Oh Enel that looks so tasty x.x While I have started experimenting and looking for all kinds of recipes to try, I still only cook. I'm kinda worried that if I start baking, I will be spherical within a month. But still, that looks ridiculously tasty...

The trick is to bake stuff for your friends for their birthdays or whatever! That way, THEY will become spherical and you can still get your baking done! Diabolical!

Sharing is caring? You could always bake and then give away like half the cake cause you're nice and stuff~ that way you can worry less :P Fairly easy trick with for cakes that are round - cut out a crescent moon (either keep the big part or give it away and keep the moon part) and then just apply frosting where you cut and voila, they'll never know! xD;

The other night I shared some dinner responsibilities with Tsao (friend of the site), and rediscovered an amazing dish of his - Hawaiian chicken.

Here's his recipe for it, which I post here, knowing it's the best place for me to put it if I want to learn it myself.

12-15 Chicken Thighs (boneless, skinless), 1 packet Onion Soup Mix, 1 cup Apricot Jam, 1 cup Pineapple Jam, 1 cup French Dressing, Splash of Soy Sauce, Slash of Salt, optional: white raisins or pineapple slices
(Mix all that stuff together, dump it in a glass 13x9 inch pan)
Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 40-50 minutes, check the thicker pieces to make sure it's cooked through.

Serve with rice.


I also made asparagus in hollandaise to go with this. That was just about steaming/frying the asparagus and bringing a hollandaise sauce to a nice simmer, and then adding them together. It probably didn't go super well with the flavors of the chicken, but the zucchini I wanted to make didn't look very good in the store. I'd suggest going with a lightly flavored dish like sauteed zucchini and carrots with ginger, if those ingredients are available.

Is there a particular reason it needs to be a glass pan? :O

I'm making saffron risotto with minute steak tonight, and it's my first time trying risotto so I'm a bit nervous. If all goes well though I'll share the recipe after!

Generally the heat distribution in glass and metal is different enough to make the distinction. You could use metal, but you'd want to bake at 375 F. You would probably also have more browning on the meat, which could be good.


Risotto is hard! Good luck!

Do you like sweets and beer (I'm making this sound like a commerical '~') but dislike carbs and all that shit?
Dark chocolate guinness bundt cake!
Quote:
-> It’s sinfully delicious. Like, it’s almost unholy how good this cake is.
-> Um, it has Guinness. Beer cake, as you may know, > regular cake.
-> It has less than 170 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving.

I haven't tried it myself yet, but it has been bookmarked, meaning I'd like to try it someday!

Guinness cake... The inventor of this can't be much short of a god O.O

Lol :L There's plenty of Guinness chocolate and Guinness icecream to be found here at least, so for me it doesn't feel very new. In fact I think I've had a different type of Guinness cake before. But it's all very tasty :3

While I can't say that it's usual /here/ I've seen quite a few beer related sweets recipes in them blogs such as the sweet and salty guinness choco pie but also cupcakes, brownies etc. I haven't made any of em thou, but all sounds more or less interesting ^^ So yeah, apparently, baking with beer ain't as unusual as it might sound

Well - I'd say Guinness is an exception. Most beers would ruin any form of sweets, but Guinness has an extremely distinct taste (almost like coffee) which works surprisingly good with chocolate. So just, you know, don't try to replace it with anything else xD

To a person that doesn't like beer, guinness is just yet another beer brand :P But yeah, I believe you xD;

Yeah I know, that's why I say it! Because you might think that and replace it with another beer, which would ruin any cake xD

Added another site to the list in first post, due to recipes like Chocolate cheesecake cake(sweets) and chicken stroganoff(food)

Nobody likes beer in the beginning. I have never seen anyone pick up a beer for the first time, taste it and go "Man! This is delicious!" That doesn't happen. You have to drink a lot of it ("a lot" varies from person to person), and a lot of different kinds, to acquire a taste for it. I used to be some weird, anti-beer drinker, did the whole "looks like pee, tastes like salty fermented water," etc. But then I did the thing, with the tasting and the trying, and can now differentiate as well as enjoy certain beers. Guinness is one of them. I realize that this response is rather late; perhaps, since then, Najica has become a refined alcoholic and loves beer. Or not.

Who likes whoopie pies? I have an easy, bastardized recipe for some.

I don't mind tasting stuff, but as someone in a swedish channel said on IRC, "Why would I drink something I disliked the first time more than once?" which holds some truth in it depending on how you see it.

Oh, and do give the whoopie pie recipe :D
I've always wanted to tried making em, but there seems to be so many variations of them, but maybe that's mostly for the filling...?

Share it cause sharing is caring \o/ I'm thinking of sharing a tl'ed (by myself) recipe of Swedish "kladdkaka" (mudcake).

I came to love beer because of Shawshank Redemption.
Quote:
We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation. As for Andy - he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer.

When I studied in Japan the second time, about 4 years ago, I lived at a restaurant that served beer. I'd come home from a long, hot day of school, tired and thirsty. The nicest experience imaginable in that state is that feeling of relaxation coupled with brisk masculinity that I get from drinking that beer after a particularly long day.

After a few beers like that, I started to refine my tastes. When I turned 21, I ordered a Guinness with my dad thinking "beer of beers!" still knowing I had never really liked beer before... I took one sip and was like NOPE. Now, it's my comfort drink. Any red or brown ale, really, does the job.
