Is there anyone out there who likes to cook?
I like to dabble into some cooking myself on occasion. I haven't cooked anything homemade in a long time because of the move, but I can't wait until I get back into it.
I'll share one of my recipes (since I can't find the other one......my "still workin' on it" chili that I haven't memorized yet):
Seasoned Potato Wedges
You need a pan, some foil, potatoes, extra virgin olive oil, shredded cheese, cooked bacon (can be the microwave bacon, which is what I use), steak sauce (A1, 57, or store brands of those) and whatever seasonings you prefer (in this recipe I'll be using cayenne pepper, ground red pepper, sea salt, and black pepper).
First, cut the potatoes (I leave the skin on) into small wedges. Toss them in the foil-lined pan, drizzle some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil for those of you who've never heard of Rachael Ray ) over the 'taters, then lightly sprinkle seasonings on top (for my spicy wedges, I sprinkle, in order, sea salt (optional, sometimes I don't use it), black pepper, red pepper, and cayenne pepper). Put 'em in a preheated 375 oven for 15 minutes (time may vary depending on various circumstances). After 15 minutes, take them out, turn them over, sprinkle more seasoning on the other side (you don't need any more EVOO at this point), and put them back into the oven for 15 more minutes (again, time may vary).
When they're done (I'd stick a fork or something in some of the bigger ones to check and see if they're done), immediately sprinkle shredded cheese on top of the 'taters. Put the wedges into a plate, top with cooked bacon, and drizzle a little bit (don't need much) sauce on top.
I'll warn you if you decide to use my recipe for spicy wedges........have plenty to drink on hand, because they're spicy.
It may be one of the most unoriginal recipes out there, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
I'm mostly a hamburger (cheese, bacon (if available), and sauce (ketchup, BBQ sauce, or steak sauce only) only), chicken nuggets/fingers/tenders, pizza, and mexican foods (beef and cheese tacos, burritos, etc.) person. I hate seafood. I'm picky on what I eat. Oh yeah......I do like certain hot and spicy foods. I like certain kinds of hot sauces and spices.
I do like to do some simple cooking, such as fixing BBQ chicken tenders (simple as in using frozen chicken nuggets or tenders, dipping them in BBQ sauce, and baking them in the oven for 15 or so minutes) and playing around with simple recipes such as sloppy joes and tacos.
I'm open to any recipes, ideas, and suggestions any of you might have.
Until next time, if I can spell it right, "bon appetite."
