Favorite thing to cook?

What is your favorite thing to cook? Either simple or difficult.


Julie, trying to be a better

Wow, that's not an easy question. I'd have to say my favorite thing to make is bread, but to say what kind would be nearly impossible. Making fresh pasta also comes very close.

As far as a meal goes, this would incorporate my favorites:

- Freshly baked bread
- Grilled Porterhouse and Scampi and Asparagus with Bechamel Sauce (grilling out is always a fun event!)
- And Homemade Caramel-Toffee ice cream

Yeah, that would be fun to cook :)

I love grilling. A few times every summer I buy enough meat to fill my entire fridge and freezer , and then grill until I run out of coals or propane. Steaks, various fish, terriyaki pork skewers, ka-bobs, grilled veggies, corn, potatoes, rotisserie chickens, BBQ chicken breast on the bone, Terriyaki wings.... the list goes on and on and on, and I eat like a king for weeks and weeks and weeks :D

This new company I am contracting with has a policy called Meet Five for their employees, and every employee has to document meeting 5 new people within the company every week and asking them a bunch of dumb questions. Well, being the FNG (new guy), and having a cubicle in a corner where I can't escape when I see someone coming with a notepad in hand, I am hit up pretty often, and one of the usual questions is "what is your favorite food?" I just look at them and say "I love all different kinds of food. Name a cuisine, and I can tell you my favortie food in THAT cuisine." Same with this question: Name a cuisine, and I will tell you my favourite thing to cook in THAT cuisine.

I LOVE making soups, it is a great stress reducer for me.

Grilling is always fun to do.

AS far as meals go, there are to many to list...

Even though it's just my husband & myself, I think I most enjoy cooking our holiday meals - the Thanksgiving turkey & trimmings, the Xmas Roast Goose & trimmings, the New Years Day Cassoulet, etc., etc.

As far as simple meals, I think my favorites are the simple chicken braises - various chicken parts in one or another delicious different ethnic braising sauce. Rice or noodles & a green salad, & a delicious dinner is on the table.

I love to cook everything. But my favorite thing to cook is the recipe that come out perfect, no matter what it is.

If pinned down, I love to make things that are spectacular, like a crown roast, or a Dutch Baby. I love making layer cakes with 5 or 6 layers, and barbecued turkeys. I like my food to look not just good, but incredible. Unfortunately, due to time and money constraints, incredible comes only a few times a year. That's why I usualy go for flavor and quality.

My only never-fail recipes are 1rst, pancakes, 2nd, meats - especially on the grill, and 3rd, potato recipes (and the last is ironic because I perfected my potato techniques and then found out I am diabetic, which rules out potatoes for me. But my family loves 'em . Oh, one more. My baked beans are successful as well.
