Whatcha Cooking? [Food Pictures]

Forgot to post this, but last week I tried my hand at making some ropa vieja. Seared a flank steak and threw it in a slow cooker with some tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced peppers, and onions.

Also attempted making corn tortillas for the first time. Didn’t flatten them enough, so they came out a little thick :sweat_smile:

Ooooh, that looks good.

Ooh, I’ve wanted to try making corn tortillas for a long time. Would you recommend your recipe?

I don’t even know if I’d call it a ‘recipe’ per se :sweat_smile:. I just bought some yellow corn masa flour and followed the instructions on the package. Just a matter of getting the correct ratio of flour to water (and I added a pinch of salt as well)

I just made tacos with leftover bison pot roast and I would be okay eating this forever.

I don’t know why the photo is upside down, somehow that’s how flavor town goes.

I’m still messing with the dough recipe (this one could have used a bit more water) but wow, making pizza on a pizza stone is so much better than without!

A phalanx of coconut macaroons (I think that’s the English name for them?)

Yes they are. Well done.

Holiday baking continues! I believe English just uses the German name for this kind of thing: Stollen.
I was a little bit nervous because this is supposed to be difficult to make, but maybe making lots of small pieces (confectionary?) is much more forgiving than one big loaf.

Pressed sandwich with leftover ratatouille and a jar of roasted red peppers I had sitting in the cupboard.

A big birthday is coming up (my 40th!) and I’ve made Käsesahnetorte (cheese cream tart?) in preparation:

I’m going to have to freeze most of it since I live alone and am not going to invite guests. And, even though this is my favourite cake of all time, I don’t really want to eat a piece every day for an entire fortnight* :wink:

*) I had to really concentrate to not spell it Fortnite…

That looks good as fuck, yo.

Thanks! I’ll post a picture of a slice in a few days :slight_smile:

Happy Thanksgiving Apple pie!

So in lieu of a party with guests I decided to treat myself all day on my 40th birthday. Part of that was food, starting with breakfast:


Homemade fluffy white bread with curd and strawberry jam, hot cocoa and a soft-boiled egg.

Then lunch:


A slice of liver with fried apples and onions, potatoes and some (store-bought) mousse au chocolat for dessert. I know you can’t really see the liver, but I promise you it’s under there, and it was amazing :drooling_face:

In the afternoon, a slice of the cake I showed off earlier:


It sagged a little bit in the fridge because it didn’t cool fast enough, but still held together. And the taste turned out just perfect!

“Cooking” is extremely stretching it this time. Since Hijiyama in 13 Sentinels would eat five Yakisoba Pan a day, I had to try it. It’s a Yakisoba Ramen sandwich, an extremely* inauthentic one

Maybe one day I’ll put in the trouble and cook up a proper one with Japanese bread and Japanese mayo and pickled garlic. But for now, this is quite good. *
