    I make a great Rosso Spaghetti, not looking to brag.

       Half boiled pasta with ketchup, since I'm a horrible cook.

    So I found out about this neat little breakfast casserole sorta thing and made it.

    Basically, you take croissant roll dough, layer it on the bottom and sides of an oven.. pan thing (that you make brownies in etc), then put eggs, ham, whatever, layer it again with the dough, put eggs again or stop, bake it, put in fridge if any leftover to nuke in the morning


    it tastes like amazing and I'll grab some pictures tomorrow

    Some carrots some onions slowly done in a bunch of olive oil. I think I was cooking them four roughly 40 minutes or so, with some theme and rosemary. But have to say, I've never actually had carrots I liked more. There's so little because I used a small pan to test.

    beef stew that was slowly cooked in a crock pot with potatoes, carrots, peas, onions, etc, with a nice savory sauce and a chunk of really dense (and fresh and moist) brown/black bread as a side

    i found a big fruiting blackberry bush at the end of our street, and since it was out on public property i went up there and picked a good few - it seemed no one else was taking advantage of it!

    so i made an apple & blackberry pie for me and my housemates. i cheated and used ready-to-roll pastry, but that kept it a very simple thing to do!

    the pastry's already been rolled and put into my little ceramic dish, and there's a layer of blackberries, sliced apple (granny smith, since i only went to the spar and they don't sell cooking apples) and another layer of blackberries, with just a little sugar sprinkled on top




    i thought i'd try being a bit fancy and making a lattice top thing. i'm not sure if you're meant to properly weave them in and out, but like i said, this was a quick job!




    all corners trimmed and pushed into place, brushed with some milk and a little more sugar sprinkled over




    ta-da!

    There was another one, but I ate it before I took the picture. I like never cook, so this is a masterpiece for me. Bacon and egg on half a bagel, with some pepper and tabasco sauce on top. It was pretty damn delicious. This is just practice though cuz tomorrow night I have to cook dinner for my girlfriend. Gonna do eggs Benedict. Just gonna pick up a packet of hollandaise sauce mix so I shouldn't fuck up too bad. I've been really obsessed with eggs though lately.

    that looks good, we've got a black berry bush (well used to, not sure now) in our back garden and one down the road. We've also got strawberries which is great when they ripen, deliciously sweet.

    A nice tip is to freeze the fruit you find and then blend them with a little milk and sugar to make some super quick icecream.

    I made some black pudding bread. It turned our really well; slight flavour throughout the bread from oil coming out into the dough then you get nice chunks aswell.
    I mostly had it toasted but I grilled some cheese on top and had it with onion soup too.

    it was indeed an onion gravy
    it was fantastic so I had some of the gravy today.



    Sliced turkey sliced even smaller. Not bad, not amazing.
    because I wanted potatoes with it and couldn't find anything but hash browns, took them, made some.
    Then I figured I might as well use some of the leftover bread.

    It was quite fucking tasty.

    i finally made scrambled eggs the chef ramsay way and i'll admit that's the only true eggs i've ever tasted, a little too buttery (i added too much) but sooo delicious, too bad i didn't have sour dough bread to stick it on

    Was scrounging in the freezer for leftovers and found a cube of spinach and a small leftover piece of turkey.

    I think it turned out quite well. I think I bought thep asta itself last saturday on a farmer's market.

    This is one of my favorite recipes I ever learned from FoodWishes. (Yeah, it's half of a pork chop, not a full one. I decided to snap a pic on the second portion, not my first )

    I mean, how I cook it is nothing like how he cooks it, aside from the gravy. The pork chops are just your run of the mill pork chops (tenderized, seasoned, floured, breaded, baked.) The gravy is a roux with a generous amount of pepper and cayenne, and I like to add a bit of Brother Bru-Bru's hot sauce (this is my favorite hot sauce. goes good on everything. mix it in with your ketchup for a nice dip for your fries. hamburger seasoner. etc)

    Veggies in the gravy are sliced chives, diced dill pickles, and jalapenos that are julienne cut. (I like to sneak some seeds into the gravy to make it really spicy.)

    This is a real great thing though. The gravy takes about 30 minutes to make, and 15 of that is cutting the veggies. The rest is ensuring that you don't have too much flour or milk so it has the consistency of gravy.

    And it's fucking delicious.

    I served it with green beans and rolls.

    Never really posted in this sub section before, even though I am quite fond of cooking. Here's a vindaloo I made from scratch today, with a twist of my own spices and chilies. Gonna hope this doesn't return in the morning :S

    Just finished making some zuccini spread. It's a pretty good alternative at times from just grabbing some butter on bread or something. Plus there's almost no work involved.

    greek meatballs with yoghurt (and salad)




    ingredients
    500g lamb mince
    100g saltpork (but since we don't get that in the UK - afaik - i substituted it for bacon i had in the fridge. pancetta would probably be even better)
    1 large shallot (i substituted for half a white onion)
    1 jabanero chilli, seeded and minced (i don't know what type of chilli i bought)
    zest of one orange
    1 clove of crushed garlic
    2 tbsp mint (recipe called for fresh, but i only used dried)
    yoghurt to serve (i had greek, plain would probably be just as good if not better)




    lightly fry the shallot/onion, chilli and garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil, for about 1 minute. leave to cool




    put all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl and gently mix until it's all evenly distributed, season with pepper




    shape into 1 1/4" balls, i made 26, but it depends how tightly you roll and pack them. i would say smaller is better than larger, as they'll cook faster and more evenly, but whatever you feel comfortable with




    cook on a medium/medium-high heat in a frying pan (thicker bottomed better) until browned on all sides. it took me longer than i was expecting (10+ minutes) to get them all done. you'll also want to do them in batches, so they don't overcrowd the pan. i served mine with some chopped iceberg and cucumber (i love cucumber) and greek yoghurt with a little cucumber and mint mixed in. yum!
