    Pizza toppings?

    I totally agree! Pepperoni and bacon are a great combination on pizza! I also love a lot of veggies. My husband is a big fan of mushrooms on his pizza. I agree though, I am NOT a fan of black olives.

    Brownie toppings and additions?

    My mother sometimes adds a little slice of butter on top of her warm brownies for a little added flavor. My dad likes to smear peanut butter on his brownie and let it melt in the microwave so the warm peanut butter serves as icing. I do sometimes add a little whip cream, chocolate chips and...

    Weird combinations in cakes

    My sister adds zucchini and applesauce to her cakes. It doesn't alter the taste, but it does make her cakes more moist. :) Personally, I have added applesauce to my cakes, and have had great success. :)

    Should eggs be room temperature before use?

    Honestly, I had never thought of this. That's a great question! I guess I have always just took my eggs directly from the refrigerator and put them into the mix. I've never let them sit at room temperature before using them. My recipes have always come out just fine without them being room...

    What's your favorite add-in for baking recipes?

    It depends on what I am making. I also like to add walnuts when I am making chocolate brownies. I sometimes like to add a cup of chocolate chips to my brownies as well to give that added chocolate-ness! :) When I am making cookies, I like to sometimes add an extra little dash of vanilla. I...

    Birthday Cakes for a limited budget

    You can really do a lot with box mixes. They are fairly inexpensive! I don't know your son's flavor preference, but I have a delicious recipe my family loves and it can be done using a box mix. You could buy a chocolate cake mix, instant oreo pudding, and whipped cream. Bake the cake as...

    What's Something You Bake That Reminds You of Back Home?

    Homemade chicken and noodles. My mother always makes her noodles homemade from scratch. As a little girl, I remember helping her lay out the dough all across our big kitchen table. We would have flour everywhere! I always loved helping her make them. Now, when I make them, I can't help but think...

    Where did you buy the marshmallow fondant? How did it taste? I really want to try it, but I really have no idea where to begin. Did you have to use a rolling pin to spread it out, or is it not that easy to stretch out? I really don't know where to start.

    Chocolate Chip Cookies Came From Sugar Cookies

    That is a very clever boy! Haha! I think cookies are fun because you can experiment and add new and exciting ingredients. You can add nuts, or choose not to. Chocolate chips, pieces of fruit, candy pieces, you name it! While the sugar cookie is a "basic" cookie, its fun to be creative and use...

    Storing You left over Cookies

    I usually store them in in either an air tight container or a ziploc bag. I like to put a small piece of bread in with them as well because it does help keep the cookies fresh. Just make sure your family knows why the bread is there. One time my niece came over and ate the bread out of the...
