I try to cook, and there are a few things I can do well, but I suck at timing.

*first post?*

I do really love to cook. However, I have a limited repertoire, and I don't do it very often. Does that count?

Somebody Gimme a Frying pan...I'm ready!

That show just isn't the same without Michiba.

if i have time to spend on the process of cooking, getting into the preparation, experimenting, enjoying the chemistry of it, I love it. Particularly baking, or making complex soups or stews.

however, if it's just the typical oh-i-have-to-get-dinner-on-the-table-again-tonight, it's usually a chore.

I absolutely love it... as anyone who knows me can tell you. :)

I'm amazed there's nobody here (yet) who's in the business, though!!! *sniff* Just a few short years ago, that one vote would have been me. heh

I miss it sometimes... but I'm glad I got out and moved on.

I've heard you are a pretty lousy cook. ;)
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Love you too, babycakes.
:)
renita Back · 14 years, 8 months ago

K-Lyn · 14 years, 8 months ago
Does grilling count as cooking?
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
god yes!

In the words of Alton Brown,

"Food + heat = cooking"
stealthlori Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
you have to use HEAT?

damn. then some of my favorite recipes/concoctions don't count as "cooking". like innumerable salads, and summer fruity things, and gazpacho, and smoothies, and ceviche not that i've ever made it ...

/slinks away sadly

nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Not to mention sushi. :)
stealthlori Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
and carpaccio.

i didn't mention sushi because in that general category sometimes the accompaniments to the fish are cooked (edit: With Heat! :D). also, i'm not a fan of plain-raw-fish sushi/sashimi. i like rice and nori and caviar and assorted slivers of other stuff, plus the fish. :)
nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
Heh... fair enough.

And carpaccio.... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

renita Back · 14 years, 8 months ago
but carpaccio CAN involve cooking

CARPACCIO

Carpaccio was invented in 1961 at Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. It was named for the Renaissance painter Vittore Carpaccio who was noted for his use of red in his paintings. Thin sliced raw beef served with a cold vinaigrette made with olive oil, or just olive oil and lemon juice (and sometimes Parmesan cheese). Generally served on a bed of greens such as watercresss, endive, arugula and/or radicchio. Originally the beef was seared quickly, and the seared portion then trimmed off before slicing.


from this website.

and in sushi, the rice is always cooked. and sometimes the contents. so shove it ;P
renita Back · 14 years, 8 months ago

nate... Back · 14 years, 8 months ago

LOVE to cook but my philosophy is why cook when you have a boyfriend who loves to cook and is better than you?

I'm more of a baker anyway...btw anyone got any ideas on what to bake for my trainign weekend? I've got limited time and money and no decent cake tins at the mo. I might do scooby doo cakes or something...
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 14 years, 8 months ago

rice krispie treats are good: rice krispies, marshmallows, butter.

Muddy Buddies are teh yummies: butter, chocolate and peanut butter melted together in a pan, then poured over chex cereal and tossed with powered sugar.

then there's my favorite: chocolate saltines: brown sugar and butter melted and candied, then poured over saltines. then topped with chocolate morsels that are smoothed out when they have melted.
