So, I decided to follow one of Ms. P’s (Paula Deen) brownie recipes. (That should tell you right there, this is going to be G O O D!) Her Maggie’s Decadent Brownies found at Food Network.com sounded yummy, but I was also looking for a little different approach. So, I’ve changed just a little bit of her brownie recipe and added a little bit of my touch (peanut butter, coffee, vanilla ice cream and fudge syrup.); VIOLA! PB & Java Brownie Pie Sundaes!!!

My love of cooking has taken over. I was on the net one day and saw an ad for a recipe contest. I entered. Then, I entered another. Then another, and so on and when I won a contest... an entire year's worth of tomato products, I was hooked. Since then, I've entered many many different recipe contests. I have won a trip to New York, entries into cook-offs, a recipe published in a Kraft/Paula Deen cookbook and many food products and food related items. I enjoy cooking and entering recipe contests. I hope I spark an interest in others to create something they can be proud of.
I'm always getting more ideas from the internet. Wow, I remember not having the internet years ago. It's a God send and I'm trying to cover every inch of the food sites!! Join me in my quest to keep fresh ideas flowing and creating new and exciting dishes.
