Ok, so it has been a bit heavy in here lately so I decided to go with a fun topic. Based on the Food Network threads lately, it seems we have quite a few cooks here on A.net. I know that several of us consider ourselves some kind of home gourmet, including Cactus739, ConcordeBoy, ANCFlyer, Logan22L and me. Anyway, I wanted to make this thread the one where we post our various recipes we have recently made and liked.
So, this is a Mexican influenced recipe I made tonight. Since I am single, I will use 2 serving recipes unless otherwise noted
Alireza's Catfish, Fajita style:
2/3rd of a pound Catfish Fillets (about 300g), about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick
1/2 Green Bell Pepper (Capcicum for the UK/Aussie types)
1/2 Jalepeno, deveined and seeded (used for flavor, not heat here)
Fresh ginger from a 1/2 inch slice of a ginger root (about 1.25 cm)
2 medium firm Apricots, chopped into chunks
Juice of 1 Lime
Salt and Pepper to taste
Kalamata Olive Oil
Saute all ingredients, except for the catfish, in a light skillet with the olive oil over medium heat until the apricots begin to soften. Add catfish and cook through, squeezing the lime over the fish. Serve with black beans and corn
tortillias (I used blue corn ones).
You can, of course, use any dense white fish (Haddock or Orange Roughy would work well) in this recipe

ok fine I am tempted since this is my speciality. I make IMO the best Bread Pudding so here I am going to post this .
10 Eggs Beaten
Bread pieces ( use regular white bread and break it into pieces)
2 C Granulated sugar
2 Tbsp Vanilla extract ( do not use the fake extract)
5 C Milk ( you can use Whole milk , 2% or 1% no NON FAT milk)
A/N Golden Raisins
A/N ground Cinnamon
Directions: Prehear your oven to 350F. Scald the milk with the sugar. Then add the beaten eggs into the milk and sugar mixture ( make sure the burner is off when you add the eggs and that the milk is not too hott or else the eggs will curdle and it will be bad). Add the vanilla extract and mix everything together. Sprinkle the raisins on the bread pieces. Also, sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the bread pieces then pour the egg and milk mixture. Bake uncoverd for about 45 mins then check it to see if the top is golden brown and make sure that the pudding does not shake too much when you move it that means that it is not done. Stick a knife in the pudding and if it comes out clean then it is cooked and allow to cool and serve with whatever you wish. Hope you like this let me know if you try it by sending me a e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

Quoting N1120A (Reply 12): BTW, you are not limited to just 1 recipe for the whole thread.
OK! Great! I have a million! Here's one of my favorite vegetarian dishes:
"Cheese Ravioli Casserole"
1 can Chef Boy R Dee cheese ravioli
1 can Cambells Vegetarian Vegetable soup
1 bag Lays barbecue potato chips
Place 1 can cheese ravioli and 1 can vegetarian vegetable soup in a 1qt pyrex or microwavable bowl.
Place a paper towel over the top of the bowl to prevent splatter and microwave on high for 90 sec.
Remove paper towel and stir.
Replace paper towel and microwave for an additional 1 min.
Remove from oven and discard paper towel.
Sprinkle barbecue potato chips over casserole for texture and flavor.
I'll post my recipe for cheese and potato chip sandwiches later.

Spaghetthi with salmon - I had it once in Venice, and it's a nice reminder of that city I fell so deeply in love with.
I just cook the spaghetti, with a lot of salt and olive oil, and I fry the salmon in olive oil, oregano and some salt and pepper, reducing the piece of fish to small pieces. When the spaghetti are done, I pour some olive oil over them and add the bits of salmon. Spaghetti with "frutti di mare", i.e. mussles, calamari and shrimps is very much alike - I use garlic instead of oregano and add parsley after cooking.
However, can't beat a slice of good black bread (typicall German "Schwarzbrot") with some smoked trout on it... yum!
Oh yes, I do love seafood! Pity I didn't try whale when I had the opportunity.
