    Rose Meringues

    What do you do with the left-over egg whites? Here is a fast and easy recipe to make. You can make these last in your holiday baking so you can put them in the oven to dry out overnight. I made mine with rose water and light pink coloring. 



    Cinnamon Rolls.. Yea!

    Cinnamon Rolls. 

    Hot and fresh.. when you hear those two words you think of cinnamon and warmth from a kitchen. Years ago I created a Cinnamon Roll that I taught on the pilot of The Mike and Maty Show.. feeding the entire 250 people in the audience hot cinnamon roll lead to being on the show as a regular. 

    This week LA Weekly had an article on the top 10 cinnamon rolls of Los Angeles. I have eaten in a few and really.. Nothing special. Here is the link:

    Norway.... Waffles

    The Waffles of Norway

    I recently returned from a 7 day cruise of The Netherlands and Norway. We started in Rotterdam the home port of Holland America Lines and also the ms. Rotterdam. We sailed to Oslo, the Fjords, Flam and a few places in-between.

    Many places served waffles. cold waffles. I am used to a nice crispy hot butter melting waffles. Not the Dutch or Norwegians. They make waffles and stack them up with just a towel on top to keep warm. Served with a nice raspberry compote and thickened cream or sour cream. Here are the waffles I had above Flam, Norway

    It's All Green... Pistachio Cake with a Sherry Glaze

    I first made this cake in the early 1980s in a small Hollywood cake bakery called The Cake Walk it was on 3rd street and La Brea in the middle of all of the studios and the action.  Daily we would get filming crews, stars and the like. For weddings the groom would always pick this cake as the base. Funny how you can make a cake and the flavors and aroma of the kitchen take you back to days gone bye.


    Here is the glazing of the cake.... We used to boast.. "Glazed with Harvey's Bristol Creme Sherry".. The only bottle of Harvey's was in the display case next to the cake. We used jug sherry at a tenth of the cost. Today I use Galleano Winery Sherry Crema Cask Three.. (Below is the link to order and more information).
