    *I searched for recipe threads, but I only found one and it was from 2005, SO...*

    I thought it would be nice to have a recipe thread for members to share their favorite recipes/cooking techniques.


    On that note, onward to tasty recipes! ::gaku::

    The only think I'm really capable of cooking is stuff from the Padma Lakshmi cook book, even then It's hard to consider it food. :|

    Let's just say that I've burnt instant noodles, wtf. I could give you that recipe, though!

    All you need is a packet of Instant Noodles and a copy of The Cosby Show Season 2. :)


    XD Really though, when I cook I just mix things together and hope I don't die. Premade FTW

    I know how to make little rice cupcakes... and some other filipino pastry dishes.

    However, I absolutely love Pumpkin Pie, and Cheesecake.

    My favorite and seriously delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe (*this will make soft/chewy cookies)

    2 sticks unsalted butter
    2 1/4 cups bread flour
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 1/4 cups brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    Hardware:
    Ice cream scooper (#20 disher, to be exact)
    Parchment paper
    Baking sheets
    Mixer

    Heat oven to 375 degrees F. (or 190.5 C )

    Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat.

    Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside.

    Pour the melted butter in the mixer's work bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed.

    Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.

    Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

    Chill the dough, then scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet.

    Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 5 minutes.

    Rotate the baking sheet for even browning.

    Cool completely and store in an airtight container.



    *This is Alton Brown's (Good Eats) recipe and it's AWESOME*

    I can cook if I follow a recipe, but if I'm trying to make something from scratch...havoc.

    I usually mix whatever is around. I watch FoodTV often and because of that, I think I "good food sense" I havent' died yet...so something must be right. Oh! I've just seen you mentioned Alton and he's so awesome!

    ^ Priss: Alton Brown OWNS!

    As for watching Food Network, it's one of the only channels I watch and it's forced me to be creative when I'm cooking.

    And if you're good at following recipes, I think you should check out the Cooking with Disney Chef's cookbooks. I bought both of them when I was in Disney World last winter and they feature a lot of the dishes served throughout Disney. I've made a couple of the meals featured in the books and they're basically AMAZING!

    ^Nekoi: Toast is great! ::gaku:: <---- Gackt agrees!


    ^SchizoCherri: They are seriously the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever eaten. Alton Brown's recipes are fantastic and he loves science (like me) ::k::

    Cally has a ton of awesome recipies. She needs to post here....


    As for me, I don't cook. I guess the only slightly unique thing I do is that I put a pinch of garlic salt in my egg mix when I'm making scrambled eggs. I make the best scrambled eggs.

    And I also make toast. :|

    I don't know any recipes...the most cooking I've done was to stir something in a pot ::meev:: *hides from stares* (or just put something in the microwave)


    I guess I can help around when others are cooking but I've never actually cooked myself. ^^;

    I cook any type of chicken except fried. I also make salads, various types of breakfasts, mashed potatoes :) , make cereal, and sandwiches.

    As of following or having an uber super secret recipe, no. I randomly do it with the ingredients that are provided in my house, and they oddly turn out great. Rice is the only damn thing that I can't cook right, ends up tasting like something abominable and wrong in all ways.

    Does anyone have a good oatmeal recipe? :)
