... but when the desire is there, I am capable of cooking actual food. Why, just tonight, I made myself a tasty chicken & salsa meal. Could have used some more salsa, but regardless, it was yum-tastic!

What kind of things do you like to cook? I don't know about you, but I would love to cook fish. Anybody got any recipes they'd like to share on that?

My favorite place to get recipes is www.allrecipes.com.

That website brought me from 0 to 1000 on the cooking scale. Every time I go to a potluck or cook for friends and family my dishes are all the rage. My particular favorites right now are:


Cheesecake (Everyone who has it says it is the best they have ever had)
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chantals-New-...ake/Detail.aspx

Pineapple Bacon Burgers
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pineapple-Bac...ers/Detail.aspx

Worlds best mashed taters one person has told me they were not his favorite... he said they were his second favorite)
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Garlic-Mashed...ipe/Detail.aspx

On this site you can save recipes in your own little recipe book, you can organize it however you'd like and you can even print a shopping list based on what you want to cook. When you search for something look for the highest rating with the highest number of reviews. Read a few reviews because sometimes people will give it a 5 and say things like... cut the salt in half, or add a bit of this.

Anyway, this website is the best cooking resource I have ever found!

Your welcome.

I love to make chili. I make it usually once a week and it's a great meal :)

I've found the recipes from epicurious.com to be reliable, and they have really wide range of dishes.

The only other recipe page I have bookmarked is the recipe page at AllEars (Mainly for the Zebra Dome Recipe!): http://allears.net/din/rec.htm

Hmmm. I cook a bunch of stuff... chili, black beans & rice w/ chicken, chicken cordon bleu, corned beef w/ cabbage/potatoes/carrots, creme brulee, tiramisu, pumpkin cheesecake, red hot ribs, Portugese shrimp & yellow rice, Boma's ginger carrot soup, pot roast, chili rellenos casserole, gumbo, pork BBQ, meatloaf, etc., etc......,

And I just cooked collard greens for the first time Thanksgiving (hubby & family are from the South - Mississippi & FL) - not too much pressure for a first try!! :roll:

COH... I usually just rub the fish with a bit of spices and quickly saute or bake in the oven (unless I'm making paella).

My primary recipe site is myrecipes.com, however I find allrecipes.com, epicurious.com, and recipezaar.com also useful. The Food Network site also has good recipes occasionally (Alton Brown: Yes; Rachael Ray: Meh.)

I have actually been impressed with the power of the broiler in the last few years. I think fish with some fat content, like salmon, does very well with very little effort in the broiler.

about.com also has great recipes! They have especially good southern recipes and I use that website often, too. And yeah, Alton Brown ROCKS!!! Not crazy about Rachael Ray or Paula Dean. They're both too perky and Giada's head is too big for her body. I'm so distracted by her head/body ratio that I can't focus on what she's cooking!

COH - What type of fish do you want to cook? Delicate textured fish like cod needs to be cooked differently than fish with a more hearty texture like tuna.

When I cook, I need simple recipes. I'm far too lazy to take an hour to prepare and cook everything. Ideally, it is all prepared in one dish/bowl and then cooked somehow. The less mess, the better.

I was thinking something like my mother used to make when I was living with her, like tilapia or salmon.

To a greater extent (and ashamed to admit), I'm more like Matt when it comes to making meals. Quick & Easy.

I like to cook pork chops on the grill. I am the kind of person that never uses the same exact spices twice. I always try to find a way to top the flavor or add a new twist to it.

Sorry for this random old thread bumping, but I didn't really want to start a new one...So today I grilled some chicken using a marinade recipe I got from Jiko on Allears.net:

http://allears.net/d...pes/rec_cbm.htm

The recipe's for shrimp, but I used chicken because I don't have too much faith in seafood right now after the oil spill... Anyway, I hadn't seen a dairy-based marinade before, so I figured I might as well give it a shot. The recipe was fantastic and the chicken turned out great!

Recently created a yummy meal from misc stuff in my pantry.... named it Chicken Babylonia in honor of the Adventurers Club. Chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces in a saucepan w/ canned diced tomatoes, canned sliced mushrooms & canned marinated artichoke hearts (drained). Add whatever spices you like (onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper...) & let simmer on low until chicken is done. Serve over wide egg noodles w/ a salad.

I love to cook, but I hate to clean. If I could cook without having to clean up after myself, I'd be cooking every day!
