Hello everyone. I've made this thread due to how much I've flooded the Foodie Thread. The purpose of this thread is to post my own cooking creations. This could be anything, but anything I post in here has to be my own creations, so nothing that anyone else has made. These are my creations. Figured the art thread should have a change of pace.
To add a bit of context, I've enjoyed various cultures of food, and I think my area really speaks for the kinds of food that I like to make. I've lived with Asian and Latino people, so hopefully my creations in the future will further reflect on Asian and Latin cuisine while still being "American." I'm not really opposed to Americanizing foreign foods as long as it still tastes good, so you'll see creations of mine that would have my own touch. I like authentic Mexican and texmex, so really, I'm a very open person. I was raised to learn to try everything at least once. My openness to various kinds of food will probably show in the foods that I've made on my own time. I've done some professional cooking, but this will probably concentrate on food that I make for myself and friends. Doubt any professional stuff would really show up. I can say that, as far as ingredients go, I really like ginger, turmeric, cumin, cheyenne pepper, avocados, tomato-y stuff, eggs, various peppers, and plenty of black pepper. Basically, peppers will be a common ingrediant, and I treat sriracha like it's ketchup, though I've been toning down on the spice for my body's sake.
So, this may not be like super beautiful restaurant level, but it will certainly look good and be tasty.
I'll start with today's meal: texmex style crunchy tacos, or chingaderas.
I made a taco meat for this, which included the following all chopped:
Various peppers including sweet, habanero, jalapeno, and serrano
The meat used was a couple of grounded deer patties. Literally deer.
I can't say the amounts used, because I never measured lol I put things in until it tasted good enough for my pallet. A little water was also used to make sure that it stayed moist, but I used a fair amount of wine mixed with ketchup to add moisture and let the ingrediants blend into the deer meat. The tacos had the general things for texmex: various grated cheeses (cheddar, sharp, pepper jack), and chopped green onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. I put the cheese on first so the corn shells wouldn't get soggy lol I put sour cream and tobasco on top.
And since I already posted these in the Foodie Thread, I'll just quote them:
Diced garlic gloves
Various assortments of peppers all diced
Some water to add more juice, though I could have added even more water.
Chopped up mushrooms
Cheyenne pepper seasoning
A custom blend seasoning
Reverse style pizza. Sort of inspired off of the Sicilian style:
Sugar's impact on cake.
