The Second Flood Cookbook

The Second Flood Cookbook I've long enjoyed looking through the Flood Library. Cool stuff is in there. One of the more awesome works to have been recorded is [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=8172273]Douglas Brown's [u]The Flood Cookbook.[/u][/url] The thread was relatively short lived, with not too many recipes added to the list. That's unfortunate, and so I decided that I would try and start a second one. Same rules as before: Simply share your creations of food that you really enjoy. I don't really intend to sort these out on the front page. Just discuss these as they are posted and have fun with it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [b][u]From the Old Cookbook[/u][/b] [b]1. Romantic Hot Cocoa[/b] - Douglas Brown Romatic Hot Cocoa - 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, in a medium sauce pan. 3 tablespoons of sugar (granulated) 2 tablespoons cocoa a dash of salt (it brings out the sweetness of sweet things) 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 do not boil. 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. [b]2. OMGWTFBBQ Sauce[/b] - mush0225 I don't know the excact measurements, but I put these together to make bbq sauce when making burgers... * Coka Cola * Ketchup * Paprika * Brown sugar * Lemon juice (sometimes) * Soy sauce (sometimes) * Garlic powder (a little goes a long way) * Franks Red Hot sauce (sometimes) * Pepper seeds * Dill weed My friend also puts in this viniagrette stuff, not sure exactly what it is though... [b]3. MasterGrunt44's Fricase de Puerco[/b] - MasterGrunt44 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 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [b]Garlic Guacamole[/b] - squirrel dude Serving Size: Depends on how much you and your friends like Guacamole Ingredients: - 5 avocados - 1 tomato* - Cilantro (however much you like - 1 lime* - 2 cloves of garlic - Salt and Pepper *Another option is to replace these with a can of rotel, if you want to add a little extra kick, and don't want to cut up the juice. Tools: - 1 large bowl - 1 spoon - Optional: Potato masher Instructions - Chop up 5 avocados into thick slices, removing the skins. Pour into bowl. - Dice tomato, removing the top where the stem was, that part's gross. Pour in bowl - Cut lime in half, squeeze lime juice into the bowl. - * Alternatively, pour in a can of Rotel, however much you think is fit, at least 1/2 can. - mince 1 to 2 cloves of garlic, and then pour into bowl. - Begin mixing and mashing the avocado. - Add Salt and pepper. 2 turns of a pepper mill, and 3 turns of a salt mill should be enough. - Dice Cilantro, add to bowl - Mix and mash the avocado and ingredients together again. Do this until satisfied with the consistency of the avocado. Serve and enjoy

  • [b]Tex-Mex Cheeseburger Hamburger Helper/Veveta Cheesy Skillet[/b] This one is easy. Ingredients: - Hamburger Helper/Velveta Cheesy Skillet box - 1/2 lb lean ground beef - 1 can Rotel - Cumin, Salt, Pepper - Bag of "Mexican" 3 cheeses, grated. Tools: - Large Pan - Measuring Cup that can hold at least 2 cups of water - Can Opener Instructions: Basically, you're going to follow the instructions as they are presented on the boxes. Except for these changes. 1. Wash hands and take the ground beef out of the packaging and place it on a cutting board. Season with Cumin, Salt and Pepper. 2. Open up can of rotel, but not entirely. Leave enough for you to move the lid and squeeze out lime and jalepeno juices. - Squeeze these juices into the measure cup, get as much as you can out of there. - Fill up the rest of the measuring cup with water until the amount of liquid equals the amount called for by the recipe (probably about 2 cups) 3. After you have started to brown the ground beef, stir in the remaining tomatoes and green peppers from the Rotel can into the pan. - From here, follow the instructions on the box (Add everything, stir it in, turn down the heat, and let it simmer) 4. Once the liquid is just about gone, sprinkle in a good helping of grated mexican cheese on top of the pan. Stir it an let it melt in. Serve and enjoy a hamburger helper with a little bit more kick. Consider these other additions to the dish: [u]Extra Lime Juice[/u]: A little bit of extra acid. [u]Cilantro and Garlic[/u]: A little bit of extra flavoring to the whole dish. Cilantro will need to be very finely chopped. [Edited on 08.20.2012 4:57 PM PDT]

  • Knew this wouldn't last long. I doubt most of the Flood even cooks for themselves yet. Protip: If you know how, double sided cheeseburgers (putting cheese on both sides) is a ton more satisfying than single pane'd (not even sure if that's the right word) cheeseburgers.

  • Okay, this is off the top of my head, I barely remember this recipe but it was my favorite back when I gamed nonstop for days on end so I guess the Flood might appreciate it. I'm a decent cook, nothing special but my food hasn't ever been a big area where I've received flak, actually it's one of my more praised areas but whatever. What you need: -small can (can't remember the size, it's small though, fits in the palm of your hand, have to use a legit can opener to open it) of Hormel Chili -Pepperjack Cheese chunk (not sliced) -Philadelphia Cream Cheese, don't use -blam!- Roundy's stuff, it's -blam!-. -Cheese Grater -An Oven -Pie Pan ---------- Instructions: Spread the cream cheese (the whole thing) into the bottom of the pie pan. Pour the chili on top and spread evenly. Then, grate the cheese (as much as you like, I just like to be able to evenly coat the top with a single layer of cheese) and cover the chili evenly and until chili is covered. Bake the damn thing at 350F til done. Boom awesome dip, best served with potato chips (wavy for best chip holdage). -------------------------------------------------- Movie Theater Popcorn Need: -Stove -Popcorn Kernels (Orville Redenbacher is the best readily available, kernel does matter. -Oven Mitts -Relatively deep sauce pan with cover -Coconut Oil -Butter -Flavaco (google it, it's the secret to good popcorn) -Salt (some say popcorn salt is better, idgaf and use table) How to: 2 table spoons of Coconut oil into the pan. Put on med-high and let the oil melt (should be solid unless it's already hot). Drop 4 kernels or so into the pan and cover until they all pop. That means the oil is ready. I like to drop a little salt/flavaco/butter in here but you don't have to. Then dump 1/3 to 1/2 popcorn kernels into the thing and cover at a slant so there's a small gap for steam to escape. Shake the pan (wearing mitts) to keep the popcorn moving, wait til only a few pop a second (like microwave) and stop cooking. Take it off and salt/flavaco/butter to your liking. Boom, popcorn at home that isn't terribly dry or microwaved. Sorry if these are really vague, I cook differently every time, just using the basics to help mix things up. Best thing to do is experiment til' it tastes good to you. [Edited on 08.20.2012 4:15 PM PDT]

  • Spaghetti: 1. Boil several cups of water in sauce pan 2. Add several teaspoons of olive/vegetable oil 3. Add uncooked spaghetti noodles Boil spaghetti for 8 minutes, stirring frequently (although the stirring is important, if you don't want sticky spaghetti you have to stir the spaghetti in and out of the water, so that it breaks the surface and gets some olive oil action ('cause oils are hydrophobic and stay on top of the water). Add a bit of salt into the cooking spaghetti for taste (I never taste the salt =/) [Edited on 08.20.2012 4:07 PM PDT]
