Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
I made these today and they are delicious. They taste just like the ones my Sicilian mom and aunt used to make! I used the "Solo" brand canned almond paste. The only thing I did different was I scaled it down because I just wanted to try it and because the almond paste came in 8oz cans. I scaled it down to 24 servings and it worked out perfectly. I used my food processor to do the mixing and it did a great job. I couldn't imagine trying to use my hand mixer for this as the paste was pretty hard, almost like cement. Definitely chill the dough before forming the cookies and flour your hands after each ball because it is pretty sticky. Only mistake I made was putting these directly on a "non-stick" cookie sheet. Next time I will go with the parchment paper. I just forgot... But these are excellent. Anyone would think I bought them at a fancy bakery! I never knew these cookies were SO easy to make!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
I made this today with sweet chicken sausage. I didn't have any white wine so I used a little beer instead. I also used olive oil instead of butter and I used an Italian seasonings grinder mill for the spice. Delish! Looks like we are having sausage, peppers, onions and scrambled eggs with cheese on a roll for breakfast tomorrow too! Thanks for sharing!
