[Food] General Recipe Thread [Cooking] (8)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2021-03-15 02:34 ID:FVSD/xCO

On /req/ there was discussion of the need for a more general recipe thread than the old one merged from /food/, so I am creating one. Post any recipes you like here, easy or hard, simple or complex.

Let's start with a classic, Shakshuka.

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 large red pepper (bell pepper for milder heat, or a hotter variety, such as red horned pepper, depending on your heat preference), stems, seeds, and ribs removed, thinly sliced

  • 1 fresh small hot chili (such as jalapeño, serrano, or Fresno), stems, seeds, and ribs removed, thinly sliced

  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

To round out the simple side of things, this is what I'm making today:

Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

Ingredients
  • 3-4 pound pork roast, defrosted

  • 2 tsp coarse salt (1 tsp if using fine table salt)

  • Pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Put everything in a slow cooker or instant pot.

  2. Slow cook for 8 hours on low temperature or 4 hours on high. (The pork will release liquid and it won't burn.)

Do you like soup? Do you like Parmesean (or similar) cheese? Make a simple Parmesean soup! I don't have a recipe, but it's easy.

Take some soup stock. I usually use vegetable, since it's "neutral". You can just get this from a store to save time because making your own is a lot of effort. Pour it into a pot, salt the water ever so slightly and boil. You can dilute it a bit with fresh water if you wish, but it's not necessary. Once boiling, pour in a bit of pasta. I suggest using shell pasta because it's great for soup since it can hold the stock, meaning each bite tastes extra nice. As it cooks, shred in a decent amount of Parmesean into the pot. Only use real Parmesean, not the trash they sell in grocery stores that sit on a shelf. Don't add too much because you'll add more after. You can throw in a little chunk of butter if you'd like, but it's not necessary. Once the pasta has cooked to your desired tenderness, take a soup ladle and serve yourself a bowl. Shred a bit more Parmesean on the top, add some freshly cracked black pepper if you like this and enjoy! It's nice on its own but if you're the kind of person that likes to dip a cracker or some toast in, go for it.

It's delicious, takes very little time to cook, can be made for cheap (minus the cheese) and as I mentioned it's delicious. It's a nice sick day soup if you want a simpler but more flavourful soup than chicken noodle.

You'll never be a God. However, you can eat grilled cheese like one.

I was once a mortal, just like you, until I created God-level-grilled cheese.

Tomato soup–– especially the kind that doesn't come from a can — is always the right side for God-level-grilled cheese. It's not God-level if tomato soup isn't the side–– like, if the grilled cheese is Jesus, then the tomato soup is all 12 disciples.

You must cook on low. Dad would cringe, however, this is extremely important, as you cannot rush greatness.

But Dad had it right with the way he butters the cast iron, with that old-fashioned butter. None of that salt-free, "healthy," chemically-modified margarine crap. Just regular, not-good-for-you, salty butter.

if you want to play on this level, you must use fresh Challah bread. You must respect the Challah and know how to cut the Challah–– not too thick, not too thin.

Help me choose a new hobby (102)

1 Name: Maredsous : 2006-04-29 07:07 ID:Wl7genXi

I just started to look at this site and decided this place might be a good place to ask a serious question with anonymity. I have a small problem. I'm 23 and my two main interests, video games and anime/manga, are started to become boring to me. After so much exposure, more than enough for a lifetime even, I think I should truly move on and look for something new.

I talked with some of my friends and a couple ideas sparked my interest. Here's a short list of ideas I have that I've liked so far:
Target shooting w/rifles
Archery
Beer brewing
Boxing

I've thrown out hobbies like photography and music(anything related) due to general apathy. I'd like something that would keep me somewhat active (why archery and boxing are there), but would like something that can be truly affected by changes that I can make (why rifles and beer brewing are there). I tend to like the idea of messing around with something to make it better, which is why I liked playing some cRPGs and some racing games with tuning. I like beer and wine, but I'm not exactly sure I'd want to suffer through the experimentation of making my own. Boxing sounds fun, but would be tough to find space for the stand and bag. Rifle shooting sounds like the best option, but I don't have the money for what I want yet (I liked the feel of the Ruger Mini-14 which is ~$600).

HEMA (historical european martial arts).
It's just every kind of swordfighting grouped into one.
Longswords, rapiers, sabres, arming swords and more of all styles and eras. Try to find a local club. A (training) sword is $200 and the safety equipment is a few hundred, but you only need that once you move onto sparring.

97 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2023-01-04 15:32 ID:k46jLrzA

Hey OP. Definitely try archery! It's a very fun hobby. All you need is a target and now.

For a target, you can buy something like old hay bales and old rug (so the arrows don't go through and kill anyone) set against a fence or wall. But ideally, you can order a target off of Amazon or somewhere.

For a bow, you determine what kind you want. Modern? Traditional? Recurve? Then you find the size and what is called the weight. Search online for more info on this. I personally use traditional Korean horse bows, one from Kaya: https://horsebowshop.com/collections/kaya-korean-traditional-bows

It's hard at first and takes a while to learn how to properly shoot. You'll miss a lot. But in time you'll become the best archer in the land. You can also join an archery club at some point where you'll have access to a lot of targets to use and can get pro tips for shooting. Have fun if you decide to try it!

Shortwave Radio/SWL/DXing (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2024-01-18 19:29 ID:LIDFfF1u

Is there anyone else who likes to listen to shortwave radio? Either listening to regular old shortwave programs or listening to oddities like beacons, weather & time signals, over the horizon radars, data transmissions, of course the famous number stations and so on?I've loved this hobby for many years and have owned a lot of radios, but just casual interest which meant I would usually sell the radios eventually.

I recently bought a little handheld (Tecsun PL-680) and plan to build a good longwire antenna outside, buy a few more little portables (like pocket sized) and buy a SDR at some point since having access to waveforms and waterfalls on the software would be nice, though I still prefer actual radios. Unfortunately I live in a city with millions of people and have some high voltage powerlines right outside my flat so that fucks reception, but I still plan to build a new antenna.

This week I was not listening much, but I did manage to pull in a Korean radio station (which is impressive, since there is a lot of jamming there), something from India and a Chinese station, but I don't know which one. Of course there is always Brother Stair and other batshit insane religious folks and a lot of right-wing preppers/MAGA/retards that pollute the radiowaves. The other night I listened to some woman who sounded like she had been smoking since she was 10 years old, talking about how Joe Biden was a pedophile and the usual crazy nonsense that crowed of people is obsessed with. That stuff is not interesting at all but unfortunately the signals for that are strongest in North America. Ever since stations like Voice of America and Radio Canada International stopped broadcasting on shortwave...most of what you hear is that sort of garbage.

2 Name: Anonymous Hobbyist : 2024-01-31 23:24 ID:LIDFfF1u

I've been listening a lot lately since I have a flu or something, so I've heard a lot of fun stuff. I had some morse code station one night. I didn't bother to translate it, but I'm sure it would just be gibberish to me anyway. I also heard HM01, the number station run by G2, better known as Dirección de Inteligencia which is Cuba's foreign intelligence agency. Tonight I've had WRMI on in the background while I play an MMO. They had some music at times, then some weird pro-vegan sermon from this well known Vietnamese cult leader Ching Hai. After a new program came on which was just some retard paranoid right wing prepper American guy who started rambling on about World War 3 and shit hitting the fan soon so I turned it off. Tuned into 9330 and I think it's some Portuguese show. I can't understand it.

Also I've listened to Radio Nikkei a lot. This is actually a great way to practice Japanese if you have been trying to learn it. They have a lot of talk radio programs so it's nice to listen in if you can manage to tune in such a distant station. The talk radio is good for vocabulary practice and shit. I think they also have a program for Japanese people to learn English. I've never caught that one but it's probably entertaining to listen to if you do.

You could get a nice introduction buying a cheap handheld receiver for very little money and scan the shortwave bands that way. Reception depends on your antenna, but the built in one is sufficient to get started. There are other ones you can build for cheap, such as what we call a longwire antenna. It is as the name implies: a real long wire you connect to it. Well, there's more to it but you can really just attach a bit of speaker wire to one and you'll hear a lot more.

Or what a lot of people do now is just use WebSDR aka Software Defined Radio. This works using a little digital receiver that basically has its "ears" open to a shit ton of frequencies, from a few MHz to GHz. A device like this can be bought for as little as 30-40 USD and is super cool, but requires its own antenna. However there are a lot of WebSDR websites available. Here's one located in Georgia, USA which is I guess run by a high school radio club. Try it out, click around and see what you can tune in. It will let you hear everything from FM radio, shortwave, amateur/ham radio to I think even things like satellites.

I liked to watch a guy in the apartment complex I used to live at. He lived in the building across the parking lot and never closed his blinds and kept his lights on all night. He would stay up most of the night on the computer. I would keep my blinds cracked open and the lights off and keep an eye on him while I dicked around on the internet. I think he noticed one night when I tried to take a picture of him and forgot to turn off the flash because he moved out soon after

You must be a youngin'. Back in the day, every city published these huge books with tens of thousands of phone numbers, names and addresses of every resident and business. You could opt out by writing them, but most people didn't bother. Nobody really cared either, because people were a lot less crazy. If you told someone in 1994 you "found" their number, they'd be like yeah so?

Chemistry (9)

1 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-01-29 11:55 ID:8G7cr9zd

Any of yall into chemistry? I've been thinking about picking up chemistry and electronics as a hobby. The only problem I have is that I neither have much room for a lab nor would I have the possibility of installing a decent fume hood. Do you have suggestions?

2 Name: chemist : 2016-02-18 13:27 ID:LgoHcVp3

It would be cool if somebody wrote a program that could simulate all the chemical reactions so they can performed in (virtual) safety without the worry of blowing yourself up or poisoning yourself. If you mixed cesium hydroxide with hydrofluoric acid in reality you might get yourself killed.

3 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2016-02-27 16:11 ID:f+2+yXQw

There are hackerspaces almost everywhere around europe and in the US, if you decide to get into electronics i can really recommend atleast checking it out when you decide to build something. I sacrificed some space at home for such things but also have access to a lab in a university if i need some more advanced stuff.

The safety and perhaps the financial concern are good arguments but I think it would be kinda dumb. Apart form not gaining anything physical from it, we can only go so far with it. After all, we have to explore the science IRL first to implement it into the program and furthermore aren't there many variables to real chemistry like purity of the substance, quality of the tools etc?

5 Name: chemist : 2016-03-12 15:05 ID:5krA2BAV

>>4
Well the simulator would obviously assume you are using the best tools and purest substances. Though you may be right about having to do it in real life to find out what would really happen. From what I heard if you mix ammonia with bleach it will give off chlorine gas, something that would be better done in a simulator than attempting in reality. Likewise with other chemical reactions that would produce toxic fumes or explosions. They can even make it so the simulator will tell you that "you have died" if you do something that would end up getting yourself killed.
