OH MY GOSH

I came into this thread to recommend my current favorite snack: roasted broccoli with olive oil and salt and paprika and cayenne pepper! Hatmoose, are we culinary twins?

Okay okay, I'll contribute a different thing: baked kale! Tear kale into bits, mix with way less olive oil than you would think, lay out on a foiled baking sheet, salt a wee bit, pop into the oven for 10 minutes at 420. So easy, so amazing. You can also cook the broccoli in the oven that way, though it takes like 20 min at 380.

I work the artisan bread shift at a local bakery, so if you guys have any bread-related questions, I'm your dude.

Currently surviving on $10 lumberjack sandwiches from Safeway and multivitamins because I'm poor and sold out.

Favourite foods are basically anything Greek or Italian, especially ravioli. I'll eat your fucking hand if you throw some olives and feta cheese on there.

I keeping reading this thread title as "cookie thread." I recently had chocolate chip cookies made with almond flour. I haven't wanted to eat anything else since.

speaking of cookies I heard you can substitute butter for avocados which sounds amazing

I think you mean substitute avocados for butter, because the other way around makes me think of a fat kid eating guacamole made with butter.

What do you guys want to know about bread?

i feel like i am pretty good at cooking, but i don't enjoy it one bit, which is a shame as i really like eating.

someone mentioned kale, i could happily live on fried kale with soy sauce and garlic. you could also substitute kale for broccoli and i'd be happy.

My spice cabinet only consists of cinnamon, garlic powder, cumin, red pepper powder, paprika, and nutmeg. Literally every dinner I know how to cook starts off with sauteing some onions and garlic.  I like to make vegan sloppy joes with lentils, sweet potato and black bean chili with brown rice, split pea soup with hella cumin and some red pepper, white bean chili, pinto bean tacos, etc.  Basically, I eat almost only the same seven or eight very similar dishes for dinners.

You don't substitute all of the butter for avocado but just like half I believe because it makes the food healthier

man, Sketchward is right, you totally mean substitute avocado for butter.

substituting butter for avocado would mean like, making guacamole out of butter and that is fucking disgusting.

Rice cookers are good investments, but if you have a pot with a glass/clear lid, you can just keep an eye on the rice until you don't really see any moisture bubbling up from the rice anymore. After you turn off the heat, leave the lid on for 5 minutes. I've been making foolproof rice this way for a while.

I bought a slow cooker a year or so ago... I like the concept of them, but a lot of stuff that I've made with them turn out super bland and watery.  :-\

Seriously? There are so many internet people elbowing into conversations about cooking to yelp about how amazing and unhyperbolically life-saving their slow cooker is, I'd have thought slow-cookers can do no wrong!

we have a slow cooker we've used like twice and it doesn't seem very worthwhile.

I love sauteing some mushrooms, it used to be the only thing I knew how to make. I really like any kind of quick cook veggie thing. I'm not a very good or varied cook, though.

Dude, a skillet is the best for stuff like that. Any combination of veggies, plus some olive oil, salt, pepper, and heat, and it's yummy with minimal skill!

Totally where my skill tapers off, but if I'm cooking for myself, that leaves me with no room for complaints.
