I couldn't find a thread quite like this anywhere, so here it is! What delicious item did YOU just cook? Pictures and recipes are encouraged!

I made sausage balls for a Derby Party a while ago, and ended up with a whole bunch of leftover Bisquick, so I've been figure out fun things to make with it. Tonight I wanted something sweet, so I looked on the Betty Crocker website and found Praline Meltaway Biscuits - http://...bettycrocker.com/...s/Recipe.aspx?recipeId=36145

I got rid of the pecans (because I don't like them) and added some chopped apples instead, and added a bunch of cinnamon to the biscuit dough, plus more chopped apples. They're delicious, and super easy!

1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 1/4 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2/3 cup milk or Cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 425°F. Spray bottoms and sides of 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Stir together butter, brown sugar and pecans in small bowl. Divide sugar mixture evenly among muffin cups.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk and granulated sugar in medium bowl until soft dough forms. Place a spoonful of dough in each muffin cup.
3. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Turn pan upside down onto cookie sheet. Leave pan over biscuits a few minutes to allow brown sugar mixture to drizzle over biscuits. Replace topping from pan on biscuits. Cool slightly before serving; serve warm.

Wow, that's really well done. Thanks for the details and things, too.

Last thing I did was grill steaks for mother's day. This is a great thread, though. I'll definitely be back. With pictures!

Thanks dude! I really hope more people actually post in it.

I had a kind of crappy day, so I made myself a tasty breakfast-for-dinner! Nothing too fancy, but really tasty and homey. Gorgonzola omelette, pan-fried herbed red potatoes, and buttery grits!

I made "Japanese Style Simmered Sweet Kabocha" tonight.
Recipe link: http://tr.im/lCfx

I had to make my own dashi stock to do it, but that's cool 'cause now I know how to make miso from scratch.

It doesn't photograph that well. I dressed it up with a couple mint leaves from my windowsill. Damn tasty though. Sweet potato-y, but with squash-like texture.

This was last night, but I (with the aid of Melissa) cooked linguini all'arrabbiata with shrimp. Came out a bit hotter than I intended it to, but the flavors were spot on.

Very tasty. Deserves some good ice cream.
I may have a cooking problem.

Has there ever been an OB Potluck? If not, there should be one. If so, we should have another.

Technically it was a little while ago, but I tried to run a special tonight at the bar, drunken salsa chicken. Chicken breast, bit of cheddar melted on top, a little salsa borracho over that, yellow rice w/ beans and fried plantains as sides. It was moderately amazing, and I saved most of it to bring home. Gonna try and run it this weekend when there are actually people to buy it.
PS: Salsa borracho, for the record, being basically just a simple salsa you cook and render down a bit in beer, hence the name "drunken salsa." I didn't have much to work with, just some green peps, tomato, and sliced japs added to some onions and a couple cloves' worth of garlic I sweated out ahead of time. Cut it with some cumin and a dash of "taco seasoning" to give it some body. Worked all right.

It's threads like these that make me wish I had a camera so I could record my kitchen exploits.

I just made burgers tonight, mostly because I spent the entire day at work making marinades and slicing onions and peppers. I have some tri-tips in the freezer though and I have a recipe for BBQ sauce that I'm dieing to try out.
