Just curious, as an American, how would you pronounce that?

Anyway you want :D most of the time its wors-she-shir.

Haha, the pronunciation of the original area in England that it's named after is more like WOOS-tuh-shure.

Reminds me of Belvoir Castle in the Midlands. "Belvoir" is properly pronounced as "Beaver". :lol:

I made confit byaldi, the ratatouille recipe from the movie, yesterday. It took about 45 minutes of preparation and 2½ hours in the oven, but was so worth it. Unfortunately I couldn't get ahold of yellow summer squash, so I just used an extra courgette.

I made some pizza today. With home made pizza bread. I usually just use a store bought one since it's pretty much the same and I am lazy. This one was a bit fluffier though :lol: .

(and yes, two pieces are considerably larger and one piece is missing. This is all intentional)

Looking through this thread, some of you guys are amazing cooks! I'd like to think of myself as a decent cook, but honestly my boyfriend's cooking absolutely puts mine to shame so here's a pic of some pasta he made today. Don't ask what's in it cause I don't know :lol: , all I know is there's tofu in it cause he's vegan. He also takes very aesthetically pleasing pics of his food, actually I'd say he takes nicer photos of his food than he does of me - but we'll save that rant for another thread haha.

Edit: Spinach and garlic pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, tofu and tahini sauce, I have been informed.

If the three of us were together I’d have divided it into six glasses! These four are for two days between the two of us.

Every time I get really into a new dish, I make it over and over until I get cocky and start eyeballing everything, and eventually it goes disastrously wrong and I never want to make it again.

The other day I made pancakes and for some reason I put in a teaspoon of salt instead of a quarter teaspoon. I had to soak it in syrup just to choke it down.

Do you have any family recipes passed down to you womenfolk? Or did you come from one of those white people homes where everything is microwaved and Sunny D passes as orange juice?

The latter. My mom used to serve me scrambled eggs cooked in the microwave.

Cooking skipped a generation, but I have one recipe of my grandma‘s which is one of my favourites. She also gave me an English language Czechoslovak cookbook printed in the 50s from which I’ve adapted several recipes (to be vegetarian, or more contemporary — my God, did they use bucketloads of lard back then!).

Well, the first time I made it I basically just deconstructed it by taste from the one I had at a restaurant and then tried to replicate what I thought it was. In that case I didn’t add honey so it was even less sweet (and it’s already not a terribly sweet dessert) and I didn’t toast the oats, so it had less flavour.

I have some recipes that go back at least as far as both grandmothers. Although it's hard to say precisely how far back they actually go (when did my grandmothers start making them?). Past this, I have a recipe notebook my mother had, plus her old copy of Fannie Farmer (probably her staple cookbook).

That said...it's been a long time since I even tried making any recipe from when I was young.

Although, oddly, I was wondering about one thing earlier... I have a caramel roll recipe, and I was thinking of that, and wondering what would happen if the cream it calls for was replaced with a healthier non-dairy alternative?

Or did you come from one of those white people homes where everything is microwaved


Actually, we didn't even have a microwave. It was one of those things my parents never got around to getting. They weren't common when my parents got married. They became common as I was growing up, but expensive for a long time. They were cheap by the time I was college aged, but I don't think my mother had much interest. We talked about it once, and my attitude was why bother?

We also sat down to dinner each night. And frozen dinners were not a staple. Although my mother did use convenience products sometimes, (e.g., spaghetti made with a spice package for seasoning). And many recipes were probably fast to make. The stuff I remember the most fondly were a few things here and there that were occasional, not routine day-to-day fare. Except some baked goods (for which I should have the recipes, but haven't made in years).

Interesting how that happens. I've heard of that happening in other families, too.

my God, did they use bucketloads of lard back then!


I can imagine...

One of my grandmothers really loved her fat, including lard, and shortening (back then I'm thinking it was loaded with trans fat). It is no surprise to me that she had heart issues towards the end of her life.
