Welcome to DC Coco! It looks and sounds delish! One of my favourite meals, salmon, rice and broccoli. YUM!

try going to
National Vanilla Ice Cream Day Dinner - 7/23/2018

sorry couldn't make the link but find the above thread and you will see what some came up with for their dinner/supper.

Someone usually starts a new thread for a day's meal. Should you start one, be sure to include the date!

and Welcome Again!

Hello, Coco! Welcome to DC. I’m excited to see what you’ll bring to the table, literally!
Do you favor any specific cuisine? That teriyaki salmon looks wonderful!

Aw thanks Joel! Hmmm my favorite cuisine would definitely have to be Asian. I make alot of salmon dishes, and poke bowls. Sushi is my favorite food in the world yet I have not tried to dabble making that just yet. How about you? What's your favorite cuisine?

I love Asian flavor profiles, too. And Indian, although that could be considered Asian, too. Caribbean cuisine also tickles my fancy. Anything with seafood, even recipes with “krab!” And I love making bread. All kinds. And for American cuisine, I go for the Cajun/Creole every time!

I haven’t tried sourdough yet. I’ve started several “starters” but get lazy about maintaining them and they either dry up or get moldy and gross. I’ll get around to it someday. Also, my current financial situation does not include money for the endless flour that maintaining a starter requires in the beginning.

Haha well I totally know what you mean! I am really curious about making it though! Hopefully you can get around to it soon!

Welcome to DC! Our favorite Asian cuisines are Thai and Korean. My wife is the sushi maker at home. We are very into seafood as well.

Welcome, from the Dallas region of Steelers Nation.

My whole family tree in America is rooted 40 miles from Pittsburgh. I lived in Mount Lebanon for a few years.

I hope to see some recipes for Pittsburgh food. I don't have any experience cooking Pittsburgh food... just eating it.
