Name: Tom Yam
I love seafood and spicy food. So what's better than putting all kinds of seafood into a big pot with fish stock and adding lots of spice in it? Be careful, it's a bit hot.

YaY, a cooking thread! ^^
What a great initiative!
I love cooking... now I just need to find a good recipe to post here...
*walks away trying to find a decent recipe*
ps: I'm getting hungry when I look at this thread, especially when I look at LadyH.'s delicious cake..... *drool*
Found a great one:
Name : Chocolate Mousse
Category : Dessert
Style : Belgian (Im from the land of chocolate XD )
Servings: 4 to 6
I know lots of chocolate dishes and because Im from Belgium I thought I may want to make something with chocolate. My mother can also make some heavenly chocolate mousse, so thats maybe why I chose this one. ^^
6 ounces (175 grams) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups (360 ml) heavy whipping cream
4 to 5 large eggs
1/3 cup (66 grams) granulated white sugar (or 2 packages of vanilla suger, if you like that one better)
1/4 cup (60 ml) water
* Melt the chocolate with the water au bain marie° or on a very tender heating source.
* Whisk together the egg yolks with the sugar until well combined, then add the molten chocolate.
* Whip the whipping cream until it starts to look like whipped cream .
* Gently add the whipped cream to the sugar-yolk-chocolate-mixture.
* Then whip/ beat the egg whites to a snowy-foam and finally add also this with the other mixture.
* Once everything is mixed you have to stop mixing!!! Only mix as much as necessary, cause over-mixing may cause the mousse to fail! (There has to be enough air in the mixture.)
* Finally you may pour the yummy chocolate mousse in their pre-destined bowls.
* Put them for at least one hour in the refrigerator before serving.
* Right before serving you can add the chocolate shavings and a raspberry if you like.
Now youre totally done! Enjoy!!!
I don't have one at the moment but I think we all know what to think when we hear the word chocolate mousse.
mmm, these recipes sound yummy :3
Here's another of my favorites:
Name of Dish: Modified Chicken Salad
Category: Main course
Style: American? XD I dunno
Servings: 6 or 7, about.
Description: This is a recipe for chicken that can be used as a sammich filling or on crackers. My mom taught me how to make it, since I don't like traditional chicken salad.
1 can of shredded chicken (delicious <3)
Direction: dump chicken into bowl, and use forks to pull apart chicken so it's shredded. Add about 3 or 4 large spoonfuls of mayonnaise (more if you prefer) and mix with fork until mixed. add bacon bits and almonds, mix. Add a teaspoon of teriyaki sauce and a teaspoon of soy sauce (again, more if you prefer). Spread on bread or crackers and enjoy <3
Pictures: none =( maybe later <3
and here i thought i was the only guy that cooked ^^; im glad there are other guys posting in here.
Name of Dish: Chocolate Drope Cookies
Style: well as far as i know cookies came from england but i have no idea where this recipe came from. its ban passed down four generations in my family, getting changed a little bit every year.
Servings: ~ 3 dozen (36)
Description: these are somthing my family associates largly with christmas, its the only time we make them. i learned this version of the recipe from my mom, who got it from her mom, from her mom. only two of my sisters cook them (out of 7 siblings). its kinda spicy, but not that bad. and as far as i know it isnt bad for anyone ^^; they're best with frosting, but i dont know the recipe for the kind my mom makes (i have to bug her for it next year)
1 cup brown sugar (240 ml)
1 tsp. vanilla (4.9 ml)
1/2 cup butter (120 ml)
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (56 grams, i think )
1/2 cup milk (120 ml)
1 1/2 cups flour (360 ml)
1 tsp. salt (4.9 ml)
2 tsp. cinnamon (9.8 ml)
1 tsp. nutmeg (4.9 ml)
1/2 tsp. cloves (2.5 ml)
a big mixing bowl
Direction: melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so. make sure its entirly melted. beat the egg & brown sugar until light, then add vanilla, then add to the butter/chocolate. Add the dry ingredients and milk one at a time while stirring. i strongly suggest adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time, and waiting until it is completly blended before adding more. this says use a greased cookiesheet, but i remember ever remember greasing it but maybe you should just to be careful. well anyways, drop then onto the cookiesheet. curl up your index finger, and look down at it. it should be about that big. change as you feel fit. bake @ 350 degress Fahrenheit (~177 degrees Celcius) for 8-10 mins)
i dont have any pictures, nor can i find any, but they should look similar to this. not as tall, though
Hmmm these things look very yummy indeed! <333 Now I want to eat chocolate cookies... lol
I also got to try the modified chicken salad sometime.
But what I really wanted to say is that I am happily surprised that out of four ppl that have posted here, three of them have been males! hehe
I think we have a lot of kitchen prince-gentlemen around here. XD
Wow, that looks delicious. Must be salty and spicy, just how i like it.
^well it's not exactly spicy since the province that it originated from isn't really big on spicey food... i guess you could make it spicey if wanna...

Dish: Tsatsiki - Delicious yogurt sauce, goes great with grilled meat, and fish, and on bread etc Name of Place here what your recipe will make (i.e.: Fruit Cake, T-Bone Steak, Caesar Salad, etc.)
Category: Place Here type of Dish (i.e.: Soup, Dessert, Cake, Salad, Main Course, Snack, Drinks, etc.)
Servings: Uhh.. depends on how much you make/eat, 2-5 typically.
Smoked Salmon Pizza (Medium - meh)
Category - Lunch/Dinner
Type - mediterranean (Do salmon even swim in that sea though?)
Servings - 1 (hungry) - 3
Lenten Pita (pie) of the Sea - Orthodox Christians fast from meat and dairies before easter, and I had to come up with a seafood pie for.. something my sister asked for. But, I have to be honest, everyone liked it, and it was really really good. (Ridiculously Overcomplicated? You bet! HARD)
Style - If you watch too much Food Network, and you're stressed because it's holiday season, and you have 2-3 recipes you've been playing around with, and your sister suddenly calls you up and asks you to prepare something, meanwhile you can't use HALF your kitchen because you're fasting... and its 4am because you were on the phone with your girlfriend all day, that's the style.
Category - Dinner
Servings - 5-6
I also make a REALLY really good burger... but I can't share the recipe, because.. I'm silly like that and burger recipes are meant to be kept secret, lest some jerk steal them and opens up a burger place.
Some 3 year old pictures of things I had made, when my dig camera DID work =/
