    COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    I looked to see if there wasn't one already and i dont see one. so any of you like to cook? im no bad ass chef or anything but i like to play at it and am not afraid to work my ass of in the kitchen. im just now getting into the grilling scene and am just now learning that you have to sear meat to keep it from drying out. yea im a little late to the party but oh well. im not like going all out with it but we got a new grill and i decided id burn some stuff on it. lol. i do do a bit of cooking from scratch. ive made brunswick stew and custard and bread and cake from scratch. its a lot of work but if you make a lot at one time its damn worth it. so yea who here cooks? even just simple stuff

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    I can only cook basic stuff (fried eggs, spaghetti, fried rice, certain Filipino dishes, ramen) and since getting married, my skills have gotten rusty since my wife prefers to do all of the cooking. I will say this about food, though: Those food saver bags and devices really do work. Many times my wife prepared dishes a week ahead of time, bagged them up, sealed them, and put them in the freezer. When it came time to eat them, they still tasted great even after a week in the freezer.

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    got any recipes for those Filipino dishes? and maybe she would like it if you cooked together. would be all romantic n shit. and yea those vacuum freezer bags are awesome.

    - - - Updated - - -

    ok so here are a few recipes my grandmother gave me a while ago. some are just the standard way everyone makes something but hey if it isnt broke dont fix it. and some as far as i know are her versions.

    BAKED ZITI. (honestly not a big fan of this anymore, i guess its just cause i HAD to eat it so much when i was little i got tired of it and now that im older i just dont like it. i love everything that goes into it. like bell peppers, love em. cheese, come on who does not love cheese. noodles, duh. tomatoes, love em. but just not a fan of this dish. i just figured there may be someone on here who sees this and thinks "that sounds awesome i gotta try it" to each their own.)

    1 pound Ziti noodles, cooked and rinsed.
    3 cups sliced sweet red, green and yellow bell peppers.
    1 bag (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese.
    1 bag (8 ounces) shredded Monterrey jack cheese.
    1 can (28 ounces) whole crushed tomatoes open the can and pour out 1/4 of the juice. (not sure why but its part of the recipe)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 cup of half and half milk
    1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

    how to make it.
    heat oven to 350.
    grease a 13x9x2 inch pan
    mix ziti noodles, sweet peppers, cheeses, tomatoes, salt and pepper into a bowl then pour in half and half milk. cover with aluminum foil.
    bake at 350 for 30 minutes then uncover and top with bread crumbs. then bake another 30 minutes until the top is crispy.


    ok now for one i like. a lot. maybe to much. lol
    KING RANCH CHICKEN (this does not take long to make and tastes just as good if you cheat and buy a rotisserie chicken already cooked from the store on your way home from work. this stuff is crazy good. MAKE IT! ITS WORTH IT!)

    what you need
    1 green bell pepper chopped
    1 medium sweet onion chopped
    1 can of cream of chicken soup
    1 can of cream of mushroom soup
    2 cans of Rotel original diced tomatoes (its diced tomatoes and green chilies)
    2 cups cubed cooked chicken ( im tellin ya, its easier just to go pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store. and screw dicing it, i just rip it apart then throw all the bones n stuff out. use the whole chicken its fine.)
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.
    a pack of soft flower tortillas.

    how to make it.
    pre-heat oven to 325
    mix pepper, onion, soups, tomatoes and chicken into a bowl. (the biggest bowl you have, things are about to get messy. mix em good)
    layer in a casserole (<thank you spell check) dish the tortillas just enough to cover the bottom. then about half the mix then more tortillas then the rest of the mix then top with cheese.
    then bake with foil on top fo 40 minutes to 50 minutes. (to get the peppers done)

    ill post more later.

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    Those seem to be some tasty dishes, judging by the ingredients. And they don't seem to be difficult to cook. I might keep those handy for whenever I have to cook, haha.

    Sadly, I don't have recipes handy for the Filipino dishes I eat often, but I'll be sure to post them here when I do get them. About helping my wife cook, I do help her from time to time, especially for dishes that have a number of components to them. However, she often prefers that I stay out of the way In exchange, I always volunteer to do the dishes afterwards.

    Hmmm, now that I remember it, there is one Filipino dish I love eating no matter what time of day. It doesn't really require a lot of cooking though:

    1 or 2 Eggs
    2 Tomatoes
    A couple bowls of rice
    Some olive oil
    Some chopped or minced garlic
    Some Tinapa (Filipino salted fish)

    Slice the tomatoes, then add some salt. Next, fry the eggs sunny side up, adding some salt and pepper to season. Next, pour some olive oil on a skillet and sautee the minced garlic for 15 seconds on high heat, then add the rice and mix. Lower heat to medium and keep mixing until rice has a slight golden brown color. Once that's done, take the Tinapa and fry them in some vegetable oil for a few minutes. Serve them all together on the same plate, though I find it better to keep the Tinapa and tomatoes on a separate plate/bowl.

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    I cook sometimes. A few days ago, I made a couple of homemade biscuit and egg sandwiches with country ham in about 20 minutes flat. Another time I made fried catfish (wasn't exactly perfect, but they were still good).

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    that does sound good Dlinker. although im not sure where id get salted fish from. but if i find some ill try to make it. it does not sound hard. and i like to take catfish and wrap it in aluminum foil with lemon and whatever seasoning i feel like and bake it. the foil seals it all in and oh man its so good.

    Yeah, I don't know where you'd find oriental supermarkets near your neck of the woods. Supposedly you can make your own too. Haven't tried it myself thanks to so many oriental stores near my house.

    I'll take the Z'Gok, GM, and the Gyan. They are the most appetizing for me, haha.

    Re: COOKING/FOOD general discussion thread.

    I saw gif a while back of someone making a similar pancake. The darker parts are batter placed on first. Additional batter is placed after to make up the lighter parts, all applied using a bottle similar to the ketchup/mustard squirt bottles found in fast food joints for precision.

    That's ingenious.
