amaretto french toast with nutella
I just make shit up when I'm making food so this isn't even a real recipe, but it's easy and you can do it too
a decent pour of chocolate milk
splash of amaretto
four pieces of bread (just... average white bread is what I used, you could do whole wheat or french bread or whatever)
buttah for frying
nutella (or some other topping do whatever you want)
beat the liquids in a dish big enough for four bread slices. soak one side for a bit, then flip the slices and let them finish soaking in the fridge. I left them overnight. heat a big frying pan on medium or medium-low heat, melting the butter. fry 'em up til golden (about 2 minutes per side) and spread with nutella (or whatever). unf.
Homemade kitsune udon, you guys, I win at it. It's so much easier to make than I thought...though being Japanese cooking it takes like a gazillion pots and stuff. Hurpa durp like three, but I'm lazy.
But really the hardest part was finding aburaage! Everything after that is "throw into pot, simmer, wait, strain." Unf so tasty. And I had leftover dashi so I made that into miso shiru. Also tasty.

Eating some fried cheese ravioli things. Bluh. They're okay, but I get tired of frozen food for dinner. I also have one of those fancy natural smoothie drink things that I normally enjoy profusely, but this one has a weird undertaste that reminds me of bubblegum fluoride rinse. Drinkable though. :P
But I am pleased. Apparently I had some Christmas presents from my grandmother I did not realize I had: a nice glass measuring cup, a set of wooden spoons, a mini-spreader, a plastic measuring cup with several systems on it, and a little book of recipes. I guess somebody told her I liked to bake. I am so making a cake tomorrow.
Just gonna leave this here...
Guacamole and Chicken Salad Recipes
1x Rotisserie Chicken (I used ‘Lemon Pepper’ chicken)
A handful of red grapes, sliced
A handful of dried cranberries
One celery stalk, chopped up
One large spring onion(scallion), sliced
A handful of sunflower seeds
Mayo, to desired consistency
Lemon Juice to taste
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper
Shred the chicken off the bone with a fork. Make sure everything is ROUGHLY the same size. Mix it all together in a bowl. This made 4 large sandwiches worth of salad.
4 Large avocados, ripe (soft)
3 plum (roma) tomatoes
1 Serrano pepper
a few bunches of cilantro
salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper
4 cloves of garlic
Chop up the avocado fruit and mash it up really good so it’s not smooth but still coheres together. Deseed the tomatoes, chop up roughly, and mix the bits in with the avocado. Deseed the pepper, chop up finely, and mix in to the tomato/avocado mix. Remove the leaves from the stems of the cilantro, chop up finely, and add that in. Crush the cloves of garlic (if you don’t have a garlic press, finely chopped will do) and stir those in as well. Finally, add in the salt, pepper, cayenne, and lime juice to taste. This filled up a decent sized bowl and served a decent number of people at a party, but it also went QUICK. Note that the serrano and cayenne do give this a bit of heat; add more or less as to your tastes.
I made this for lunch today:
It's three-cheese tortellini with baby spinach and grape tomatoes, in a sauce made of milk, cream cheese, parmesan, lemon zest, and fresh black pepper. It was pretty quick and easy and fairly tasty, plus it's filling. I got the recipe from a Philadelphia cream cheese cookbook.
Also: this seems to taste better at just above room-temperature than it does hot.
So my impromptu attempt at making Mei Fun was both a success and a failure. A failure in that it didn't taste much like the Mei fun I'm used to, but a success in that it tasted pretty good anyway.
Lo main noodles pan boiled till the water boiled off and stir fried with carrots and bean sprouts. Added 2 eggs, and Oriental Curry powder, salt, pepper, and topped it with slivered almonds.
I think it was either the lack of a meat, or maybe the lack of oyster sauce and onions which made the difference. Still tasted good though especially when I gave up on making it taste like it should and added a bit of orange ginger sauce.
Ahhhh, those noodles look amazing.
Made a cake for my dad's birthday. I'm currently debating whether I want to bother with buttercream or not.
RISK OF SALMONELLA BE DAMNED. I HAVE CONSUMED THIS BATTER. IT WAS MY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT.
Oven was obviously too hot for this guy, but the smell is amaaaazing. It's a lot longer than it looks, but my microwave is over my stove, so a tilt was required to get the shot. Also, I get flour all over everything. It is the only way to bake.

I'm really hungry, and the only place I feel it is appropriate to post that is here.
I am craving Indian food something fierce, but I am doing laundry right now/cleaning my mother's house, so I can't get some.
What's your favorite Indian food dish? I usually order chicken makhani, but I hear chicken masala is good, too.
One time I made this great chickpea/tomato/spinach curry, it was pretty much the best Indian food I've ever tasted. Anything curry is A+ in my book. Although I actually prefer Thai curry to Indian.
Actually, no, wait. My favorite Indian food is... samosas filled with peas and potatoes.
So, it turns out flour is the best flavor of ice cream.
hey i forgot about this thread :O
i've always wanted to make my own hummus!
i always find most grocery store hummus kind of gross... or maybe just not garlicy enough
this week i'm gonna bake and cook a lot with my friend and i am looking really forward to it
Oh fucking hummus. I love it. I put that shit on everything. I've never made my own though. Sabra used to be my favorite brand because of how creamy it was, but now I lean towards Tribe because I've come to like the less fatty kinds more.
The best hummus I ever had was at this little hole in the wall Middle Eastern cuisine place in NYC, I forget what it was called or where we found it. But that hummus was to die for.
I am all about the Trader Joe's hummus as far as storebought goes (even though my favorite varieties are not really authentic in a culinary sense), but I am a hummus fiend. Now that I know how easy it is to make my own I will probably do that all the time and experiment with different flavors and seasonings.
I've had one container of Sabra before, and the little pile of chopped stuff in the centre confused me. Do you mix it before eating or dip into it as the urge arises?
But YES to Trader Joe's hummus! - the spicy one. I couldn't find a spicy Sabra equivalent, so I had to settle on the red pepper one.
I've only tried those two hummus types so far because I am relatively new to this underground hummus scene.
I think the general idea is to mix it in, but you can do whatever you want, man. It's your hummus.
The two varieties of hummus I can't stand are roasted red pepper and chipotle. Barf. I don't know why, those flavorings just totally taint the hummus experience for me. But I love plain, garlic, and any other flavor they throw my way. I'm also partial to Sabra's pizza hummus for whatever reason.
I like the spicy, the cilantro and jalapeno and the basil from Trader Joe's. I'm not super (pine) nuts about Sabra, but pretty much any storebought hummus can be improved with some lemon juice and additional seasonings, I find.
