When cooking, what other people can do? For me, cooking is not just about cooking, it's about combining your other favorite activities, like playing games.

I like cooking. I also love video games. Some great people have created a series of recipes focused around food from different games. I have tried some of these, and they are delicious. They are ranked according to difficulty level and you can glance to select and choose from different games.

I just tried Sims 2 Mac & Cheese at night and it was delicious, and quite easy, too. Put a truly unique spin on everything. Some mixed drinks are also great if you drink smile.gif

It would be great if people could combine their favorite activities in the same job.

Do you have a link to the lists you've mentioned?

I almost bought the Game of Thrones cookbook but then I heard someone say that the food wasn't that great so I've avoided it, Haha!

What is the difference between Sims 2 Mac & Cheese and the usual Mac & Cheese?

Presumably the portion size is tiny.

A pot to match the amount of food you need to cook will save you a lot of money. So how to choose a pot of your own accord.

I make homemade candy every year for friends and family for the holidays. Every year I use my moderately sized duck pot. And every year I have trouble getting the candy thermometer to read the correct temperature. I think this is due to the wide base of the pot, and the liquid does not reach very high in the pot so my thermometer can just be one submerged in the liquid.

I need a pot with a smaller base but higher than your average pot of sauces. As with the height I have now, as the liquid begins to boil, it goes right up to the belt, sometimes it even goes through which makes a sticky hard to clean mess for me.

Although I have searched in so many stores, I have not been able to find a good pot. Where do you shop for a pot?

This is definitely one of the more unique threads on Buzzjack.

I am guessing you like cooking things with mint in them hence your username, blackmint?

You must be one of the few in the world who hasn't heard of Game Of Thrones ohmy.gif (although I am sure many in the forests of Papua New Guinea/Brazil rainforest/African and South East Asian tribal areas, Inuit areas and the Amish areas haven't heard of it as less people watch TV/use the internet there). Sometimes I do envy these groups as life may be a happier one without technology for entertainment.

There are many famous chefs who are influential in the contemporary world.

I am a big fan of a British cooking duo called The Hairy Bikers - a link for anyone not to hear about them.

They have done many different things - baking, dieting, foreign cuisine - but what I like about them is their recipes approach. They are actually just two cyclists with a passion for cooking and what they make reflect that. I have their Curry book and I do not think I have found a recipe that requires anything I can not get in my local supermarket.

That's what I have, then what about you? Let me know what you have to study and share!

Cooking books give us special recipes that are hard to tell. So if you have more cookbooks then you will be more successful with the housewife.

I now own about 5 cooking books, two of which are vegetarian cookbooks, while the other is just a cookbook. I very rarely refer to the cookbook, though. If I have not cooked or baked something for a long time, and I'm thinking of doing it again, then I will mention one of my cookbook books for help. If I'm thinking of trying a new recipe, here's where a cookbook is also useful.

When looking through recipes in my cookbook, I often find that each cookbook has a different way to do the same dish. Then I will have to decide which one is the easiest to do, because some recipes tend to be more complicated than others. There are also times I will follow the recipe for the most part, but also add my own touch to it.

How about you, how many cookbooks do you have?

There are a number of cookbooks lying around this house but none of them are mine (although one or two were bought as gifts by me, funnily enough) and I never look at them. I always wish I was more of a foody person than I am (I do cook a bit) because it would make me feel more dynamic and cultured as a person (I was called "cultural" by my ~companion~ recently though which was pleasing). Basically my ideal self cooks the most wonderful fancy meals. I am not my ideal self.

I was gonna say one, but this reminds me that I don't recall bringing it with me when I moved, so I might have zero now.

With a good smell hood, the kitchen will always ensure the freshness and health of family members.

There are many brands on the market, Electrolux, Elba, Faber, Teka, Bosch, Pacific, Pacifica, Gorenje, Napoliz and more. This is a discussion after reading and doing your own research, you decide which is the best.

Most end users will think that a good hat is a powerful hood but that is not 100% true.
A good cooker hood should have:
1) Easy to clean and maintain
2) A good filter system with oil cup
3) Low noise level
4) Reasonable suction power (1000m3 / h or more)

Let me know your thoughts on this issue!

There are many writers who write great cookbooks, have you ever heard of them? Through whom do you find yourself most interested in books or writers?

I also like browsing the cookbook, but my favorite writer is Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall with the River Cottage series.

These books are visually compelling, with great pictures and fun notes. Hugh wrote an interesting preface to each section, describing his personal experience. The recipes are generally simple but delicious and focus on using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

For good cooking, you will need to go through some challenging times in the long run. So why not rely on the experience of the go ahead to develop it to new heights?

How to know raw or cooked meat? To solve this problem, there must be a meat thermometer.

Whenever I and our boyfriend cook, we are scared of eating raw meat so we let our meat cook longer so I'm sure we need it. We went out and bought a meat thermometer and let me tell you that it saved us! We do not have cooked meat because of it and it is good to know that your cooking only needs the right temperature.

Meat thermometers are my favorite stuff, and what about humans, what tools do you use to get a barbecue?

I bought one the Xmas before last but returned it to Argos after Christmas. They're not necessary and didn't seem very accurate to me.
