    Art deco must be a good cook but he will talk constantly about himself while south beach might be a surprise hit kitchen wise,but he might secretly wear you down with his right wing ideas.
    So who would you rather have prepare a casserole???

    I think Art Deco would misread the ingredients and give a new take on the surprise casserole.

    Southbeach would add cyanide.

    ummm... I don't cook. My HUSBAND cooks. We took food to a private dinner on Friday (that we didn't know was actually in our honor, for our HIV/AIDS work - SURPRISE!). And will again tonight, to an HIV/AIDS fundraiser. We bought special platters & trays especially for this occasion, just to present his creations properly.

    But it's all his cooking, which he's working on right now as I type, not mine. I just buy the ingredients and the tools, he makes the magic.

    My husband's casseroles are in great demand. He made one as a gift Thursday for a local business owner, who's wife adores his cooking.

    But me, never. I wouldn't know how to begin making a casserole. I could GIVE you a casserole made by my husband, that I'd bet would stand against anything anyone here could make. But me, no, I'll concede that point.

    LOL! You're not far from wrong. I can follow a recipe, but that isn't cooking. Real cooking also requires the chef's flair & experience. And his/her personal "touch" which I lack.

    The best cooking is an art form, not following an instruction manual by rote. For which you need to have a genuine passion, and talent for cooking food. Both of which I lack.

    But at least I'm smart enough to realize that about myself. Some people I know who are in the same boat as me do not. What torture it is to eat THEIR meals! icon_razz.gif

    My solution is to marry guys who can REALLY cook. Who LOVE to cook. And then to provide them with everything they need to satisfy their passion. It's a win-win situation, for them and for me. And for our friends. Like, I'm sure, again tonight. icon_wink.gif

    South bitch, like most modern Republicans, does not create, he only consumes & destroys.

    Take and don't give is the formula of US Republicans. And to mock those who provide charity to the needy. We see it in countless threads here.

    And when Republicans do donate, it's to conservative Right Wing causes. So they can falsely boast "I give to charity".

    ummm,,, No, you don't. You give to bigotry. To advance an agenda that includes anti-gay goals.

    What this ridiculous thread proves is that south beach is probably the better cook. I'm surprised that art is a dud in the kitchen oh well.

    They both live in places that are too hot for cooking a casserole to be worthwhile. If I had to bet who had the best casserole of any RJ member, my bet would be lsugemini (I think that was his name), those French casseroles are usually amazing.

    I've already met Art Deco a few times and can attest that he's really a great guy to be around. He doesn't talk about himself in person nearly as much as we read here.

    I've yet to meet southbeach, and doubt it'll ever happen.

    That said, I'd prefer to have Art make the casserole. Even if it ends up sucking, at least the company will be enjoyable. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think you and Art Deco should get wasted together and teepee Southbeach's house.

    I'm not sure either one would work. I think Southbeach might be a little tough for a casserole. OTOH, An Artdeco casserole might have too much oil floating on top.

    Actually Paul & I have done some drinking together a few times in the past, when having a restaurant dinner or brunch or something. But neither of us got wasted.

    I'd like to put them both together in a room and be a taste tester.

    It would be intriguing, no doubt.

    southbeach1500 saidEvery time I've tried to make a casserole, it's come out too soupy!

    But I do make an excellent, hearty pasta sauce, filled with several different types of tomatoes, red and green peppers, sweet onions, mushrooms, garlic, ground beef, ground pork and ground sweet sausage. icon_wink.gif

    That used to happen to me
    Turns out most recipes include far too many liquid elements
    I've found it best to cut down on the looser ingredients and increase the firmer ones
    Plus, remember that most vegetables are about 75% water, and they release their water during cooking
    So the more vegetables in the casserole, the less liquid you should use (like stock or canned soup or any other emollient)

    The secret to a good sauce, soup or stew is in the reduction. Most people try to use too high of a cooking temperature and and try to get it done faster.

    WRONG!

    Lower temp but much more time to reduce. The flavors become far more complex and the texture takes on a life of its own...
