Do you guys reckon Guy Fieri knives are ok for at home non-professional use? They are cheap and look cool
made some maqlouba (arabic food)
consists of cauliflower, chicken thighs, and rice with spices. now praise me
yeah seriously OP don't get up your own ass about plating, it's a fucking rice and chicken dish, put the rice down, put the chicken on top of it, I have no idea why it's all congealed together
Making some ham and split pea soup later today, is there any food more comforting than hot soup on a cold winter day?
>he buys the green split peas
i don't know what it is about green food. just doesn't look quite right.
For me its the Big Buford, the best fast food sandwich.
When I first started cooking, I tried to follow a recipe as if it were a scientific experiment, and tried to make all measurements with absolute precision. Eventually, I realized that recipes are simply guides, and seasoning and cooking times are all matters of personal taste. Now I hardly ever measure anything with anything other than my eye, and by taste, and I've had much better results, and find it much more enjoyable to cook.
When did you finally quit worrying and just did what the fuck you want while always getting good results?

You better have some grape or cherry Hici in that cup - unless you go to one of those poor Wendy's without the Platinum God Machines. Also where the fuck is your frosting? How are you gonna eat those salty ass fries without something sweet?
Today, I'm going to teach you guys how to make shrimp etouffee. We'll be using a recipe from Paula Deen, available at
For those of you outside the US, reference this picture. Sorry that it's a little small.
Please ignore my dirty stove top.
wo quick changes: I substituted gluten-free all purpose flour for normal flour and doubled the recipe.
First, lay out all your ingredients. Prepare all the vegetables as listed, chopping your yellow onion, green pepper, and celery. Mince the garlic or use preminced from a jar. 1 tbsp of chopped garlic from a jar is equal to one clove. Mince your parsley (i used a blender for this because I'm lazy) and mince your green onions.
Peel your shrimp, if needed. I used large shrimp. Save the shells and put them in a bag in the freezer if you'd like to make delicious seafood stock.
Now let's actually start cooking. Grab a stockpot and heat it on low. Add the oil and flour, then whisk together. It should be sort of paste like. Whisk this CONSTANTLY over LOW heat for 15-20 minutes until it turns a caramel brown color and makes a noticeable smell.
Apology for my English
Thinking on quitting soda cuz I got fat cheecks and neck, I drink a 600 ml Diet Coca Cola bottle from monday to saturday (lunch time)
Water isn't enough for me (at lunch time), what healthy drink do you recommend?
I was the same as you anon I drank alot of soda switched to diet then tried to curb how much diet soda, and no matter how hard I tried I had to have a soda for lunch.
This is what helped me I started drinking fruit juice anything that is in season I juiced it along with some carrots celery and beets if I really needed that soda fix I would carbonate it. After a year I can drink water for lunch and I drink soda once a month when I eat MC donalds.
Hope this helps friendo
Ask a Mellow Mushroom employee anything.
Why would someone shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane?
Premiums. Somewhat upscale decor + higher-quality ingredients and products = a bit more the customer will have to pay. I don't like the prices much either but the product is quality so I don't mind paying a little extra every now and again.
Part of the chain's aesthetic. It was started in 1974 by some Georgia Tech students after all.
Why do Americans eat Koolickles?
A Five Guys just opened in my town. I never had it so I decided to give it a try.
Why does this place get so much praise? I was expecting something special for the $12 I spent, but the fries were limp & soggy, and while the burger was acceptable at best, it really wasn't worth the money.
Is this why they have positive magazine reviews plastered across the walls, to make you think it's a good restaurant?
Also, I've never heard or thought of mushrooms being a burger topping. Is that some kind of regional thing in the company's home base?
>been starting to cook for myself for the week lately
>made a few simple dishes and taken pics
>sharing them to a group chat of just my family
>they're all impressed
>tell my parents I'll cook them chicken parmigiana tomorrow night
>been watching some youtube vids of people making it
I think I've got it down, /ck/. I just need a decent marinara sauce to go...

Arguably the oldest and most destructive food meme. A good, thick sauce will slide right off the spaghetti.
Serve it with pasta instead, and make the marinara sauce by hand from a high-rated recipe if you have the time. Be wary that unless your family is full of hard-asses and culinary masterminds, they're probably e-jerking you off - or maybe they're just plebs.
Really knock their fucking socks off, senpai.
I'd suggest not to. Keep the sauce simple and don't forget the ham. If there's no ham it's not a parma, and it should be served with a salad. Then your parents will know that you're looking after yourself and eating relatively healthy.
Make 'em proud, anon.
Okay I'll cook pasta, no problem. I've watched a load of vids on youtube, but there's a lot of plebs who can't cook for shit on there.

Nah, my mother can cook some decent food. We're all about healthy eating too.

What's the best knife you can buy in the $100-$125 dollar range, also German, Swedish, American , or Japanese knives??
Also General knife thread
For lighter stuff like that (provided it's boneless meat), a Japanese style blade is probably what you're looking at. There are some pretty cheap options that get the job done. You're probably looking at something in this sort of ballpark. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000Y7KNQ/ref=s9_nps_hd_bw_g79_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-2&pf_rd_r=0DA3CQNR48QNTV29AQVE&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=77b9e727-3844-3e7b-b75e-2a06ec7f4c9a%2F76a85171-a360-316d-8f92-5440aa691bd8&pf_rd_i=13033531
