I'm splitting my cooking content over to this account so I don't need to CW all my food posts :)
I like to bake bread, cook big batches of things that I can freeze leftovers of, and eat all sorts of delicious things 😁 I am known for my frequent avotoast posts.
Here's a sample of some things I've cooked up lately!
👀🍖 no soggy bottoms!!!
"Where did you learn all this"
- watched the cooking channel too much as a small child
- in the before times, I always tried to sit at the chef's counter so I could watch the kitchen staff and pick up new techniques
- desire to eat out less = upped game at home
Now go eat your veggies!!! >:(
To solve this, you need to properly toss the salad. I usually use a big (no, bigger. Really) stainless steel bowl. Often takeout containers aren't large enough!!
Mix until every single piece of greens is thoroughly and evenly coated. And voila! Restaurant quality salad!
Of course, salads don't come pre-dressed because again, dressing contains salt, and salt will wilt the salad. If there's anything crispy (croutons), it will also make those soggy.
DISTRIBUTION: when you pour dressing out of a little container, especially thicker ones, it ends up in globs. You get a bunch of pieces with too much dressing and a bunch with none. Various bits all sink to the bottom and aren't evenly distributed.
Takeout salad doesn't come with any salt mixed in because it will wilt leaves and make them limp.
Thus, I always give salad at least a couple salt grinds before tossing it (+ pepper as applicable).
SEASONING: in their raw form, vegetables taste bitter. The reason veggies taste so good at a restaurant is salt (and possibly a lot of butter).
Salt blocks the bitter receptors on your tongue! 😋
Okay here we go (replies unlisted). You have likely committed one of two salad sins:
1. Didn't season it
2. Messed up the distribution
More of the honey cake 🍯
Happy to turn all your alcoholic beverages into salad dressing
"Oh yeah I was cleaning out the pantry and found 4oz of fancy vinegar I made" u wot
froggy cake 🐸 / final form
holy shit i am DONE!!!
i’m not 100% happy with how this turned out but i am also being really hard on myself. this is the first time i have ever decorated a cake like this !!! and only my second time piping lol. so i guess all of that considered, it’s not bad….
i did learn a lot, and if anything i am now more serious about getting proper tools and practicing my piping more so i can make more cute cakes!
I was going to do lime sour cream for the poblano-corn flat bread but apparently it had gone bad...
