    I know several of our members like to cook, so let's post pics of recent experiments!

    Here's tonight:

    New Mexico green chili sauce over chicken, with toasted sesame seeds. Side is cilantro-lime rice and black beans with cumin, cilantro and o nion. It is spicy and delish. And a local brew on the side.

    I'll have some good stuff later, Sushi!

    Been experimenting, learning and getting better. Bought a bunch of tools to help.

    Kelly doesn't like uni and I have a tray to eat before it rots. So I'll make 2 rolls tonight, a bare rice roll to top with uni and a kappa maki (cucumber roll)

    With warm saki of course - :)

    Great idea for a thread David. I've been cooking quite a bit lately, and some of the dishes, not all, are photogenic. Maybe this is a sticky candidate???

    Some are kinda rough, but I'm getting better. The kappa maki are very good, I use english cukes. Very good with martini's too - :)

    I've been trying to figure out an effective way to make a family night of doing make it yourself personal pizzas. I thought about buying a few 8" cast iron pans and using those. Not sure.

    Now that I have a gas oven I'm looking for a pizza stone I can put on the bottom of the oven and leave there.

    Carl, it's on the stove after I cooked it in the oven. I ccheated the oven to 550 and that works well. I made my own dough the first time, but our local Italian market has good pizza dough. Much easier.

    CJ, cast iron should work just fine. You just need high temperature in the oven.

    Made another batch last night for Kelly to try. She never had them before and was "skeptical" shall we say. She liked them.

    We've been using this for a few months, and it's been working out pretty well for us: Blue Apron: Fresh Ingredients, Original Recipes, Delivered to You

    Ignore the new age website vibe if that puts you off :) The produce and meat are of generally good quality. The recipes are pretty easy for the most part, and they include the one sauce/spice that you wouldn't normally have lying around in your kitchen that helps make the dish taste more authentic.

    agree....Fresh Choice & Home Fresh are also pretty good.
    Get you outta your 'usual cooking box' branch out.

    Check out this well-priced Pizza Stone CJ. We've been making pizzas at home for years, and the latest way to make them fast, easy and tasty is to use store-bought naan bread for the crust.

    I got this one for $25 from Woot. Solid, with a nice non-stick glaze.
