I usually cook without a recipe, trying to utilize the things I find in my kitchen as well as possible.

>What are your best creations?


poor guys super fast salad sushi
- get salad leaf
- put rice and sesame seeds on top
- add random vegetables (pickled stuff works well) and soy sauce
- roll up and enjoy immediately
- prepare next one while chewing

mussel with vegetable in pan
- cook potatoes (in a pan) or rice with the mussels and some oil
- add vegetables like onion, garlic, carrots …
- season with black pepper, salt, oregano, …
- add cashews

>What were your worst creations?

I once fucked up my usual pan of stuff with super salty Chinese black beans. Also no one wanted to try my Kimchi, because I added way to much garlic and chili.

>Ever got something totally unexpected?

Blue curacao combined with grape juice tastes like old fashioned candy.

I love experimenting with food, but I also hate wasting it. Sadly that is usually the case. Especially when trying to come up with new baked goods.

Cheese and cheese based sauces work surprisingly well with chicken. Meat is pretty hard to make inedible though, for me at least.

Don't boil canned tuna, it's horrible. Cheap, flour based "sausages" also aren't good for frying on a pan.

Some time ago I made pancakes for the first time. I started off with a ratio from a recipe (1/3 glass of flour, 2/3 glass of milk, 1 egg), then adjusted as I were making the pancakes. Here is what I found out:
More liquid or less flour makes the batter less viscous (more runny) and so you can make thinner pancakes by tipping the pan. Less liquid or more flour makes batter the opposite - viscous, harder to spread, and therefore thicker, denser pancake.
Eggs contribute to "structural integrity" of pancakes. They keep the pancakes together, give them elasticity, and prevent them from crumbling or falling apart.

I tried doing an extreme "pancake" today by adding a little milk and flour to 3 eggs. Essentially scrambled eggs but with a bit of flour. After frying, it turned out very thick and resembled raw dough (even though it was cooked). I could pick up the whole "meal" with a spoon. I got myself scrambled eggs (with some fried onions and cheese) on a stick. It was very filling but a bit tiring after the first few bites.

If you have some tomatoes and dried-up bread lying around, cut up the tomatoes and toss them on a frying pan. Crush the bread into bite-size chunks and also toss them on the pan once the tomatoes release water. The bread will absorb tomato water and soften. Tastes surprisingly well, it has the chewy texture of bread and umami flavour of tomatoes. Works well with eggs too.

Eating food while making food is the best because you know exaclty when to stop and never make too much.

>Do you like experimenting with food?
Yeah all the time. I actually run a cooking show b/c I do so much fun stuff in the kitchen.
>What are your best creations?
Multi-generational chicken sandwich. Stove-top cooked chicken breast, fried egg, some turkey meat, peanut butter, and kale on an uncooked bagel.
>What were your worst creations?
Fruit smoothie where I added tomatoes b/c they're a fruit.
>Ever got something totally unexpected?
Chopped up hotdogs mixed with honey mustard and jam. Actually turned out really good.

It's mostly improvisation when I cook for myself, and have a hard time following a recipe without diverging from it. I did some horrendous things at the beginning but it's very rare now I fuck up to the point I have to waste food. Maybe it's because of my lack of discipline and love for creativity but I also hate to waste food and to eat the same thing each meals.

For example, I had half a bottle of broccoli soup. I found it rather bland and didn't feel like trying anything with the oven (potaoes are baking right now anyway). So I poured the soup in a pan, took one of those unsweetened soy yogurt and used it as cream, put the remaining of a bag of grated cheese, and some spices to add taste and colors (paprika, cumin, pepper). At the end I had a pretty balanced meal taste-wise with enough texture (the soup wasn't perfectly mixed). That's pretty tame, but still I got something good out of three boring elements.

It has to do with pancake too. I don't remember the process, but it involved water, flour, chocolate and it ended in an awful mess of lumps, still liquid dough with burn parts, bubbles and no taste at all.

I'll be glad to hear about unexpected ways to cook leftover

The other day I improvised with some stuff I had around, and I called it a "nest". It was a bed of alfafa sprouts, with slices of jicama and sunflower seeds and also sesame seeds. And some vinagrette made with ginger root slices and tangerine juice. It was tasty.
Sorry if the names of the plants are in spanish, I couldn't find english words for them.

I experimented on accident a while back, I was doing some soldering work, and then I had a break with lunch and a sandwich. I forgot that I had been cleaning my soldering tools above my desk without any surface protector, and there was a small layer of solder lead, flaky and brittle, small pieces of solder lead. I can even check the tin / lead ratio. 60/40 it was. Ate about half the sandwich before I realized what I had done. It was all flaky on the underside because I had laid it down before I ate the first sandwhich.

Woah. I hear that that's really not good. You might want to talk to a medical pro, if you haven't already.

I've kinda been putting it off. Figured if I didn't notice any symptoms I might as well be fine. But lately I've been suspecting that the symptoms make the symptoms unnoticeable to myself. So maybe I'll check myself in to the doctor soon. It would explain some things.

Thanks for the support sushiroll.

Essentially it has felt like I was trembling under the pressure of something pushing down on me that's been growing in strength, my body falters and my shape contorts. I have no real knowledge of what I actually look like. But I have gained some relief in taking only cold showers, and to stop using shower soap. I simply rinse off in cold water, and it feels refreshing as I don't know what. Gets the blood pumping good, and shakes all the fears off your back. You can stand proud, after proving your will stronger than the temperature of the water.

Before I stopped using body wash I was very frail, I was sick at least once every other month, feeling just sapped of all my thunder, snot would drip continuesly for months, once had a cough that held so long I would start coughing blood in my phlegm. I suffered from horrible suffering tremors in my legs, RLS it is called and should never be looked down upon.
I was suffering every night and I just didn't have the energy to go anywhere, I didn't have the energy to give away to anything but the bare essentials.
In a position without choice but to wake up at 05 every morning and make porridge for myself and travel to school. On the funky smelling curious buses, that always dangled across the road so cozily.

I only ever had the energy to deal with one person at a time. If it's not personal enough to need the saying of it alone, it needs not be said.

This didn't leave me with a very good grip on handling groups of friends.

Shit, this was all before the lead though. The lead just left me feeling heavy. That's why I thought of heavy metals, and hence the lead I accidently ate.

Also guys, I believe that there could be quite an amount of schizoids on this site, it's a real thing and it can be used very efficiently.
(It's not the same thing as schizophrenia, look it up. Schizoids are a kind of people too. I am one)

Btw sorry for all the weird blabberrepeaters lately, I really love this place, and every time I have visited I have felt such a comfy joy inside of my heart. It really has saved many days for me, where visiting this site were the single reason I smiled that day. I really love you all, even though I have merely posted some and unasked for. I appreciate every single last one of you.

It is such a healing feeling, that of feeling appreciated.

Also, this post looks like it belongs in /hell/, is there a function to move a wrongly placed post, converted into a thread in the correct board?

Sorry about all this, I'm just a bit crowded inside at the moment, needed to let off a bit of steam. Sorry if it was a bit splashy.

Today I felt extremely lazy and bought a packet of peanuts (salted) and marshmallows for supper. I found that you can push a peanut or two into each marshmallow and make a salty, sweet snack that's better than either of them on their own. Probably not very original, but I enjoyed it.

I'm impressed at how relatable this thread is.

>Do you like experimenting with food?
I love it, not that good at it yet, though.
>What are your best creations?
Something close to a ratatouille; leek, onions, carrots and 2 other things i don't recall right now with pepper, olive oil and a bit of curry (which i bought to see if i liked but didn't so i just pour small amounts everywhere so i don't waste it) in a frying pan half-filled with water.
>What were your worst creations?
None comes to mind but sometimes i mistakenly skips steps when cooking and have to work around it, the results are almost never good.
>Ever got something totally unexpected?
Not really as most of what i've done was for the first time.

>I usually cook without a recipe, trying to utilize the things I find in my kitchen as well as possible.
That is one of the most fun parts in the end, scratching your head thinking how to make the little you have work.

>Essentially scrambled eggs but with a bit of flour.
I learned how to make crêpes with a recipe that uses 3 eggs but is too big for me, when doing half of it you have to decide between 1 or 2 eggs.
1 makes the crêpe very bland.
2 tastes too much like egg, it's like i'm eating a pancake and it's just like you said "very filling but a bit tiring after the first few bites".
I worked around that so it's fine now but the experience was awesome. Seeing how much one single egg can change so much the final product is fascinating.

>What were your worst creations?
I have too many to count. My style of cooking is throwing any scraps I have into a pot.
Recently I tried to spice up my instant ramen. I had baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, peanuts, salami and milk.
I really like peanuts in ramen and baby spinach or tomatoes by themselves in instant ramen are quite good, but together with milk it makes disgusting dirt-wash water.
I also put a bit of milk into the kettle with water, because I thought that so little wouldn't be as bad as brewing milk in a kettle. It shot out all over my laptop.
