Well, as you may have figured out already I'm Angel (AKA freakangel) and from time to time I cook stuff. You know how it is, need to fuel yourself for the day's activities and so on. Pretty basic stuff eh? *laughs* For me throwing together a handful of things to create a tasty and filling meal or snack usually isn't too difficult, it actually comes fairly easily to be honest.
I've had friends enjoy my random concoctions periodically over the years and frequently they have expressed appreciation for my unique brand and style of tossing together a delectable creation.
This morning upon making breakfast for my boyfriend (butcher bacon seasoned with Montreal steak spice and a serious omelet - sadly there was no photo taken of this breakfast) he was commenting on how good it was and suggested I blog about some of the foods I make us. Perhaps pseudo-recipes and pictures..
Well, now that you are up to speed on what this blog will be about from here out, lets get to it!
This first posting will just be some examples of things made in the past that I happened to have photos of. Pay attention to the captions or information about the foods pictured in this blog and the blogs to come will be more focused on the details of the meals.
|Air Popped corn with real butter and salt - Remember the kernels are WAY cheaper to buy than that microwave crap and an air popper isn't gonna break the bank!|
|Pretty standard: Scrambled eggs, toast and butcher bacon; add a bit of cheese (and ketchup if you are me) and as you can plainly see: Breakfast Sandwich. Voilà!|
|Can't handle gluten? Going low carb? No problem! Broccoli is fantastic with eggs so cut off some pepper jack, fry up some ham, then scramble some veggies in your eggs and use the ham instead of bread to make a killer breakfast sandwich.|
|Awesome Ham n Egger with pepper jack and veggies - The killer breakfast sandwich you can't eat with your hands so have your utensils handy for this one!|
|In the pot: Noodles. In the pan: beef n veggies for a hearty pasta meal. Don't forget the garlic, cayenne pepper and chipotle chilli pepper and seasoning of your choice -> season to taste.|
|All that is missing is the sauce and some cheese, add the noodles, unbuckle your belt and EAT!|
|Serious nachos fresh from the oven.|
|Liberally scoop the pulled pork n veg n sauce mix onto the bare pasta then add grated or parmesan cheese over top.|
|T-Bone time! Steaks pre-seasoned with Montreal steak spice, roasted red pepper and garlic, with a touch of chipotle chilli powder and cayenne pepper. Served up with a deluxe garden salad.|
Camp Fire Cooking:
|While either are good on their own, a simple foil pan is all you need to fire cook bacon wrapped sausages over your camp fire. Pro tip: butcher bacon is often a wider cut, thus making them ideal for wrapping as they cover more surface area.|
