This is one of my very favorite things to cook. It's SO easy! We serve it with cheese and sour cream on top, and we use Frito Scoops instead of a spoon.

YUM!!

I cooked a roast chicken dinner for my family with home made Yorkshire puddings, which my children love.

I'm making pesto pasta tonight; it's one of my favorite dishes.

Oh, I think I will be following suit!

I love to bake them on a huge cookie sheet with all sorts of gooey stuff on them, and then a make a dip out of sour cream and salsa.

YUM!!!

Yesterday morning I cooked a batch of pancakes on the electric griddle for the family. I used Hungry Jack complete buttermilk (just add water style). I like to thin the batter down more than what it calls for. Nothing like light textured melt-in-your-mouth pancakes

*Breakfast has been added to the menu*

My kids love "breakfast for dinner" -- that usually means pancakes. Easy and fast when you haven't planned anything.

Mmmmm, pancakes. Never use ready made mixes though. Thats cheating. Make them from scratch every time, roll fried banana up in them and smother in homemade caramel sauce.

I have a sweet tooth.

I prefer french toast to pancakes. I love it, and eat it a couple of times a week. My favorite thing is to put peanut butter on it with the maple syrup.

YUM!

My favourite cheat's "looks kind of difficult but is really easy" dish.

It's a filled large mushroom with three cheeses, covered with a thin layer of bacon, baked for half an hour on top of tagliatelle in a white sauce, served on a bed of lettuce.

It's piss easy and looks very chef-y. =D

Peanut butter on french toast? You'd be a queen in our house, peanut butter is a staple over here. Oh, and cake. Can't live without cake.

You should try it. I have never in my life enjoyed peanut butter more than when I mix it with maple syrup. It is SO good!

Well, today's dinner should be good. I've got a bit of free time on my hands and thought I'd treat everyone to a White Chocolate Cheesecake.

The idea behind this thing is disgusting, but I love it- guilty pleasure: It's got something like 300-400 calories a slice.

Anyway, from what I can remember from last time (need to check the recipe book):

Philadelphia+cream cheese+ melted white choc+ butter+sugar?

Then mash some biscuits into crumbs, mix with butter to make a base.

Blend some raspberries for a puree topping.

Leave the whole thing to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.


I'm gonna get fat tonight!

I never thought of putting peanut butter on french toast. I'll have to try that. And yeah, pancakes for me is a special once or twice a year treat on birthdays or at New Year, simply because the kind I make are so rich. If I ate them regularly I wouldn't fit through my front door.

Peanut butter on waffles is good too -- as long as it's not the completely flavorless organic goop my wife buys.

Lol, yeah, your pancakes sounded that rich. But I bet they are SO good!

I've had bad experiences with shop bought and restaurant waffles so tend to avoid them in my own eating regime. If you've got a good recipe though, I'd consider giving them a go, and yep, also had bad experiences with organic peanut butter. My sister buys it and it tastes weird. I'm all for Sunpat.

You a crunchy or a smooth kind of guy?

Oops, you got this in before I clicked post. I hope Winterstorm doesn't do her tidying thing till after you've had a chance to read.

They are rich, and oh so good, mmmmhmmm. Indeedy. I figure what's the point in making them if they're going to be pale and healthy shadows of themselves, you know?

No recipe -- we eat these organic whole grain waffles -- they're not too bad, really, but I wouldn't recommend them. Everything we eat has to be free of preservatives, processed flower etc.

I like crunchy -- but we buy smooth. I'm outnumbered 3 to 1 on it. It's OK, I'm used to it.

Ah, cool. Though I hear you on trying to eat healthy, it can be a bit restrictive at times. I try to go for healthy or organic and natural non-processed foods when I can but sometimes things need a bit of sugar and salt and modification, ya know?

I like crunchy -- but we buy smooth. I'm outnumbered 3 to 1 on it. It's OK, I'm used to it.
Haha. You poor beleagured bastard. You should buy crunchy and hide it in a cupboard in your office. Only bring it out when no one else is around. That way you keep your ladies and yourself happy all at the same time.

My wife and kids are out of town. They're not big meat-eaters, so I went out and bought a huge thick steak and grilled it up, medium rare. They all hate mushrooms (brainwashed by mom), so I sauteed a big pile of those too. Now I'm going to watch "Reservoir Dogs." Aahh -- sweet freedom.

No way. I watched Reservoir Dogs recently after not having seen it in years. It's still a very cool film and as good now as when I first saw it. Good choice, mister.

Not so sure about the steak though...

Heh. The steak was awesome. Enjoyed Reservoir Dogs too. I watched it because my wife has a pretty low tolerance for violence.

Tonight -- it's sushi. Another thing the better half won't eat. Got to make hay while the sun shines.

Wow, you have odd tastes. Never tried sushi but I figure if I was starving on the seashore I'd get to try it regularly.
