Whacha cookin?

June 21, 2016

For some years prior to my present situation I had just not kept much of a kitchen. Whether because of roomates or house habits etc.. being a whiz in the kitchen just wasnt a priority. Fast forward to present...I've found myself in a nice little spot..no roomies.. and most definitely no female presence likely on an ongoing basis. With no plans of moving base ever and a small kitchen present..I kinda went nuts. This pantry stocking and kitchen gear quest...wooooh! And I discovered something interesting..I got BOTH my parents talents..not just Dad's iron will but also Mom's kitchen witchery. Everything from wicked good kombucha to making rice. My latest thing..I want to salt my own duck eggs and use them for a wicked good and flavorful carbonera.

What are you cooking to gnosh on as you go your own way?

I like to make spicy stir fry. I mix it up and try all kinds of recipes. The best part is I liberally use ghost peppers and carolina reapers. It aint exactly fine dining but man is it good.

[–]Eidolon3436[S,🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I hear stories about these ghost peppers but frankly I lack the cojones to do much with peppers and hot stuff.

[–]KingreX320 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Im not a fan of pepper either. I dont see the appeal.

"let me just eat some shit that will catch my mouth on fire for a few minutes, MMMMM SO good"

Do you mix Sriracha sauce it it too?

Here are some of the things I like to do.

  1. Home-made peanut butter (avoid cancerous shitty brand stuff [the peanuts they use often are mouldy or something]), you simply shell some peanuts, put them in the oven on a baking tray for about 10-15 minutes on 200c (they should start smelling super nice when they're done, and they should be getting slightly darker). After letting them cool, put them in a salad spinner and shake em up or something to remove the outer skin, but if you don't mind a darker butter, leave the skins on. If you do remove the skins, and can only do it by hand, it takes ages. After that, just put them into a seed blender (one of those typically smaller blenders which turns stuff into powder) and blend until it's not powdery, but oily. I find it easy to do a small handful of nuts at a time. After it's all processed, put into a nice little seal-able bowl, add some olive oil or some other oil, bit of salt, and mix. After that, keep it in the fridge, and eat on whatever. I think it keeps for about 2 weeks or so.

  2. Home-made tortilla wraps are easy to make. You put flour, salt, melted butter/oil, baking powder, and warm water into a bowl, and mix it up well. You can make these as healthy as you like with wholemeal flour and good quality ingredients, and they're not too glutinous as they're pretty thin. Once mixed, take off chunks and grab the edge points pulling them into the middle to create a soft round edge all the way around. Flip over and use a rolling pin to thin out into a round tortilla. Chuck that into a pan, and cook on low/medium heat for a couple of minutes, flipping when it bubbles. You don't need oil in the pan, just a dry pan. You can do a stack of these and they'll keep for a bunch of days in the fridge. I don't need to remind you that you can put a ton of stuff into tortillas. They're very good. Follow this recipe for ratios.

  3. Home-made pizzas are super easy too. But they can take a bit longer, because of the wait times. Make a dough like Jamie's here. I like to add herbs to the base too, like Oregano. While you're waiting for it to rise, throw some onion, garlic and fresh chopped tomatoes into a frying pan with some oil in it. When the tomatoes become like the canned tomato consistency-ish, add some seasoning to taste with herbs and whatever, and then when it's cool enough, throw it into the blender and make it smooth. When pizza dough has risen and is ready to roll out, follow the same kind of procedure as with the tortillas to make it round and even, before using a rolling pin to flatten it into a good-sized base. Smear the sauce on top however the fk you like, and add fresh toppings of your choice, followed by diced cheese cubes and finally a sprinkling of herbs. One thing you can do to make pizza toppings nicer is to marinate them in a dressing of some kind for a couple of hours previously. If you have the foresight to do this, it need only take an extra 2-3 minutes. You can literally use any kind of dressing that you like, from salad dressing to BBQ sauce or whatever.

  4. Black-bottomed cupcakes/muffins are super good, but not healthy so skip this is you are at all health-conscious. This lady knows her stuff, and is more of a traditional woman. I recommend these because for many people, who simply have never tasted good quality cupcakes or muffins, these are a revelation.

  5. Home-made hummus is great because you can tailor it the way you like it, and has a good amount of protein. This recipe is pretty good, I've made it a ton of times with different variations. The lemon juice is a key ingredient for me, because I like sour and sharp tastes. If you make a big batch of this, you can leave it in the fridge for 3-4 days and it will be good snack food. You can also put it on buttered toast for breakfast. If you have chips or salad sticks, they're great to dip too.

Some of these ideas might be slightly better for more than one person, but can all be made for a single person too, and eaten over a couple of days.

I'd like to help if anyone gets a question.

Do you have any sources for this?

[–]givecake[🍰] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

FK! I think this source resets my thinking.

Edit: This is hopeful.

[–]SergeantDickhead1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

That is an interesting read. I didnt know there was a danger like that.

I suppose that there aint shit I can do anyway though, as everything in the world causes cancer these days. From tap water to deoderant, something will get you in the end. I might as well enjoy my dank peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Aye, the general counter doesn't seem to be stop eating stuff, just make sure you don't eat too much of one thing, and chuck a load of antioxidants in the mix.

[–]Mgtowredpillonroids0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Commercial peanut butter often has hardened plant fat in it, i.e. trans fat. About the moldy stuff I don't know. Organic peanut butter usually has no hardened plant fat in it.

You are a gent after me own heart. Or me own plate anyway.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy Link

Read Worm?

[–]Eidolon3436[S,🍰] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

Not sure what you mean bro..

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Ah, no worries. It's a web-serial. Eidolon is a main char, but it was a longshot ;p Super good read, btw.

[–]Eidolon3436[S,🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I will look it up. I pulled the username from a roleplaying game trait (Wraith: The Oblivion)...seemed apropos for a ghosting account on a "forbidden" subreddit.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Careful it's a blackhole - it'll suck you in.

[–]KingreX320 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy Link

Every time ive tried to make homemade pizza the crust comes out too thick. So I get more crust than actual pizza.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy Link

Would you mind explaining how you do it?

[–]KingreX320 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy Link

Flour, Water Yeast. The Usual. I then put the dough in the fridge for it to do what it needs to do. I take it out slap it around abit and put my sauce and toppings on it, toss it into the oven.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

:D Nice. Try following that Jamie Oliver recipe I linked to for a different result. The main difference that I'm thinking right now is that you don't usually put dough in the fridge to rise, but rather in a warm place ;) That and mixing the yeast with warm water at the start, and letting it foam a bit.

[–]KingreX320 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

I only do that cause thats how i saw my mother do it (Probably the wrong Subreddit to say that on)

Alright dude I will give that a try.

[–]givecake[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Ah, you may want to go over the details with your mam then. I bet she has some specifics that apply to that method.

Nothing complicated, mostly meat & veggies, egg-based stuff such as omelette with various additional ingredients, stuff like that. I rarely ever eat out because I don't know what's in it.

[–]hollybegin1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Anything I want depending on my mood.... ;D

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

It varies. Easy stuff most of the time. Been on a bit of an indian/asian style food kick lately though - but being new to this style most of the dishes i've tried so far haven't turned out very well lol

I keep intending to take some classes at the local community college but just never seem to get around to it. One day!!

[–]KingreX320 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ive been cooking since I was a single digit age dude. I can follow a recipe but I like to experiment. I make my own burgers and fried from scratch. I perfer baking though. Dont mean to brag but my banana bread.......IS TO DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!!

One of my favorites is what I call a grilled cheeze burger. Its lierally a grilled cheeze sandwich but with a burger in the middle. My best accident was hasbrowns, scrambled eggs and bacon all mixed in the same pan. Each was cooked separately on its own then for the hell of it I just threw em into the same pan and mixed it up. It came out pretty good.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I struggled a bit with this actually.


Sort of like the reddit of cooking. Users submit recipes and others comment/vote on them.

Game changer for me.

[–]cashmoney_x0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It's summer so lots of steak and grilled fish.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
