What's your favorite thing to cook?
 
Well I have a bit of a gender reversal in my house. I'm master of the kitchen! The GF knows to stay away... So my favorite thing to cook is STEAK.

Here's a BBQ pic but lately I've been doing a reverse sear using the over first, and then cooking the steaks in a cast iron pan to med-rare...

I also do a mean Vegetable beef barley soup for the cold winter months...

So yesterday I tried making Veal Schnitzel and Spaetzel for the first time. Turned out okay! :yahoo:

So what do you like to cook?

Was in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and had seafood almost every day. It was inspiring! I need to make fish more often but here in cow country we don't get the greatest fresh seafood! :dizzy:

If you cant get it fresh its not worth it, I dont know what type of fish you guys get up there but you cant go wrong with tuna or halibut. Only cook tuna for a minute or 2 each side.

You made Schnitzel and Spätzle? German heritage? :D

I like it whenever I have the time and energy to cook myself something. I like baking cookies and making apple pie, but my favorite is when I get to make my salmon and mashed potatoes dinner. Which I can't... this month. Yay!

I wish I cooked more. When I was young my Mother's MS got bad enough and I became the main person shopping and cooking. Even made an entire Thanksgiving meal for 10 people my self. My problem now is that I don't know how to cook for less then 3 people. I think I have honestly cooked once since moving out. Made too much, most went to waste, and never really tried again.

On topic, my favorite thing to cook is stew. It was usually made with what was left over from a large roast the previous night.

I cook about 90% of the time around here, and I make all sorts of stuff. I'm always trying new things, and hardly use recipes except maybe as a starting point. Trying to eat a lot more veggies these days, too. I like making things like curries, pasta, soups, and stir fries, where you can pretty much throw whatever you want in there. And I make amazing tacos and guacamole, 'cause I'm from Texas, y'all. Love to cook steaks, too. Don't ever order them out because they charge too much for something that's super easy to make myself. And they overcook them. Hard to get a proper rare steak most places.

We eat a lot of salmon too, because it's awesome and practically free. We have a chest freezer full of it. I need to dig down past all the coho and get to some sockeye or king for dinner tomorrow. Fresh is better, sure, but it's still great frozen. Heck, we have salmon jumping up on the banks in the summer, but the rest of the year it's frozen or nothing, and I've never seen anyone around here turn their nose up at it.

Dang man, put it in the freezer! Make a big bunch of whatever, pack it away in reasonably-sized containers, and then you have instant homemade dinners whenever you don't want to cook! :thumbsup:

Exactly! I love when I have no one to share food with and have lots of leftovers to either freeze... or use to create a new meal out of! Nothing better than being lazy and using what you already have.

I love to try something new every time I make, bake, or bbq anything. And I always make enough for at least 6 people so that I can have leftovers (I really, really love leftovers... so lazy). Especially when I bbq! If I have anything that I can bbq that isn't part of what I'm eating that day, I will bbq it to have for my food the next day or two.

Food is so good.
