The official FZ1 COOKING THREAD!

Ok, so who out there likes to eat? Ah hah...more than just me. I figured as much!

Who of you just eats whatever your wife/galpal serves you?
Which of you thinks Mac and Cheese is gourmet if you use milk instead of water?

This thead isn't for you.

Bikes are a passion, so is cooking great food!

Lets hear from other members who know what good cooking is, and how to do it. What do YOU make that kicks ass? Don't post about food your S/O makes, lets here what YOU make.

Tonight I am 3 hours into making a chili that is just gonna kick butt. Basic stuff is 2 pounds of tri-tip and some pork sausage. Onion, tomato sauce+paste, and then different spices of course. Ooooo baby it's good! I serve it over rice, and it'll be lunch and dinner again tomorrow and maybe the next day.

Anyway, my real "claim to fame" with my friends is BBQ and grilling stuff on my Kamado. I just prefer cooking with real FIRE. Real lump charcoal, real smoke.

Ok....who else?

sweet. a men's cooking thread. my main dish is beef stew. can't be topped. i don't start from scratch though. i use wyler's soup starter for hearty beef stew.

http://www.wylers.com/soupstarters.asp

then i cook up a 1.4 lbs or so of stew meat, then throw in the stew mix, and begin customizing. i throw in a good 3 or 4 cups frozen corn, maybe 1.5 cups of frozen chopped green beans, chopped red potatoes, chopped celery, chopped onions. about 10 minutes before the meal is done, i toss in some mini (3/4" or so) frozen shrimp (about 3 cups). gooooood stuff, manard!!!

I respectfully suggest a new, separate forum for this topic!

Instead of The War Room, we can have The FZ1 Kitchen!

My first contribution is a simple snack that can save you money!

1) Get a Hot Air Popcorn Popper.

2) Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Popping Corn (Hot Air or the regular--no matter. Stay away from other, cheaper popcorn. They are crap. Redenbacher's the best for me, so far!)

3) Land o' Lakes Unsalted Sweet Butter (CAREFULLY melted in the microwave.)

Stay away from microwave popcorn! Sometimes the butter-flavored crap leaks out of the bag and makes a mess in the microwave!

Your Hot Air Popper cooks the same amount of time as microwave popcorn. And you can regulate the amount of salt and butter that best serves your arteries!


Next episode: Make your own tacos!

i also love to make zatarain's jumbalaya mix.

http://www.zatarain.com/products/pro.../Jambalaya_Mix

i use the basic mix, and add a bunch of my own ingredients. same deal with dirty rice mix with cheese...

http://www.zatarain.com/products/pro...ce_With_Cheese

really good stuff. i wind up adding chopped red potatoes and onions and stuff to the dirty rice mix.

as for a meal that i make from scratch, i'll post that one tomorrow. the recipes on my laptop at work (i keep an Excel document there listing all my favorite meals, with a second worksheet that details the recipes for all those meals).

and nobody touches my omelettes. i make them perfect, with chives, shredded cheese, onions, green peppers, breakfast sausage, etc. yummy.

I do think we need a serparate forum for our recipes. Instead of reading thru one thread, we can just click to it!

We will need a new name for it, though. I suggest The FZ1/Fazer Kitchen but I'm sure others can come up with a better name that is exclusive to this board!

Thumbs up

Nothing, and I mean nothing impresses the little ladies like a man who's handy in the kitchen.

I have lots of recipies, from plain to gourmet, banquet to intimate dining... but this is the all time, killer, panty-dropper, ultimate concoction that will solve all the world's problems, get you laid, or land you that big promotion. Dinner is fine, but the dessert seals the deal!!!! This is simple, even a complete goof can make it.

Peach Pie

Ingredients
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small package vanilla pudding (not instant)
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 large can of peaches (3-1/2 cups), save the juice
One 8-ounce package of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, pudding mix, egg, and milk in a large bowl. Beat for two minutes on medium speed. Pour into a 10-inch well greased (use butter) pie pan. Place drained peaches on top, then set aside. Combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 Tablespoons peach juice. Beat for two minutes until smooth. Spoon on top of the peaches and keep away from the edge -- about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand for 15 min. and serve warm.

Vibe, unless this thread suddenly has 500 posts in a couple of days, we're not adding another forum. Sorry man, we've already got a load on!

MXBob60, dessert eh? Man...that's one I've never even considered. But damn...peach pie is some tasty stuff!

Not if Dan Gerous puts the egg in a toasted English muffin with cheese and ham! Another easy snack!

I know most of you are resourceful geeks. That is why you will enjoy Good Eats, a show that mixes 1 part science to 1 part edibles!

Ever since Melissa took over the kitchen, I haven't been cooking as much. So, I will make this a joint effort. If she will allow me, I will share her family's recipe for the best dam marinara sauce you have ever tasted in your life. "Aunt Rita's" recipe has been in her family since the early 1900,s and it is absolutely amazing.

Otherwise to do my part I will share my lame Sea bass Alfredo recipe. It started out as a seafood alfredo, but we modified it with some sea bass and it turned out really nice, and not as heavy as with the shell fish.

Anyway....wait with baited breath my friends...cause if she lets me put this sauce out here... I will bet my brand new long johns that you guys will love it.

In the mean while..just for fun, here are the ingredients for a genuine Chicago dog. Growing up there, I have realized that there is no other dog like a chi dog.

Chicago Dog:
Vienna Beef Hot Dogs (if it isn't vienna...it isn't a chicago dog)
Poppy seed hot dog buns
Celery salt
Mini Jalapeno peppers
Cucumber wedges
Tomato Slices
Regular mustard
dill pickle slice (optional..some have it some don't)

Boil the dogs... (always boil the dogs...save the grill for a barbeque)
prep the fixins.
Once the dogs are finished, place them in the buns, place the buns in a plastic bag, and let the dogs steam the buns
Mustard down the middle
Peppers\tomatoes on one side
cucumbers down the other
pickle down the middle
celery salt goes on last

Arrghh!!!!

Share YOUR cooking recipes, NOT your SO's. Dang, people can't read these days.

I can see it now, this thread's gonna turn into a list of recipies from Dipp's collection of boxtops and Hendo's wife's recipes. I knew it would come to this....

First shoot one Koala! Then net two medium size duck-billed platypus, shoot mother kangaroo and remove baby from the pouch.

2) Skin and gut koala fill stomach cavity with gum leaves and hot rocks (not from near river bank.) Make fire wrap koala in wet bark and throw into fire.

Platypuses thrown wet and whole into fire.

Baby roo skinned but not gutted and covered in wet clay and placed in hole under fire.

Ready to eat in two hours.

Not a joke but a meal eaten with some Aboriginals in 1973.

The Platypus and baby roo were delicious but the koala was awful.

If a white fella tried that now about $50,000 in fines and up to 10 years in jail the natives however can still do it.
