Oooh oohh food!
I love to cook!
I'm surprised no one has bashed American food yet. And yes, it exists, and it is good. American food is mostly in casseroles and stews and breads. Well, and meat.
I love mole
-- it is a Mexican dish made with ground up spices (including, often, chocolate) and served on chicken or enchiladas
or something. Mole rojo, mole negro, mole verde -- anything but that awful mole poblano
. Don't get me wrong, I like Puebla and the people from there; they just don't know jack about good mole. Probably drink it down with that fake champorado drink.
Oh yeah, love horchata
Home-made macaroni and cheese.
The best I ever had was about a year ago. My wife and I had all these random left-over cheeses we didn't know what to do with. So we used most of them in the casserole. You've got to overcook the noodles so they are soft. The finishing touch was small pieces of Philadelphia cream cheese stuck in at intervals...
Properly made baked beans -- no funny flavors, just onion, beans, bacon.
Properly made cole-slaw -- no mayonaise!
Properly made rice pudding -- no random additions like raisins and cinnamon, etc.
Man, I'm getting hungry.
Spinach and collared greens.
Popcorn balls, from-scratch brownies, peanut-butter-chocolate-rice crispies yum yums,
Last I had was a lemon-meringue one at the very good Vincentown Diner about an hour and a half north of where I live.
Not-from concentrate orange juice, with pulp, every morning.
