What're ya cookin'?

I’ve never been a great cook but the past few months I’ve been digging in and trying some new things and getting better at it. I know some of you are phenomenal cooks and so I wanted to start a thread where you could do what you do on Facebook - specifically posting what you are (and preferably made today).

Tonight peasant bread, to make the place smell like heaven before I take off for the Rose Bowl.

Like for NSFW pics.

Great idea!

Day old pizza and warm, flat beer.

The breakfast of champions!!! :joy::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::joy::joy::joy::joy:

Got a brisket with a dry rub going on the smoker tomorrow morning.

Homemade tamales and MAYBE some Chili Colorado.

Which part? The tamales or the Chili Colorado?

I already made the tamales just prior to Christmas Eve. I froze a bunch so that we could have them. They are good. Here they are in the steamer.

This batch ended up being roughly 2 dozen. They’re pork, with some of my red enchilada sauce mixed in with both the meat and the masa. I got my chlies from Hatch, NM. Those are HOT, even by my standards. The mixture of my sauce, the masa, and the pork isn’t terribly hot, but it is flavorful. I can kick up the heat with more of my enchilada sauce over the top of the tamales. I’m very pleased with this batch. Strangely enough, I couldn’t make them with lard this time. No one had any lard in stock in my area. So I had to use vegetable shortening, not my normal go to lipid for tamales. It worked though, so I can’t complain too much. The lard would have added another layer of flavor, and fewer hydrogenated fats.

Made some scratch pizza tonight. Parents are in town and they like ham and pineapple. I don’t want to hear about it :wink:.

Should this thread be called “Hey Good Lookin, Whatcha Got Cookin?”

Ham and pineapple is good IMO. It’s not my favorite, but I don’t turn my nose up at it.

It combines sweet, sour, savory, salty, and tangy all into one.

I like it. Grew up with it as a common choice. Worked at a pizza place in HS. I just know it’s controversial with strong opinions on both sides.

Ham and pineapple pizza is something you eat in Hawaii as both items are Iron Chef items in that state, :wink:

We like ham and pineapple

Grandma’s bacon fat biscuits with sausage, egg, and cheese for the last breakfast of the year.

Looks great, though the first mental response was you went to McDonalds…kidding since there is actual good stuff in them and the biscuits don’t look overcooked.

Had I been driving to LA today, the EggaMovieMuffin from McDonalds would’ve likely been my breakfast.

Is it wrong that I just heard that as Hank Sr?

Who else could you possibly want to hear singing.it?

Hank Jr, maybe. I can ALMOST hear Johnny Cash singing it in his raspy voice, like how he did Hurt.
