Something tasty this way comes!



The last years, I have discovered an interest in cooking that I never thought I would have. Had someone told me some time ago I'd enjoy spending time in the kitchen and making tasteful presentations - and that I'd invite people over just to have a reason to cook something interesting - I would have laughed in their face. And though, I have slowly learnt and started enjoying cooking, partly because if I didn't, my ex would have fed me solely with ketchup pasta or plain rice, and partly because [Weet-weet] loves it too, and now that we are - and live - together, we try out every idea we have.

So here are pictures of food for you to drool on <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif> And of course, ask away any questions that come to your mind. I am but an amateur cook, but I love a good chat about food <img:44166_1164145171.gif>

Last evening's result of 3h of work. I am proud of [Weet-weet]'s skills at sushi-making :D

Can you say I like making (and eating) maki? xD

More of [Weet-weet]'s sushi

Flashy chirashi!
Basically, a chirashi is just a bowl of rice with raw fish (sashimi). Wanted to make it more colorful and added lettuce, carrots, thin omelet and something else I don't identify anymore xD

Another chirashi, this time topped with tempura vegetables (peppers and carrots)
<img300*0:stuff/sushi%2c_maki.jpg>
More of yesterday's dinner: makis with cucumber and tuna, sushi with tuna filling, salmon on top and tied together with stripes of omelet (her idea again)

One of my first attempts at sushi and maki making.

One evening's idea for the kids I babysit: I made some very thin omelets (like the French crêpes) and filled them with a mixture of cream cheese and chives, then turned them into little bags. The kids were very curious to unwrap them and discover what's inside ^^
<img300*0:stuff/spaghetti%2c_mushrooms%2c.jpg>
When my brain mixes up two Gordon Ramsay recipes, you get spaghetti with champignons and leek in creamy sauce and garlic bread crumbs.

This time, I tried coating the chicken legs in a mixture of cream cheese, aromatic herbs ("herbes de Province", the French call them) and eggs. Still drooling when remembering.
<img300*0:stuff/pasta%2c_sardines.jpg>
This time I got Ramsey's recipe right: pasta, sardines, garlic breadcrumbs and a drop of lemon juice when ready. Just as delicious.

Our first try of tabbouleh: bulgur, tomatoes, olives, cucumber, lots of mint.

Deserts and other sweets

<img:http://elftown.com/img/drawing/80746_1099418185.jpg>


<img300*0:stuff/desert%2c_strawberry%2c_mousse.jpg>
Strawberry mousse
One of my favourite summertime deserts when I was a kid ^^ Simply whip egg yolks with sugar, mix the strawberries down to a puree and add them in, then put in the fridge. It's simple and delicious :D
<img300*0:stuff/muffins%2c_tea.jpg>
I am not one for sweets, but that evening I felt like some orange muffins would go well with my tea ^^

One of the best ideas [Weet-weet] had: cream cheese mixed with a lot of coconut flakes, and caramelized almonds for topping. It was simply delicious.

<img300*0:stuff/cheesecake.jpg>
Tried a cheesecake recipe that didn't require using an oven. Interesting, but not my favourite.
