Any crazy favorite dishes?


Recommended Posts

What makes this food appealing?

Basically, discuss your favorite food and why it's your favorite. Maybe when you first tried it and your first impression.

Ummm...for me, well, I'm not really sure. I really like homemade barbecue pork ribs with roasted potatoes and vegetables. No crazy dishes for me.

Share your favorite food and comment on each other's picks.

Bon appetit everyone!

it isn't my favorite dish- but I like dipping saltines in key lime pie yogurt.

I also like dipping pecans or cucumbers in homemade spaghetti sauce. :P

pizza and ranch dressing sauce

One pizza place I go to offers ranch dressing sauce separately to eat with pizza. First time I heard of it, I thought to myself, hmmmm that's a little different. But when I tried it I really, really liked it! Yum!

Gator tail FTW! Haven't had it in a long time, but if I recall correctly, it's like eating a more rugged chicken tender [pun not intended].

I had that once, I agre.

Tastes like chicken :)

That is the only way we eat it around here :)

I like Grilled Egg and Cheese sandwiches. You fry the egg (stir it so the yoke cooks too) and then put the egg aside for a minute. Put your grilled cheese together like you normally would, but put the egg between the layers of cheese. Then cook like you normally would. Give it a few extra minutes to cool, the egg gets hot. I have my neighbors in my apartment building addicted to them.

This post is making me hungry. Oh, not from reading about all of your gross food habits, but from thinking about Sushi. I need a Spicy Lobster Roll, NOW! :shock:

MMM... Sushi!!!! I love barbque'd eel and rainbow roll!

Hey since this is a food thread, why not post your recipies? :wink:

Great idea!

Since I started all this :roll: , I'll start.

This one my youngest sister found on the net. It became our family's favorite:

Strawberry Log Cake

Yield: 1 cake roll - 8 servings

Cake:

4 large egg yolks

2 large eggs

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup sifted cake flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 tablespoons warm water

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

Powdered sugar

Strawberry Filling:

l cup whipping cream

1 tablespoon sugar

3 tablespoons prepared lemon curd, at room temperature*

1 pint basket (about 3 1/4 cups) California strawberries, stemmed and coarsely chopped

Garnish:

Powdered sugar

1 pint basket (about 3 1/4 cups) California strawberries

To make Cake:

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line 18- x 12-inch jellyroll - sheet pan with aluminum foil; coat with vegetable cooking spray.

In large mixer bowl beat yolks and eggs at high speed about 5 minutes until thick and lemon-colored. Continuing at high speed, gradually beat in granulated sugar until mixture is pale and thick. Gently fold in dry ingredients except powdered sugar to blend thoroughly. Fold in water, oil and vanilla. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake in center of oven about 10 minutes until springy to the touch.

Meanwhile, coat a clean dishtowel with powdered sugar. Invert hot cake onto towel close to one long edge. Gently peel off foil. Trim 1/2 inch off each short side of cake. Starting from long side, tightly roll cake and towel. Set on rack to cool completely.

To make Strawberry Filling:

In mixer bowl whip cream to form soft peaks. Beat in sugar to form stiff peaks. Fold in lemon curd to blend thoroughly. Mix in chopped strawberries. Gently unroll cake. Spread strawberry mixture evenly on cake and re-roll. Place seam-side-down. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut into 8 (about 1 3/4-inch) equal slices. Place each slice on serving plate. Garnish with whole and halved strawberries.

* Lemon curd can be found in the jam and jelly or gourmet section of most supermarkets.

It should look like this when you're done:

It's better to use Parchment paper sprinkled with powdered sugar and not a dish towel as it tends to get stuck to the towel and rip the cake. Good luck!
