Who invited the home cook police? Get over yourself. I'd much rather have a thoughtful partner cooking for me than a critical one.
Been a challenging couple of months in life but I'm back. I did a dinner for friends last night but all I took a picture of was the first course.
Girlfriend loves breakfast so it's caramelized onion cream out of a isi whipper, quail eggs, dried iberico and some honey oats.
Figured those were breakfast flavors.
Good to be back!
Looks nice. Chives ought to be sliced a bit finer. Welcome back!
Oh I think he was joking guys

Ann_T- yeah I know he is tecnically correct, at least for some parts of the world but names of food tend to be geographical. I am from canada as well, and if you order shepherd's pie in a restaurant or go to a friends house for dinner and they have made it, it would almost always be made with ground beef. I don't tell English people they can't call oat bars flapjacks because that is what I call pancakes.

Chicken thighs 3 ways. Harissa, preserved kumquat and lemon verbena + Mulberry smoked thighs with dry rub + plain with salt & pepper. Cooked a tri tip roast with the grilled chicken.
Harissa & tri tip plated
And a first part of the week experiment with dried pomegranate seeds, preserved kumquat, lemon verbena.
Charly approved of the flavor profile but did not comment about the presentation.

Last night I made some ramen. I generally followed the Momofuku recipe for the broth, but used the pressure cooker instead. For toppings I added some stir-fried corn, bamboo shoots, soft boiled egg, and brined sous vide chicken breast (144 F).

I didn't get to a steakhouse last weekend when I was in Las Vegas, so I've been craving steak ever since I got back home. No better place to cook a great steak than in your own kitchen-

Emily_R – I am so glad you liked the slipper burgers. We haven’t made them for way too long.
Morkai – mmmmm, crab cakes
Dcarch – beautiful wings, and I like your okra-holders
ScottyBoy – welcome back!
Dinner from Marilyn Tausend’s Cocina de la Familia
Cilantro soup – Chayote and two bunches of cilantro roughly pureed with rich chicken broth, simmered with sautéed onion, garlic, and tomato, thickened with cornstarch, and served with fried tortilla strips, queso fresco, and Mexican crema. Very popular, even though the boys claim to dislike cilantro.
Tequila shrimp and pasta – Shrimp sautéed in olive oil, flamed with tequila, and removed. Simmer heavy cream with a paste of ancho chile, garlic, Mexican oregano, and rice vinegar, return the shrimp to the pan, and then toss everything with the pasta. Good stuff!
