What are your go-to foods when youre feeling down?
For me its something as simple as a fresh bread from the bakery and a block of cheese or butter. Ironically I eat it all the time (muh depressions) but am a skinnyfag
Lamb Vindaloo with garlic naan.
The nearest place that does a good one is about an hour away and pricey, so I only go there when I'm feeling particularly down and out.
I recomment spicy foods when feeling depressed. The capsaicin will force endophine production.
So I'm in Japan and I am organizing a Christmas party for Friday. I sent a friend out to pick a cake we can eat in 2 days, and he just came back with a fucking strawberry shortcake that is going to be runny as fuck by then.
Is there anyway I can store this thing? Can you freeze strawberry shortcake?
I don't know anything about cake but yeah you can freeze it for now
source: my daddy works in inventory control and the store chain freezes almost all it's deserts before they end up in the stores
So /ck/, do you think it would be possible to smoke meat using coconut shell? Would it impart a bad flavor? Since people commonly use fruit tree woods, I assume this would work too
Yum yum, Crunchwrap Supreme.
Isn't it so good?
Hey guys, I just got some Dry Aged Filet Mignon. How should I cook it?
Jesus christ, are you going to eat those things?
Anyway, roast filet in over at low temp until just past rare.
Finish by searing very briefly on an insanely hot pan; you should end up right at a medium rare throughout with a great crust.
She created Feminist Cuisine. What do you think she'll do next?
I started making a treat for Christmas and I've run into a bit of a wall. I've melted down some white chocolate in a double-boiler and got thru coating about 10 chocolate truffles before the white chocolate began to quickly turn into a doughy texture, kind of like mashed potatoes if you like them on the firmer side.
I can't work with it like this and I'm not sure on my next step. What did I do wrong? How do I fix this?
I've volunteered to make Christmas dinner this year, and I was thinking of doing a braised beef dish, as it sounds like a nice hearty main course for winter time. I've never made a big dish of braised beef, so I was just wondering about any tips. Thinking of doing something with red wine and porcini mushroom, but I'm open to all kinds of suggestions. Also still pretty up in the air about side dishes, so suggestions there are totally welcome too.
If you've never done it before, don't worry, pot roast beef is extremely simple: you brown the beef (usually a chuck roast), cover it with flavorful liquid, then leave it to simmer for a few hours.
A good starting point would be to watch the Good Eats episode on pot roast, and look up recipes for Beouf Bourguignon for a classic version.
>I've volunteered to make Christmas dinner
>two days before Christmas I still have no idea wtf i'm doing
i wanna be the fly on the wall watching your family eating a kfc big bucket and making small talk
>probably the technique that requires the most amount of instructions and experience in the age of widespread thermometers for ovens and grills
yeah, nah. ur fucked op. go with something deep fried, pan fried, steamed, baked, grilled, smoked or sous vide instead.
What are these snacks called?
Just finished making these for Christmas dessert. Truly a horrifying amount of butter and sugar. And I thought Americans had the lock on diabetes.
What did/will you make for Christmas?
I've never tried Nanaimo bars. They just seem like diabeetus. Costco sells them cheap though.
if u support mass immigration that just go ahead and blend the cake all up
no more layers
mfw from Nanaimo eating these bars at local bakeries.
What interesting ways do you eat eggs/interesting recipes?
Pic is egg drop soup.
Why is it bad to enjoy anything sweet on this board?
I've been made responsible for bringing the dessert to Christmas dinner and I'm not sure what to make.
My family is a very unadventurous, meat-and-potatoes crowd.
Ideas? I'm thinking maybe pic related, apple crisp.
What's the best pizza dough recipe out there?
Most traditional Christmas dinner (and Thanksgiving for that matter) food is boring nasty shit. What are you making for Christmas that actually tastes good?
This year I'm serving roast duck with cranberry-orange relish, a spinach pie (spanikopita with puff pastry instead of phylo), braised burdock root (in place of a potato dish), a loaf of challah, and one other vegetable side yet to be determined.
And I'm baking sourdough cinnamon rolls first thing in the morning.
Just got 20 pound ham out of oven. Only on rye bread and lots of mustard. Nothing left on new years eve, boring as shit but that's how i roll coming christmas time
