I don't cook nor do I have to. I just have to say "Damnit woman make me a sammich" and I get a sammich.

(Didn't think it would be a cooking thread without a woman making a sammich joke)

I'm 20, and my mom still does most of the cooking when I'm home from college, but when I do get a chance to cook, I cook pasta mainly. Spaghetti is my specialty. I want to get into Asian food though. I like to bake too. I'm a chocoholic so my baking is usually chocolate chip cookies or bars, chocolate cakes/pies, or brownies. :)

I would probably say for my age I'm pretty decent. I love making my own dry rubs for steaks and since it's getting warm out I'll go throw em on the grill. Even though I live on the east coast I'm really big on southern cooking like Bobby Flay (I also watch a lot of Food Network lol)

i dunno about cooking but give a good drummer a couple of chef's knives and they could probably cut 20 pounds of salad in a minute and a half at 220 cuts a minute......

Dry rub, yes! What do you use? I use dry rub on everything I smoke. Rub it on real good and smoke ribs and brisket and chickens for hours, oh baby!

I also make my own barbecue sauce. That bottled stuff is crap.

I like either hickory or mesquite for smoking, depending on what's for dinner.

con struct, I actually make my own sauce aswell! My recent bottle is about gone so I need to rig up some new stuff. And as for my rubs, I always start with a base of paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. Then I just add to that what I'm feelin that night (cayenne, chili, terragon, etc.).

I blame the phone's bad camera! The meat was absolutely heavenly.

By the way, it seems that someone has already realised how swell cooking and drumming go together:

Default Re: Can Drummers Cook?

So, here, as requested, is the way I make meatloaf.

1 pound of ground beef, I use ground sirloin
1/2 pound of ground pork
2 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup of crushed dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup of chopped green pepper
1/2 cup of chopped celery
A couple of cloves of chopped garlic

1 teaspoon of white pepper
1 teaspoon of red pepper
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1/2 teaspoon of thyme

Put 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet and turn the heat high enough to make the butter melt and bubble. Dump in the vegetables and seasonings, keep stirring the whole thing with a wooden spoon and cook the vegetables until they're transparent, but don't burn the garlic.

Meanwhile mix the beef, pork, eggs and bread crumbs together in a big mixing bowl. Then pour in a little milk, just a little. When the vegetables are cooked pour the whole thing into the mixing bowl and mash it all together with your hands, mixing everything together. That part is rather gross. But what you're doing is making a gigantic meatball.

When you've got the big meatball just roll it into a baking pan, the one I like to use is Pyrex, form it into a loaf but keep the sides of the meatloaf sloping in away from the sides of the baking pan.

Put that in your 450 degree oven for around thirty minutes. Take the pan out and pour the drippings into another pan to use for making gravy. Let the meatloaf rest for, say, five minutes and there you go.

mmm...

Thanks Con. I'm a pretty lousy cook, although I can grill a mean steak. I think I'm gonna email this to my brother and make him prepare this for me. I got the musical ability, he got the culinary. Although I'm a better cook than he is a musician.

Here is one of my simple Polish dishes that I like to eat when I am on a fat binge.

Take a real smoked Polish Keilbasa. Buy it in a Polish deli, Do not use Hilshire Farm brand!
Boil the Polish sausage until the skin splits open.
Hard boil some eggs.
Buy some real Polish rye bread in the same deli that you got the Keilbasa from. Jewish rye will also work.

Cut the Polish sausage into 1/4 inch thick slices.
Peel and slice the boiled eggs into 1/4 inch slices.

Layer the sausage and egg slices onto a piece of the bread.
Add plenty of fresh Horseradish and some spicy brown mustard.
Make a Sandwich and enjoy!

I bet that you can't eat just one sandwich!

Jay, Im going to try your Meatloaf. It sounds good.

Never mind, Bob, a common mistake and easily made. Cockroach patties, anyone?

Wow Bob, you totally have me pegged! Damn, my shroud of secrecy is out ... I'm really a closet earth mother :)

Eating one of my concoctions I type ... a super-chunky soup with turnip, parsnip, potato, carrot, celery, onion, garlic and jasmine rice ... flavoured with curry, rosemary, pepper, caraway seeds and mixed herbs. Also tossed in an egg and grated some cheese on top. It's over the top but pretty tasty - a bit like Moonie :)

OK ... here's a fast, easy one.
Cook up some pasta ... spaghetti, rotellinni, whatever....
In a skillet, heat some olive oil ... with finely diced garlic ... til the garlic starts to brown
Now, throw some chopped spinach into the skillet. This won't need to be on the heat very long, at all.
OK, drain the pasta, throw the oil, garlic, spinach onto the pasta (like it's sauce). Set aside, not done yet.
Take that same skillet. Cook up as many eggs, sunnyside up, as you have people to feed.
This is where a little pre-sen-ta-tion helps. Take the pasta out to the table, on a serving plater. Let peoples serve themselves some pasta.
Round the table you go, dropping a sunnyside up egg on top of everyones pasta heap.
eat

" I have to cook, my wife never really learned (although I am teaching her"

I have the same issue, although now she cooks things that are quite pleasing. She can't make a better steak or turkey though. "Temple of the Vampire" turkey! Garlic in there to get rid of the pests!
You bast with white wine instead, sounds crazy but people have told me its the best turkey they ever had. Not my recipe got it from a cookbook.

I only cook because I despise prepackaged meals, fast food and eating out in general.

Usually, I'll throw a chicken breast on the foreman grill and eat it on some spinach with a sweet potato.

Probably my favorite recipe is nothing really special at all, it's something I innovated, although not really.

I basically chop up a lot of garlic, and throw in a bunch of peas and mixed vegetables with Salmon in olive oil. After that I'll add a lot of basil and chili peppers. When it's finished cooking, I'll throw a small amount of parmesan cheese (not powder) on it.
