How am I supposed to enjoy, or at least tolerate cooking? It takes so long, and you need to give it lots of attention. It's pretty obvious cooking was invented before recreation, so how are people doing it today when you can have fun instead?
Maybe it wouldn't be as bad if I didn't have to clean up tools afterwards, but I do. The only thing that makes sense to cook is huge portions that will last for days, but that seems to limit what you can cook reliably.

The details actually helped a bit since it's a more complicated bread, but I didn't need to waste the bandwidth on downloading her blog... but I guess some introduction and backstory is nice for some people

Why is it that adding milk and sugar to coffee makes it taste a bit like chocolate?

 No.77710

>>77708
Have you considered it's because the chocolate you're familiar with is milk chocolate?

Coffee and chocolate are both bitter brown beans loaded with caffeine and shit. Shouldn't come as much of a surprise that they're pretty similar in taste.

Have you ever made a real macaroni and cheese, /qa/? Not the boxed stuff, but buying real cheese and stuff.
I've had a few different mac and cheeese dishes from restaurants and I never like them as much as the garbage Kraft mac and cheese which presumably isn't even cheese.
Maybe if I make it to my own specifications I can enjoy it more than the packaged crap?

 No.77848

>>77844
Haven't ever made it myself, but I do remember that the only Mac n Cheese I've had that was really good outside of Kraft was some kind of shell pasta with really nice chedder-y cheese. Maybe try searching for a recipe like that?

 No.77849

>>77844
regularly, it never tastes the same because I usually use whatever cheese I have in the fridge.
I like making that because I have a machine to heat and stir sauces at the same time so there's nothing to do aside from adding cheese and waiting.

Dunno how the boxed stuff tastes though because cheese fundamentalists would behead you for selling this where I live.

Got a rice maker a while ago, but haven't been using it that often. I'm not sure if the "pop" from Cook -> Warm really works, so I normally take off the lid and stop it myself.

Anyways, my rice has been somewhat bland, so today (tonight) I decided to try something I've heard mentioned every now and then: adding salt to water. Sure enough, it made my rice taste a lot better. To this point, I'd always added salt to rice after making it, but now that I know about this, I'll probably do it this way from now on.

 No.77922

Every now and then I buy rice. I just realized after all this time, it wasn't that I was washing my rice poorly that was making my rice sticky, but that I kept buying sticky rice. whoops. wish they would've put that somewhere on the bag...

I helped myself to some while you were gone but I spilled a little...
Is that basically curry or something? Do you use it as a curry replacement? Is it spicy? Was it difficult to make?
The only time I can see myself making something like that is if it's at least 10 servings that I can eat for a while.
Does it freeze well? That'd be good, too.

you are in luck because this recipe makes for about 8-12 servings like in the picture

4 onions
6 carrots
a head of garlic
^ sweat all of the above in a bunch of canola oil

a big squeeze of tomato paste
a 220 gram can of chipotles in adobo, chopped up a bit
^ toss these in and stir around until they get a bit of char

2 400 gram cans of crushed tomatoes
^ toss this in and add seasoning, bring to a boil

700 grams of dried red lentils, rinsed
2 liters of good vegetable stock
^ toss these in and simmer for around 40 minutes so they turn to mush and you get a nice curry-stew like consistency

seasoning:
salt, black pepper, cumin, coriander, dried oregano, smoked paprika, turmeric, garlic powder, cinnamon, nutritional yeast

shit i had laying around so i also tossed them in:
a minced jalapeno, a lime and some tamarind paste

I made a simple thing my mom made once in a while. It's cheap, lasts a while and hits the right notes. (the last remark is cooking pro talk)
I cooked some bacon on a thing that helps drain all the grease, and then I combined it with elbow macaroni and tomato soup. It's pretty darn good and hits some weird combination of flavors that I really like. Probably not very nutritious... maybe I should try for whole grain noodles or something next time. I've tried it with turkey bacon and it was utterly horrendous.
