The salsa will probably taste too tomatoey if you eat it the same day you made it. Salsa needs some time to reach its true final boss form. But good luck

THAT LOOKS SO GOOD

Thanks!! ;o; I also made you guys a shepherd's pie (the other day lol). :-)


I missed this till now, I don't know how. Technically this is a cottage pie. A shepherd's pie is made with lamb. Too much Food Network and being anal made me tell you that >_< It looks delicious!

That was absolutely delicious. I am definitely doing it again and I am SO FREAKING FULL.  No pictures cause I am not used to taking pictures of my food and I was hungry so I just ate OK?!

There are four of us, so I doubled your recipe. I let the chicken marinade in the adobo/lime/etc sauce for a bit and then dumped it all (except the bacon) into a slow cooker. Because I am lazy.  I added a tbsp of bacon grease to give it a sort of cooked with bacon flavor. Let that cook on high for four hours.  I wanted crispy bacon just cause I like it crispy, so I fried it up, drained, chopped and used it as a topping. I also made guacamole cause .. well cause I like it and I can.  This was so freaking good. I haven't cooked anything from this thread in forever, and most of the stuff that we posted previously I can't really have a lot of cause I'm trying to lose weight ;9  I need more recipes like this, chop chop  :P  :drsword:

I've only ever really heard people call them potpies.
Don't think I've heard of a cottage pie, makes me think of the cheese.

I didn't know that! Neat! B)

After looking around a bit, it looks like Americans have a bad habit of using "Shepherd's Pie" and "Cottage Pie" interchangeably. ;9

I did, I never knew that dish as anything BUT shepherd's pie until I became obsessed with cooking shows lol. I think Gordon Ramsey taught me that bit. Him or Alton Brown.

Me and Malson made sushi today~ It was messy, challenging, and really fun! :boe:

First attempt  vs.  third attempt


(The second attempt was with the rice on the outside, and it turned out looking hideous so I didn't take pics ok)

Ingredients: We used imitation crab sticks, cream cheese, and cucumber for all of them. For the first one, we also had avocado and spicy mayo. The avocado ran out by the third roll and the mayo was only used on the first (apparently it was expired ;9).

Cooking the low / medium grain rice correctly was the most daunting part, but it actually didn't turn out too bad (a rice cooker is probably easier to use). It seemed somewhat undercooked, but we couldn't tell once we got it rolled up.

The rolling part wasn't so bad, either. Covering the sushi roller in some kind of plastic seems to be easier for clean up and moving the roll around, but I'd go with a large zip lock bag next time... We used plastic wrap and it kept sliding all over the place and wasn't on the roller very well. ._. That rice also sticks to your fingers like crazy, so I found it to be a lot easier to have the seaweed on the outside and rice inside. I also found that it was easier to work near a sink (or keep a bowl of water nearby) so you can dampen your hands frequently when handling the sticky rice.

Cutting the sushi was probably the most difficult part because I kept squeezing the poor sushi to death to hold it in place (I'm 2 strong ok). We covered it in plastic wrap before cutting it the first time, but I think this is only really necessary for sushi with rice on the outside. It only made it harder for us to cut through it. By the third roll, Chris and I were holding the ends of the sushi as gently as we could while I cut it - this time, it turned out fairly well. :) I think a better knife would have made the cutting process a lot easier.

This guy seemed to have the easiest method for making the rice in a pot and this video was very helpful for rolling techniques and stuff.
