Cooking is such a fun, creative pastime. The precision mixed with the on-your-feet thinking creates room for fun and the unexpected.

Everybody has a favorite dish and wants to try and recreate it. And if they're into cooking, they can try!


u/mysh***yluck asked:

What do you really want to try to cook?

Here were some of those answers.


You Mean To Tell Me A Crab Fried That Rice

I know this may sound stupid, but I really want to learn how to make wicked fried rice that rivals restaurants.

Every time I've tried, I've failed. It is "ok", but often it falls very short of my local Thai place.. man.. they make a wicked good crab fried rice.

I want to be able to casually make that.

¿Que está?

All the media I consumed as a youth lead me to believe that cooking a Soufflé and having it not deflate or whatever is extremely difficult. So one day I'd like to try, problem is, is that I don't know what a Soufflé is.

Every year my mom and I try something fancy for Christmas dinner. We've made boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin. This year we're doing homemade ravioli because I've always wanted to try pasta from scratch but I've been intimidated by the effort. We're making 4 types: ricotta and spinach, sage and sausage, crab and shallot, and porcini mushroom. And we're also doing a classic tomato sauce, a vodka sauce, a butter thyme sauce, and an alfredo. I made 3 of the fillings today. I'm already exhausted.

Croquet?

I've been wanting to make a croquembouche for Christmas for more than 10 years, but something always gets in the way. Maybe next year :(

It Takes Forever

Indian food like a korma but from scratch. All the spices are just so expensive and everything needs to slow cook...

Gender: A Thing Of The Past

Not sure if baking goals count, but I want to make my own fortune cookies. I think it'd be fun to incorporate custom ones into parties. Use them to assign White Elephant numbers or write something very specific to the group coming over. Maybe if a friend wants a different gender reveal treat than cupcakes filled with blue or pink frosting.

I once saw this dessert on a baking programme and I've always wanted to try it. It was like a strawberry swiss roll which they chopped into slices. They placed the slices so that they completely covered a bowl. Then they made strawberry mousse and filled the swiss roll bowl with it. I remember it looking so tasty!

A Bit Of A Challenge

Murukku. I used to have it as a kid but I haven't had it in years (at least a decade). It requires some speciality ingredients I don't normally use and I recently acquired all the ingredients and tools to make it. I have some time off next week so I'm going to try then.

An Allergy Friendly Dinner

Gluten free pasta made from scratch, I'm gluten and dairy intolerant (massively) but I really want to make eggs Florentine inspired ravioli. Or make an amazing chicken liver pate, or both.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
