I can't cook, I can burn toast and freeze Ice cubes though!

My friend makes these amazing pixel cookies where he makes all coloured cookie dough and cuts the dough in a square shaped playdough cutter then he lines all the cubed shape strips into a picture of whatever video game character and bakes. They are so amazing! I'll have to find a picture.

i was *going* to make cupcakes today, ran out of time. i'm really not a cook/baker. i did make dinner for the fam the other night- which for me is a biggish thing. tuna bake, garlic potato mash garlic bread. that's probably the extent of my culinary skills.

I can't bake, but I'm willing to learn..

My talent is in eating yummy stuff that others bake.

I can't really cook. My favourite dish is meatloaf cause I like making little mince snowmen and then playing Stuart Diver with them in an avalanche of breadcrumbs/egg/spices.

hi sputnik, fellow foodie!!!

i love cooking and have to admit i'm quite good at it.
love every aspect of cooking: thinking about what to prepare, the shopping, the quietly preparing everything for a big dinner, watching ppl enjoy my food, the social aspect, the feeding aspect...love it!

i mostly cook belgian cuisine and i love the vast array of high quality ingredients we have here.

what's your passion?

nice to meet you!

Hellloo fellow foodie! I knew there would have to be a few of us on here!

I absolutely love cooking for people. Provided it isn't a massive flop of course. I'm having a dinner party tonight for 7. A friend from London is in Sydney at the moment and she has requested spaghetti bolognese, which I find a little boring. But I cooked it last night (everyone know spaghetti bolognese is better the next day) with 50/50 beef and pork and some good quality smokey bacon. I'm making italian mushroom ragout and home made mini garlic breads to put in the middle of the table and the guests can serve themselves. For dessert I have made lemon coconut truffles! Main course is going to be quite heavy so I wanted something light/small to finish it off.

What kitchen plans do you have?

I had to go and make a big breakfast after reading this, just polished off some eggs on toast

I love cooking and baking! I make great curry from scratch, and love to do all the sides that go with it..

The other night I made a divine prawn, feta and herb risotto that was really yummy, and I also finally found a banana bread recipe that I adore!

Where do you get your inspiration from? Do you buy food magazines, or get recipes off the internet? Any websites you can recommend?

Oh that risotto sounds devine!! I do buy food mags sometimes. Donna Hay is my favourite!! I have a few of her cookbooks also. The main food website that I use is lifestylefoods.com.au it's great for searching for recipes too. You can search by ingredients which I love.

I love cooking too! Add me on Facebook and you can see my rainbow cake And all of the other cakes/cupcakes I love making.

I also make great massaman curry from scratch, corn fritters, takoyaki, okonomiyaki, sushi, pad thai, rice risottos, pizzas, whatever! I just love food. As soon as I have a house (decent kitchen is a must), I will be having some of you girls around for a big gay dinner party.

Sounds awesome! You should post pics.

It just occurred to me that I should make rainbow coming out cakes. Just like last weekend's one but with "I'm gay" iced on top. If it goes badly then you still have cake. Perhaps I'll give one to my family one day.

I tried to make Bacon Jam on Monday... but it was an immense failure and I am still trying to scrape off bits of bacon from my crock pot!

Oh, also I recomend checking out Not Quite Nigella's food blog. She does food reviews and her own and other people's recipes. I'm addicted!

I'd link to her site, but because I'm new I can't!

I find cooking quite therapeutic (I get this way whenever Masterchef is on :P) but I'm only just learning the basics of chopping and stuff.

But been a hardcore eater of pretty much everything you got up until recently. When i got food poisoning from sushi.

mmmmmm...sounds lovely!!!!!! thank god i live so far away coz i would've invited myself!!!!

spag bol, the real spag bol, is a bit of a boring dish but in all honesty, when made the proper italian way, it takes forever!
my colleague's mum (they're from sicily) makes her own tomato base by putting meat with freshly peeled tomatoes and herbs of course for hours and hours on the stove....takes forever but the taste reflects that of course.

those lemon coconut truffles sound delish!!!
doesn't matter if the main course is a bit heavy...give your guests a nice digestive drink and they'll be chuffed like pigs in shit...

well we're on a diet...summer's coming so a change of culinary habits is in order....long over due to be honest! but anyway, every excess kilo comes with a lovely story so....
am making white asparagus, don't know if you can get them but they are divine. the non-diet way of preparing them very nicely is to boil them a bit, finish them off in cleared butter, boil eggs, mash 'm with some of the melted butter and some finely shredded parsley, serve all of this with some little boiled potatoes and bob's your uncle. so the diet version of this is without the butter and no tatties.

ok, i got a feeling this thread is gonna become a foodie blog!

they'll come naturally...one ingredient in someone else's post will make me think of other recipes....

so your recipe of today is to make my dish the way i described it in my previous post but use green asparagus if you can't get the white ones. yummie for the tummie!!

i'll introduce you girls to my national cuisine...prolly one of the best in the world....and no, us belgians do not have a patriotic bone in our body so it must be true
