So hi! I've never posted here and just thought to myself, why the hell haven't I?
V. quick back-story: I don't know how to cook but my husband is a wizard in the kitchen (he went to culinary school) so I eat extremely well and take pictures of the special things he makes.

I give you....

Yup, bacon roses.


2 year anniversary dinner - barbeque elk ribs, twice baked potatoes and various sauteed vegetables, all from the Portland farmer's market.


Valentine's Day meal - steak, mashed potatoes, various sauteed vegetables and garlic bread.


Kroketten (Dutch fast food) - deep fried meat ragu (usually beef) with various vegetables.


French onion soup with ciabatta


Stuffed pork chops - with bacon, onions and oven baked apples.


Stuffed bell peppers - with chicken, rice, onions and lots of cheddar and mozzarella.


Pulled pork sammich (not sandwich, sammich!)


Pulled pork pizza - my hubby's pulled pork on pizza with lots of cheese, bell peppers on tomato sauce with homemade pizza dough.


Veggie pizza - chantrelles, onions, bell peppers, cheese on tomato sauce with homemade pizza dough.


Cream puffs

Yum! And it's nice to see that someone else loves cheese as much as I do... :)

That's like asking me to pick which of my children I love more- what an impossible choice1 ;)

I always have fresh mozzarella, sharp cheddar, smoked Gouda, feta and dill Havarti hanging around...

Gorgeous pictures though, even under the cut, it's taking my browser forever to load them. :(

Not a biggie just a comment that I wanted to make. You can resize the pictures by clicking on each one individually and editing the horizontal size to 600 pixels.

In any case, those were some very tasty dishes. Your husband must be a talented chef and you're a very lucky lady to get to sample them all. :)

This is waaaaaaaaaay too heavy for my stomach... sorry, but I just can't imagine myself eating most of the food you presented... well, except for the veggie pizza.
I don't doubt the meals were delicious, just too much pork, and grease, and frying, and stuffing for my taste...

Jun. 27th, 2012 10:27 am (UTC)
Mmmmmmmm pork.

Would you believe that I don't normally eat pork? Ever since I was a kid I avoided to eat it, apart from occasional ham slice here and there... Which is not considered normal in my country, where whole roast pig is a popular item.

I can! I was vegetarian for almost years :p

I'm on my way to workout right now. Thanks to your pictures, I'm going to workout twice as hard and burn twice as many calories so that I can eat twice as much because this post just made me hella hungry. AAAUUGHH. :) Tell your husband it looks awesome!

Looks good. Only thing is that it also has that artery clogging look.
There's a lot of meat, potatoes and cheese, so I can tell this is more so regionally influenced dishes.
And some of these aren't well presented, though I don't doubt they taste amazing (cries).
For example, the Sammich looks like it's falling apart with the amount of meat and chopped variety stuffed inside, literally oozing and soaking up the bun, the pick holding it together hardly doing it justice.
The stuffed bell peppers look like they imploded with an array of questionable mush that what's inside would have to be detailed before the consumer assumes it pot pie in a vegetable.
The pulled pork pizza looks box sent, and the cream puffs are a powdered creamy mess.
(I used to be in culinary after having dinner with my cousin (NY chef) and Bourdain- needless to say I was influenced by his critique jabs, and disappointed in the Uni classes. So I apologize if I sound rude)

But I do know he probably just made these dishes for the hell of it, rather than 'perfecting' their appeal.

This looks more like a feast for people who work out frequently, to be consumed with a nice chilled beer, mmmmmm. Otherwise, if frequent motion isn't ones thing, it looks like they'd feel it slowing ebbing away along the walls of their stomach.

Although he could use less greasy oils that make his dishes shimmer (like the bacon and potato dishes- others I know it's due to camera flash), I think these look tasty,
and someone who finds a great pleasure in these kinds of food would literally kiss your husbands feet!
