I work in the industry and can kinda bake. They are two different beasts, bakers love to measure and like perfection because you HAVE to measure when baking.
People who cook in general are more off their rockers, dash of this pinch of that. Just enough to taste. Lol.
Even in the catering industry usually not always but normally a company does one or the other. Cook or bake
I am normally forced to cook because I can't eat everything I would bake, (the /carbs/,) but while I'm fairly good at both, they are very different beasts.

Pistachio and parmesan crusted chicken breasts, just coat chicken in plain yogurt and finely process parmesan, pistachio and salt, then crumb. Oven bake.

Ok so I have cooked for a while. Ran catering companies and just found this out. If you put %100 honey in water and swirl the honey will go into a honey comb shape!!

Mind blown.

I love to cook...baking to a lesser degree; however I still do bake. I have taken a more health conscious approach to life over the last 2 years and it is interesting making "normal" food into lower calorie healthier versions. Tonight's menu is crispy buffalo chicken tenders and garlic green beans with banana pudding :)

Double post.
I'm the master of double posting and I try to refrain myself, but it happens... often... I normally do pretty good.

Our daughter wanted to cook tonight. Collard greens is what's on the menu. I may be from the great white north, but my roots are as southern as can be. I did the knife work since she's only 6 and my knives are scary sharp. Ingredients... oops, forgot the garlic.

There it is. More than enough to ward off any vampires within a 60 mile radius.

She wanted to try the apple cider vinegar... again... I tried to remind her of last time, but you can't reason with kids...

Boiling away for a minute.

Just mixed up some cornbread. I forgot chipotle peppers in adobo from Walmart, so we're having cornbread with just some sharp Troyer's Lightning Jack inside.

More pics as things progress...

Nothing fancy, but kind grinds.

Just joining this thread. Meant to a while ago. :) Love to cook and bake. And well, “summertime and the living is easy”.
Today is my day off so I’m running around doing stuff (tank water changes and meeting the equine vet/chiropractor for my horse) so I totally threw together this lunch: avocado, tomatoes from my garden, fresh mozzarella cheese, drizzled with some avocado oil (cause one can never get enough avocado!) and everything bagel seasoning. Turned out better than I thought it would!

Redneck chicken parmesan and sauteed zucchini.

Those cheap Walmart breaded chicken chicken patties covered in jarred pasta sauce and mozzarella.

Zucchini sauteed in olive oil with garlic, Italian seasoning mix, extra basil (I love basil!), salt and pepper and parmesan cheese.

Edit: I've created a monster. My son saw me putting extra basil on my food so he wanted to try some. Then wanted more. And more.

i wonder if cooking fish is like taboo or something on this site?
Nope. Lots of us here eat fish and we also love going fishing.

Edit: The kids insisted on trying a prickly pear, which they surprisingly had at our Walmart. It was actually the sweetest one I've ever had, but neither of them liked it. I don't care for them, either.

That looks so good! :hungry: I would definitely eat that for lunch, but it’s 12 and I just had breakfast :oops:

I’m almost done with school, so that means I’ll have a lot of more time to so many other things (like cooking and baking :joyful:)

This is a Popeye’s Chicken Sandwhich Recipe (keep in mind this probably isn’t the exact same recipe and doesn’t taste exactly the same as the actual sandwich, but it is still really good :)):

Ingredients:
Chicken breast
Tabasco
Cayenne
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Eggs
Buttermilk
Flour
Paprika
Oil (I used olive oil)
Mayonnaise
Dill picked
Jalapeños (optional)
Any white bread will be fine

Chicken seasoning:
Tabasco
Cayenne
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Let marinate until you‘re ready to fry it

Crust:
Dip in:
1-2 eggs
Buttermilk (you can also you normal milk, but it tastes a lot better with buttermilk imo)

Next dip in:
1-2 cups flour
Cayenne
Paprika
Salt
Pepper

Put oil in pan and fry (I used medium heat and fried until it was a golden color)

Mayo spread:
Mayonnaise
Paprika
Cayenne
Tabasco

Finish with:
Dill pickles
Jalapeños (the sandwich itself is spicy, but if you like your food extra spicy, then you can add the jalapeños)

I do not have the exact measurements, but in this recipe it doesn’t really matter because you decide how much of the ingredients you want to add anyways :)

Here’s how mine turned out:

Unfortunately, I suck at taking food pictures lol. I was also really hungry, so I just snapped a quick picture and ate it :hilarious:
If I get a better picture, I’ll make sure to update.
Anddddd here’s the better picture :p:

I love basil too. Ever try the tube of basil in the produce section? So good. I just had a burger earlier this week with melted motz and just tube basil and it was amazing.

I have not, honestly. Always dried or plucked right off the plant. But a basil burger sounds amazing. In the near future...
