    Dinner! 2008

    Everything looks incredible Mota: I love djon-djon! Do you have a recipe by any chance?
  3. Ann T: Those biscuits and gravy look amazing!! I'm drooling over here... I usually don't make very hearty breakfasts, even on the weekends, but my Aunt was visiting from out of town so I wanted to make an effort for her,lol. Scrambled eggs, sausage and peppers, baked beans & patacones (fried green plantain)
  4. Cupcakes again for me... These let me use up excess easter egg candy ) Robin's nest cupcakes: Vanilla buttercake, fudge frosting, toasted coconut Plafield: That cake is so sweet...and your lettering is perfect! Do you have any tips? I can never write on cakes so neatly. The strawberry hearts are adorable too. Tri2Cook - those sugared leaves are so beautiful!! How do you do that?(if you don't mind me asking)
  5. Hmm, I don't have a rice cooker, but I get pretty good sticky rice this way: (I use short grain, but it should work with other sizes) One cup of dry rice: -Rinse the rice in cold water until it runs clear -Set it aside to drain in a strainer for about 30 minutes - 1 hour -Combine the rice with 8 oz of water in pot, cover and bring to a boil over high heat...takes about 5 minutes. As soon as it reaches a boil, turn the heat to low and let the rice cook for about 15 minutes. Take the pot off the heat and let it steam for another 15 minutes. It takes a little bit of time, but I get sticky rice every time...it should be easier once your rice cooker comes though! I think it'll do all these steps automatically...?
  6. I know I'm late, but...just wow... these look delicious... good work!

    This thread is amazing! So many wonderful ideas. I love it! C. Sapidius - Sure, here is the recipe. I hope you like it! monavano - your stew looks great! I've always wanted to try groundnut stew, especially with beef. I think I'd better got to it, lol...

    Ann_T, Kim -Thanks so much! Whoa, what interesting combinations!...sounds (and looks) awesome! What was the inspiration for this? I've had horrible luck with making cornish hens...but I may have to take another crack at them to try this out...those flavors are right up my alley...

    Dinner! 2008

    I was in the mood for soup for some reason... I made a ginger red lentil soup with spinach.
  10. Tri2Cook - Wow, that olive cobbler sounds so interesting! Looks great too! I made Guinness cupcakes w/ brown sugar cream frosting. At first, I was thinking of making a Bailey's Irish Cream frosting, then changed my mind at the last minute, lol...

    Dinner! 2008

    I was feeling under the weather...didn't go shopping...so tonight's meal was more of a pantry / clean-out-the fridge type deal: I had a huge bunch of collard greens that I hadn't used yet and I didn't want them to go bad. Ginger salmon cakes & soy glazed collards I just cut the greens into thin strips and cooked them down with fresh ginger, oyster sauce, soy, red pepper flakes, lime juice, brown sugar and a little water...

    Shelby, Chris - Thank you! The pre-packaged were good, although they have a slight tang to them Still good though. I'm too chicken to make gnocchi myself, but it's on my list of things to try sometime this year, lol. these looks so amazing....
  13. Thanks to whoever bumped this! This is why I love eG ...for some reason, it's been on my mind recently to try making these, and here pops up a thread. These all look delicious guys!
  14. Oh gosh, you've just reminded me...I've seen this too Hmm, I haven't seen this one. But, if TV series count, then I'll add the Korean drama: My Name is Kim Sam Soon. The main character was a pastry chef, so there where a lot of good shots of yummy desserts
  15. How funny, I just posted about Le Grand Chef on my blog last month. Nice movie Eat Drink Man Woman is my favorite food movie, or actually, it's my favorite film period. The opening scene is just amazing to me. I also like Scent of Green Papaya...I can't think of any more though...

    Dinner! 2008

    I found some tri-color gnocchi at target the other day, so that's what I made tonight. ...just cooked it with some crumbled turkey sausage, garlic, onions, red pepper flakes, and spinach.
  17. Thanks HungryC! I probably won't bother with odd number idea then...
  18. Hi everyone, I did a search but couldn't really come up with an answer for this. I'd really like to try making Gumbo des Herbes / Gumbo Zaab (?) next week, but I have a question regarding the greens. So far, I've read that you're supposed to use an odd number of greens for good luck... Does anyone know if scallions count as greens in this case? I know, it's a weird question, just curious if anyone could help me out. Thanks!
  19. What great pictures Viva! I'm interested in African cuisine, especially western and central. Still learning right now, though... So far these are the ingredients I keep running into, I'm sure there's more: plantain cassava/yucca dried shrimp breadfruit bell peppers garlic dried / smoked fish cornmeal red palm oil / butter cowpeas / black-eyed peas pigeon peas greens like spinach, amaranth, etc... tomatoes onions thyme rice curry powder cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon hot chilies & powder peanuts / groundnuts pumpkin / gourd seeds peppercorns benne / sesame seeds fresh shrimp, crayfish periwinkles goatmeat bushmeat chicken

    Oh this looks yum! Your plantains look sooo sweet
  21. Thanks gfron1!! Yeah, I haven't been around EG for a while, lol. I'll try to post on RecipeGullet tonight when I get home. Thanks so much Amrita & John! Honestly, I'm not sure what makes it so smooth, I think it could be the combo of all the egg yolks, and also buttering & sugaring the ramekins...
  22. This morning I made a quick egg white burrito
  23. Yesterday, I made Quindim. It's a custard made of egg yolks, sugar, grated coconut, coconut milk and a touch of lime.
  24. Wow. I just started reading this blog on tuesday. Sadly it seems the author commited suicide a few days ago...

    Lemonade

    If you like basil/lemonade, you should also try lemonade with rosemary! It's great!
