I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. What i like to cook is the things that people will like and enjoy, so it is up to the them to decide what I would cook.

As ingredients to use, ricotta and mushrooms. They are so versatile and I can do so many wonderful things.

From a bit wider perspective, pasta and risotto, also for their versatility and room for experiments.

Favorite thing to cook

I like to make soups, stews and casseroles from bits and peices in the refrigerator. The only draw back is that I can rarely replicate something my husband really likes

My favorite thing to cook is Louisiana Red Beans & Rice:Drop 1 lb. dried red kidney beans in boiling water & boil briskly for 2 minutes. Turn off heat & let beans soak for 1 hour. Next, melt 4 Tablesps. butter in large heavy pot and saute 1 cup finely chopped scallions(with tops),1/4 cup finely chopped onion,1 rib celery;chopped and 1 teasp. finely-chopped garlic. Don't let this brown; just saute until soft.Add your soaked beans, along with their liquid to this pot, along with 2 smoked ham hocks.Next, add1 teasp. salt or adobo seasoning,1 bay leaf, 1/2 teasp. ground black pepper, 1/2 teasp. ground cayenne pepper ( or to taste), 1/4 teasp. cumin powder. Bring this all to a boil then lower to a medium-simmer. While pot is simmering, fry 1 lb. sausage ( the best sausage is real Andouille. If you can't find it, a good italian sweet sausage is a perfectly good substitute) Fry sausage light brown, seperating & crumbling it with cooking spoon, all the while. Add 1/4 cup water to fry-pan, scrape all bits from pan bottom & add this to bean-pot. Simmer slowly, partially covered, for about 3 hours or until beans are very soft & have a nice, thick juice surrounding them. Remove ham hocks, cool a little then remove all meat from them & stir it back into pot.Add just 2 drops of bottled liquid smoke to bean pot & stir well. Remove bay leaf. Serve over fluffy white rice. Serves 4 to 6 persons.

Honestly, I think this the most delicious recipe i've come across, for cajun cooking. I make it often and there's never any left ( which is a good sign!). Enjoy, wills53

This is hard. I have things I love to cook/bake and I also have things I love to eat but hate to cook/bake.

I'd have to say trying something NEW is my fave. Tonight I made my own marinade for chicken and loved it.
