MIKE'S HOMEMADE BURGERS

FIRST, YOU'RE GONNA NEED GROUND BEEF.
SECOND, YOU NEED SPICES AND ****.
THIRD YOU NEED AN EGG AND SOY SAUCE.

PUT THE SPICES AND **** ON THE GROUND BEEF. MIX IT TOGETHER. WITH YOUR HANDS.

MAKE A BOWL/VOLCANO WITH THE MEAT. CRACK AN EGG IN IT. MIX THAT **** TOGETHER. WITH YOUR HANDS. ENJOY THE SQUICK.

MAKE YOUR MEATEGG INTO FIST SIZE BALLS. PUT THEM ON A PAN AND FRY THEM A BIT. PUT A BIT OF SOY SAUCE ON THOSE BABIES AS THEY FRY. CAREFUL THAT **** JUMPS.

AFTER THEY'VE SOLIDIFIED A BIT, YOU CAN MOVE THEM OVER TO THE GRILL OR CONTINUE COOKING ON THE PAN IF IT'S TOO COLD TO COOK OUTSIDE BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN SIBERIA AND IT'S ****ING COLD.

PUT ON BUNS WITH CONDIMENTS.

****ING EAT.

French Toast. Mmm. I put cinnamon and vanilla in the egg-milk mix to make it cook the flavor into it. It tastes good. Cook it to brown, and eat with butter. Syrup if you want, especially good with real maple syrup.

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

If you have a dinner party coming up, then might I suggest you whip up this LEGENDARY dessert called 'sea salt ice cream'.
Now, I know what you're thinking 'SEA SALT! WHAT? THATS NOT A DESSERT, HOW DARE YOU TAINT US WITH SAVORY ICE CREAM!' but hey man, just hear me out.
That is the exact reaction your dinner guests will have when you well them whats on the menu, but once they take their first lick of this salty-sweet treat, they will be so pleasantly surprised.

So, for this glorious recipe you will be needing:

2 eggs

2 cups of milk

1 cup of cream

1/2 a cup of sugar

sea salt

vanilla flavoring

Blue food dye

Now, heres what you do. Heat the milk in a pan on medium heat, whilst it is heating separate th 2 egg yolks from the egg whites. Beat the two egg yolks together, then add the half cup of sugar. Start beating some more until you get a thick, pasty mixture. Add this to the heated milk, but you must NOT let it boil, so keep an eye on it. Whilst its cooking, make sure you stir it now and then, but in the meantime, it's time to put those egg whites to good use! Beat them until they are stiff. By the time you have done this, the milk and yolk mixture should be warm enough. Take it off the heat and pour it into the egg white mixture. Stir it all together.
Now it's time to add the sea salt. Taste the mixture first to see if it's sweet enough, if not add a bit more sugar. Now, you want to make it fairly salty, because the vanilla flavoring that goes in later will balance it out. Once thats done, stick it in the fridge until it's cold.
Once it's chilled, take it out the fridge and add the cup of cream and one teaspoon of vanilla flavoring, then mix it up. Now splash some blue food dye in there until it is a light/sky blue.
Now time to pop it in the freezer and you are all done!


EAT IT WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND ON A CLOCK TOWER WHY NOT! Jeez, not like Kingdom Hearts invented it...

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

Tonight I made spaghetti with red sauce. I tossed some leftover turkey into the sauce for fun. Also had some leftover swiss chard and cut veggies. Just a quick meal thrown together after work.

I was going to take a picture, but forgot.

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

I can make one thing really good (at least to me)

Cream of chicken chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn

First the chicken
-pack of thighs
-can of cream of chicken
-seasons of choice

I take a baking glass pan and put the chicken in it and season accordingly. Next I let it bake for about 35 minutes on 400. While that is baking, I take the cream of chicken and warm it up on the stove as if making soup. After it's warm, during the last couple minutes of baking the chicken, I pour the CoC on top and let it bake until chicken is fully cooked. (Takes about 50 minutes to 1 hour).

Next mashed potatoes
-potatoes
-garlic powder
-ranch or Miracle whip (depends on your taste)
-bit of salt
-bit of pepper
-milk

After peeling the taters and setting up your pan, you will put a pinch of salt in the pot of taters. Let them boil until soft. After they are soft, smash them with weapon of choice. Then pour milk in it. (I don't know how much I always make mines a bit soupier than normal) next mix all together and then add garlic powder. This will add a twinge to it. Finally add the ranch or miracle whip and mix together while adding a bit of pepper for color. EAT.

Corn
-microwave
-pepper
-butter

To make corn, take a bowl add water put corn in it place in microwave for how ever long the bag says. ( i can't remember at the moment). When it's warm enough, get some butter mix it together then add pepper for taste.

Voila you made a Super Sonic Special ^_^

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

My word, what is this dark and vaguely sinister-looking pie you see before you? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s the world’s first Schadenfreude Pie, the pie to enjoy while you are reveling in the horrible misfortunes of others. Why is there a Schadenfreude Pie? Because after I wrote the headline for this entry, I wondered to myself, “what would Schadenfreude Pie taste like?”

My guess: Dark. Rich. And oh so bittersweet.

And you know what? That’s exactly what it tastes like. Also — and this is really just a perfect but unintentional extension of the whole schadenfreude metaphor — you really only want a small slice; too much of this pie and it’ll sit in the pit of your stomach like a rock of judgment, pulling you down. Small slice? Excellent. Big slice? You’ll regret it. Just like schadenfreude itself.

Want a slice? Sure you do. Here’s how you make it.



Let’s face it, schadenfreude is a dark emotion. It deserves a dark pie. Here are your ingredients.

1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
3 large eggs (I used brown eggs in keeping with the spirit of things, but white eggs are fine)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 splash Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
1 graham cracker pie crust (9 or 10 inches). Choose regular or chocolate graham cracker crust according to taste.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (Fahrenheit). Melt butter in largish mixing bowl; add in corn syrup, molasses, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix well. Melt chocolate; fold into existing mixture. Add eggs and Kahlua; mix vigorously until mix has an even consistency. Pour into pie crust (depending on size of crust you may have a little filling mix left over).

Shove into oven, center of middle rack, and bake for about 45 minutes. At 45 minutes, poke pie with butter knife. If butter knife comes out clean, your pie is done; otherwise give it about another five minutes.

Once you take the pie out of the oven, let it set at least 20 minutes before you dig in. It’s really good when still warm, however.

Serving recommendations: small slices (this is an awesomely rich pie) and an ice cold glass of milk to go with it.

Got it? Groovy. And now, pictures of the production of the very first Schadenfreude Pie ever:



Athena mixes the pie filling ingredients while plotting the downfall of all those who oppose her.



Appearing as if the baleful eye of retribution, the pie awaits its cookination!



The darkest of all dark pies, fully cooked.



“From Hell’s heart I stab at thee, Schadenfredue Pie!”



The unspeakable malevolence of the pie, in single-serving size.



Sure, it’s a pie freighted down by the petty weaknesses of men, but how does it taste?







Excellent! And now, let us have a maniacal laugh of victory, if you please:



Joy at the misfortune of others — and pie! Truly, the best of all possible worlds.

I made Nutella-stuffed French toast!

It's just like regular French toast, but you make it using a Nutella sandwich.

Tonight for dinner I made chicken fajitas. Sliced chicken breast cooked with onion and red peppers, seasoned with chili powder, cumin and cayenne and a little bit of ketchup. Served with diced tomatoes, seven-layer dip, red kidney beans, jalapeños, shredded cheddar, and whole wheat wraps.

I forgot to take a picture again.

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

Easy and delicious grilled cheese with mushrooms!

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan. Add sliced mushrooms (before the oil heats up too much). While that's starting, you can make some simple condensed tomato soup with milk on the side- one can soup, one can milk, simmer, done.

Also, while the mushrooms are heating up, go ahead and prepare your sandwich- butter both sides of the bread, slice the cheese (for the love of God, don't use "American"). Adding some rosemary and grated hard cheese (like Romano, Asiago, Parmesan, etc) to the buttered outside is a nice touch, too!

So, you've got your buttered slices of bread, yeah? The buttered side is the outside slice. Leave those face down so you can put the cheese on one of the slices.

Sautee your mushrooms till they're soft and plump, and then add the hot mushrooms to the cheesy side of the bread. Make a sandwich, and plop on the pan.

Flip er whatever until it's all golden on the outside.

Pour your soup into a bowl, cut the sandwich in half, and voila: delicious mushroom grilled cheese. AND DIP IT IN THE SOUP IT'S GOOD.

And really easy.

Re: ZU's Cooking Thread

Awesome Radek-style spaghetti with meatballs:

1. Cut up some boneless stew meat into tiny balls or squares.
2. Marinate it with A1 New York marinade, ketchup, Montreal steak seasoning (optional for that extra kick of flavor), canola oil and salt & pepper.
3. Let the marinade do its thing for an hour.
4. Sauté meat in flat frying pan until meat is cooked but the outside is only very slightly burnt.
5. Boil some pasta.
6. Combine both when done.
7. Eat, *****.

Hummus's Mac n' Cheese!

No, I don't mean Mac n' Cheese with hummus. That would be gross (or would it? ). Just Mac n' Cheese. This is a tweaked version of a great recipe I saw online, but I can't remember where I found it.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups of COLD milk
1 tablespoon of salt (kosher < iodized)
pinch of white pepper (or black if that's all you have)
pinch of cayenne pepper
sprinkle of nutmeg
pinch of yellow mustard powder (optional)
4 to 5 cups of your choice of appropriate cheeses (I like white cheddar with a bit of gouda)
1 lb (usually one box) of short cut pasta (elbows or shells are preferable)

Oh, and you may want a whisk.

1) Melt butter on medium heat in a pot. Add in nutmeg, cayenne, pepper, and mustard powder, and stir. Bring this to a simmer. Add in flour and cook this while stirring with a whisk for about 5 minutes. Congrats! You have made a roux!

2) To the hot roux add 1 cup of the milk (hot roux + cold milk = no lumps!), and whisk this together until it's homogeneous. Add the rest of the milk and the salt and bring to a slight boil while whisking.

3) Once it's hot remove the pot from the stove and add in the cheese a handful at a time until it's mixed well with the sauce.

Meanwhile...

4) Make the pasta, but UNDERCOOK IT (about 2-3 minutes less than normal).

5) Combine the sauce and the pasta in an appropriately sized casserole (you can add extra cheese on top if you like) and put that baby in the oven for 20 minutes @ 375 degrees

6) OMG MAC AND CHEESE OMNOMNOMNOM
