About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Jewish holiday foods. When I prepared far in advance due to a planned vacation trip one of my kids complained "it was the wrong smell at the wrong time!" We tell the season by the menu!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Preparing holiday and family occasion large meals. It seems we celebrate everything with family meals.
My cooking triumphs
I think it a triumph when my grandchildren call me for a recipe they particularly enjoyed! It sometimes amazes me what they want.
My cooking tragedies
Gratefully not too many, but we still talk about the jello mold that didn't jell from Thanksgiving till Passover! Of course by then it went well and truly moldy and after it was photographed (!) it went OUT! I was still a young housewife and I was mortified, and thought my company would never come back. While the story entered our family lore they never thought twice about it, probably never noticed it was missing from the meal!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine
Several people have complained that this bread was not high enough; I would point out that Italian bread, as we saw during our years in Rome, is NOT very high. I remember thinking it looke like 'bakery flops' til I got used to it! This bread is still going strong in my house after years! Tonight I am taking 6 (SIX) loaves to a family party! That says it well.
