Heh, in this case, fakery is made of tapioca flour, spices (both dried and fresh), veggie broth, and I think I put in tamari for color. And then of course I use lots and lots of shallots fried in garlic-infused olive oil. I slice them rather than chop them so they have a very apparent presence. I mean, it's about the only good thing in the gravy, so I go big there. :P

Hmmm, perhaps you could try dripping melted chocolate in it? You'd have to be careful. I often made these cheesecake brownies, but they're not the same.

As for me, the other day I made some pasta with grated zucchinis, peas, and cream.

I'm reminded of a revoltingly yummy thing I learned about as a kid. Bake a normal white sheet cake, then use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke a deep hole every inch or so when it's cooled. Pour just-mixed Jello over top and let set. You end up with cake infused with Jello. Very tasty to a 13-year-old in love with sugar.

I don't recommend pouring Jello over a cracked cheesecake, though. Maybe an apricot jam glaze?

Apple cider braised chicken thighs with baked potatoes. The skin came out nice and crispy and the sauce was fantastic on the spuds.

I'm betting at least half, but on my bits, to be fair, I preface them with a "well, yesterday I made" or something of the sort.

on that note: Yesterday I made!

A proper sunday roast dinner: roasted brisket on a bed of root veggies (purple sweet potato, carrot, onion, celery root), corn with butter/pepper, and jacket potatoes.

Served up with a nice English ale.

Mine are always the prior day, pretty much... speaking of: yesterday I made much of my prior Thanksgiving stuff a second time, basically trading the pumpkin pie for garlicky brussels sprouts. Meanwhile, that pot luck friendsgiving we all resultingly had together was ridiculous. I think we had four kinds of stuffing. I love stuffing, but that is too much stuffing.

Charred some broccolini. Sweated some shallots, garlic, nduja, summer sausage, and chile flakes until it all turned into a glorious spicy meaty paste. Stirred in the broccolini, some orange zest, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Topped with a couple of runny eggs. I don't know what to call it, but I'll be making it again.

Today I'll be making:
Screaming ginger cookies (dark spice base, three types of ginger, fresh, powdered, and crystalized)
Prep (preferment) for high extraction sourdough bread (using sifted whole wheat flour, taking out part of the bran)
Dinner is going to be black bean and chorizo casserole, great for heating up the house.

Couldn't decide what sort of Chinese-ish soup to use to soothe my slightly hoarse throat, so I kind of made all of them at once: hot-and-sour egg-drop numbing-spicy chicken and rice soup. Topped it off with sliced scallion greens, and crispy-fried scallion whites.

Saturday we had a Hanukkah party, so while Alex was making latkes, I made some sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts essentially). They turned out tiny (which was cute) but a bit too dark in color - I guess the oil was too hot. But they were cooked inside and didn't taste burney so that's OK I suppose.

I always have trouble with doughnuts. Big industrial fryer, pot of oil on the stove- there is always some problem. I'm glad yours came out ok!

I've given up on fried doughnuts, I'm happy to let someone else make them.

Yesterday I made:
6-grain sourdough pan bread

Today I made:
Sourdough pancakes (with the extra starter from the day before)

Today I'm making:
Pie crust (to wrap around these tiny apples and bake)
Pizza dough (for pizza later in the week)
Preferment for the first kugelhopf of the season

Duck breasts with a chile-honey-ginger glaze. Served with braised baby bok choy and a grain mix labeled as "health rice", which has barley flakes and red lentils and buckwheat and other stuff with brown rice.

The last doughnuts I made were a low carb version that required some initial cooking in a mini doughnut maker (or pan in oven) to shape them, then I finished them in oil for the right taste/texture. It wasn't as much work as I thought, and sooooo delicious.

An experiment: avakai-deviled eggs. Avakai is a spicy South Indian oil-based pickle made with raw (as in underripe) mango, mustard seeds, and lots of red chiles and other spices. I chopped some up finely and mixed it with mayo and boiled egg yolks (and some additional seasonings) and piped it into some egg whites. Turned out well, thanks largely to the hard boiled eggs being cooked to exactly the right done-ness. I debated replacing some or all of the mayo with strained yogurt -- avakai and yogurt are often eaten together -- but didn't have any yogurt in my fridge. I'm not a very good half-South-Indian.

This thread broke me a tiny bit. Especially Mighty Jalapeno's dal makhani, which is my favourite curry.

I suddenly have a medical need for a slow cooker. What technology could allow me to also cook something for 24 hours, with fine control? I'm looking at slow cookers specifically. Does anyone have any recommendations/advice on this front?

And roughly in keeping with the thread: Yesterday I made a lamb, beef and prune tagine. Adore vaguely sweet stews. Eating it today, served with garam masala and sour cherry cous cous, with friends!

For really fine temp control go with a sous vide set up. It will hold the temp you want for as long as you want. I can give more details if you want once I'm not on my phone.

Yesterday I made myself a peppers and monterey jack quiche. It's fine, but too liquidy - the peppers were very enthusiastic and I put in a lot of them. I should've cooked them first, but was hungry and being lazy. Ah well. It's still tasty, and has plenty of vegetables. :)

Made a crepe cake for Christmas tomorrow. The original recipe calls for crepes and whipped cream with grand marnier and orange zest. I decided to switch out those two, put some other liquor (we had elderflower, could have used more probably), and also a thin layer of raspberry jam between each two crepes. It looks good! Should be relatively delicious.

You've reminded me of when I took a small bottle of elderflower soda to a friend's place. Straight samples were interesting but not engaging. Mixing it with whisky (I didn't try it) apparently made something quite delicious. Mixing it with Grand Marnier apparently created a disaster of monumental proportions that caused those who tried it to swear off elderflower soda for the rest of their lives.

TIM a sample of a sauce I hope to pour over dinner tomorrow. Mom graciously let me know that I have to bring my own Xmas eve dinner (not that abnormal - she can't keep track of my allergies anymore).

I figure I'll bring the same steamed veg I've been taking to work, but with something fancier than just a tub of hummus to go along. Broccoli stalk, yam, and butternut squash slices, arranged in nice rows in a serving dish instead of heaped into a plastic thingammy and bunged into my backpack.

Fantasising about some nice spices in yogurt led me to search for "cardamom ginger nutmeg sauce". No one seems to add nutmeg to their cardamom ginger sauce (which does seem to be a thing), but it's my food so tough. Though I do expect others to have some as a side dish. (Probably not the kids. They're still stuck on mac-n-cheese.)

A bit of experimenting today turned into kefir (specifically this stuff) heated with pinches of ground ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, turmeric, and dried basil. If I can find any fresh basil tomorrow, I may try that, for looks as much as flavour. I really hope that the 1-cup version of the sauce turns out as nice as the 3-tbl version did. Nummy.

I might also try a hint of browned shallots. Not sure if that will wreck it or kick it up to the next level. I'm just mildly intolerant of onions, so I could have a bit and not do myself much damage.

Chaat masala is often served with yogurt. The store-bought mixes might contain some stuff you're allergic to, but the ingredient list might give you some ideas. For instance, I don't know if you can eat hing (asafoetida), but Jains tend to use it as an onion substitute.

Followup: we accidentally had a vegan for dinner. (As guest.) The yogurt thing was out, so I just sprinkled some spices and olive oil over things and hoped for the best. It wasn't terrible.

Oh yeah, other Christmas stuff Alex and I made - Alex's mom is from a Ukrainian family and they always have a traditional meal with very similar things. So we helped make a soup with beans, barley, and sauerkraut juice (which was delicious). The sauerkraut itself, along with other veggies and things, was used as filling for pierogi (sort of Eastern European dumplings). And I also made some roasted sweet potatoes with Sriracha, olive oil, paprika, honey, and garlic. I just love yams and sweet potatoes so much!

Butter-poached lobster tails with a lemon herbed butter sauce, roasted cauliflower and very fancy radiatore pasta. The pasta was formed with a complex cutter and was extra wavy. I did not make it.

Ooh, this all sounds fascinating. And now I super want pierogi.

I made banana chocolate chip muffins and stuffed peppers. I may have made way too much filling for the peppers, though, so I suspect I'll be doing this again in a month, but with significantly fewer steps.

We had a huge amount of filling - both the potato filling and the sauerkraut filling. Often they make a pie out of leftover sauerkraut, I suggested this time they make a Ukranian-style shepherd's pie.

I got Alex a waffle maker for Christmas since he's been obsessed of making falafel-waffles (or "fawaffles") for a really long time, so we'll be making that tonight.

I am making Mighty Jalepeno's (linked blogporn version of) Dal Makhani. Had some urud saboot lying around, wanting to be used up.

This new pressurecookerslowcooker thing is enchanted. I got it £80 off, and have just received another £6 off since the price dropped again. And tonight it yields a version of my favourite curry 0_0 Truly it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Soon I'll be making freezeblade's black bean and chorizo casserole. Life is good.
