So far non basic stuff I can do is to fry potato, to caramelize onions and last time I tried to do pancakes I actually managed to do something edible.

How about you?

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Nice thread. i only cook for someone and never really for myself.
Spending time and money getting ingredients and then spending more time cooking it just to have a 10 minute meal alone? No thanks.

Have made pancakes several times, if you have the right tools its easier to mix in the flour without it forming clumps.
Vegetable ragu,
Lithuanian cold soup,
Made this white chocolate dessert with cookie dough inside and sprinkled with desiccated coconut. I called them snowballs.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
The most impressive thing I've ever made was shrimp scampi. It was alright I guess.

Well I can't eat the vast majority of foods that I used to anymore unfortunately, but I don't image I've forgotten how to cook most of what I've learned.

I can cook basic things like eggs, bacon, rice, boiled/steamed various vegetables, pan fried steak/porkchop or chicken/turkey breast.

For actual recipes I can make tacos (with my own seasoning), quesadillas, deviled eggs/egg salad, and my favorite thing I've made breakfast pizza. Which is making a deep dish crust out of biscuit dough (scones for you bongs) and pouring eggs onto the crust and topping it with various things you'd put in an omelette like bacon, ham, onions, peppers, cheese etc. and baking it in the oven until the crust is golden brown.

I can cook damn near anything.

My career as a chef really took off this year and right now I've got three world class resorts competing for my contract, so things are really looking up for me these days.

My favorite dish right now consists of a bed of wild mushroom au gratin served over leek cream, topped with asparagus, which is in turn topped with a filet mignon, and a small salmon filet to the side, drizzled with leek cream.

I wish I had a picture because this is an absolutely gorgeous plating.

Here are the recipes for the leek cream and the wild mushroom au gratin, everything else is self explanatory.
Leek Cream
Chopped Leek
Heavy Cream
White Wine
Butter
Vegetable Stock
Salt & Pepper
Ancho-Citrus

Add all the other ingredients over high heat, allow the white wine to reduce, then add the heavy cream last, turn heat to low and bring to a simmer, then mix in a blender.
Wild Mushroom Au Gratin
Sliced Potatoes, I like Yukon Gold the best but red potatoes are a close second
Your choice of mushrooms, I prefer mixed wild mushrooms but criminis are a good grocery store substitute
Bacon
Shallots
Garlic
Butter
Heavy Cream
Your choice of cheese, I prefer four parts queso fresco and one part manchego
Bread Crumbs

Sautée bacon, shallots and garlic together, then add all ingredients excluding potatoes and bread crumbs to the mixture. Make sure to save some cheese.

Steam the sliced potatoes until they're just shy of done.

Mix the two components in a casserole dish, then sprinkle a mixture of bread crumbs and cheese over the top. Bake at 325 until a crust forms over the top.

note: neither of these recipes include proportions for the ingredients because tbh the balance isn't so delicate that it matters, just use good judgment and taste your cooking often

Hmm...
Not much that isn't basic. I'm good at breakfast foods and am very decent at homemade breakfast crunch wraps (like from Taco Bell).

I also make good popcorn via whirly pop.

Besides not being soaked in grease, yeah, it’s pretty close. I make it with provel cheese, though, so it’s not going to be 1:1.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

do you put anything nonstandard in your deviled eggs?

I like to use ginger and cayenne pepper, as well as ground dry mustard instead of prepared Dijon mustard.

I've never really experimented with anything. I would just put diced pickles on them. I've thought about adding peppers to make them spicier but I can't eat them anymore so I haven't tried.

Baking huh... I thought about it some time ago, but oven here, in dorm, is broken. I wish I could bake bread, it would be great. Or even bake a pizza.

My memory has been filled with so many holes lately
I’ll feel something but forget what I was thinking about so I’ll just be left feeling tired or excited without remembering what it was about

It's because you are not doing anything noteworthy and nothing happens in your life. Can you even tell the difference between this year and previous one?

Don't listen to that drivel.

I'm constantly traveling around the country, meeting new people, seeing and doing new things, and even learning new skills.

However, if you asked me to tell you how many days I've been in the state I'm visiting right now, and I couldn't look at a calendar, I couldn't do it. The answer (now that I've checked) is only six.

If short term memory loss and days running together bother you, I suggest getting a prescription for Adderall instead of worrying about whether or not your life is exciting enough. The two things are probably unrelated to each other, and only a psychiatrist can say for sure.
