I make a badass tuna melt, but other than that I don't cook much.

You know what sounds good, is Chicken Veronique. I should try that sometime.

i wanted to make a stew a few weeks ago, but i couldn't find a recipe i liked (really wanted to make a guinness stew, but none of the recipes i found were satisfactory). i ended up taking two recipes (one guinness recipe, one alton brown normal stew recipe), modifying what needed to be modified, adding in what i thought should be added in, etc.

it was fucking awesome.

i haven't made lasagne in a long time, and that's a goddamn shame. i should do that soon.

Here's an easy recipe for you that's also delicious, and you can cook it on one of them George Foreman grills or a griddle or a skillet. It basically is just grilled cheese sandwiches, but the herb butter makes all the difference.

Mix some soft butter with some dill, chopped chives, minced garlic, and a little parmesan cheese (real, not the Kraft stuff). If you don't have all these herbs just use whatever. Spread on two slices of bread (it doesn't hurt to cut the crusts off) and make a sandwich with sliced havarti cheese and either some roasted red peppers from a jar or fresh sliced tomatoes. Grill these in the Foreman grill or in the skillet.

I am no culinary genius but I am not too shabby at cooking.

I like to make pancakes with pineapple rings in them.

Baked cream cheese dip.

grilled sammiches.

I'm probably the best person I know at cooking things on the barbecue, always get em cooked enough and not too much. But now that I've been bragging about it I can never barbecue again because if I fucked up, now people have expectations.

Almond Tilapia:

1. Cover tilapia (or other thin fish) with flour
2. Throw fish in pan over medium heat
3. Start adding shaved almond slices
4. Turn fish over after ~5 mins
5. Add more almonds
6. Take out after another ~5 mins
7. Place on plate
8. Mix any remaining almonds in the same pan
9. Cover fish with almond mix

Fucking fantastic... and cheap too. If this dish doesn't get you laid, you fail at life.

A vegetarian Thai curry is probably top on my list of stuff to master.

I heat up some vegetable oil
two tablespoons of red thai curry paste, cook for a few minutes
sliced onion, maybe some red pepper, carrot, boiled potatoes, sautee for a bit
one can coconut milk
some sliced tofu
bean sprouts
roughly two tablespoons fish sauce. I add this about five minute before I serve it. It smells kinda bad at first, but after it's cooked, it's fine.

I'd like to experiment with thai eggplant and thai basil.

edit: oh yeah, Colin is the best griller, period.



i challenge colin to a grill off. Not to be cocky, people just tell me I'm good.


I am an oddly amazing cook when I actually do it. People rave over my food. But I never do it for myself. Why waste time on that when I could spend 5 minutes on something frozen. But when I do cook, whether its a homemade meal, or even just grilling burgers and dogs, I make damn good food.

I haven't cooked a meal in almost a year. gilling I've done several times, but that's easy.

i am not so good at grilling but i would love to become a charcoal grill master.


A friend of mine got me a gas ignited charcoal grill for a baby gift and it is seriously the best thing ever. 5 minutes with the gas gets the charcoals ignited and on their way so there's no lighter fluid taste. That thing was my best friend, confident, (lover) 4 out of 7 days a week this past summer. I want to become a polygamist so I can marry the fucking thing.

Grilled swordfish with my above mentioned marinade all day long.

EDIT: Next year I am building a smoker. I cannot wait.



I got one of those grills as a gift when we moved into our house. It really is the best thing ever. The ease of gas lighting and the flavor of charcoal. I've gotten pretty good at cooking steaks on it.

On the other hand, I have a smoker I received as a gift as well and have yet to use it. I am pretty intimidated by the thought of putting so much time into trying to smoke something and not having it turn out any good.

Also, pictures people! Post pictures of these dishes as you make them!
