On an antique tractor ride
About this Cook
Retired Actuary. Spend most of my time woodworking (including many projects for my church), playing with antique tractors, church, baseball and cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Nothing beats a well made homemade soup on a cool day. I have several favorite soups I have been perfecting over the years.

Arrabbiata Sauce
This is a great sauce. Yes, it is spicy, but that's how I like it. I added some capers and olives and that made it more like a puttanesca - but, in my opinion, that is good thing. It was like a puttanesca with more kick than is typical of that sauce.

Asian Salad
As written, this is a very good recipe. As I modified it, I think I made it a GREAT recipe. Some of the modifications I got from other people's reviews and some were my own idea. My modifications were - cut the amount of almonds in half - double the sesame seeds - brown the noodles, almonds and sesame seeds in the over (no butter) 350 degrees for 10 minutes - add a tablespoon of sesame oil to the sauce - add a half cup of cilantro - add 2 tablespoons of sumac For me, the sumac was the magic ingredient. It seemed to really round out the flavor.

Asian Cucumber Thai Salad
This is a great summer recipe. The only change I made was to add a little more red pepper flakes to give it just a little more kick. I'm participating in a tasting bee with an Asian theme this fall. This may be my recipe (unless I find something else I like better in the next couple of weeks).
