The Flood Cookbook!

We all like to eat. We all like to invent and experiment with recipies. Share your own creations, or those you really enjoy, here. [b]Romatic Hot Cocoa[/b] - An easy way to impress a date with mad cooking skillz [i]From the Hershey's cookbook (some of it, at least)[/i] This'll make enough for medium portions for two people. Mix up: 3 tablespoons of sugar (granulated) 2 tablespoons cocoa a dash of salt (it brings out the sweetness of sweet things) in a medium sauce pan After you get that mixed up a bit, grab 1/4 cup of HOT water and throw that in there. The hot water will help dissolve everything together faster than cold water. Right after you put the water in there (you don't have to stir it up first), put it on the stove on medium to medium-high heat. Bring that to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. I reccomend using a wisk, but whatever you have is cool. The boiling blends everything together and makes it taste awesome. After the 2 minutes of boiling, get 1 1/2 cups of milk, 2% or higher is best. Throw that in the pot with the other stuff. Start heating it all up again (the milk will cool it off), but [b]do not boil[/b]. Boiling is not milk's friend. After you add the milk, or while the hot cocoa is heating up, add some vanilla extract. Add, maybe a half or quarter tablespoon. It's for taste, and it wasn't in the original recipe, and I don't measure, so go with what tastes good. Make sure to add the vanilla after the boiling, or it will evaporate. Beating the mixure with your wisk (or ever rotary beaters, if you like) during the final heating process wouldn't hurt. If you beat it a great deal just before you put it in the mugs, it gives it a pretty foamy look. After you get it in the mugs, have a ball. You could put some mini marshmellows in there, big marshmellows, marshmellow whip, maybe, to be romantic, some cinnimon sticks. Okay, time for the optional spices. This recipe is very flexible. Add any of the following things in with the sugar/cocoa/salt at the begining. Some tasty things to just mix it up [u]Cinnimon[/u] - Gives it a nice spice, good aroma. Goes with whatever [u]Nutmeg[/u] - Pretty much the same as cinnimon. It can go with cinnimon [u]Cloves[/u] - Pretty much the same as the other two. It can go with the other two. [u]Cheyenne[/u] - Makes it spicy (like, hot spicy, not the festive sort), brings out the chocolate flavor. Use a VERY small amount. Like, a quater of a small pinch, and that even gives it some spicy flavor. It's for the daring. use by itself, though maybe with Cinnimon. [u]Almond extract[/u] - Gives it an intesting flavor. Use if you like Almond extract. I like it myself. It could probably go with the first three, but I believe is it best enjoyed alone. Anyways, have fun with it.

  • Sorry to bump and whatnot, but I like this idea and I have a concept that makes burgers amazing. When making burgers on a grill or stove, do the following -When first making the pattie mixture, handle the meat AS LITTE as possible. -Season only with salt and pepper -During grilling DO NOT SMASH THE MEAT!!!! -Flip the burger only ONCE. And the burger that comes out will be the best that you have ever eaten.

What sort of vinaigrette?[/quote] I'm not sure, I actually think it is some sort of bbq rub or something, my bad.[/quote] Man, whatever. It sounds like it would kick meat into the next dimension with awesome flavor.

  • Well Ragu is what we normally use in my house.And I don't really go by measurements to be honest.Measurements are more important in baking than cooking because it's much more delicate.With cooking it's more by taste than actual measurements.*Culinary Operations FTW*

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] mastergrunt44 [b][u]MasterGrunt44's Fricase de Puerco[/u][/b](yes it's in spanish,live with it) Cut pork into cubes Once cut,season with Sazon Goya and some salt along with some minced garlic(the ones that come in the little jars already cut,y'know) Place into a pot with some oil and lightly brown the meat. Once it's lightly browned,place some water,cut onion,and a few spoons of tomato sauce( I use Ragu since that's what I normally have) Turn down the heat to low and let it slow cook for a bit,stirring ocassionally. After a few minutes check your sauce to see if it needs more seasoning. After what's close to 20 minutes turn off the heat and see if it's ready.(You'll know when it is,trust me) Serve with rice and potatoes(if you want) Enjoy![/quote] Possibly amounts, instead of "some", if you have them? By tomatoe sauce, do you mean an itallian-like seasoned sauce? Ragu is is not tomatoe sauce, since it is always flavored with salt and spices and whatnot.

Get some captain morgan's parrot bay, peach flavor is the best. It's a very sweet rum, good for dates (not date -blam!-...). [Edited on 8/11/2006]
