if you're a single guy, there's nothing wrong with that, but you're better off learning how to cook properly. It isn't much harder.I saw the commercial for that, and thought the food wells, where the cooking is done, seem very small. I think you'd be better off with a George Foreman type grill.

I didn't say "no attention", I said little. If you think pouring in stock and stirring it is every 5 minutes is challenging, then you are a moron.
If you think making a good risotto is as easy as pouring in stock and stirring every 5 minutes, either you don't make good risotto or you're such an expert at it by now that you forgot how easy it is for a beginner to fuck up. I'm guessing you know what you're doing...I'm just writing this for the 20 year old out there who might read this and believe you that it's just that easy, plan on making a batch for his girlfriend on valentine's day, and then feed her some disgustingly crunchy, mooshy (mushy?), watery, or mortary (if that's a word) piece of shit, causing her to break up with him on the spot before going on and banging his best friend that very night, after which of course he'd put his suicide on youtube with a last message stating something along the lines of "IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE EASY!"You don't want that on your head, do you? DO YOU?

Dissolve the bouillon cube in the water. Add the El Pato, the tomato paste and the water cover simmer for ~20 minutes. (If your timing is off, you can always add a bit more water and let it sit longer)Tequila Shrimp1lb 16-20 count shrimp1 cup Heavy cream1/4 cup Chopped parsley1/4 cup Chopped cilantro1/4 cup chopped scallions1/4 cup olive oil1/2 cup butter1/2 cup good white tequila (stronger the better)tblspn honeyrinse and de-shit your shrimp, pat dry. Coat in honey and the same spices as the steak. Bring pan to medium heat dissolve the butter then add the oil. Add the shrimp and scallions and saute until the shrimp start to turn pink. Add the tequila and flambe (if you have a gas range you can just tilt the pan and it will light, if you have electric you will need a lighter. Be careful and don't have the fan on, it will suck the flam up). Once the flame is almost all coocked down add the cream, parsley and cilantro. Finish cooking 2 more minute until sauce comes to a boil.To serve.Plate the steak and drizzle shrimp and sauce over the steak. Plate the rice and add chopped bananas and sour cream. (Everyone cringes when I tell them this, even I did when my mother in law showed me the recipe. It is about the best thing ever, so try it). You can additional garnish with the cilantro.

I got some brats that I want to cut up and put in some pasta. What's the best way to cook them? We have a shitty charcoal grill so I'm thinking put them on like a skillet and cook them like that, any suggestions? The eggs were decent and I last night I stuffed one of the chicks that came over and ate them

1. High five2. Skillet should be fine. Try to get them semi crispy on the outside, but not too tough. Grill would be better, but firing up a BBQ for just some brats seems like too much work.

Actually you can do both on the grill or bake it.Halibut covered in lemon aioli. (you need a food processor or a strong right arm)Aioli:2 egg yolksJuice of 2 lemons (or lime your choice)~ 1 cup really good extra virgin olive oil2 tblspoon shallots2 garlic cloves1/4 cup scallionssalt pepper1 tspn honeyAdd everything but the oil into a food processor and blend, once the blending begins slowly drizzle in the olive oil (most food processors have a spot to do this, if not you could use a blender). This will emulsify the egg with the oil and bring in the flavors, once it is like a runny mayonnaise consistency its done.Salt and pepper the halibut to your liking, place on a large sheet of foil, spread the aioli all over the halibut and then close the tin foil around the fish, leaving a little space between the fish and top so some steam can build up. Grill or bake for 10-20 minutes depending on thickness of fish.I would serve it with some olive oil drizzled grilled asparagus (al dente) and some brown or wild rice.

The best idea for cooking sausages in tomato sauce (italian is better, by the way) is like EG said, fairly high heat, get some colour on the outside but not cooked all the way through. Slice them and let them cook in the sauce for a couple hours..just keep it on a low simmer. This way some of the sauce flavour is absorbed by the sausages.If you're going to serve them in pasta right away, make sure they're cooked all the way through.

Hahah, I've got a funny challenge for you :)I've got 34 packets of Top Ramen in Chicken, Beef, and Shrimp. I've got 1 can of Chef Boyardee S&Meatballs. I have 1 packet of popcorn. I have 30 hotdogs, 1 packet of bologna, and 48 slices of cheese in the fridge.I'm eating off this for awhile until my first paycheck at my new job. Make up some interesting recipes and ways to cook these ingredients. Typical accessories and spices are around.22 year old food lifestyles! GO!Also, feel free to add other cheap college recipes :)Edit: I've also got a dozen eggs

Just so your not waiting, this most likely isn't going to happen. I have had top ramen like 5 times in my life, I have never had chef boyardee, popcorns popcorn. BBQ up the dogs, give the bologna to your dog and get some bread and make some grilled cheese.

Cook a couple dogs. Then fry up a slice of bologna for each dog. When the bologna is almost done slap some cheese on it and wrap it around the dog.I gagged no less than three times while typing that.

Yeah, I figured it wasn't much. Just kind of wanted to add a sub-topic within a decent thread. College cooking! :PAnd screw the dog! That bologna is mine!
