Well not quite as deep as something like the God Thread but I really like cooking/eating (hurrrr) and I was wondering what everyone'd favorite foods and dishes are? I'm not really good at this whole making a thread thing I feel like there is a lot more expected of me than what I'm putting out there right now... Yeah.

I mean I would go first but my level of expertise is around "Capable of boiling noodles".

People talk about pressure like it's something negative. Pressure means your actions have meaning, that people care about whether you succeed or fail. Pressure is everything.

Since summer is around the corner (right,? I'm sure any day now)....here's a tasty little treat.

Take an apple, cut in slices.
Mix brown sugar and honey in a dish
Coat apple slices with brown sugar/honey mixture
Throw on the BBQ until caramelized
EAT!

i swear we've had 3-4 iderations of this already, it always just fizzles out and disappears. i think one was locked due to a heated personal dispute between vegans and smart people that enjoy all food.

I recently discovered how easy it is to make crepes...even gluten-free and even lactose-free ones.

Put this in a blender:
1 cup milk (use almond milk for lactose-free)
1/3-1/2 cup flour (use rice flour and tapioca starch for gluten-free)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter (use canola oil for lactose-free)

Blend for a couple minutes. Scrape sides and blend for another minute. Let it sit for 10-30 minutes (optional, but makes it more fluffy).

Pour some into the middle of a hot non-stick pan - take up a little less than half the pan. Then using a spatula, lightly pull (very lightly!) the liquid in each direction to make it more thin. Wait a couple minutes (till starting to brown like a regular pancake), flip with a rubber spatula (should hold together well), and brown the other side for a minute or two, then ready.

Serve with whatever you like. Fresh stawberries and Nutella spread is a personal favourite - crushed walnets puts it over the top.

---------------------------------

My wife can't have gluten, and is lactose intolerant, so crepes is something she can never get. In fact, until I made them the first time a couple of months ago, she had never had them. Now I make them once a week for her - it's so easy.

If I were young and single again, I would love to have this in my back pocket to impress the ladies. Especially one who is gluten-intolerant. It's sophisticated, yet simple and inexpensive.

I'm going to try this tomorrow or sometime soon, it sounds like something I'm actually capable of doing.

Any personal favorites would be really cool, even things that are far beyond my level of skill. I'm more infatuated with the idea of being able to cook more than the act itself. I have apps and all that on my phone but I'm just... bad at it.

Yogurt (I recommend fat free french vanilla) with your berry of choice thrown in, and a handful of almonds.

Healthy, filling, and oh so delicious.

This info is from a website and video explaining how to eat better. Basically I've been eating foods that burn fat instead of storing fat or turn into sugar. Rice, potatoes and corn turn into sugar which is stored as fat. One conflicting report from the video said that oatmeal is a bad carb but I read somewhere else that it acts as a binding agent with body fat stored and helps burn it off. I'm guessing it works since I've been losing weight so there's that. Bread, crackers and pasta are bad carbs too. There are good breads made from sprouted grain, rice or spelt, those are hard to find where I live so I just don't eat any bread.

The main thing to do is eat a small amount every 2 to 3 hours. It will help with metabolism, I feel hungry most of the time because I'm eating small meals but my stomach is adjusting to it and it helps burn fat that way too I think. Before I started eating that way I lost maybe 7 pounds in a month just from cutting out sugary or fatty foods like donuts, chocolate, etc. In 2 (to 3) weeks since I started I've lost close to 10 pounds. (That includes a weekend where I went off the diet, ate some tortilla chips, cheese, a couple oreos, a hamburger, and half a hot dog, which made me gain one pound back) The person that suggested this lost 35 pounds in the first 4 months.

Some of the things I eat:

Half a cup of oatmeal (cooked with a cup of water) 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, raspberries or strawberries and 1/8 of a cup of Silk Almond Vanilla Milk. (I had to start drinking this in place of cow's milk a few months ago because of acid reflux)

One egg + 1/4 cup of egg whites, 2 pieces of turkey bacon.

Brocoli soup with celery, carrots, (a sweet potato), some frozen peas, smoked turkey, low sodium ham and a can of cream of chicken. (Do the same with a pack of split peas) Sweet potato is optional, had one left over from the night before and didn't want to waste it. In the past I would make the soup with regular potatoes to make it a little thicker.

A cup of fruit salad, strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, apple, kiwi, etc. (I read that oranges turn into sugar as well, might have to check on that again since I still drink some orange juice)

Romaine lettuce, spinach, carrots, celery, cucumber, tomato (sometimes a piece of skinless chicken and turkey bacon) (fat free ranch dressing but I read somewhere that dressing turns to sugar as well)

Brown rice or a half a sweet potato with a fist sized piece of skinless chicken and other veggies (zuchinni, spinach, peppers, carrots, celery) (chicken or fish, we don't get very much fish down here sadly)

A can of tuna mixed with some spinach, mustard, diced celery.

Low fat Vanilla yogurt (the fat free kind I can't stand) (sometimes put blueberries in it)

A handful of dry roasted peanuts, almonds or cashews. (I want to make my own trail mix when I get a chance to get to the better grocery store. Almonds, cashews, peanuts, raisins, maybe some dried cranberries, pineapple and apricots.)

Sometimes a Special K protein shake or bar (even though it's pretty fatty and the bar has rice in it)

Steak with potatoes <3

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Baconnaise? Has anyone had that? The concept kind of disgusts me but I'm not as enamored with bacon as most seem to be.
