Cooking/Baking Tips & Tricks!
Anyone have any? I´m always trying to get creative in the kitchen. Could be anything, from simple to extravagant..

For instance I just got some organic eggplant, There´s a plethora of ways to make eggplant.. but I had never tried any.. so I just went simple, baked them in the oven with some coconut oil, sprinkled lightly some salt and pepper.. sounds basic enough, but I never had it made that way, haha.

You got any ways of making your favorite dishes or snacks? Maybe you´ll give me and others some fun ideas..

pluto cancer had an unhealthy love of jello, spam, canned vegetables, pineapple..

also very rigid ideas about nutrition and meal structure.. (milk as a beverage! Yuck!)

the limitations of their time show in small ways like that.

even pluto in gemini- for as "hip" as that era was, seems laughably old fashioned today.

I don´t miss my grandparent´s cooking- it was terrible.. boring white mid-century american food.

love those generational cooking highlights... I got lost in looking those over a few months back...

The 70s and 80s were gnarley too...

80s is where is started losing its luster, and just became plastic and lazy.. much like the quality of the food

I just thought of easy food combo´s. When I fry bacon I´ll add maple syrup towards the end and when I take the bacon out of the pan I´ll add cayenne on top! So it´s just maple spicy bacon and it´s soooooo good! Super easy and it tastes really good if you like a little spice. Also if you´ve got rice (jasmine rice is best for this) I put soy or tamari sauce on rice and add sriracha sauce, it´s so good.

Grapefruit, preferably the pink one. Cut in half, then slit each membrane and circle with the knife around the edge of the albedo. Add honey on top, dive in with a spoon. Delicious, I could eat this everyday.

I love Brussel sprouts too. I eat them raw.. that´s the the thing.. baking or steaming veggies may taste yummy, but they lose all of their nutritional value when not just taken raw. So I try to limit that...

I am eating them -for- my health, after all.. :4:

Cauliflower is another favorite veggie.. :15:

"unfortunately she passed away before I cared enough to ask her for good recipes"

Exactly what happened to me with my grandmother.

I am trying to reconstruct some of the things she made retroactively, now that I have a little bit more general cooking knowledge...it will never be as good though.

I eat raw garlic for medicinal purposes.

Great natural antibiotic.

Knocks out those infections, if you start usuing it immediately upon feeling under the weather.

Also, if you ever have a sore throat, leave the garlic in your mouth, letting it touch your throat until finished...that sore throat will be gone in minutes.

Making your own salad dressing is super simple.

As a base/simple recipe (just three ingredients are needed), just olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some dijon mustard works. You can experiment with different types of vinegar and add in different types of spices and herbs. I even get a nice tahini/greek yogurt/honey mix with other ingredients like olive oil into the mix for a salad dressing. (tahini can be made at home too).

Same with pasta sauce, very easy to make. Just get some fresh tomatoes, basil, oregano, and whatever else you like. I like to finely chop sweet peppers mushrooms and onions to add in, along with even a little bit of spicy stuff like chili powder. I like to add chipotle tabasco sauce sometimes too for an extra kick or other spicy peppers.

I like a leek pie. Unroll a homemade or store-bought pie crust and unroll in a round baking pan. Finally chopped sauteed leaks (even some boiled potatoes, goat cheese, black pepper, and eggs on top of the pie crust, bake.

For a nice smoothie - green apples, kale and/or spinach, pineapple, ginger (add an amount suitable to your tastes), lime and water, puree into a watery blend.

Really, just experiment.

"makes for evil smelling piss later, too and.."

Yes my son is fascinated by this...

"added plus.. it will glow under black light!"

This I did not know..or I knew it at some point and forgot about it...

Now...do I tell the kid about that or not...

I think it would be bad, no-fun parenting not to :61:

Sautéed asparagus too. Gotta make sure it still has some snap to it when it´s done.

I make avocado dressings all summer. Don´t know any of those recipes off the top of my head though. I´ll look one up in my "database" :61:

They´re usually pretty simple... Avocado, cilantro, lime, some type of oil or cream base...

My wife has some cilantro coming up in the garden, so the time is near...

I´m all about eating that sweet, caramelized garlic with dinner. They´re like candy. Everyone else in the family thinks I´m nuts, so they´re always all mine. :4:

I´ll also take the ones that have been simmering in my Greek stew for a while. My favorite part.

Hell, I´ll even eat a raw clove now and then. My grandfather used to do that with dinner...especially when we were having lentil soup. Actually went together very well.

Vampires beware... :81:

I love Brussels sprouts too.

Baked, or sautéed like ram was talking about.

Sautéed asparagus too. Gotta make sure it still has some snap to it when it´s done.

My go-to vegetable when I´m searing some steaks in the cast iron...

oh another one.. use the cast iron skillet.. a little oil and some salt..
and roast whole garlic cloves in that. CI is perfect because it can handle the heat this requires. cook until the outside of the garlic clove is scorched, peel off the outer peel, and either eat the garlic directly or spread on toast. The garlic will be soft (spreadable) and sweet.

also great on avocado toast.

When I need a healthy snack I bake broccoli. I just add some sea salt and olive oil on top and bake it in the oven, it´s so good and tastes so much better than when it´s steamed. You can also do it with cauliflower and add spices like curry powder and cayenne. It also works for Brussel sprouts. People always complain about Brussel sprouts but they´re actually super yummy when they´re baked.

"grind whole pepper in the mill."

Yes, I have this. Tastes so much different than ground pepper

well the plastic ones do work, I just don´t like buying them twice..

so I get a nice one, once..

plastic ones wear out or get weird after a while. but I notice now
that they also include a plastic one integrated into the peppercorn container
many times, so like the pump bottle windex comes it, use it, throw it out, get another.. or use it for a while, then toss it.

I got mine back when the built-in grinders were not common.
