    Alright, So since many realjockers like to show off in forum topics, here is a big chance for everyone: Which dish/ dessert do you cook the best ?

    I would say, for me, that it's shrimp pasta with white wine sauce, I add a bit of garlic and lemon juice and it's very good icon_biggrin.gif

    What about you guys ?

    Chinese Instant Noodle!!! icon_biggrin.gif
    Joke aside, I think I good at making horse meat marinated in mushroom sauce on spaghetti. I know horse meat may sound weird, but it taste exactly like beef, but less fat and more nutritious.

    Cook? Why would I cook, myself? That's what women are for.

    If anyone can cook an amazing chicken alfredo from scratch....let me know.

    I can grill a mean steak and make a bomb ass omelette/scramble to go with it. Now all I need is another man to cook it for. icon_wink.gif

    I can bake pretty much anything, but one thing I'm really good at is souffle.
    During the fall, I make a Pumpkin Souffle that is out of this world and I pair it with a bourbon creme anglaise sauce and maple ice cream. That's the perfect fall dessert right there.

    Kimchi fried rice is my specialty (with bacon, sometimes spam, and always butter). I also have a signature channa masala, and a pumpkin pie frozen yogurt.

    ETA:

    You and me both. I like to think I'd be a good stay at home partner, have the cocktail ready when he comes in the door with dinner on the table..

    My go- to "make for conservative/traditional people" dish: Eggplant parmesan

    My "let's take off the monocle and have fun" meal typically for a first date at my place: Spaghetti tacos

    My Paula Deen inspired twist on a classic: Bacon lasagna

    My own creation called "The Perpetually Chubby Single Girl" from the bottom up: bun, gruyere, bacon, gruyere, mac and cheese, turkey burger patty, guacamole, tortilla strips, bacon, bun ... with a Diet Dr. Pepper.

    I can't make a dessert to save my life ... where Holey Cream and Sprinkles Cupcakes come in to save the day.

    Italy called and asked politely that I never tell anyone of my Italian heritage. Oops, I did it again! icon_biggrin.gif

    I have to thank Delia Smith for this one, the original domestic goddess, bless her cotton apron strings.

    But, I can make fresh coconut cream layer cake which is four layers of coconut sponge cake filled with mascapone, fromage frais and coconut, and then topped with as much fresh grated coconut as will stick to the cream.

    Is scrumptious, is divine ^^

    Living in Key West we have a lot of Latin influence. Something simply that I love is Picadillo - a traditional Cuban dish served with yellow saffron rice and black beans.
    Easy to make here is the recipe.
    1/4 cup olive oil
    2 onions- diced and 3 cloves of garlic minced
    1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
    3 bay leaves
    1 Tsp oregano
    salt & pepper to taste
    1/2 cup raisins
    1 small jar of capers
    1 - 8 oz jar of olives with pimientos - cut in half
    16 oz tomato sauce
    1 - 14 oz chopped tomato
    Saute onions & garlic in olive oil. Add ground beef and brown. Add spices, salt, pepper and raisins. Add capers and olives with the juice from their jar.. Add tomato sauce. Add chopped tomato. Simmer for 30 minutes. Serve of yellow rice made according to package.
    Black beans can be heated and served out of the can, but are better if you add 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 tsp of oregano, 1 Tbsp of vinger and 1 Tbsp of olive oil..

    It is better reheated and served the second day. The flavors melt together overnight.

    cake flour is a type of flour. depending on your desired product, you can choose from a variety... cake, bread, pastry, all purpose.... essentially, it all comes down to the protein content. cake flour has a low protein content, which is used because it produces less gluten, which is desirable for bread, but not so much for the crumb of a cake.
