Default Some of the better things I have made these past few weeks.

Fried eggs inside bell peppers topped with avocado.


slice the bell peppers to about 1/2 inch or 3/4" depending on the size of eggs you are using, Very important you make nice even cuts otherwise you will get leakage, clean out the pife and seeds from each ring.
Add whatever high temp cooking oil you wish (I use light olive oil) but canola is fine too, add a bit to a nonstick pan and put on medium- high heat, when the pan is nice and hot add your peppers and cook for 10 seconds or so, now its time to drop your eggs, use the freshest eggs you can get (AA is best) this is important because the whites of fresh eggs are thicker and will resist leaking out of the pepper while they cook.
Have a spatula handy to apply 5-10 seconds of light pressure on the pepper rings after you add the eggs to ensure they are sealed in. Flip in about 30-40 seconds and cook for 10 more seconds on the opposite side.
Ill leave it up to you to use garnishes of your choice, salsa, avocado etc etc

oven roasted salmon topped with shitake mushrooms, with avacodos and tomato mozzarella salad.


lemon
tomato (preferably heirloom)
Fresh mozzarella cheese, I like Bel Gioioso
basil
EVOO and balsamic
6-8oz salmon filet
salt and pepper.
3-4 large shitake mushrooms
1 clove of garlic
(salmon)
pre heat oven to 400
First line a shallow baking pan with foil, cut 2 thin slices of lemon and place right next to eachother to act as a bed for the filet, brush the salmon with EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then place it on the lemons on the baking tray. Bake for 4-6 mins to desired "done ness".

(mushrooms)
mince up your clove of garlic, heat up a pan with a bit of light olive oil and a tad of butter, add garlic and let simmer while you are prepping your shrooms.
remove stems from shrooms, cut the caps into thin slices and add to pan with the garlic, oil and butter.
cook for about 3-4 mins on med heat, stirring often.


Seared Ahi tuna on a radish-cucumber slaw with lychee and orange vinaigrette

6-8oz ahi tuna steak (the fresher the better/ do the smell test)
4-5 radishes
3 lychee fruits
1 large orange
1 large cucumber
Light olive oil
black and white sesame seeds
White balsamic vinegar
honey
hot chili oil or cayenne pepper

(ahi)
Because the fish is going to be lightly seared and still pretty raw on the inside it is VERY important to use the freshest stuff you can get, do not use frozen or you might run the risk of getting sick.
Lightly brush the steak with a high temp cooking oil (light olive oil, canola or coconut oil), in a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of each black and white sesame seeds, salt and pepper, and spread onto a larger plate or piece of parchment paper, take the steak and roll it around to completely coat it with the mixture

Lightly brush a non stick pan with high temp oil and bring up to high heat, to test if its ready, flick a little water in it to see if it sizzles, for the searing you will need it to be on high heat, make sure you have your hood fan on high as the seeds crusting the outside of the steak can make a good amount of smoke.
quickly cook each side for about a 1min -1 1/2 mins.

(Veggies)
To get the fancy marks on the cucumber slices just use a fork to make long gouges/ scrapes in it long ways before you slice.
Julienne the cucumber and radishes an place into a bowl.

(spicy orange & lychee vinaigrette)
remove the skin from the lychees and remove the seed, mash them up and place in a small pot or sauce pan with the juice from 1/2 an orange, 1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar and a dash of cayenne pepper or chili pepper oil and 1 tablespoon of honey.
simmer this on low heat for about 5 mins, strain and add most of it to your sliced veggies, leave about a tablespoon or so to drizzle over your fish if you choose or serve on the side as a dipping sauce, however I generally like my ahi unsauced.
enjoy.

Watermelon with blackberries, feta cheese and balsamic vinegar.



Pretty basic, I don't think this needs much of an explanation, I know balsamic and watermelon sound like an odd combo but it actually makes the watermelon taste sweeter.


Heirloom tomatos with mozzarella, peaches, mashed black berries, basil drizzled with EVOO and fig infused balsamic vinegar


Salmon on top of sliced oven roasted sweet potatoes and sauteed valida onions w/ leftovers tomato mozzarella salad.




leftover buffalo patty w shitake mushrooms on a spinach salad.




Grilled chicken breast with roasted brussel sprouts and tomato cucumber salad with crumbled feta. (LAZY PRESENTATION)





Sorbet made by blending frozen watermelon chunks with plain greek yogurt, peaches, blue berries and raspberries, topped with bee pollen.




Anyone else care to share some "homemade" food porn? (Ill continue adding to the recipes/ techniques as I get time)

I'm trying that watermelon/blackberry/balsamic/feta sounds very interesting and easy.

Everything looks delicious. I have nothing to add except burgers, steaks, chicken and brats, haha.

If you really want to know how to cook and prep food, I highly recommend watching Good Eats on netflix, its entertaining unlike other cooking shows and it teaches you ALOT!

Blackend swordfish with caprese salad made with home grown heirloom tomatoes and basil.




My patio tomato grow op.





Salmon cooked extra rare with crispy skin on a bed of shitake shrooms with sushi nori squares for making little pouches of salmon & mushroom goodness as you eat.

(Key to crispy skin- scale the skin with a knife, rinse, pat dry, apply coarse sea salt, wait 5-10min for salt to pull out more moisture, lightly brush salt off with a paper towel, cook)





Basic traditional breakfast
two over easy eggs, home grown tomato, sprouted grain ezekal toast with left over shrooms





Seared ahi tuna on top of a spring mix salad sprinkled with fresh grated ginger




Feeling adventurous. Was so salty I could almost feel my blood pressure spike afterward

Yesterdays breakfast
2 eggs+ cup or so of eggwhites scrambled with minced garlic, chopped shallots and jalapenos. Avocado toast, home grown black krim tomatoes. strawberries and a glass of hand squeezed OJ.




Dumplings for lunch!

Pork and radish dumplings from 888 market off 119th and 69 hwy. Made in store and incredibly delicious, best dumplings I have had in my life by a long shot. $6 bucks for 24 too! boil for 15 mins in salted water.



sauce
1 1/2 oz reduced sodium soysauce, 1 1/2 oz water the dumplings were boiled in, a dash of rice vinegar, dash of toasted sesame oil. minced garlic, grated ginger, chopped green onions.





End result. SEX!
seriously if you don't try this sometime, you are losing at life. So easy and cheap, but the results are incredible. Thanks WRXFX for this recommendation and instructions on DIY sauce.

turkey meatballs




1 pound of lean ground turkey
1 egg
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp pepper

mash together and make balls

You can add salt if you want, but turkey is pretty high in sodium as it is.

line pan with foil, use a paper towel or brush to coat with olive oil, bake for about 15min at 375.

first time messing with ground turkey, turned out well, will make again for sure!

I eat 4-5 times a day though. These are just things I make when I have free time and feel like making something fancy.

After a few months of doing this 4-5 small meals a day with good protein/carb/fat ratios. I have really leaned out and feel pretty awesome. I never feel like I am starving.

I enjoy cooking at home. I even started a blog because people always asked for my recipes (it's stickied at the top). I haven't posted in that blog for a while due to time.

I discovered Kangaroo and it was incredible. Decided to make kangaroo lettuce wraps for din din. It can be found at Sprouts market, a bit more expensive than beef, $8/LB. but the flavor profile is much more complex, hint of gamey-ness but almost has a nutty, earthy flavor to it. I have had elk, bear, caribou, mountain lion, alligator, rattle snake, but this is by far my favorite.


Another thing about kangaroo is its awesome calorie/protein ratio. 25grms for 110 calories, that's better than chicken breast!


I cooked up a tiny bit on its own to decide how to season it and what would compliment it. Then decided to make lettuce wraps with it.
Because it is so lean it cooks very quickly, so take that in mind if you decide to give it a go.
I first browned the meat removed from the pan and set it aside, using the same pan I sautéed up minced white shrooms, bean sprouts, 2 minced red jalapeño peppers, garlic, Braggs liquid aminos, a tiny bit of fish sauce and a dash of sesame seed oil. Then added the meat back in and added the chopped green onions last right before taking it off so the mixture would still have some crunch.

Placed the mixture onto my lettuce leaves topped with grated radish and drizzled a bit of a Thai peanut sauce over them.





I am pretty sure this is the absolute best thing I have ever made in my life so far, I'm going to be eating alot more kangaroo. I recommend anyone and everyone to give it a try. Bonzisushi was right, kangaroo kicks ass!

How do you cook all that stuff on an electric stove? One of the reasons I have not cooked as much as I like here at home is because we had an electric range.

We just upgraded to gas and I am happy to finally begin cooking more regularly.

The bell pepper with egg looks good. My wife doesn't like bell peppers though, so that one might be just for me.

Also, a lot is two words, not one, not sure if you knew that or not.

My house is all electric, but trick is to use high quality cookware and allowing pans to fully heat up before starting.
I do utilize the broiler in my oven quite a bit if I want some char.

Alot, a lot ? Meh, I'm not perfect.
