Yesterday was quite a day in the Big Apple. I am not usually the "fan" type since we see so many celebrities going about their daily business on a daily basis you get kind of jaded to the whole idea. Paul Stanley from Kiss running to catch a cab, Molly Ringwald at the grocery store, Vincent Denofrio playing with his kid in the playground, Uma Thurman in the playground with her children, Jerry Seinfeld going to play softball it goes on an on like that but when I saw Lidia Bastianich through a window at a book signing I had to rush right in.
I seem to get all starry eyed when I see celebrity chefs, I dont know why. I saw Matsuharu Morimoto one time walking down the block and I stopped and then he stopped and it looked like we were going to have a gun fight, we both laughed and he went on his way. Anyway Ms.Bastianich is a very personable and genteel woman and I was glad I went in and asked for a photo.
Traditions and memories are what you make of them and I am in charge of giving my kid memories so what better memory than making spritz cookies, right? I have every kind of spritzer by Mirro ever made, well probably not every kind but four at least.
I think the most fun for him are the "mistakes" that he somehow keeps making and then "having to eat the dough."
Some had cranberries but they kept falling off. Who doesnt like a buttery crispy soft spritz cookie?
