    Anyone else enjoy cooking? This morning I made an omellete that came out dynamite. I found this recipe a long time ago and use it all the time.

    How to Make the Perfect Omelet / Omelette - Recipes Directions

    And this is one of my favorite pasta recipes.its called Rotini with salsa di limon. Its got such a great flavor to it. The Feta and lemon zest add so much. And its easy to make! (Unless you don't have anything to zest a lemon with, like I did the first time I made it)

    I usually just wing it in the kitchen, but this one turned out pretty good:

    1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup
    1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
    Green Onions chopped (I think I used 2 or 3)
    Sliced Mushrooms (used as much as you like... I like mushrooms, so I think I used a whole package)
    Garlic (subjective amount... I just added a bit)
    Cubed steak (I think I bought a pack of pre-cut up steak)
    Vegetable Seasoning (no measurement, but enough to sprinkle over everything)
    Basil (just a dash)
    1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
    Pasta of your choice (I used Rotini)

    Directions (such as they are):
    1. Fry steak cubes until slightly browned on all sides (cook longer if you like you steak more well done).
    2. Add mushrooms, garlic, and vegetable seasoning, and Basil. Scamble fry until mushrooms start to cook.
    3. Add soups, balsamic vinegar, and green onions. Stir until everything is well mixed.
    4. Cover and simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
    5. Cook up pasta.
    6. (a) Serve sauce over pasta.
    (b) Mix pasta into sauce and serve.
    7. Eat.

    CHICKEN A LA CAVEMAN

    1. Find a chicken.
    2. Kill the downy sumbitch. This ain't always too damn easy, either. "Here, chicky-chicky-chicky-chicky" just don't cut it. You could try getting it with a dog, but then you gotta share it. And if you don't, you might end up with no chicken, no dog and no head, either. Some of them dogs do terrible things once they're riled up. This "man's best friend" Mickey Mouse - they all don't dig that bit, especially the ones with big, sharp teeth. So just sneak up on the chicken and clobber it with a club.
    3. Build a big fire.
    4. Eat your chicken raw. The fire's for those nosy darn dogs.

    That omelette is so terribly overcooked >_< But if you like it that way, hey, thats great! (I happen to like SOME foods overcooked, just not anything eggy)

    My friends and family say I make the best omelettes ever. I couldn't give a recipie, cause I always put different stuff in the middle.
    But a tip for cooking the eggs in an omelette. Medium heat, and cover the pan! That way, you steam the top of it, so you don't have to overcook the bottom in order to flip it (flipping a runny sheet of egg really sucks..) And as SOON as you flip it, add the fillings, cover for 30seconds (to help the cheese melt) flip the omelette in half to close it, leave in the pan for a few seconds to finish the cheese melting process, and serve.

    Biggest omelette I have ever made: 16inches. Instead of making indevidulal omelettes for everybody, I made one giant one in the 16inch pan we have. Suprisingly, that was the best omelette I ever made o_O 

    I will post other recipies I love later, as I am at work now. I love topics like these!

    My bro is a pretty awesome cook. I'll ask him later if he has any tips, but I've got something to share.

    Irish French Toast (Yeah, I know. I made the name up on the spot, because it's different from conventional FT :p )

    As Many As Needed, usually 3 per person: Bread. Wheat. (Stop whining) :D 
    2 to every 4 pieces of bread.
    1/4 cup milk for every 4 pieces of bread
    Splash of Vanilla. Make it bigger for every 4 pieces of bread
    Dash of salt. Same as the Vanilla. Unsalted. But if you skip the salt, then you can use salted.
    Butter, not in the mix, but at the ready

    Alright, you start with heating up a griddle, or pan. Continue to heat it until you can put a few drops of water on the pan, and it starts to evaporate. While this is happening, mix the eggs, vanilla, milk, and salt in a bowl. Whisk it until bubbles appear. Now take a butter knife, and spread it so it completely covers the pan, or wherever you plan to place the bread. Take the bread, and dip it, very quickly. Don't let it soak. It's OK if some of the pieces don't get covered. Continue to cook and flip, while continuing to apply butter after each flip, until the bread is brown on both sides.

    it is. easily the best dish I've EVER had.
    the lime leaves and lemongrass add this really nice, sweet flavor to the curry sauce. It can be pretty spicy, especially with the red curry paste, just so you know.
    to be honest...I'm not sure how tofu would taste in it...I can't imagine it'd be bad though. a lot of asian recipes implement tofu, and it's fairly good too.

    I make a pretty good beef yakisoba!

    It's like Recipe 24679 --- Beef Yakisoba: Meats except I usually fry the noodles in soy sauce and add baby carrots. It's really tasty though, everyone I've made it for has absolutely loved it.

    You must teach me your secrets. I struggle with flipping omlettes. Most of them turn into scrambled eggs with crap in them.

    Here's my very own version of the chilli beans enjoy!

    1 can of bake beans (any kind of brand will do i.e Heinz)
    Bird's eye chilis (any amt depends on yr level of tolerance, for me 10 pcs ha ha :lol )
    1 or 2 cloves garlic
    1 big onion
    1 tablespoon of hot sauce/chili sauce
    1 bottle of dried italian mixed herbs.
    1/2 cup of water
    1 tablespoon of olive oil (if unavailable any type oil or margarine will do)
    1 bottle of pepper

    Method:
    1) First peel of the onions & roughly chop them. also chop the garlic cloves & bird's eye chilis too.

    2) Heat a saucepan under low heat. then put in the 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

    3) Put the chopped onions in first & saute them until slightly caramelised

    4) Now put in both the chopped bird's eye chilis & garlic into the mix.

    5) After a few mins when you can smell a fragrant smell, pour in the bake beans.

    6) Pour in the 1/2 cup of water as well & increase the heat a bit.

    7) Add in the 1 tablespoon of hot sauce/chili sauce (& sprinkle some pepper too).

    8) Last but not least sprinkle in the dried italian mixed herbs into the mix.

    9) VOILA! all done, that's all there is to it. best served w/toast, sausages, scramble/or sunny side-up eggs. uum yum yum you'll have a hearty American breakfast. :p

    I'm not sure how this is called outside Greece...but here's what you need

    One pack of lasagnia [preferably a mixture of colours, green\orange with plain white]
    At least 3 bell peppers [I use a combination of orange and yellow]
    4-8 sausages
    *Mushrooms
    *Bacon
    At least two different kinds of grated cheese
    One small pack of cooking\full fat\double cream
    About 200-300 ml of milk

    Cook the lasagnia in boiling water for around 8 minutes while chopping up the peppers and sausages into small pieces. Fry them in oil while adding black pepper and chilli pepper and sprinkle ketchup or some other preferably sweet tomato sauce on them.

    Once the contents of the frying pan [Mushrooms and bacon are optional] are ready, mix it with spaghetti and cheese in one of those big glass plates they have for use in ovens. Once the plate is full, empty the cooking cream and the milk on top of it, filling it almost all the way up. You should also butter up the plate.

    Just heat in the oven for about 45 minutes and it's ready.

    $50+phone+phonebook=dinner!

    I like to make my omelette as a scrambled egg that's left whole.I''ll add some cooked chopped sausage,porkchop,ham,or bacon to the egg before pouring it in the skilet.

    Anyone ever tried making breakfast pizza?
    Pour scrambled egg over cooked potato shreds that have been fully toasted,then sprinkle some sausage,bacon peices over the egg. Put the lid on and cook on low till the egg is done.
