Hello good GWS'ers,
We know that people are waiting in line to fellate you due to the quality of your Cincinatti chili with beans...

This is where you tell us about that!

We also know that you photograph your food creations just about as much as you do your pets - this is a thread for that! (Food - pets are purely optional, and not at all encouraged, unless they're an ingredient - then knock yourself out).

This thread is where you tell people, what you made for dinner last night, what you cooked for breakfast or how beautifully you packed a brown bag for school lunch, and by all means solicit advice, or hand over recipes to your admirers.

What kind of post are we looking for here?
*Pictures are a plus, but not a must, however, do not expect people to think that you're awesome without the picture
*Quick and dirty with crappy cell phone pictures are ok
*Nicely lit pictures is ok too
*Do not declare that your camera cannot 'capture red' when posting steak pictures
*Be ready to answer questions - because people will want to copy you
*Newbies are most welcome, however you should be prepared to get friendly advice, sometimes not in a friendly tone of voice, but just remember that the people means well, and are not always able to use their inside voice before putting fingers to the keyboard, if you take offense to this, it is you who are in the wrong.

The old thread is here:

Brown sugar cured duck breast with Cointreau infused cranberry wild rice and butternut squash sauteed in butter and honey. The sauce is a blackberry gastrique.

For Valentine's Day I made Chicken Marsala:



And my valentine made Strawberry Rhubarb pie:



The chicken marsala was a goon recipe and came out incredibly. My only innovation was to add a dash of corn starch to thicken the sauce.

I didn't make it, but the neighbor girl dropped off some homemade pączki with plum filling. So yummy.






However I did make cracklin cornbread with a drizzle of rye honey.

Okay going after Casu Marzu is pretty intimidating, but this was Valentine's Lunch. Just a pretty simple two courses. We made the pasta together. Boyfriend almost never cooks but he really likes making homemade pasta with me so it was a fun thing to do for Valentines.


The appetizer course was a play on breakfast. Instead of bacon, eggs and pancakes it was pork belly topped with some sea salt with a maple-dijon mustard type dipping sauce, served over a masa cake and a sunnyside up egg. I'd never worked with belly before really! There's things I would change for next time but in general it was delicious.



Then lunch was a simple homemade pasta with some olive oil, pancetta, curly parsley and parmesan/romano cheeses. I got to shred my own peccorino romano off a block but the block of parmesan was too expensive at the store.

That looks great!

Dunno if it is me, but I usually buy 5 pounds of parmigiano and about the same of pecorino at the same time, and recently the pecorino seems to disappear quicker...

The pecorino is great on pizzas, where I find the parmigiano kinda lacking..

Not as much knife skill as you'd think. You just need a very sharp knife and to only slice it in one direction. If you saw the fish it kind of falls apart...No Bueno. Also wiping your knife clean after each cut helps.

By "sushi grade" do you mean "frozen" ?

Because sushi grade had no real meaning and the only way to kill parasites properly is to cook or freeze.

"sushi grade fish" is a term that doesn't really mean anything. there's no grading system that uses this term. any caught-frozen fish would be sufficient.

I find that two things define the quality of the salmon when picking it for sushi..

Freshness (smell, and look at eyes) and the look of the tail to see if it was caught wild or farmed (if in doubt, buy Alaskan).

Figures that someone would be interested in the one I cheated on a bit and also made up as I went along.

We've had some "Sri Lankan curry powder" (bought at a heritage festival) for ages and I want to get rid of it, so I tossed potatoes in that and olive oil and roasted them until crispy. Sauteed an onion with more potatoes, added ginger, lemongrass, and a chile, cooked awhile, added tomatoes (5 or so medium ones), cooked awhile longer, then stirred in spinach and previously cooked BEPs, cooked until spinach was wilted, added in roasted potatoes, a bit of lemon juice, and more spices.

So basically "cook a bunch of things with the spices you want."

Terrible cell phone picture, but heavenly burger. My wife was craving potato chips tonight, I was craving burgers. Nice 80/20 ground with bacon, shredded melted cheddar, purple onions and topped with baked potato chips.



EDIT: I cringe in shame of the Italian Dressing in the background. It's, um, ok and it gets my 10 year old to eat salad rather than pick at it.

Lately, my theory with salads is that, if you have to add a greasy gooey dressing to make it edible, you need to add MORE STUFF instead. Thin sliced carrots or radishes? Onions? Croutons? Avocado? (<3) Whatever it takes, you should be pleased by a relatively random forkful that has anything other than lettuce in it.

A recommendation could be getting some of the good balsamico and good olive oil, and blow your mind on the clarity and crispness of the veges after just a few drops.

Whole wheat ravioli with a spinach and garlic filling. Very good! Now I see why people have pasta rollers. I rolled it as thing as I possibly could and it was still thicker than I'm used to. They probably would have been more tender if they weren't 100% whole wheat, but hey I like them and will eat them The sauce was my standard red meat sauce.
