nothing better than a pair of nice firm puds on a sunday afternoon.. Heaven.
How could you!! garlic salt and plastic Parmasean. Hasve you got a blender? strip a couple of garlic bulbs of their skins, but them in a blender or magi-mix, add some olive oil and blitz until a smooth paste, store it in the fridge in a clean jar witha lid (jam jar will do) When you need it drizzle the paste over the chokes or whatever your making. Far better than garlic salt.

Wow! A fellow Norwegian (even though I'm an expat I'm still Norwegian) I'm not sure if they call them crab claws or crab legs, but they are very yummy. I was telling someone about lutefisk the other day. It's probably not my favourite, but I do love it, and explaining the yummyness that is lutefisk to a non-Norwegian is usually met with disbelief and a big 'yuck' LOL
I haven't tasted lutefisk! I know, I should have... but I really love klippfisk and pinnekjott!! What would christmas be without pinnekjott... I don't know!!

Holy cow! Actual meals growing around your house everyday...that's cool! My grandfather had a house in Naples, Fl right off the beach and the closest he came to that were Tangelo trees growing in his back yard...as big as canalopes! MMM those were SO yummy and juicy!!!
Oh yeah, artichokes ARE a definite acuired taste. Good thing I got my daughter to eat them as soon as she got teeth! She LOVES them now and pulls off all the leaves so she can eat the heart first!!! YUMMMIE!
I do put TONS of parmesean cheese in the stuffing for my artichokes, but yes, I use the grated stuff from a plastic can. LOL...and I dont use fresh garlic cloves, I actually use garlic powder, that way the garlic flavor is all over, not just chunks of garlic...I LOVE garlic but not enough to bite into chunks of it!
Yes used to do somthing similar, but we put shredded parma ham, Reggiano or good domestic Parmesan cheese, grated (don't buy it pre-grated, and don't use that stuff from the plastic box)couple of finely chopped scallions, couple of crushed garlic cloves
some Peccorino Romano cheese, grated in the mix too. open the leaves a little and put the stuffing in then bake / steam in a bain-marie for about an hour - hour and a half.
hey jackmcmadd - Being the chef of the bunch, do you/have you made stuffed artichoke as I explained? I heard many different versions of how to make them (of course I like mine best, hehe) just wondering?
I aint preparing chillies and being semi naked at the same time, those damn chilli seeds get everywhere....
bring tears to my eyes just thinking about it.. and before you say it.. no BBQ's..
It would have to be......
Chicken Fajitas with Nachos..lots of chillies & guacamole..mmmm ....

Hi guys, I'm another newbie from oz. Now vegeimite is definately an aquired taste. Sorry but not one I received from the gene pool. Thai food would be my fav. Green Curry chicken and jasmine steamed rice. YUM
OMG - UZ GUYZ ALL SO FUNNY! hehe. Seriously though, I love reading all these...Scoot, RockChick - EVERYONE!
Ok HERE IS MY ALL TIME FAVE (some of you have mentioned it) BUT I cook it the best anywhere...ask my friends and family - they'll tell ya!
Stuffed Artichokes. NO BUTTER - ICKY!!! But stuffed with bread crumbs, parmesean cheese, olive oil, garlic and lots of lemon - steam until tender, pluck off each leaf and scrape the "meat" and stuffing off the leaf with your teeth! SO YUMMY!
Usually when doing this in a resturant we get lots of stares, but being Italian that is THE ONLY WAY TO EAT THEM!!!!!
Going home tonite to make some, gata now! Belly rumbling....
I only like cheese when it comes in little cubes or on nachos...
But I love anything fried, but I've pretty much cut that out of my diet. Grilled chicken is my new best friend. I love potatoes in any way, shape or form.
Okay... for a real tasty snack I love pretzel twists dunked in whipped cream cheese! So yummy! I love Arby's curly fries and Wendy's chicken nuggets. On the homemade side, I absolutely LOVE chicken and biscuits with mashed potatoes! Mmmmm....
And here I was thinking it was only the rivers, lakes and ocean's around Australia that were dangerous, still it beats dunkin donuts. So I will be only too happy to come and demonstrate my culinary skills for you if you will do the dishes. lol
