About this Cook
I am a married retired individual who has loved to cook since I was 10 and in my early adult years was an active manager of food service establishments (restaurants, cafeterias, etc.)
My favorite things to cook
Virtually anything from simple and easy to complex, although the more complex items with unusual ingredients are becoming a pain to make. I guess age is lessening my tolerance for fussing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Large meals at holidays with family and friends, usually a total of 14-20 people.
My cooking triumphs
Well orchastrated meals for guests when all items are hot together and blend together well and all taste great.
My cooking tragedies
A few lead ballons like trying to carve a leg of lamb for the first time to a table of new guests.

Aunt Anne's Sesame Cookies
Outstanding little cookie, great with coffee. Just a note on saving money. If you have an Asian market nearby, buy the sesame seeds there at 80% less than the normal grocery store.

Pignoli Cookies I
Excellent cookie. I found it best to use parchment paper, instead of oiling the pan. Let the cookies cool quite a bit before removing from parchment and they should come off quite easily with minimal sticking.

Italian Almond Cookies II
Outstanding cookie. A couple of hints I discovered. Combine the granulated sugar and almond paste in a food processor first, until it looks like sand. Place in a mixing bowl and mix in other dry ingredients and lastly add the egg whites. Chill 20 - 30 minutes and use a small ice cream scoop to get uniform portions. When rolling in almonds, flatten the cookies pressing into the almonds which helps them adhere to the cookie. Forget oiling the pan and use parchment paper instead. However, after removing from the oven, let the cookies cool at least 10 minutes before trying to remove. The cookies harden and easily slide off the parchment. If you have a shortage of pans, slide the entire parchment off the pan to let the cookies cool.
