    I'd take the steak and the potato with mushroom cream sauce, on a day I'm not counting calories. :p

    Homemade recipe.

    It's chicken with a horseradish mustard and lemon sauce; over white rice with steamed veggies.

    Another homemade recipe. Lemme know if y'all get tired of my strange recipes.

    Flash grilled tuna steak with a lemon herb sauce (I love cooking with lemon) herb and pepper rice and steamed broccoli.

    I had wanted to make a surf and turf--but I had only one sirloin and many many fish steaks. Also had no lobster--so it would have been a college style surf and turf--meaning a steak and a small piece of fish.

    I also love tuna steaks and cooking with lemon. I didn't think I'd like tuna steaks because for the longest time I've had an aversion to anything being cooked anything but well-done (I'm sort of a germaphobe) and tuna HAS to be medium rare. I've worked through my issues enough to enjoy some meats a bit undone now and I'm so glad because tuna is SO good.

    I made falafel! It's one of my favorite foods! I used lentils instead of chickpeas because I had SO many lentils in the pantry. Chopped up onion, a ton of garlic, parsley, cilantro, and used cumin, cardamom, clove, nutmeg, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and cayenne to spice it. Lightly coated them in olive oil and fried them up in the air fryer. Made a little Isreali salad (minus tomatoes because they aren't in season).

    That looks so good!

    Edit: Didn't want to make a new post since I made this one earlier--

    Last night--I had an idea to make a marinara shepherd's pie. I got off work early and decided I was gonna try it.

    I grilled a few sausages in some sherry and pan cooked some 97% lean beef with light seasoning of salt/pepper. Diced a yellow, orange and red bell pepper, red onion and garlic; sliced some mushrooms too. Made some basic marinara sauce with a hint of tabasco.

    I made mashed potatoes with four different variants of potato; red new potatoes, Yukon yellow, Peruvian purple and Russet, with a bit of cream, butter and spices... put the meat on the bottom of a glass baking dish and layered the potatoes on top... and this is the result.

    Also made some garlic cheese bread.

    The presentation is a little poor, and it came out a teeny bit watery--but I'll reduce it next time around. I'll also make it in ramekins rather than a glass dish.

    My girl said this was one of the best things I had ever made. She's stuffed, might have to roll her into the office.

    Oh I love Shepherds Pie, it's one of my alltime favourites that I love to make in many variations.

    I absolutely love German food. My girl has taught me many recipes. Looking forward to visiting her family out in Cologne and coming home ten pounds heavier.

    She did! She said it was as authentic as it could get. She made me some schnitzel recently but I didn't take a pic. Was so good.

    I have so many list I wish I can share in one post, but I'm gonna write the best one I've made recently, stuffed thicc cheeseburgers! Shame that I didn't picture-:
    For the bun:
    - 360ml Warm Milk (40-43C°)
    - 2.25 Tsp (or one packet) Yeast
    - 1 Large Egg
    - 2 Tbsp Sugar
    - 60g melted butter
    - 1.5 Tsp salt
    - 440g All Purpose Flour
    - 65-110g additional Flour

    - Mix the wet ingredients with yeast and set a side till foamy.
    - In the meantime, add the 440g flour, and salt in a stand mixer bowl on low speed with a kneeding hook.
    - pour the yeast mixure, and increase the speed to medium for 3 mins till well incorporate. The dough will be hella sticky.
    - Add the additional flour (not all of it if possible) till the dough becomes soft and little sticky but elastic.
    - Place the dough in the oiled bowl and cover it. Let it rise for 1 hour or more.
    - 1Kg ground beef (15% fat)
    - Salt
    - Pepper
    - Cheddar Slices

    - preheat the oven to 200C°, and the frying pan with olive oil drizzles in medium high heat.
    -Kneed the burgers and form them into a thick golf balls (I made 5 which turned later into gigantic bun so make it smaller--)
    - place them in a hot pan (be careful not to burn yourself!) Cook them for 3 mins each side (the outside should be all brown)
    - Transfer the burgers in oiled baking tray (preferbly olive oil), bake for 15-20 mins (depends the size of your burgers), flip them in between (the burgers should be well cooked at this time)
    - After leaving the dough to rise, punch it lightly before tranferring it in a floured board, cut them at the amount of your burgers.
    - Place the burgers (with cheddar on top!) in the center of the flattened (not too thin) dough, and carefully wrap them up :LZSproud:
    - Leave the stuffed buns in a baking tray, or lasagna pan (any dish you prefer), cover them with tea towel and let them rise for one more hour.

    - In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180C°, and prepare the egg wash of one egg and a dash of milk.
    - The buns should be doubled in size at this point, brush them with egg wash, and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top (optional).
    - Bake the buns for 20-25 mins, or until golden brown.
    - Once you take them buns out of the oven, cover them with tea towel so they'll remain soft till serving time.
