Take-out is my specialty because I rarely cook for myself. But when I do, I’m pretty creative with pasta dishes.

Asian cuisine, mostly Szechuan and Thai. French, usually by way of rural Quebec. A few Cajun recipes and miscellaneous American meat and potatoes things. My true specialties are bread baking, beer brewing and making schnapps. Oh, and I can turn out a reasonably good meat loaf if necessary.

I make a killer bean soup, with ham hocks, bacon, lots of onion, and homemade bread.
Lucille, I even make a very good meatloaf. :)

Good food on a budget. That’s me.

And I apparently have an incredible ability to concoct vanishing party food by making the recipe up as I go along.

I have a notebook with “Alyson’s Compendium of Kickass Recipes” in which I write down the hits afterward. It’s full of things like “Disappearing taco dip”, “sausage and bacon soup”, “vegan carrot and five-bean chili”, “Cheesy stuffed mushrooms”, “Heart Attack Special” – that’s a breakfast dish – a dozen eggs, a pound of sausage or bacon, a ½ lb of sharp cheddar, a stick of butter and a cup of heavy cream, baked. And it cures hangovers.

Cottage Pie.
Minced beef and some onion, browned in a pan together and put in a pie dish. Stir in a small can of baked beans (my not-so-secret secret ingredient) and a generous dash of soy sauce (the real secret ingredient – I use it as a substitute for salt). Top it off with a thick layer of mashed potato, sprinkle a bit of grated cheese on top and cook in a medium oven for about half an hour. Delicous.

@downtide Ooh, I’ll have to throw some beans and soy sauce in my next cottage pie. I wonder what would be the best veggie to add to that. Carrots?

downtide's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr carrots are good, so are mushrooms (especially the big old flat field mushrooms – full of flavour). Chop everythig up small. Back when I was a vegetarian I used to substitute the beef for TVP, but then you need a strong vegetable stock and plenty of herbs or spices otherwise it’s just too bland.

I don’t think i have a speciality, but i can follow a few recipes really well to make a yummy dish. :D There’s a delicious maroccan rice pilaf that i make….OOOHHH! I just remembered – my potato salad!!! Everybody loves that. Also, i make the yummiest home made burgers. And really yummy tomato and cheese samis, because i put on mustard and a special spice. My toast and eggs are pretty good too, when i get the egg yolk just perfect and runny (but cooked).

My specialty is looking at a recipe as an inspiration to cook something similar, but with ingredients we have at hand, or what I know we will like. I rarely follow a recipe item by item.

Aster's avatar

ummm maybe Chinese.

Jabe73's avatar

Grilling steak, chicken and fish. I am real good with pot roast, beef noodle soup (old Ukranian recipe passed down through my family over the years), lasagna and spaghetti.
