I was driving along, minding my own business when an old memory invaded my personal space. I guess it was my fault. First, it is my brain so there's that. Second, I was thinking about cocktails and appetizers, which I am responsible for at an upcoming dinner party. So there's that too doncha… MORE

About this Cook
I'm old and smelly, kinda like a really good salami with that really nice white mould all over it.
My favorite things to cook
Meat, carbs, meat, carbs, meat, carbs and did I mention meat?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Drop a plate of Pierogis and sausages in front of me and watch my eyes glaze over in pure joy.
My cooking triumphs
Schweinebraten mit Knoedel und Krautsalat. Also Edel Hirsch Gulasch was very nice. I make killer Spaetzle and Knockerl also.
My cooking tragedies
There aren't enough electrons in cyberspace! :) Actually, the tragedies usually involve well intentioned creativity out of control.

Gnocchi I
I made these exactly as the recipe said and these little fellers were dense! I didn't read the comments until after I had made them. Really, you do need to add the flour slowly and you probably won't need all of it. I am guessing a single cup of flour might be almost enough.

Negroni Dolce Cocktail
Note: be sure to stir and not shake this drink. Shaking will cause the drink to become cloudy and lessen the flavors.

Squash Stuffed With Dates and Onion
Excellent recipe! I am glad that I grew buttercup squash this year. It means that we can have this again. The flavors are very good as in the recipe. I think if I were to make any changes they would be to salt the squash before stuffing, and to add a bit of sage to the stuffing as well as to replace the stock with white wine (pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc). Seriously, it is great the way it is. My wife is looking forward to the next time I make this.
