in honor of the mashed perterter thread...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Eric Perry, Aug 14, 2012.

  1. There's clearly a lot of cats on TB who love to cook. I thought it'd be a cool idea to post pics/descriptions of some of our dishes. I don't have many pics saved, but I did snap one of tonight's...

    It's pan fried parmesan crusted chicken with a spinach & red onion salad, drizzled with a balsamic reduction. On the side there is mashed cauliflower. There was also a tomato & cucumber salad, but no pics of that. lt was all washed down with an awesome sparkling cranberry wine from a local winery.

    In response to a tasty dinner, Steph makes me grilled cheese! Anywho, onto the horrible cell phone pic...

  5. Great idea for a thread! I'm pretty new to the world of cooking/baking but I'm having fun with all this edible science ;).

    Last night I got this crazy urge and made an omelet with homemade fried chicken (made by my mom) and homemade spaghetti sauce (made by me). It turned out to be my first "perfect" omelet. Cooked thuroughly and lightly browned on each side. No tears in the egg at all. I was pretty happy with myself, haha. No pics though. But I did bake this apple cake about a week ago. Got the recipe from my cousin and improvised on it a bit.



    Oh, and I'm gonna have to get that recipe off you sometime, Eric. That looks delicious.

    Tonight I made pasta primavera with vegan sausage and gluten free noodles. The veggies consisted of purple heirloom tomatoes and basil from our garden along with some store bought bell peppers and onions.

    Desert was gluten free crepes with a honey sweetened fresh picked berry compote and a jalapeno chocolate powder sprinkled lightly on top.

    My "signature" dish, if you will, is a fried egg sandwich :D. It's not pretty, but it's GOOD! I fry up a broken yolk egg on one side, and before flipping I add grated cheese, salt, pepper, and completely cover the egg in Frank's or the hottest sauce I have on hand (I like my food hot, usually with scotch bonnet peppers but they don't really go with eggs), then flip. The loaded side usually ends up brown and slightly crispy, and then it's slipped onto a lightly toasted and buttered slice of Canadian Rye. Yum. I'll take a pic or two next time.

    Lately I've been searching food.com for some new recipes. This one was a real winner because it was incredibly good and incredibly easy:


    I make a pecan, honey-mustard chicken that is pretty good too.
    I cook a lot of asian food. Typically one to two dishes a week will be Asian of some type. Last night it was a fish curry.

    Tonight I just made grilled chicken nachos.

    So torturous to look at this thread when I'm stuck working the night shift with a lunchbox full of low-cal crap....

    I can't really cook. At all. And what I can cook, does not end up looking pretty. Tasty, but not pretty. My favorite thing to cook, or rather make is egg in a hole, using German dark bread. At college, I don't really have time to go to the cafe for breakfast in the morning (because I like sleeping, so sue me), so I make egg in a hole to hold me over. Takes all of 7 minutes to make. Always a good start to the day. I also like making just fried eggs for breakfast. Either way, wish I had pictures of the horror, but I don't.

    I also make a mean Cheddar, Cream Cheese, and Roast Beef Bagel sandwich.

    I should learn how to actually cook...:meh:

    Great idea Eric. However, the thread title may be a little too arbitrary to draw passing traffic. Maybe you should retitle it with the word 'official' somewhere in the title. In capital letters. That ALWAYS makes people have a nosey.

    Hahaha. It didn't cross my mind to photograph our food before we eat it, but now I know. The next time I prepare a meal worth talking about, I'll have the cell phone camera handy.

    I was halfway through my third bowl before I decided to snap a shot of my secret recipe Gumbo.


    I can tell you a couple ingredients were




    But if I tell you more I'd have to kill you.
  17. I had a buncha veggies and stuff that I needed to use up before they went bad so:

    Chopped up Asparagus, a green bell pepper, and a zuchinni.
    Add bean sprouts and diced peanuts
    Stir-fry in the WAM (World's Awesomest Marinade: Equal 1/3rds or so Sriracha, Soy Sauce, and Peanut Oil)
    Add adobo seasoning to taste.
    Set aside

    Tofu: Cut into small cubes. Dry-fry, then throw on WAM once dry-frying is complete. Cook to preference, throw in a bowl with the veggies.

    I then scrambled three eggs, mixed it all together, then scooped out my portion for the night and added white rice and soy sauce to taste. Pretty friggin' delish.

    I had blended cale and ginger.

    The gal and I are detoxing this week. Juicing it up veggie style. Got the recipes from Fat, Sick and almost dead. There was a thread on here not too long ago about it too.

    Pretty sure you don't want to see pictures of that :)

    we catch these critters late fall, early winter. try to catch enough of them during that time to enjoy all year.. Let's see, you can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs.. well, you get the idea!

  20. Kwesi, bud, the frosting skilz, might need some practice.:D
