    Great thread guys. I love to cook, but find that I am not very good at it. I try, but more often than not, I fail. Every once in awhile things will go just right, and it's really a great feeling. Food tastes better when you have labored for it a little.

    I've been trying to eat healthier lately. I have been a huge red meat eater and I'm trying to cut back and incorporate some salmon, shrimp, and other sea urchins into my diet. Anyone have any good (as always, cheap) recipes for fish other than salmon?

    Sorry cdash, everything I cook is vegetarian. Made some good ricotta cheese tortellini with vodka sauce and fake meatballs last night.

    I thought Btown was a vegetarian! I made my lady friend a sandwich inspired off of the Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food" Fried Seasoned Sweet Potatoes with fake Sausage smothered with Macaroni and Cheese on a Mayo and Mustard Bun. She loved it.

    I had a bite and it was okay but she claims it is the best sandwich she has ever had, which I find suspect considering the sandwiches I've made for her in the past, but I made her another one later that night and she downed it in half the time so.... Go figure.

    I do a lot of vegetarian stuff like that where I just throw together whatever I have.

    My favorite cookbook is a vegetarian cookbook. It's called "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone". It is massive, with hundreds and hundreds of recipes. It is also very cheap. I recommend it to even the most devoted meat eaters.

    Another big hit with the Vegans, so probably vegetarians as well, is Biscuits and Gravy.

    Its such a warm and filling comfort food, its hard to replace. It took a while to perfect on a vegan level since you can't use milk for the gravy or biscuits and you have to use fake butter... anyway.

    Brown a little fake sausage, fennel, pepper, red pepper flakes. Mix 1/4 cup of butter and a lot of flour together until it becomes a paste then add THAT into the browned sausage. Add in milk (or unsweetened Soymilk) slowly so that the butter roux mixes up well and eventually, if done right, you will get gravy. If you've never made gravy before definitely look up directions. But anyway, its amazing if you're only eating pastas and vegetables to change it up with this dish.
