Default The Food Thread

I prefer to save money by cooking at home instead of going out to eat so goddamn much. But, I fucking love food and sometimes want a restaurant quality meal. It's a good thing that my wife and I love to cook. We're constantly challenging ourselves in the kitchen with new recipes.

This past winter, I learned how to make risotto. My favorite variations include the classic Risotto alla Milanese, Shrimp & Asparagus Risotto, and Beer, Bacon, Cheddar Risotto (I swap out the turkey bacon for the real stuff).

About a month ago, my wife and I used this video to make French Macarons:

We ended up eating all of them the next day.

This past weekend, I made the starter for this No-Knead Bread. Last night, I made a loaf from it, which was amazing.



What are some of your favorite recipes?

What do you use for a smoker? I'm interested in getting one once we get a patio set up in our back yard. I've heard a lot of good things about the Weber Smokey Mountain for both beginners and experts.

I used to have a cheap electric smoker from Lowes. It worked well enough to hook me. This year I got a Green Mountain pellet smoker.

I've seen those and they look amazing. I wish I had the money for one.

I have a Masterbuilt Electric smoker. I have a few friends with the Green Eggs, both big and small and they all love them and swear by them as well. /shrug maybe one day. I honestly haven't used my smoker in a while, but I need to soon. I miss that smoked food. It's just too convenient to head down the road to the BBQ place and get my fix.

I looked into getting a smoker. You can buy, but there's also a widely distributed plan for a DIY setup called the Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS). I've got one of those bullet style smokers but space is tight when I want to smoke a whole bird.

If you don't have a lot to smoke, the plain old Weber gets great reviews for entry-level smoking. I'm a novice, but the biggest issue for me is being able to add coals so anything with a door or access where I can add coals without losing all the heat is a plus.

i love the potato sausage soup at olive garden but unfortunately we have to drive an hour to the nearest town with an olive garden, so last friday, i searched the recipe for ZUPPA TOSCANA and made it myself. it came out even better than olive garden's because i was able to add more hearty portions of hot italian sausage, potato and kale. plus i will be eating more today for lunch. (i used 1.5 lb sausage, 3 large potatoes, 3 cups of Kale and more half and half instead of cream. bullion cubes instead of stock. it was relatively cheap for 8-10 servings)
