Do any of you guys like beans? I cannot get enough black beans every time I go home. You can mash them and eat them with tortillas, chips, or bread or you can eat them whole with rice. They're also healthy. Here's a recipe for frijoles volteados (not mine):

tbihome.org/cgi-bin/recipe.pl?read=473

I was in Guatemala this summer for about a week and I think I ate beans and eggs for almost every meal.


I am also a fan of black beans. I usually eat them whole with rice and chicken or fish.
I gotta try that recipe.

I love black beans. My favorite bean. Way more distinctive flavor than most beans.

I'm also a huge fan of beans and cornbread. Any beans, not just the traditional pinto beans. You can usually find an 8, 10, or 12 bean mix that's pretty good. Black eyed peas are pretty awesome too.


When I was in college, the fraternity steward (the guy in charge of helping the cook come up with the menu and buy the food) was almost impeached over a meal of hamhock and beans with cornbread. I guess all those city boys didn't love it like he did. We had a pot about the size of a 5-gallon bucket FULL of beans and a couple trays of cornbread. He and I were the only ones that would eat it and we had it at every meal for a week. I was in heaven because I LOVE that sh*t, but my roommates hated me for a long time.

Spiced Pig ( a little different but damn good)

Ingredients:

1 - 3 to 4 lb pork tenderloin

Glaze
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup dried apples ( I use fresh)

For Loin
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup apple jelly
1/4 cup honey

For glaze:
In saucepan, combine honey, maple syrup and cinnamon. Heat thru. Add apples and cook uncovered over med-low heat for 10 min., stirring occasionally. Set aside

Loin prep:

Trim off fat. Cut into loin, not thru, like a hot dog bun (or butterfly), thelength of the loin. spread open. Spread glaze over the loin and close it up (fold over).

Combine chili powder, paprika, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Rub over the outside of loin.

In a small saucepan, melt apple jelly and honey. This is used to baste the meat during the last 10 minutes of cooking

In a covered grill (charcoal is what I prefer), grill the meat over indirect heat ( I use a drip pan to catch droppings). Grill for 1/2 to 2 hrs (depending heat. Initial time I did this recipe it took only 45 minutes, the second time it took a little over an hour. meat thermometer (if used) should register 160 degrees.

I've tried a few different ways to make a deep dish at home ... this seems like it should work, and one I'm going to try :

Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza Recipe

on the east coast, they call thick crust pizza deep dish, which is just wrong ... even the Pizzeria Uno chain doesn't do it quite right as their crust is too thick, and much thicker than the Chicago restaurant ... but, in a pinch, it's the best option

My favorite italian sausage is Louis Rich Turkey Italian Sausage. The shit is so good and not fatty at all. I will try that recipe above.

I love that Boris is necromancing a lot of these original Lounge threads.

Since I've become a diabetic my diet has slightly changed. My go-to luxury snack is a spoonful of peanut butter, and my favorite food in general is chili. Make chili (or variations thereof) year-round.

I try various things often for crust. I have used the bread machine (yes I still have one and use it) which works pretty well. I have used frozen bread dough, also had success. Tried many homemade recipes and found you actually have to get the water to the temp suggested and that makes the biggest difference. Made one that included honey and it was damn good.
