I got a tea advent calendar this year, which has been pretty interesting. You get a sachet of leaves each day, enough to make a couple decent cups; It's been mostly herbal teas and blacks, but there have been a couple of stand-outs like a green tea that tasted of strawberries and cream.

I've been drinking a lot of chamomile tea lately, to help me calm down, since the black tea I usually drink makes me a bit restless sometimes. I'm not sure if it actually has this effect, of if it's just placebo, but it seems to do the trick.

Anyone else into soup? Recipe's, thoughts, or techniques?
I've been making lots of sweet potato soups recently. It's pretty cheap, and super tasty. Cutting up the veggies takes a while, but I can make enough at a time to last me a couple days in the fridge. My recipe varies, but usually includes about 2 tbsp olive oil, a couple cups water, a teaspoon salt, and 3 or 4 sweet potatos.

Can we talk about dishes that don't require a lot of effort to cook?
Do you have some tips to make a relatively simple dish taste great, or maybe enhance something that doesn't even need to cooked?
For example, for the most delicious cheese toast ever, try to spread a layer thin or thick, don't be afraid to experiment!
of mayo on a slice of bread should be a really soft type of bread, white farmhouse is perfect. Avoid thin slices then cook on a frying pan with the mayo facing down. While the breads cooks, put the cheese on it so it can melt. Fry until the mayo side is of a golden color. Do the same for the other slice of bread.

I dunno if anyone else knew about this, most people just build the sandwich and pop it in the oven.

simple tuna pasta sauce:
you will need
-can of tuna
-can of chopped tomato
-some cooking wine, i usually use red wine or vermouth
-olives
-onion
-garlic
-anchovies (optional)

>saute chopped onions and garlic until the onion is translucent

>add can of tuna, break it up with a wooden spoon, let it cook for about 30 seconds
>add tomatoes, olives, and a glug of wine
>optionally, this is where you would add some chopped anchovies. Don't worry, it won't taste too fishy it just adds umami.
>once the alcohol cooks off, taste and season appropriately with salt and pepper.

Speaking of rice: Jasmine rice with seasoning salt. Good for a cheap, low-effort side or if you just want something to snack on that doesn't require a whole lot of attention.

>jasmine rice ($1-2/lb)

>seasoning salt (recommend "Johnny's" brand but generic works too, about $5 for a 1/2lb shaker)

>rinse rice

>good ratio for jasmine is 1 cup water per 1 cup rice
>cook rice in rice cooker
>don't remove lid for 10 minutes once cooker is done to let rice absorb more of the steam
>fluff rice
>serve topped with a couple shakes of seasoning salt

you get a nice hot bowl of rice with a decent kick of flavor

I mean "low effort" is a bit of a definition thing, but I'll share some recipes. I start cooking whenever I am hungry, so my stuff needs to be somewhat fast to make. You can find the recipes online, if it's a chinese sounding dish, I probably got it from the YT channel "chinese cooking demystified":

>snacks (lowest of low effort)

garlic bread (bread + butter + garlic + cheese in oven)
Toast hawaii (toast + ham + slice of pineapple + cheese)
baked chickpeas (toss chickpeas, salt, oil, herbmix, then put in oven until crispy)


>very low effort

Spätzle/Spaetzle (german noodles, best eaten with cheese)
Shaxian peanut noodles

__Oyasumi Pudding__

ingredients
- milk
- semolina
- sugar

seasoning
- cinnamon
- allspice
- essential lavender oil
- salt
- (extra sugar if desired)

Mix milk with sugar and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat and mix in the semolina. Keep stirring slowly. When it forms a nice pulp, add cinnamon, salt, allspice and mix well. If it gets too thick, just add milk. Take off the stove and add 1-3 drops of essential lavender oil (be careful here, this stuff is strong).

Made some cinnamon apple oatmeal today, along with a smoky ham & cheese sandwhich I put in the waffle iron.
The oatmeal is still missing a lil something, much better than last time I tried to make some at least. Hope it's not sugar, trying to avoid it as much as possible nowadays. Looked up some recipes and saw one that added nutmeg and ginger on top of the cinnamon, maybe that can give it that extra kick.

A tip for another oatmeal variation is to fry half an onion finely chopped until soft and translucent, then you cook your oats in the same pan (leaving the onion in) as you normally would except using chicken stock instead of water+salt. Fry an egg while it cooks and serve with that on top. Super hearty.

>>738 again, had another go at that cinapple oats today, added the ginger but didn't have any nutmeg, and instead of adding milk in the bowl when eating exchanged half the cooking water for milk. At first thought it was still kinda bland, then when I was salting my boiled egg I had with it I realized I had totally forgot to add salt. Much better after adding some, imagine if I had put it in during prep instead I would be pretty much satisfied with this version of it.

I love seasoning potatoes with romero and paprika.
Sometimes potatoes do well with a little nutmeg as wel, and of course black pepper.
Black pepper works with everything. Sometimes I like to use oregano too. Or parsley.
Besides that, there's little use of spices in my cooking. I think my food is rather bland. Most people often use either tomato sauce, cream, curry, etc. But I think that's too much. I prefer a somewhat frugal use of condiments generally.

I did! I wanted to wait for a nice rainy night to enjoy it but it took a while to come (the amaretto's almost gone).

It was heavenly, as expected, tastes even better than Italian hot chocolate which I've been trying to find ever since returning to Australia. I used 90% cacao which was very bitter to start with, but the amaretto adds the perfect dash of sweetness.

- mussels
- onions
- carrots
- ready made pasta verde

i don't experiment with food all that much due to time and money constraints, but if i see something that looks good ill try to find a recipe online and make it.

So far my favorite thing that I have made would be nikuman! It takes some preparation and waiting though, and the recipe i followed called for quite a few ingredients to get the specific taste. I also ran into some problems with the dough to meat ratio, and found that it was off and i was often left with more meat than i wanted. this could have been due to me just being bad with portions and making the dough the right way. but the end result really paid off it was delicious! as soon as i finished off that batch i went back to make more

Sort of, mostly with sauces but I got a few loose recipes that take well to it. I vaguely remember a couple that turned out good.

'Fast food' Sauce
>1/4 cup mayo
>1-2 tbsp ketchup
>1-3 tsp mustard
>1 tbsp Relish (Or chopped pickles, I use whatever or just the brine)
>Sprinkle of Salt, Pepper, very light sugar (Like a half pinch), smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar
Mix it up good and let it set for like half an hour to overnight. Good on burgers, fried foods, sandwiches, whatever really. Optionally add finely minced onions, onion power, garlic, or garlic powder.

Bootleg Okonomiyaki
>1 Cup each of flour, dashi stock/water
>1 Egg, beaten
>Chopped green onion or chives
>Minced sushi ginger or ginger with a splash of vinegar

>Do you like experimenting with food?
Yeah. Often after gaining the basic grasp of a recipe, lets say sauteed potatoes, I do it again, but slightly change things, differently sliced, spiced, oil. Other experiments are were I'm missing one ingredient and I try to replace it.
>What are your best creations?
I say fried potato skins. You get leftover potato skins and put them on a pan with a small bit of peanut oil and start adding spices you like, I did a pinch of cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt, to it while stirring them around. I stop cooking when they're crispy. Depending on how much spice I put I can eat them alone, if I put a little, or I can use them as crunchy topping,if I used a lot of powder.
I would never make the recipe alone though. Only when I have leftover potatoes. I like to add them to mashed potatoes I've made
>What were your worst creations?
Another potato recipe. It was simple sauteed potatoes, but I put way to much oil so whenever I bit into them the oil would leak out ruining the taste.I also put cheese on it which got burnt.
I also made a re-fried beans and mayonnaise taco. Everyone thinks its disgusting, but its OK
>Ever got something totally unexpected?
I tried to make beans and cheese, just a can of beans with a package of Mexican cheese dumped in, and it came out more like a chip dip than actual meal.
One time I sliced potatoes to thin while cooking them and made some pseudo chips

Ha, I don't remember exactly, it was some years ago now. I took it apart and looked at the mechanism, I think it had a gear for adjusting with a peg that stopped it from going too small, so I must have broke or bypassed the peg… that or there was some shimming. I also took off the adjustment knob once I got it to a grind size I liked.

A few days in and I've already learned so much.
Lesson 1: It really, really wants fresh beans. At first I was using the now 3 week old beans I had left while waiting for the new ones, and they just didn't quite cut it. When the new beans arrived it was a world of difference.

Lesson 2: Never give up! It took a few days to really get an actual espresso shot, rather than watery strong coffee. Learning all the new variables was overwhelming but I got there in the end. Everything being so manual is such a cool process when you figure it out, it sure takes a while longer but it's so fun!

But oh boy when it all comes together it's amazing. Here's this mornings cappuccino (latte art is still a WIP), tastes great, although I'm finding myself having just double espressos most of the time cause they're so good.

Only tamp with aeropress if you’re trying to make an espresso like Coffee. I like a cup of inverted method coffee using a lighter roast a lot, and never really tried to make “espresso” with it, but recently I’ve found you tamp it, you can make the aeropress make something kinda like espresso. Without tamping it’s impossible.
