i've got some frozen salmon fillets, never made any myself before. what do you recommend I put on them/best way to prepare?
pic related, it's what i've got here, instructions say oven at 145 F
Any Steak 'n Shake fans here?
hey /ck/, im new at cooking and am looking to try making eggplant parm.
the thing is my friend gave me a big bag of frozen eggplant thats been cut into smaller pieces, not slices. all the recipes i find are for eggplant slices.
do you guys have any idea how i would go about making it with the eggplant i have? do i have to bread them first? should i thaw it before cooking it? some of the recipes say to layer the eggplant, how would i do that with bite sized pieces?
i know some of these questions are probably dumb, but any advice would be appreciated.
I bought some pasata today, tried it on toast with some garlic and cheese on top
it was absolutely disgusting
what should I use pasata for?
This is fuckin bullshit. OJ was not found innocent. He was just not proven guilty guilty.
Alright /ck/, let's try to make a curry. Some sort of jalfrezi thing maybe, wish me luck.
This is mostly cumin and coriander, along with a bit of cinnamon, pepper, mustard seed and celery seed.
Clockwise from the top:
salt and failed attempt to grind chilli flakes
fresh chillies instead
The burnt on residue adds flavour.
I bought this beef tenderloin and I just finished feeling it up here at home.
Some pieces of the fat were solid and I could snap them in pieces.
What's up with that?

I still buy a box of these a few times every year. I'm 45yo.
How's that diet going, /ck/? What's the best way or method to eating less while feeling satisfied?
Before you shoo me away to /fit/, this is not about gains or health. In the spirit of pic related, how does one go about "enjoying" food without eating 10 servings of it every time you sit down?
Eat slowly. Drink a lot of water. Don't gulp it down, just have it on hand always and continuously drink it throughout the day. Pause between bites to drink more water. You might be surprised by how little you actually drink while eating a meal, but maybe that's just me because I realized a while back that I tended to focus on eating everything and then just took a few sips. Eating slower and staying hydrated are two of the most effective things I know.
I had to come to grips with this one when I hit middle age and becoming a fatshit happened to me slowly over several years. Breaking my patterns of enjoying food were impossible so I needed to find something other than eating myself to death or becoming a monk.
I did start exercising on a regular basis, but that was just to keep things moving along (and it sucked at first). Exercise won't help you burn off a rich diet unless you labor like fuck for hours a day.
To me counting calories was unsatisfying and drained the joy from life. So instead I identified the most calorie rich foods I likes and made them once in a while foods. This included fried foods, meat and dairy. Left with beans, olive/peanut oil, vegetables and grains (in moderation, because you can be a fatshit eating mostly grains) I figured out what the fuck I would eat on a day to day basis.
It turned out to be mostly Asian (especially south) and Mediterranean dishes that leaned vegan friendly most of the time. Then whatever I felt I was missing once or twice a week to round things out. I dropped 60lbs, got off cholesterol meds and have stayed this way for nearly five years. Did have to re-learn how to cook, but that only took half a year or so.
Filling up on well seasoned/spiced dishes loaded with vegetable fiber makes it hard to miss food loaded with meat/butter/cheese very often.
I've replaced solid breakfast with an 80 calorie miso soup, normal lunch and veg+small amount of chicken/beef Monday to Friday. Normal weekend. Losing a kilo per week without giving up alcohol.
Hey co/ck/s what do you guys drink while shitposting?
I really didn't want to start my own thread, but I didn't see any other "Dinner, /ck/?" threads. So anyway,
What are you having for dinner?
I made okonomiyaki, because it's easy and uses ingredients I usually have.
(Inb4 weeb, it's hard to live in NorCal and NOT eat lots of asian and weeb food.)
>food or snack that has been in the pantry forever
>mom: "I NEEDED THAT"
Or when you're not allowed to eat something and then they let it spoil
I fucking hate people
>get a bit hungry
>"can I eat on of your bananas?"
>"sorry i'm using those for banana bread soon"
>a week passes
>"hey mom how was that banana bread?"
>"i didn't make any banana bread...?"
>bananas still on the counter

À good lunch.
the only person i ever saw eat those was in elementary school and he didn't speak english. do they just taste like watery hot dogs?
replace twinkies with pickled veg and it would be okay i guess.
I'm planning a clambake for the end of the term. Has anyone here done one before?
I've done frogmore stew several times before. It's really good for large crowds, I'd skip out on potatoes if the recipe you plan on using calls for them. The corn is normally enough for a non-seafood side.
Just moved in to a studio apartment. I'll be living on my own for the first time in my life and was trying to think of some simple, low maintenance meals I can cook up at home.
I've got rice, beans, and eggs at the moment (literally just moved yesterday).
What are some other essentials that I'm missing?
Any particular spices you would recommend?
Anyone else here too stupid for cooking?
I can't remember fucking SHIT about all the different terms and techniques used in cooking. It makes it impossible to cook. I have to keep my laptop open with a glossary of terms whenever I read a recipe and I get distracted.
How am I supposed to remember all this stuff?
I'm too fucking dumb
Pic related, I can't remember this shit. I'm sure there are other terms I can't remember too.
My only problem with cooking is that I haven't quite mastered measuring with my eyes. I fucked up some boxed sides by adding too much water. Used drinking cups to measure liquid. Feels bad man.
