Thread: What did you Bake/Cook Today?!?!?! :)

    I had some veggies and ground beef nearing the end of the line, so I cobbled together a white trash shepherd's pie with ground beef, onions, peppers, broccoli, and Kraft Homestyle mac and cheese. It was better than it had a right to be.

    ^^Ooh, the red wine to boot!! You eat in style, my friend. The meal looks tasty - great comfort food.

    A few days ago I made Split Pea Soup. Yum!! It's usually an annual thing... right around mid-October I crave it.

    Woke up hungry today so I cobbled together a quick vermicelli noodle stirfry with reconstituted shitakes, chinese sausage, egg, green onions and both types of soy sauce. It was okay. Needed some baby bok choi. Maybe I'll have veggies only for dinner or none at all.

    Do you cook out of enjoyment/as a hobby, or are you a professional chef? You seem to know a lot about it!! If the former, was it all self-taught & experimentation?

    Just a hobbyist. My grandfather was a chef so it's a learn or be minimalised kind of familial environment. If you can't reproduce what you've eaten elsewhere without a recipe, you're less than nobody.

    But thanks, I'm flattered.

    Ah, funny. That's cool though. I'm just a bit in awe of those with an intuitive knack for cooking. I mean, I don't consider myself a bad cook by any means, but I do tend to need recipes. Then I'm fine. My brother, on the other hand... he has never really needed/used recipes and comes up with some of the best dishes with some very bizarre ingredients that you'd never guess would work well together. I know in his first couple of years of doing it he had some serious Fails, so there was some trial by error for sure, but still... I think there's definitely a talent for it, and some are very gifted at it. It's only recently that I've begun to branch out a *little* bit in terms of not using recipes and just experimenting, and I've had some success - but I'll never be anywhere close to my brothers' talent.

    Don't be so quick to minimalise your own talents. You whipped up those recipes provided to you in a hurry and they turned out the first time, so this means you do have a knack, considering how unfamiliar you were with saffron.

    Just pay attention to everything you eat outside of what you've cooked and take them apart through taste. It won't be long with this and experimenting, that you'll get a feel of what spices or combinations delight your palate, so then your experimenting will become a combination of experience and fun. Also, for now, start messing with your current recipes. Which spice or herb tantalises? If so, add a bit more. Yuck, dislike too much thyme, then reduce.
