Cookies makes me smile...
About this Cook
Since I am divorced and my children have left to make their own families, I have had to make a radical adjustment in how and when I cook. These days I tend to eat very light (fruits, vegetables, cheese, smoked salmon etc). When I have family or guests over, I roll out the big pans and cook to please them (and me).
My favorite things to cook
I like to prepare creams and "English tea" sandwiches that can be used to compliment snacks and goodies people can munch on when talking or watching TV. I also prepare creme fresche to dip into melon balls (yum) and this is sort of my hallmark. People who come over expect to have it now smile. Turning out simple dinners with a touch of elegance is my specialty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roasted leg of lamb for Easter is traditional at my place, along with country ham (the kind you soak for 3 days) for New Years. I do a lot of BBQ and have taught most of my friends and family to excel in this arena.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching a class of high school kids "cooking for dating success" one semester was my greatest triumph. They brought me back twice more to repeat the guest visitor class. Guess there is a lot of demand for this type of skill grin.
My cooking tragedies
I once had 6 people show up for dinner at my house. Unfortunately, I thought the dinner was the next day. I served a lot of potatoes that night...

Butter Almond Cookies
I substituted chopped pecans and cognac for several of the ingredients, and the results were pretty good. Another great recipe from Kit--way to go!

French Cream Filling
This is truly a light and creamy filling for cream puffs, and I am proud to give Kit Gay credit for this great addition to my collection. As a single man it is difficult to find a great pastry filling that I can put together quickly for friends here in Massachusetts, and this fits the bill perfectly!
