As for the corn souffle, you usually need to cook it for a longer period of time (1 - 1/2 hours) in order for it to set. Try checking out ALL RECIPES for any questions or recipes you have questions about. It's been a life savor for my cooking and baking skills!
Ok, that helps on the burgers. I find its a fine line with hamburger, I believe this was 85% because I find anything with a lower fat tastes like shoe leather.

The burgers turned out good, it just took longer. Once I dabbed off the yucky film and put the broiler on, it was fine. The flavor was really good. Now I'll know what to do with the hamburger I use.

The souffle was a gamble. I had compared recipes from ALL RECIPES (great site) and they all had different times. The flavor was good, but next time I will plan on baking longer but I will also drain the corn.

Oooooh Patty, the pulled pork looks delicious. Mouth is watering here!

I made homemade cheese enchiladas. I will never go back to canned sauce again. I made the chili gravy from scratch and it is lot years ahead in taste. It was very easy too. Just make a roux, add spices (chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, salt & pepper) and then add water and let thicken. I didn't like the taste of the sauce to start, so I added some tomato puree, which cut down on the sharpness but still had some heat. I don't know why the beans are purple, but oh well. I can't find good tex-mex in nyc.

I didn't put this in the restaurant thread, because it is not a very good pic, and we eat here so often (it is right behind our house) that it didn't seem that special. I tried something new the other day, a Volcano Roll and it was so good I had to snap a pic with my cell phone.



There was Justin's cucumber roll, avocado roll, and inari.
In the middle was the volcano roll with baked spicy crab and sweet soy on top and my little tamago (egg roll) on the side there.

sushi! aaargh! looks tops.


I had a bee in my bonnet for BBQ Chicken. They're a Korean fried chicken chain, and they fry all they chicken to order. In olive oil. Even though there's a trans fat ban in nyc, I'm sure most places still use soybean oil, something not as healthy as olive oil. I had to wait 15 minutes but it was well worth it. I had the teri-gold wings, which are salty, but so crispy and hot, that you have to be careful not to steam burn yourself. Next time (I get fried chicken cravings when I'm pms-ing!) I'll try the hot wings. I hope this place lasts, 10 wings are $7.95. There's Popeye's, KFC and Kennedy Fried Chicken type place two blocks away and all of those places are much cheaper. Really, it beats all of those places and they can take their heat lamps and shove it.

I made chicken enchilladas recently. Thank goodness we loved them because we ate them for three days.

I haven't done a lot of cooking, but now that the weather's turning I will be. However, tonight I gave it to a hankering for cake... of the cup variety.

Piggies on top for good measure.

Default Pumpkin Cakes

Just made these today to take in to work. Last year, Jello had a recipe for a pumpkin pie made from jello pudding, canned pumpkin and a few other things..This year I mixed it up (with less liquid in the pudding) and slapped it on some moist deluxe chocolate cupcakes and sprinkled little chocolate jimmies on top. So delish!

I had a couple of friends over for some dinner last nite. We started with a buttery California chardonnay and a salad of field greens and radicchio. It was topped with homemade parmesan croutons, feta and fresh balsamic vinegrette.


The main course was a porcini mushroom risotto with a sauce made from a veal stock and cabernet reduction with melted danish bleu cheese drizzled on top. A bottle of robust Australian shiraz accompanied the risotto.


For dessert I made some Ghirardelli chocolate brownies with walnuts in a muffin-top pan. I scooped some French vanilla ice cream into bowls, added the brownie and topped it with some chocolate sauce and white chocolate chips.


After dessert we sat outside to relax with some good single malt scotch and smoked from my Turkish nargileh. (also known as a hookah) It was very nice to have some quality time with my very good friends. Isn't that what life is all about?

Umm, well I think so. Which is why I'm astonished your guests were patient enough to wait while you took such professional looking pictures of all three courses. Didn't it put a damper on the ambience while you focussed, lit and snapped three separate times? Lol

Its a GREAT picture. It's an adorable looking cake but I love the fact it's right next to your keyboard and ready for action immediately after you took a picture. I'm with SVS, it's a 'screen-licker' of a picture!

Do the pictures have to be taken right before the food is consumed? I wasn't aware that was a rule on this thread. (Or that you were the one in charge of rules enforcement) In every other picture on this thread, you can tell that people were just off in the wings with forks at the ready huh? Yeah right. The pictures are of what I made and served. The story is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. As a professional, I do try to take "professional looking" pictures. You can be astonished or not, but I imagine that you won't be because you are too busy trying to be a wise ass. Lol

Well no, but taking them right after it's been consumed could be tricky! Seeing as you were talking about a relaxing evening with friends I just found the whole story, hookah pipe included, amusing.

Not at all, I dont make the rules and I'm not in charge of anything. I am allowed to express my opinion though.

No, but in my humble opinion AnnMarie and AtlantisAK's pictures look a lot more believable and yes, I do believe there were people waiting in the wings for those shots.

Umm, ok, well I'll stop beating around the bush here and tell you flat out that I dont believe you. I made what I thought was a tongue in cheek post to express gentle amusement as I know if I was served food that delicious looking no way would I let it spoil while someone took pictures of it. You seem SO defensive however that my amusement has bubbled over into disbelief. Maybe its my loss that my 'quality time with good friends' is less about light meter readings and focal lengths and more about conversation and good cheer? Lol - maybe not.

No, just stating what I (and others) believe to be true. I've worked plenty of photoshoots and seen just how tricky it is to get good shots of food but if you want to prove me wrong then next time why not take some oh-so-professional pictures of the preparation, the cooking and the friends. If you do that I'll apologise profusely but until then my amusement will continue.

[quote=AnnMarie;953786]I haven't done a lot of cooking, but now that the weather's turning I will be. However, tonight I gave it to a hankering for cake... of the cup variety.

Piggies on top for good measure.


Hey, where is my cupcake? You teaser. Your EVIL
