Honeycomb, but has to alter it since I couldn't get all the ingredients.

Kalyn's Kitchen. The only thing I did really differently was that I don't have giant 1-cup muffin tins, so I used custard bowls instead. Anything that holds 1 cup and is both microwave and oven-safe will work. But subtract about 5 minutes from the cooking time if you're using glass!

My obsession with putting taco meat in everything continues! This one was pretty much a success, although very messy to eat (as I suppose most lasagnas are). Anyway, hope this inspires you to create your own 'taco' dishes! I got the idea for a pureed vegetable mixture from having dinner with a friend, who did it for fajitas.

The Chic Life, but I changed it up a bit -- my recipe seems a bit on the less-healthy side. What with the more butter and everything. Anyway, here it is.

This is the grilled cheese from the Kraft Singles commercials. It is also the grilled cheese I grew up with, only better, because we have a sandwich-press now. It's magical because it gets all flat and melty and perfect, the bread becoming the perfect foil for the cheese. Mmmmmm: cheese! I call it the white-trash grilled cheese because, in order to be its amazing self, it has to be made with ingredients that have virtually no redeeming nutritional value. Comfort food at its finest!

Mmmmm: so creamy, so good! This is what mashed potatoes should be like. They were fluffy and well-blended and delicious, with hints of the different flavours and textures blending together so well. Best mashed potatoes ever!

Pasta with sauce is kind of my weakness. Well, one of them anyway. This one turned out pretty darn good, although next time I'm going to add more salt and pepper. It's a sauce almost from scratch, so you can feel good about it!
This drink was smooth and creamy and delicious. If you like crem liqueurs, then this little treat is for you! It's supposed to be served in a martini glass, but since I didn't have one (as you can see from the picture) mine was poured into wine glasses.

These cookies were a huge hit with everyone who ate them! The cookie is a bit denser than a normal cookie but still feels somehow fluffy, and isn't as sweet as you think it would be being so crammed full of chocolate. They were a great success! The number of cookies you get really depends on how big you decide to make them; I got about 5 dozen, which is quite a lot. The secret is to use really good quality cocoa: it should be dark with a deep smell to it.

I may not be the first person in my family to go to University, and even if I don't finish my program I won't even be the first the drop out of graduate school...but I am the first one to make lemonade from scratch! Woo: I finally achieved something unique around here! I never thought I'd do something like this, but I found the recipe on the blog Babyfood Scoops and just had to try it! In case you're wondering: yes, making it from scratch really does make a difference.
