The Chit Chat Cooking Contest - Sexed-Up Junk Food
30° 12′ 38″ N, 95° 45′ 2″ W
You can't rob Peter, Paul and Mary to pay yourself.
Do you like to impress your family and friends with your culinary skills, and win cool prizes? If so, then this contest is for you! Pdclose and I, along with Verkisto and MGBM, want you to submit your best culinary creation in one of five categories. Here are the details:
Make a delicious recipe for one of five categories: Main Dish, Side Dish, Dessert, Exotic Ingredient Dish, and Sexed-Up Junk Food. Take photos of your dish and post it in the geeklist created for each category. You can make multiple submissions. However, you can only submit a specific dish into one category. Include the recipe, or a detailed description. The recipe does not have to be your own. However, making the dish and photographing it must be your own work.
DEADLINE: Sunday, July 26 at 5pm CDT
Photos of each dish will be judged for qualities normally used for photography: composition, lighting, clarity of the subject, etc - independent of the dish's quality in its category. Photos for each entry will be judged as a group. So, the excellent quality of one photo might be offset by two average photos also included.
This geeklist is for Sexed-Up Junk Food.
Prizes: Here are the awards for the five categories, plus three special prizes:
8 GG reward:
Best Main Dish
Best Side Dish
16 GG reward:
Best Exotic (Juror Emeritus: MGBM)
Best Sexed-Up Junk Food (Juror Emeritus: Verkisto)
16 GG reward and "photography" microbadge:
25 GG reward and "I love to cook" microbadge:
Best in Show
30 GG reward:
Best Entry from an avatar-less boardmember
The winners in the first five individual categories will be considered for Best in Show. All entrants will be considered for Best Photography.
Good luck and have fun!
All engines full to awesome land!

Sol's Sexy Burger with Shroom
(ok I know, shit photography, sorry, but should be able to discern it)
The hamburger on that spread is normally eaten the normal way, but the gf in that particular night wanted to eat it with salad. But let's put the recipe
Sol's Sexy Burger
500g of grounded Rump cover
1/2 a bulb of garlic, grounded
150ml of Worcester Sauce
200g of grounded Blue Cheese (Roquefort is better, if not Stilton otherwise Gorgonzola)
100g+ of grounded Parmesan
25ml of Extra Virgin olive oil
about 25g between assorted chop onion, parsley
black pepper and salt for seasoning
On a big bowl spread the grounded meat around the borders, leaving the middle open. Put the leaves, garlic, the olive oil, the sauce and the Blue Cheese. Mix it all until it gets homogeneity. Moe it from there to a flat surface, and sprinkle part of the Parmesan, mix it well until you get on the consistency you want.
Get a few burgers from it and put it on the grill.
200g of sliced fresh common mushroom (Agaricus bisporus or champignon de Paris)
50g of salt-free butter
2 table spoons of soy sauce
2 table spoons of Dijon's Mustard
1 thin sliced chili pepper (without the seeds)
In a pan put the butter with about a teaspoon of olive oil. Add the shroom and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, until it gets really soft. Remove a bit of the excess water, add all the other ingredients and let it cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Alright, this is my entry for this category. The best, and only way to use Nilla wafers.
I shall call it -- The Nilla Wafer Chocolate Raspberry Surprise Cheesecake Ring (TNWCRSCR)

2 packages (8 oz each) softened cream cheese
¾ cup sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat cream cheese and eggs till light and fluffy. Add lemon juice and vanilla stir.
Take half the batter and add cocoa powder to taste.

Add chocolate cheesecake base.
Sprinkle with raspberries.
Layer rest of cheesecake batter on top.
Bake with foil for 30min at 375.

I've been lurking around BGG for a while, absorbing all the great game knowledge and loving the game-geeky community, mulling over how I can contribute to the site myself. When I saw these lists, I knew this was one spot I could fit right in. I love to cook and have a weakness for photographing my food.
When you were little, did you learn that our tongues can detect four separate flavors - salty, bitter, sour and sweet? It turns out there is a fifth "flavor element" - Japanese scientists discovered it over a century ago and named it "Umami."
Umami is the taste of YUM - the extra richness, zing, flavorfulness you get from aged meats and cheeses, savory mushrooms, soy sauce and sea weed, food that's broiled and roasted and grilled until has that "special something." It's the contribution from MSG that makes everything taste so good. The other night I wondered what would happen if I stuffed a pizza crust with umami overload, and I am here to tell you that this is a very, very good idea.
Take a ready-to-top pizza crust (I love corn meal crusts) and spread on a thin layer of ricotta cheese mixed with lemon zest (Meyer lemons if you can get 'em).
Top with: grilled portobello mushrooms brushed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil before grilling, grilled asparagus (I like to brush it with lemon-flavored olive oil, but not necessary).
Dot with chunks of blue cheese.
Bake according to the directions that came with your pizza crust, then remove from the oven and top with toasted walnuts and little leaves of fresh arugula.
Eat, savor, feel whole new areas of your tongue lighting up!
Well like everyone else I'll add an item to add mine. Though I didn't see anywhere where we had to add one lol
I did not have a working camera to take any pictures, however these two recipes are actually my own. lol Please enjoy
I have two. A side dish (soup) and a dessert (cake)
I'm glad it is ending on CDT otherwise I would of missed it as soon as I clicked on the list topic.
But here they are.....
Chicken vegetable mixer soup
ground chicken Store bought if you want
orange juice fresh
yellow bell pepper ripped
lavendar fresh (from spice jar)
oregano fresh (from jar)
red bell pepper ripped
Nepolitan Cactus drained
Directions: Fry and brown the chicken in a sauce pan, (Or saute it) Set aside. In another sauce pan, mix together, drained cactus, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, lavendar, oregano, and orange juice. Mix and simmer on medium heat until boiling, (roughly 4 minutes or so) and then CAREFULLY mix with chicken. Again, simmer on med until slightly boiling, and mix, then simmer on low, or turn off, and enjoy.
Lavender Spiced Cake
cake mix Plain/vanilla flavored
lavendar From spice jar (Or half the jar)
Add what you need to the mix and add half a cup of lavendar to the mix. Then Mix the mix a little bit and add the rest of the lavendar. Finish mixing the mix and pour and bake according to instructions.
For best results let cool in fridge over-night.
Depending on how much lavendar you use and how long you bake the cake and let cool, it should taste anywhere from Lemon (A real tasting lemon with lemon aroma) to Vanilla. I used Cream Cheese Frosting with mine.
