I never thought I could be good at baking, until I moved out of my parents house. Before my mom did all the baking and cooking, but once I was out of there it was up to me. Turns out I'm pretty great at it! I try new recipes as much as possible (economical problems) and every time I surprise myself by how delicious it tastes. My point here is, if you think you can't cook/bake, just try it! You could turn out to be one of the world's next greatest chefs! (:

Cream Pies!

Here is an image of a cream pie, banana to be exact! Baking a cream pie HOMEMADE is easier then it seems. Crust is baked with holes poked all around to prevent a crust from puffing up. Let the crust cool once baked. Whilr cooling make your filling, whether it is pudding from a package or made on the stove top. Once the crust is cooled pour the pudding that was just made into the pie right away so it can become solid (can be done in the oven to start and make cutting easier or straight into the fridge). After a few hours, the pie should be pretty solid and ready to eat. Add whipped cream too for an extra yummy taste!

Who says you can't have apple pie without apples? If you have zucchini use that instead in any recipe containing apples, it tastes just as good. It's a great way to get kids to eat the vegetables to.

arent these adorable...and don't be afraid to get creative with the batter. My suggestion, look around the kitchen for some type of fruit, candy, or ice cream topping. I once found turtle chocolates and threw them in. The cupcakes were so popular I found an easier way to make them, Chocolate chips, crushed peanuts, and caramel sauce
