Oh dear.
I found this thread on the third page in Wizard's Lair.
So bumping with bread I baked this morning.

I've made this bread a lot recently, but this is the first time I made it in a loaf pan. Until now it's been round or oval shaped loves of different sizes. But the loaf pan is by far the most photogenic.
Also, I originally took this picture to show off the trivet underneath the bread. We had received it as a wedding gift, and nobody was sure what it was. So I sent the image out to my family announcing that we had decided it was a trivet.
And to show off the nice bread ;)

I see this thread has come to a stand still of sorts. Perhaps we could revive it and have some fun as well by using KRECIPES and swapping favorite recipes in here? It would be good food, good cultural exchange and we might even get more development for krecipes which I like to use as it is easy to edit.

Any one else like this? If yes, how could we post a recipe for others to download in kecipes format?

cheers all...

"cooking?" or "baking?" (or both?) How about "mixing?" Basically that's all you do making tuna fish sandwhiches, open the can and mix stuff. I'm "cooking" tuna fish sandwhiches I suppose.

Thread necromancy!

I made Nile Tilapia fillets in a vegetable sauce that I invented on the spot.
It looked so colorful that I had to take a picture.

Thanks Max, this again is looking very tasteful.
And thank you even more, for keeping the thread alive.

These days everybody is enjoying holidays, one way or the other, there should be much more input.
Show your wonderful dishes from abroad, i am always in for a good diner. :)

Anyway, here my contribution.
Our first lunch in a foreign country for years, June 2013 Nice, France:

Well, in that case...
Joining the fish will be roast potatoes in spices and a chicken roasted in a wine and onion sauce with some fresh herbs. The wine is a local white Emerald Riesling, almost too good to cook with.
Who wants to come for supper?

The chicken is "upside down".
I cut the backbone and neck out, and spread the chicken out on the bottom of the pan. This way the top sits in the sauce and absorbs it while roasting, giving us a nice juicy chicken that doesn't dry out.

I know it's not strictly "cooking " but yesterday, first fruits of the new season. Plums straight off the tree.
Sorry but there is no photo ;)

Gosh! Old replies..nevermind...

I'm cooking Bubble & Squeak because yesterday I had Irish Bacon and Cabbage.

Bubble & Squeak (So called because it bubbles and squeaks in the pan when it is cooked) was a traditional Breakfast meal using the day before leftovers of potatoes and cabbage fried slowly . Nowadays It seems to have been promoted to lunch. Modern Irish Gypsys tend to eat both Bacon & Cabbage and Bubble & Squeak with another British tradition...HP sauce.
You will be suprised at how tasty and cheap to make these are. A tip...use the water the bacon hock has boiled in to overnight soak dried peas..add a stock cube and lots of mint from the garden ..and voila.. Ham Pea & Mint Soup for supper too.

Scrimpers be aware that you can feed several people for several days this delicious & nourishing food for about 6 Euros.Unless you
really want the HP sauce because this can cost a fortune depending where you live.

I cooked Southwest style black beans with rice and a spicy tomato sauce with chicken sausage including feta cheese and spinach. Yum! I really have enjoyed the posts of the various foods.

Hi All!
I have not been in here in years as I have been distracted by life circumstances and not on line much lately. Nice to be back and nice trying version 6 Live today. Looks great, works well with a Thinkpad X220.

cheers!

Glad to see you back zxr250cc. :)

And a real kick-up for the topic, which was away for years as well.
