"Don't waste your time or effort. No taste and I don't think the measurements are correct either. But it sure looked good on TV. ""
Reviewed Apple and Walnut Torta
"Mine looked just like the picture on this recipe. I was all out of Grand Marnier and used Congnac to plump the cranberries. I used one large Pink Lady apple to get my 2 cups and had no problem with the amount of batter. Next time however I would use Golden Delicious as I've had much better performance with them in this type of recipe. The tast""
I first started cooking when I graduated highschool. Saturday morning cooking shows in the early 80s helped to establish my passion for the culinary arts and creativity in the kitchen. My Italian mother also receives a lot of credit for influencing my love for the kitchen and for what I put on my menu. If trouble should knock at my door, I cope with it in the kitchen. If I'm bored, I find a friend in the kitchen. When I feel creative, I mess up the kitchen. Cooking gives me confidence. Cooking taught me patience. Cooking allows me to express myself. Fortunately my genes have kept me thin.
My time in the kitchen has benefited me in my profession as a project manager. Cooking is where I've learned, as well as enjoyed, the value of planning, executing, monitoring, controlling, and closing. The deliverables are so tasty. I await the day when I can marry my two passions of project management and cooking, and also earn a living.
Soup is an essential part of my diet. Serving soup to begin the meal is almost like saying prayer before you eat. I find it calming and I think it helps set the mood, allowing everyone to be a peace. Baking started late in my life with a simple bread recipe from my mother. It then exploded as I used my talent of baking/cooking for religious celebrations (St. Joseph's Day) but later got put on the side when I moved cross country. Getting the household together for a family meal is truly important to me. Making it special and using it to help remove the cares of the day and allow the members to center themselves around the warmth, joy, and security of the family is key. The appearance, aroma, and sometimes even the sound of food should bring out emotions. Let's not eat food to simply survive. Let's prepare food to help make the most of every day and thrive.
