Hey everybody,
 
I am sure that you have had this topic before probably.  But what is your favorite thing to cook?
 
I find I like making lazagna.  It is an all day afair for me becaus I make it from scratch.  Also I love to do tacos.  It is fun to chop up the stuff.  Though eating it is the best part. 
 
Yesterday I baked a turkey.  With all the fixings.  Sweet potatoes, stuffing and other things.  Of course the cranberry sauce.  We will eat that for a few days, but as not to get bored with it, I think I will make bean soup today.  We had a ham last week with a bone in it.  So that should give it great flavor.
 
Let us know what you enjoy cooking, and eating too.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hello Karen! We so appreciate you filling in for Chutz while she is gone. We all wish we could have gone with her.

I really enjoy cooking on the grill, and probably my favorite thing to cook, is a Rack of Lamb or a delicious Fillet Minion. Just about anything on the grill is good for me. Also we just bought some Salmon, and will do the Cedar Plank thing with it, as it is also one of our favorites.

That Ham Bone combined with a couple of smoked ham hocks and navy beans, slow cooked all day with onions and a few carrots, and then turn up the heat at the end to get it boiling and then add some bisquick dumplings to it, then when ready surve with hot fresh corn bread. Now you got yourself a meal fit for a king!

Your Roasted Turkey sounds good, do you make bread dressing with the giblets, and meat? ( I love chopped up gizzards and hearts in it, but skip the liver!) Also the left over turkey can be ground up and add Mayo and pickle rellish and all the other stuff, makes great Turkey salad for sandwiches. Anyway, I like turkey over chicken and sounds like you had a ThankGiving meal in February!

I like buying bulk Ribeye and then having them slice it about an inch or so thick and they put them on the grill! T-bones use my favorite, but boy it is had to beat a nice cooked Ribeye steak, unless you can aford Fillet Minion! I do splurge and have them once in awhile! I like to cook for Christmas one year I brought myself a Show-Time Rotisserie & BBQ as a Christmas Present to myself! I used to use it all the time, I need to get it out and start using it again, it was great for chicken and ribs! I also love smoking stuff on my smoker, I make some really good Teriyaki beef Jerky. I could go on and on!
Good Topic Karen!

Whitebeard,

I use to smoke jerky and fish on a smoker. I still have it, but it has been years since I have smoked anything. One year, our power went out for days and I had 17 pounds of bluegill fillets in the freezer. I didn't want them to go to waste so I smoked them all. Talk about some good smoked fish. Though I would have rather had it battered and fried up, but it was good.

We bought a quarter of a beef from a friend of ours this fall and it has been so good. Really much better than what I can buy in the stores. I have had lots of tbones and some fillet minion too. Still have some tbones left.

I didn't make my beans today. Will probably do it tomorrow. Those dumplings sound really good. I had a friend that use to put homemade noodles in her bean soup. I forgot to get carrots today. I will have to do that tomorrow before I start the soup.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Hi all...

Karen - thanks for starting this topic tongue Now you've all made my hungry!! Everything you guys mentioned sounds really, really good.

I cook if I "have" to... I am a pretty decent cook.... and specialize in most of the kid-friendly meals. I also grew up in an Italian home and make a good sauce, etc.

But, truth be told, I hate to cook. I know some find it relaxing (my husband, thank goodness - or our kids might not get too many home-cooked meals). But I'd much rather do just about anything, including cleaning, than cooking!!!

(But I do love to eat!!)

I have a major sweet tooth. Being in college, I don't cook often, but I love making chocolate chip cookies! There is nothing like fresh cookies! Yum!

I don't mind cooking, but I hate to clean it up when I'm done!

My favorite meal to make right now are BBQ Ribs, slow roasted in the oven until they are almost falling off the bones and then finish them up on the grill for flavor. With my fatigue and pain lately, I've gone from being a Mom who does not believe in boxed "food" to one who relies a bit too much on hamburger helper, but what can you do? At least my family doesn't complain, but I feel guilty about it.

I also love to use my crock pot lately, cooking a pot roast with spices like cumin, garlic, onion, oregano and then shred it and serve with tortillas and taco fixings.

Stroghanoff is another popular dish in our house.

To me, not much beats a good quality steak cooked on the grill and served with baked potato!

I like to cook meatloaf, as it's simple for me, hardest part is getting everything together and if I make a list that helps me to remember what to put in, as I've been forgetting more lately.
My favorite cookie recipe is Honey Lemon cookies, but hubby and daughter didn't want them this year, but I might make them anyways...
and the best pie is the Blueberry pie from Wholefoods.

thanks for this topic

I have not had a mess of fresh fried bluegills in many many years! As a young child our family live in Wisconsin, and we used to go fishing allot. My dad always wanted to fish for the "big ones" my mother loved the bluegills, cut the heads off and clean and scale them and fry them in a pan with the tails on, fry them crispy and eat the tails and all. I just did not like all the little bones, in them! I never had them smoked though. You know my youngest daughter lives on a little hobby farm up in Minnesota ( she is a nurse at Mayo Clinic) anyway a few years back her husbands uncle brought her a baby pig for her birthday, well they named him Wilbur and fattened him up and then when he got big an kind of mean, they took him to the butcher! He made the best smoked bacon and smoked pork chops, he was a tasty pig, we had him for Easter it will be two years ago this easter. I keep telling them if they ever want to raise anothe pig to let me know I would go halfs in on everything. Right now they have sheep and chickens, and she supplies everyone on her unit with fresh eggs!

Chart I have not made a meat loaf in along time! it so sounds good I think I might make one this week, I alway make mine with a plum/tomato sauce glaze to put on top of it and keep enough out for dipping the meat in it! I love left over cold meat loaf sandwiches!
