAqua/videos?sort=dd&flow=list&page=1&view=0
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
