About this Cook
I live in the Netherlands in Europe and i am 53 years old. I'm married for 33 years and we've no childeren. I used to breed persians, but my health doesn't allow me anymore. I still have 3 persian cats and 1 chihuahua doggie with long hair. Baking and cooking is not easy for me because i'm disabled and use outside a wheelchair. In the kitchen am i standing up and switch with sitting down. It takes more time but i'm getting there.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and to cook italien meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my favorite cakes is on some sites about cooking and baking. We have several. But it contents ingredients that you in the states don't have! I don't know the english word for it. It's a stroopwafeltulbandcake. I gues you don't understand.
My cooking triumphs
Eton mess with rice pudding and my stroopwafeltulbandcake.
My cooking tragedies
Pasta carbonara. The first couple of times it was pasta with scrambled eggs!

New Year's Cookies
This looks a lot like what we duch eat on newyearseve! They're called "rozijnen bollen" or. "oliebollen". In english that is raisins bolls or oil bolls. We only use powderd suger over it. Nothing more! For people who don't like raisins there are also without the raisins. All over our country they're eaten on new years eve. Everywhere, in every house are they. That's a very old tradition. I can remember that my grandmother told me she eat them as a child already. And she died 33 years ago on the age of 82! And i think it goes further back. Nice to see it here! Make it also your tradition with new years eve! That would be great, all over the world eating the same on this one day a year! Enjoy your balls! Bye. :-)

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
If you just cook the nuts for 1-2 minutes and let them cool before using them, your log will cut much easier and won't break by the nuts! That's really true. A patissier will always do so before putting them in a cake, pate or cookie. And thanks for your very great recepi! We loved it very much. Succes with baking in the future. :-)

Almond Shortbread I
I used half flour and half almond powder. I blenderd whole white almonds into powder and used that for the half of the flour. This way you have more almond taste! It's great recepi and even better on my way. Keep up the great work with baking cookies, bye Marja
