I made this lovely Thai-Cajun chicken salad sandwich today and it was totally nom. I recommend mincing the veggies and grinding the nuts in a food processor. http://tanglednoodle.blogspot.com/2009/04/sandwiched-in-gratitude.html

I love being able to make something yummy and then eat it. Who else here cooks?

Wanna share recipes?

I cook when I can. Love to experiment with my food, especially seafood.

Made a quick shirmp dish a few days ago, involving spinach and garlic. Yummy.

I love to cook, and so does my partner! Especially at this time of year, when the farmers market is overflowing with delicious produce. I like to experiment with different techniques and cuisines, especially Indian and Peruvian, but I also really enjoy cooking the German comfort foods I grew up eating.

This was fun because I identified some recipes I wanted to make and then got the ingredients and then made each one. The end result was a lunch for friends (who then canceled, so it'll be dinner tonight with the boyfriend), of this sandwich, roasted green beans with onions and cashews, baked sweet potato fries, and salad. What I love about this is that it has no mayo. I hate mayo.

But I usually can't cook like this because it's so labor-intensive. I used my cuisinart for the veggies, but you still have to peel ginger, hand-dice it (too little in the marinade for the cuisinart), etc. But the result is fantastic!

On most days, if we cook, it's usually a sauteed veggie, a slab of fish or chicken, and pasta or a baked potato with a salad. And it gets to be such a goat rodeo even doing that in the kitchen.

So I love when I can take a day and just...cook.

Same here.

I make a pretty good chicken alfredo.
I just recently picked up a rotisserie and made my first home made gyro last week.

Kitchen appliances I have are;

Deep fryer
Rice cooker
Fondu
Rotisserie


Homemade egg rolls cooked in the deep fryer is incredible.
One of my favorite things to make are my own corn tortilla chips. That along with homemade salsa is incredible!

I'm coming to your's the next time I'm in your area. Gyros are the way forward.

I love to cook and experiment. For dinner tonight, I made meatballs for the first time, with spaghetti and the most beautiful tomato sauce I've ever made.

I only ever cook for one, so if I'm making something, it's sometimes a large amount and then frozen like Moussaka, Shepherd's pie, casserole or lasagna.

Having seen the name of the OP, I did a double-take on the title of this thread  Wink

I love cooking but just recently I haven't the time. My favourite quickie is one large onion very finely sliced, two or three cloves of garlic, a squirt of tomato puree, a can of good quality diced tomatoes in their juice, some mixed Italian herbs and freshly ground black pepper and a can of tuna in brine. This served with spaghetti and freshly grated Parmesan ..... culinary heaven, and ready in less than fifteen minutes.

Cool, Tuesday 7.30pm? lol. I don't make things very adventurous nowadays as cooking for one is boring and not very impressive. When I was living in Cyprus last year, my flatmate was a foodie (and a member of pprune, woo hoo an aviation enthusiast) we used to often go out to local restaurants and have a meze or Cypriot/Greek food. We lived opposite and I NEVER went to the best restaurant on the island. I will never forgive myself for that.

That is for sure, it is very well equipped.

I like to cook too. I don't get too fancy, but I like to cook on my grill. I don't mind baking cookies and cakes either. I live alone and nobody is around to make me anything good so If I want it I have to do it myself.

Deep fryer

I like fried food way too much for my own good. I'm glad we don't have a deep fryer, even though homemade tortilla chips sound really good! Especially combined with my heirloom tomato salsa cruda  yummy .

My prized kitchen possessions are:
1) A CUISINART food processor
2) A set of Wüsthoff kitchen knives that can cut through a raw sweet potato like it's butter.
3) A non-stick SCANPAN frying pan that's non-stick, even with metal utensils.

Today I used all three!  thumbsup

I do Doc. I have the amazing ability to turn a dried out cat turd and three pieces of last century's pasta into a gourmet dish they all scream for.

If it's actually fresh, str8 guys have begged for me to marry them just for my cooking.

Hey, I own all three of those, too!  bigthumbsup  My favorite knife is my Wüsthoff santoku.

My prized appliances include a convection oven/rotisserie, and a pump driven espresso machine.

My KitchenAid Mixer!!!!!  cloudnine 

I bought this baby last month and have made a number of cheesecakes (plain, mango, and chocolate ones), coffee cakes, a mango dos leches cake, scones, muffins, and nutella brownies, as well as pastry dough for apple tarts and chicken pot pies!  yummy 

Since my project at work will be ending soon, I decided to dwelve into cooking beyond the simple stuff, though I love making my favorite turkey lasagna! Recently I've been cooking more traditional Filipino stuff for my parents and relatives and getting good reviews from them, though they say my stuff needs a bit more salt. I'm not a big salt fan so only put sparingly in my cooking.

I cook all day and all night. I like to cook because I'm on a very low carb diet and I can't eat processed foods. Carbs not only make me fat they make me cranky as hell, the blood sugar spikes do rather. I really like inventing recipes or modifying ones to my taste.

My latest "inventions" are flaxseed crackers and unleavened flaxseed bread.

Brown flax seeds are truly brilliant for the low carb/low calorie diet. The carbohydrates in them are 95% offset with dietary fiber so for a 20g carb serving there is only 1g net carb!!!
