I don't know about you, but there are a few ingredients I love to to cook with and almost everything I do cook has some variation of them; bacon fat or bacon, garlic, black pepper or some version of peppers (green, red, jalapeno, etc.) and olive oil.

When I make steak/ground sirloin, lobster/fish/shrimp, ribs (pork or beef), lamb roast or chops, veal parm or cutlets, sausage (pork or beef), turkey, ham or roast beef, I have to season them with lots of garlic, pepper and bacon fat and I almost always fry them in olive oil.

Occasionally, I will go off the deep end and deep fry them in vegetable oil. I usually have a bowl of jalapenos and a sour cream sauce handy.

My favorite vegetables are corn on the cob, broccoli, potatoes, cauliflower, black beans, tomatoes and vidalia onions.

Usually, I prepare some angel hair pasta, spaghetti or rice.

Rosemary, garlic, parsley & liquid smoke for the meats.

Most things can use some onions and mushrooms....or cheese.

Bacon is for "Fancy" along with green onions!

I'm huge on cauliflower, cabbage, beans and broccoli or brussel sprouts.
Altho corn on the cob never goes to waste around here!

Liver, limburger cheese and most organ meat can be kitty food....I'm weird that way.

Garlic and Olive oil are outstanding ingredients.
Salt & Pepper are exciting and indispensable as well.

Garlic, Onions, Spring Onions, and Mushrooms..... my cooking staples!
And I do like trying to get away with putting bacon in nearly everything too... be crazy not to


And of course if you cook up some bacon, you HAVE to use the bacon fat! It's the only sane thing to do. Can't be wasting that.

Yep!
Garlic, onions, mushrooms,
& wild leeks/ramps in season.
Himalayan sea salt & freshly ground black pepper.
Olive oil or organic coconut oil.
We're trying to eat as healthy as we can.

Around here we use young, spring dandelion greens & wilt them with hot bacon grease,
with a little apple cider vinegar mixed in it.
Then add sliced green onions, tomato,
crumbled bacon & salt & pepper. Yum!

Ah, the House Superfoods!

Garlic, lots of it; mushrooms, wind up in most things somehow; bacon

With just those three ... you've got a pita wrap if you add some cream.

Avocado, generally mashed on the side; squash and corn, depending on season

whatever veggies happen to be on sale/inseason but chayote, cauliflower, radish, carrot, celery, turnip tend to feature prominently

Fresh herbs. Even in the winter.

I grow my own herbs. I love going out the back door and just grabbing some while I'm cooking.
Even in winter I can get parsley and rosemary .
It connects me with the ancestors who picked their food in the yard and not at a store.

So fresh herbs are on my list of favs.

I like to add a bit of anchovy paste to the sauce on shrimp scampi.

I add butter to sauces after I take them off the stove because it gives them a nice mouth feel.

I like using cream and wine.

Oh hell ..I love to cook and I really love to eat.

Oh that's scary we wrote the same thing at almost the same time.

I think if it wasn't for elections we'd be good friends on here Mason.

I forgot the cooking alcohol cabinet.

Liquor store guy must think I'm a lush. I am always through buying the little caddies of red and white wine bottles sized out in 8 oz servings. Then there is the craft stout for the cheese sauces ...

I would like to cook all politicians with some fresh herbs.

(And I did give you a funny mention here)

Not sure anything would make that taste palatable ...

Why not just chop them into chum?

Oh well, you don't need herbs for that.

Just some handy butcher's twine and that lava lake in Hawaii.

Long slow cooking and if that doesn't work there's ketchup.

I think everyone posting in the thread knows that it is satire.
