Anyone cooking up something good? Maybe this topic won't be as popular as the music or anime topics, but I thought I'd post here the stuff I have going on this month (should be a good one) and see what's going on with you or your significant others or family. I'm always looking for new stuff to make.

 

Went blueberry picking last week and made a ton of stuff. Ordered a pan to make cheesecake, but by the time it came, all the blueberries were gone. Good thing I bought a massive amount of strawberries at Costco on Thursday.

 

Sitting in the oven right now is my first ever attempt at a cheesecake. Made a white chocolate strawberry swirl cheesecake. I hope this works...

I'm definitely more the chef than the baker.

I have a personal chef, we call him Chef Mike.

Mike likes to hang above our stove in the kitchen.

 

He always cooks food for me.

10 years ago the librarian at the school I worked at got me a book at the book fair: A man, a Can, a Mirowave. It had all these recipes on how to make stuff (chicken, beef, whatever) with a can of soup as seasoning in the microwave. You may want to get it for Mike.

Now that just looks freaking amazing!

 

 

So, my son decided (through incessant screaming) that I needed to be awake at 3am. Since I now can't get back to sleep, I thought I'd check if my cheesecake set. It looks like it's good! I'm going to try to resist having some with breakfast, but no promises.

Damn, everything looks tasty too! Especially the crab rangoons and jalepeno bacon chicken thingys (thingies?). Woodus, you need to fly your tush out to New Hampshire and cook for me! I even have a nice lumpy couch you can sleep on!

Looks good in here.  That cheesecake turned out well for a first time.  Usually my first attempts are disasters, especially when it comes to baking.

 

I did a culinary program several years ago, went to work in kitchens after that.  I work in retail now but I still cook from scratch every now and then.  It's a fun hobby.

 

I made wonton soup a few weeks ago.  I decided to go overboard with the intricate details.  I simmered the stock separately to keep it from getting cloudy from the wonton skins, and there's no bits of broccoli floating around because I steamed the vegetables separately then shocked them in an ice bath.

Had some of my cheesecake today finally. It was good, but a bit thicker than I'd expected. My guess is that's more from 2 cups of melted white chocolate chips that went into the mix, but it's delicious!!

Made some blueberry turkey burgers with a lemon-basil blueberry mayonnaise. They were incredibly juicy and that mayo was to die for. Had the zest of an entire lemon in about a half cup of mayo with a tablespoon of dried basil and some whole blueberries.

 

Also this week I got challenged by a friend to try out this 1 pot pasta recipe. I'll post the link below the picture, but basically you throw all this stuff (including uncooked pasta) into the pot and go from there. No straining, no draining, no extra dishes. 1 cutting board and 1 large skillet was it. It was surprisingly easy and delicious. Wish I had some fresh basil and parmesan cheese, but we made do and it was yummy.

I substituted a pound of small bow tie pasta and left everything else the same. It was just fine. We're going to make it again for friends and put in about 50% more tomatoes and 8 oz of feta cheese at the end for a little Mediterranean flair.

Sorry I missed your reply, we just used imitation crab meat, and we like it very krabby :) so if you want it more cream cheesy cut back on the meat

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg wonton wrappers
  • water
  • 30 Chunks Krab meat
  • 1 pkg Philadelphia cream cheese (8oz)
  • 3 Green onions
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Sugar

Directions

  1. Finely chop the krab meat and green onions.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form a lumpy paste.
  3. Place a teaspoonful of the mixture into the center of a wonton wrap. Wet the edges and fold either to a triangle or bring all edges to the top to form more of the basket style crab rangoon.
  4. Cook the crab rangoons in oil for about 2 minutes.

 

As for the other one, don't have that one written up in my recipe app

 

But I just cooked a chicken breast (boiled for 15-20 min), cubed it 3/4 to 1 in size, then a chunk of pepper jack cheese on one end and a jalapeno on the other end. Took an uncooked piece of bacon and cut it in half, wrapped each half around the stack of chicken, jalapeno and chesse and stuck a toothpick thru to hold all together and deep fried it for about 2-3 minutes

Many thanks, kind sir.

 

Maybe sometime I should make my amazing poutine and put it on here. It is simply smashin'!

Been waffling a bit the past 2 days. Who knew waffle irons were so useful!

Then last night I needed a leftover midnight snack. Waffled turkey and stuffing sandwiches!

Those all look good, Platty. Not sure if I'd like the lamb one (only because I've never tried lamb) but I'm open to trying new cuisine.

You should try it. Lamb is delicious.

MMM...lamb.  Homemade cucumber and dill yogurt sauce to go with it.  HOHOHO.  I miss that.  Platty, you'll have to cook for me sometime, those are some surprisingly good dishes.  The uses of a smart phone...much easier than "getting out the camera...damn it's been a week and the battery is dead...charge and snap, or eat while it's still warm," guess which I would choose?

 

My last special meal was taking some chicken, lemon, thyme, oregano, sage, pepper, sea salt, a little butter, and just letting it cook slowly on the stove, covered, then topping with Jarlsberg, Romano, and Parmesan.  Eating it with a garlic mustard aoli.

Had this line 14 days straight for breakfast! Losing weight and loving it. 10 more days and the final weigh-in occurs!
