Special Oyster Sauce Mix

(Recipe credits: Spice’n Pans – YouTube. Visit his channel!)

One of my favourite asian cooking YouTube channels “Spice’n Pans” posted this recipe already a while ago: A simple, versatile and always seizable condiment for easy noodle dishes. For those days when you really can’t be arsed to make a big effort on cooking – I’ve tried this out and since then I always have a jar of it in stock in the fridge. Very convenient and very delicious. Since I used this condiment oftentimes now, I will also try the shallot oil he makes in his video.


How To: Make a Roux

Roux - Stolen Image (allrecipes.com)

Roux – Stolen Image (allrecipes.com)

I was asked by a member of the extended family circle about a recipe requiring a roux.

So let’s make a “Roux“… Ahh… yeah, right. Sure. Of course. This is french. It’s pronounced ( /ˈr/ ) and this sounds sooo much better than the german Mehlschwitze, which – honestly – sounds more like a sore throat 🙂 .

A roux is used as a basis for things like heavy sauces, soups or stews. It thickens them up and makes them creamy and rich. Since it’s a base-ingredient, it is very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of cooking tasks from the standard french cuisine mother sauce Béchamel up to New Orleans Gumbo. Google “roux usage” and you’ll see what I mean.

Some people find making a roux a little intimidating because, yes, you can absolutely screw it up, but if you follow these simple steps here, I promise you’ll nail it every time. It’s no magic.


Blamco™ Mac & Cheese

I put the Bethesda Cookbooks that I got recently to use and, after making Skooma from the Elder Scrolls Cookbook, yesterday I made “Blamco Mac & Cheese” (Fallout 4 Item ID: 0002fbe4) from the Fallout Vault Dweller’s Cookbook. Yummy!

Admittedly, basically this is an ordinary Mac’n Cheese, but souped up Fallout-colored. I like that! It’s easy to make, yummy and convenient.

Again, this is the only recipe I will post from the book since it’s all copyrighted (but I’m a fierce and fearless Wasteland Raider and Mac’n Cheese is not such an uncommon recipe). See it as an appetizer if you’re pondering on buying the book.


Pasta Cooking for Dummies

These are my 5 commandments for cooking italian pasta that I’ve gathered over the last years and that have proven useful. It’s not that hard anyway but not everyone is a routined chef and I would have been happy if I had known some of these seemingly plain tips in the beginning.

These basic steps and fundamentals will hopefully help you nail it as much as they helped me 🙂

If you’re still pondering with pasta to cook, have a look at Jamie Oliver’s pasta shapes guide.


Dutch Oven White Chicken Chili

Someone inquired the recipe for the White Chicken Chili I made recently, so here it is, I’m glad to deliver:

Ingredients (for 4 – 5):

500 g ground chicken
2 medium onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
400 ml chicken broth
4-6 green chilies
1.5 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 cans white beans, undrained
Salt & Pepper


Rigatoni alla Gricia

A very simple italian pasta dish that requires only three ingredients, but, when done properly tastes heavenly. Read about the interesting origin of the dish here.


Skooma

Game Skooma

Game Skooma

My Skooma

My Skooma

Whoever has played Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls Series with enthusiasm and dedication like me will know what “Skooma” is. As I got the official Elder Scrolls Cookbook these days, the first recipe to try for me was – of course – Skooma. By the way: I highly recommend the book, just for the fun!

Here’s the recipe for that booze that I copied and loosely translated from the mentioned above book. I will not post any more of them here since they’re all copyrighted, I just couldn’t resist this one. But hey, Skooma itself is highly illegal in the whole world of Tamriel!

Khajit has warez if you have coin” 🙂


Tomato Sauce (Basic Recipe)

My basic, easy and quick recipe for a really yummy pasta sauce. This base sauce can then also easily be honed up to your liking.


Burgers!

I made me some Burgers yesterday for dinner – it’s been a long time since – and I really craved for them. I know, making Hamburgers is a quasi-religious thing, but exactly that’s why everybody makes them the way they personally like best – mine are rather simple.


Chicken with Mushrooms in Hoisin Sauce

Another un-fancy, yet yummy recipe you can easily memorize. It requires only a few ingredients, it’s no fuzz to make and it’s hearty and filling. Best served over rice.
