This is a meal so nice I had to make it twice.

Butter Garlic Chicken

[*snip*]

spooned some extra butter garlic sauce over all of it.


seriously. this is f'n delicious. and if your chicken isn't frozen, it only takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish. Juicy chicken .....::drool::.....

I always play with my recipes a little from time to time changing some of the ingredients, but this time I added some sliced onions and mushrooms. sprinkled them all over the top and inbetween the chicken. It turned out really really good and will now be a permanent addition to the recipe as far as I'm concerned.

So my friend is a cake decorator and she made a Nintendo cake for a 17 year old girls birthday.



I told her Pikachu didn't fit on a NES, but that is what the birthday girl wanted.

That's an awesome cake even if a 17 yr old girl wouldn't really know much about a NES as it's way before her time. /grumpyoldman

Cool looking cake, but to be honest I'm not that impressed by cakes like those. I couldn't do any better myself, don't get me wrong, but it's just people wrapping a rectangular sheet cake with colored fondant all the time. Not really any different than making something with Play-Doh.

She couldn't have grown up with it from her parents? I got a buddy on this very site that grew up with NES and SNES despite being born in 1994.

see that little tag at the end "/grumpyoldman"
that indicates that I wasn't actually being serious and even gives you a tone with which to read my not so serious comment. ;)

But seriously, the cake is cool, but I bet the majority of that icing taste like ****. I've always hated black icing, and all darker colors like red and grey and such as they are always bitter.

I plan on doing that with my kids. Every few years I will introduce them to a new Nintendo system starting with NES and ending with a Wii. Around that time I'll just open the floodgates and let them play what they want.


Of course, them seeing new systems at their friend's house might throw a wrench into these plans but at least I have the first decade or so to try and pull it off. I figure I'll try to do it until around the age 15 and then tell them they are free to play/own the systems and games they want.


Plus there is the 'old is cool' mentality that could kick in. I know I did a temporary trade with a friend where I gave him my new N64 for an old Atari since I never got much time with it when I was younger so it had a mysterious cool factor.


I'd like to teach some appreciation for older games and the evolution the medium has gone through.

Went to Vietnam, came back with a kick ass Phở recipe. I had a lot of phở over there and this recipe is easily one of the best I've tasted.

I see noodles, bean sprouts, mint, cilantro...but the real recipe probably tastes a lot better.

Vietnamese Phở Ba Serves 4

Ingredients
-200g sliced beef fillet
-400g of bone or chunk beef (for the stock)
-200g of rice noodles (glass noodles)
-100g of bean sprouts
-1 litre of water
-1/2 teaspoon of chilli paste (any will do, but I have a pretty dec recipe for this too)
-4 teaspoons of vegetable stock powder
-1 teaspoon of sugar
-4 star anise
-1 teaspoon of dried coriander or dried basil leaves or cinnamon stick
-2 inches of ginger crushed
-1/2 tablespoon of roasted crushed peanuts
-4 shallots
-1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
-2 tablespoons of lime juice
-2 tablespoons of fresh mint, coriander, basil (for garnish)

Method
Step 1: Making the stock
Add beef chunk or bones in a large pot with 2 teaspoons of the stock powder, 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar, ginger, dried coriander leaves (or basil or cinnamon), star anise, shallots and boiling water. Cook for 20 mins on high heat or simmer for an hour.

Step 2:
Marinate sliced beef fillet with chilli paste, 2 teaspoons of stock powder and a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar for a minimum of 30 minutes (maximum of 2 hours).

Step 3:
Place bean sprouts in each serving bowl. Soften rice noodles in boiling water for 20 seconds, drain then add on top the bean sprouts in the bowl.

Step 4:
Heat oil to medium hot, add marinated beef and cook for two minutes until the colour changes (or alternately you can just blanch the raw beef in in the broth once served, which is more commonly done in Vietnam and what I also prefer) then add on top of the noodles in the bowl.

Step 5:
When ready to eat add the strained broth to the serving bowl. Garnish with mint, coriander, basil, lemon juice and peanuts.

This is just your basic recipe, but it still tastes great. It's pretty open to interpretation and preference. I usually add a few vegies into the stock too, just stuff like carrots, bok choy and onions, that sort of thing. I've also chucked in a few more spices too, like coriander seeds or cloves. And obviously the longer you simmer the stock for the more flavoursome it'll be.

^I need to add that to the OP

I also just made some Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Only I had to use what was already in the kitchen, so it was not my usual recipe at all....

Left-over rotisserie chicken (I usually season and cook my own chicken breast)
fresh broccoli (I've always used the frozen pre-cut ones)
1 Safeway garlic Alfredo sauce & 1 Bertoli roasted garlic alfredo sauce (I usually use 2x Bertoli Mushroom Alfredo)
The only thing that wasn't changed was that I used Fettuccine noodles.

Hope it turns out good.

Edit: finished results


Turned out pretty good.

You can make your own Alfredo sauce pretty easily. Really if you want it as basic as possible you can just mix milk and cheese (Parmesan or even cream cheese), you can even throw in some mozzarella, a little salt and pepper, and heat it to boiling. If you really want some flavor, pour in some bacon grease too.

Real Mac N Cheese - NWR's WorldWide Test Kitchen
« Reply #374 on: September 19, 2014, 05:18:04 PM »
Real Mac n Cheese


(none of that boxed Kraft crap in my house)



Ingredients:

Macaroni Noodles
Cheese - Cheddar mostly, shredded or cubed block, whatever blend you like
1 egg
Milk
Butter (I used Country Crock Spread)
Salt
Pepper
Paprika
Breadcrumbs (optional)

Step 0: Preheat oven to 375o
Step 1: Boil noodles in salted water. Noodles should have a nice flavor plain (if not add salt in w/ step 3).
Step 2: drain noodles and place them in oven safe container (I used a glass dish)
Step 3: Several scoops of butter mixed into noodles
Step 4: Crack egg, pepper, and pour a little milk into noodles and mix
Step 5: add several handfuls of cheese and mix into noodles
Step 6: add one more layer of cheese on top and sprinkle a generous coating of Paprika (breadcrumbs too if you want) on top of that


Step 7: Place in preheated oven, covered, for about 30-35 minutes, till cheese is all bubbly and melted - a crust should be forming around the edge.
check on it around 20-25 minutes (no stirring needed)

Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving (cheese is piping hot).
I like to top it off with a little sprinkle of pepper before I eat. and enjoy



edit: More Detail as requested
Quote
Macaroni Noodles (enough to fill whatever dish you are using - I used a 12x12 or 10x10 glass dish)
Cheese - Cheddar mostly, shredded or cubed block, whatever blend you like (I used about 4 medium handfuls of shredded cheddar and 2 small handfuls of a blend since I ran out of Cheddar - if you like it extra cheesy like me, that's plenty of cheese. you can add more or less to your liking)
1 egg (crack it right in)
Milk (add a little more than a splash, like you were making scrambled eggs)
Butter (I used Country Crock Spread - 1/4 to 1/2 a stick worth, double down if you're not using milk)
Salt (like you would for any boiled noodle you want flavored - if you didn't add enough during the boil, just add more when you mix in the milk, butter, egg, cheese)
Pepper (you can add this when you mix milk, butter, etc, but I also like to put some on top just before eating)
Paprika (a light coating across the top)
Breadcrumbs (optional - also a light coating across the top)
