That looks really scrumptious.

Today I made a European nine bean and sausage soup. I also made my own sourdough bread.

OMG that looks amazing! Sourdough is my favourite bread! If you look in the back of my photo you can see my homemade bread in a transparent box (just the end of it left) - it is a french-style simple boule (round bread - we call it artisan here) but with granola and hemp heart sprinkles. I make it fresh every 3-4 days, it is simple.

Holy Hanna! I love bok choi. Probably spelled wrong, but I steam it and serve with hollandais sauce. I could literally live on seafood.

Squid, you better get in on this my Napolitano chef.;)

Seriously, those are some impressive meals.

You know this thread is so sensual - such lustful food it's beautiful.

Just last night over dinner at Mastros last night we were discussing how we didn't think you could put bacon on anything and not like it.

That little treat looks so very delectable.:)

I had the most delicious whipped cream there I have ever had - it was just this side of butter with a lovely sweetness and a hint of vanilla.

I love to cook, and if you cook a great meal it deserves to be served properly. I am a rank amateur, but I am learning. I wish I could go apprentice in a good kitchen in fact, just to learn the ropes.

After the last 3 days of being in the city and filling my face with all the fast food that I have no access to when I'm at home in the middle of nowhere, this looks mighty good.

I love the General! Looks absolutely mouthwatering, even with out the sauce. Fan, what kind of batter do you use to coat the chicken? It looks so light and good. At some restaurants it is like an Easter Egg hunt to find the chicken in the batter. :)
