    I read a post where one of our members, Rochie, said he is a chef. I got to thinking that we don't have a post where we can share some good recipes, like barbeque or bratwurst. I wasnt thinking about turning this into an Oprah or Rachel Ray forum.......but we all love to eat. And some can cook better than others.

    So what do you say? Care to share some of your favorites?

    I cook about 95% of the meals around here but I don't time at the moment to throw a recipe at yah. How about instead of Lucky giving us his scones recipe we post manly, fireside, colon busting fare? :)

    I'm with you, Baby Girl. A dash of this and a pinch of that. I share the
    cooking duties with my bride. I can make a great mess of spaghetti, and
    I make my own sauce. I broil a steak like the guy at Golden Corral. I have
    "steak-dar", too. I leave the baking of sweats and cakes pies to the
    missus, tho.

    I am NO WHERE near patient enough to bake. I'm giddy when a cake from a box comes out right. :lol:

    as for grilling..I'm from Texas...:D if you kill it, I will grill it. AND WELL!

    I used to have patrons at my bar whose wives wouldn't eat anything that DIDN'T come from a store..they'd bring it to me so I could cook it up for them. YUM!

    WHAT I have never understood, from my own experience..it doesn't matter what the woman looks like(hell, i'd grill in the rain) cover her in the smell of BBQ pit and you have to beat them off with a stick...and NOT in a good way.

    I make a Killer PP and J

    honestly even with my limited back-country cooking skills I can still survive, but being a master at it I am not, will leave that to my Warrioress

    tonight home-made pizza, thick crust, dang can't beat that !, at least I can grate cheese without busting up the grater

    I'm with you but I will share a couple of 'no grill' recipes..

    Artichoke Chicken

    Big iron skillet-medium heat
    a little olive oils and 1/4 stick of butter, a dash of garlic
    put the chicken (WITH SKIN) on the skillet cold as it is firing up
    cook and turn to brown on either side
    near the end of the 'brwon cycle put in a couple of chopped green onions and let them work for about 3 minutes.

    add 1/4 cup of dry white wine (while sipping the rest of the bottle) with 1/4 cup water and pour in, cover and reduce heat

    Take a small container of artichokes, chop 'em up a little more, and add to skillet.

    Chop up about a half cup of mushrooms and add to skillet, stir up all the vegs into the bottom.

    The Chicken w/o wine, artichokes, onion and mushrooms cooks about 15 plus minutes, then its about five minutes doing the other stuff, then 5-10 more minutes coocking covered below 'medium' heat..until chicken doen to your taste.

    Serve with either white rice or Uncle Ben's Wild Rice and pour gravy on top.

    Salad or extra veg like brocolli if you want more.

    I admit that I can cook and bake. I can make both cakes and cookies without a box mix. :oops: Ok, I know but the lady's like it when you cook for them....it is a skill that has come in handy. :D Guys get a slow cooker. Throw in a can of french cut green beans, mushrooms, onions, tomato sause and paste. Cover some chicken with italian seasoning and place it on top of the mess. Let is cook for about 6 hours while you are out watching for breaking news. When you return, boil up some pasta. Pour chicken and all over the pasta and serve with a salad. The ladies will think that you worked all day making her diner.

    Chicken... 6 hours?? Sounds like it would come out like stringy mush.

    The chicken turns out firm. You can also use white wine as a stock. I made some again over the weekend. Throw food in the slow cooker and return from work with dinner/supper ready to go. If you want a mess try cooking rice in the slow cooker. I like steaming the rice and then added it after everything else is finished. What for christmas and I will share my christmas cookies with everyone, your choice of wild turkey or rum.....
