Are alcoholic drinks allowed?

As long as they're not really basic like adding two things and stirring, sure. No moonshine recipes or anything that is meant to get you alcohol poisoning though.

Pesto pasta with Peas and Pine nuts.  

Pesto sauce
3 tablespoons walnuts
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 garlic cloves (if you like garlic add up to 4 cloves)
1 cup fresh basil
1 cup spinach
teaspoon salt
black pepper
cup of olive oil
cup grated Parmesan

cup Mayonnaise
cup grated Parmesan
cup peas
cup pine nuts
Salt and pepper
1 pound pasta

You can use any pasta you like, bow tie, fusilli, fettucine etc. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt, then add pasta. Cooking time will vary with each pasta. When done drain pasta, set aside and let cool.

In a food processor pulse together the garlic, walnuts and pine nuts for about 30 seconds. Next add the basil, spinach, salt and pepper. While the processor is running gradually add the olive oil through the feed tube. Continue processing until pureed. Add the Parmesan and puree for 30 seconds.

If you just like regular Pesto sauce stop here and add it to your choice of cooked pasta.

Add mayonnaise to the pesto sauce and puree for 20 seconds. Pour the pesto over the pasta. Next add Parmesan, peas, and pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper, mix and serve.

Chicken Cacciatore

What you need
8 ounces of Tomato sauce
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 cup of crushed cornflakes
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes
1 egg
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preparation
Preheat the oven at 450 degrees F. Prepare the breading in a shallow bowl. Combine the cornflakes, Parmesan cheese and parsley. In a separate bowl, beat the egg. Dip the chicken into the egg, smothering it completely. Afterwards, roll it into the cornflake mixture. Lightly grease an oven dish and place chicken on it. Cook the chicken in the oven for 12-14 minutes, turning halfway through.  

While this is cooking, prepare the sauce. Mix the tomato sauce, garlic powder and Italian seasoning in a bowl, stirring until the seasoning and powder is completely mixed in. Microwave it on HIGH for 2 and a half minutes, stirring halfway through.  

Once the chicken is done, sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the chicken, pour tomato sauce over it, and sprinkle some more mozzarella cheese over it again. Microwave 1 and a half minutes to 2 minutes.

Why not make some pasta to go with it?

Boil One Litre of water in a pot. Add a teaspoon of salt, and once boiled, add 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat Rotini. Stir until the water boils again, and then let it cook for 15-18 minutes depending on how tender you want it.

Drain, then smother with the chicken in tomato sauce.  

Serve and enjoy!

Caramelised Red Onion and Brie Sandwich.

Ingredients:
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
1-2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 small/medium red onion
Brie
About 6 inches of a crusty bread stick (or whatever bread you want to use)

Method:
Take the brie out of the fridge so it can warm to room temp whilst you cook the onions.

Slice the onions. Place them in a frying pan with a glug or two of olive oil. Fry on a medium to high heat for a few minutes, until they've softened a bit. Pour over a few splashes of balsamic vinegar, and the brown sugar. Reduce heat to low, then heat for another 5-7 minutes, constantly moving the onions so they don't stick or burn.

Cut the breadstick to size, layer on slices of brie and then add the onions on top. Enjoy.

Btw, all measurements are approximate. Taste the onions a few times to make sure you've got the sweet/acidic balance right. Adjust as needed.

Really fucking delicious but otherwise unnamed pasta concoction of awesomeosity.

Ingredients:
-Any kind of noodle. Leftovers are great for this 'cause they're already cooked, and there might only be enough for a single person. Ramen, spaghetti, macaroni, penne, whatever. I used spaghetti but everything works.

-Cheese, whatever you got. I used havarti. Grate up as much as you think you need, aiming for about a 1:1 ratio of noodles to cheese. I really like cheese though, so you might not need as much. For a large plate full of spaghetti, I used about a half a cup when grated.

-Cooking oil. Peanut, olive, vegetable. Whatever.

Put the stove on a little more than medium heat. In as big a frying pan as you'll need, add about a tablespoon of oil. Butter could also work, but I used oil. Rotate it around the pan and get it distributed real nice. Once it's sizzling a bit, put your noodles in, and keep them moving. They can sit still for a minute or two without burning, but any more than that is pushing it. Motion is key. Keep on like that, tasting one from time to time, until they get the slightest bit crispy. Then dump onto a plate, and smother in cheese immediately. Pour yourself a drink or something and clean up while you let it sit and the cheese melts, top with oregano or paprika or whatever you like, and enjoy.

Easy Tortilla Chips

Do you love tortilla chips? Would you rather have higher quality and cheaper chips than the ones in the snack aisle? Well, with some rather cheap ingredients, you can make your own restaurant-quality tortilla chips!

You'll need:

-Corn tortillas. At my local grocery store, they cost $.69 for a pack of 10 and $1.49 for a pack of 30. So whatever corn tortillas you get, they shouldn't be too expensive.

-Olive oil

-Salt

-Whatever seasoning you'd like on your chips.

Take your tortillas out and stack them high. With a decently sharp knife, you can cut the entire stack all the way through. So cut the stack into either fourths or sixths, depending on how big you want the chips.

Next, lay the strips down on an ungreased baking sheet. Lay the tortilla portions in a single layer on the sheet, and brush each portion with oil. Next, get a pinch of salt and sprinkle it over the chips. If you like saltier chips, put more salt on them.

Here's the fun part. Take any seasoning you want, take a dash of it, and sprinkle that on the chips as well. Maybe you just like pepper. Or maybe you want a more flavorful chip and you'll use chili powder. I like a bit of a lime flavor, so I'd get some lime juice and sprinkle it over my chips. Or if you'd rather they be plain so you can make nachos or tortilla soup, just leave them as they are.

Now, preheat your oven to 350, and when the preheating is over, load your chips in the oven. It should take about 10 to 15 minutes to fully bake. Just keep an eye on them for when they start curling at the edges, because you'll then know that they're crisping.

When they're done, you'll have crispy, healthy, and rather cheap tortilla chips for anything from nachos to a side dish. Enjoy.

Kronk's Honey Garlic Tacos

500g of Extra Lean Ground Beef(Gotta love the healthy shit)
1 Bottle of Diana Honey Garlic BBQ sauce(Substitute with your favourite brand name if you must.
200-300g sliced onions (Depends how much you like onions)
200g green bell pepper (Generally one half of a bell pepper
200g sweet yellow bell pepper(Generally one half of a bell pepper)
Shredded cheese(Preferably a tex mex)
4 Large Whole Wheat soft tortillas
Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Slice onions into half rings, and chop peppers into small half-strips.
  • Turn heat on Med. heat.
  • Cover the pan in oil, wait til oil heats up
  • Add the ground beef, stirring until browned
  • Add onions and peppers. Cook thoroughly
  • Turn heat to Low, smother contents of the pan in sauce
  • Add to tortillas and dress with cheese. If you want you can add shredded lettuce and other taco regulars, but I feel it takes away from the honey garlic flavour.

Protip: For more spice, add in regular taco mix before adding the Honey Garlic sauce.
Caution! Sauce may drip from tacos and will be very hot, be careful.
Serves 2

COCONUT MACAROONS

This is my version of coconut macaroons. Coconuts (especially it's texture) is usually a love-it or hate-it thing. So if you don't hate it, you most likely will love this very easy to do sweet treat.

Ingredients:

200 g pack of dessicated coconut (don't know how easy to find that is)
250 mL sweetened condensed milk
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
100 pieces of small paper cups
4 eggs

Beat the eggs. Add in milk, sugar, and butter. You may place it over low fire to fully melt sugar until smooth. Add in dessicated coconut and mix until well-blended. Place in paper cups 3/4 full.

Bake in 350F oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
