Before you read, if you click on the pictures, you can see the whole thing.   I don't know why the AllRecipes blogs do that to my pictures.   Ok, on with the blog.It's been a little busy.   I haven't had a lot of time for some of my usual foodies addictions, like the buzz and the continuous… MORE

About this Cook
Dad of two great girls and husband to one equally great lady.
My favorite things to cook
I like Italian and Mexican. I enjoy a challenge and tend to move on once I have it mastered.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom taught all of us boys (and girls) to cook. It's always nice when Mom has us over and I get to carve the meat for her.
My cooking triumphs
My favorite triumphs are cooking twice for my daughters and their friends proms. Both years I served about 15 and stuck with my own Italian recipes. The kids all loved the meals. Now the girls (in college) and their friends try to make a point to come out for my cooking, which usually turns out! I love having them here and the cooking helps! Also once a year I have to make pies for a local fundraiser and last year, the old ladies thought I had bought the cheesecake with the pretty swirls and passed it off as my own. Nope. Sorry ladies!
My cooking tragedies
Yep, I've left the giblets in the bird once. I also believed the pop-up thermometer one time when I shouldn't have. Yea, and I did a rotisserie chicken in 7 minutes flat. Forgot to turn the grill down from preheating. That wasn't pretty.

New York Italian Style Cheesecake
I followed the recipe exactly as written. To me, this cheesecake didn't have a lot of flavor and had a grainy texture. I think that possibly it would have been better if served warm, but the lack of flavor still was there. If I was to make it again, I would definitely have to add in more lemon and vanilla. Thank you for the experience.

Ricotta Cookies III
This an excellent, light tasting, fluffy, easy to make recipe. I found the flavor and texture of the cookies awesome and the flavor of the frosting perfect. I followed the directions as written, with the exception that I used parchment paper instead of a greased sheet. My bake time was at least a couple of minutes more than the recipe called for, but that may have been because of the parchment paper. I tested doneness just as you would a cake, inserting a toothpick and checking to see if it came out clean. This worked. The dipping in the frosting and sprinkles got to be a little messy, so on the second batch I spooned on the frosting and sprinkles. I liked this better, but I need to remember to keep the frosting warm so the sprinkles stick (ooops). When I go to the big box store, I sometimes tend to over purchase some things that aren't great at my store, like ricotta cheese. Because of this, I don't always get it used up before it expires. With this recipe, that will no longer be a problem.
