What do you serve with steak?

I love this thread! I like to make a warm pasta salad with lemon artihoke pesto or sundried tomato pesto and whatever else I have around the house ( crispy chopped prosciutto, sauteed shallots, roasted red peppers, capers, etc)

Hey guys, so I'm going to start posting links to recipes from Pinterest that I have tried in here, that will make it easier for people to be able to come to this thread and find pinned recipes that have been tested at once instead of having to view several people's boards at once I think.

Perfect white cake: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/397161260860738762/

I tried this with fantastic results. This is now my go to recipe for homeade vanilla cake. I added a bit of homeade pudding mix: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/39716126...

to make it moist, and I forget exactly what the method is called but it's where you incorporated the dry ingredients with the butter before adding the liquid, in order to ensure moistness. Highly recommend!

I can post the links later but off the top of my head, the Zuppa Toscona Soup, Best Ham Sandwiches Ever, Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip cookies w/ Sea Salt, Glorious Treat's Chocolate cupcakes with peppermint cream cheese frosting, and the Lemon Herb and Prosciutto Chicken Recipes have all been winners for me ( although I admittedly I used peices of bone-in chicken instead of a whole roasted chicken, I like doing that because you can sear the peices of meat before finishing it in the oven). Once I have more time I will post the links and post some more recipes. I'm going to try at least a few each week!

Oh, just remembered another one: Martha's Perfect Mac and cheese and the Levain chocolate chip cookie recipes! Used Gruyere and some good quality Vermont cheddar. I like adding mozzarella, bacon, and roasted red peppers to the mac and cheese recipe and use fresh bread for the bread crumb topping. PHENOMENAL.

The best way to season chicken?

I've found that my chicken breasts always come out the most moist when i pat them dry, coat them in a bit of olive oil, and then rub on the spices!

i love this! i dont need to lose weight but probably will if i don't start making some changes soon lol ( I ate nearly a whole french baguette by myself today that was stuffed in prosciutto and drowned in butter and gatorade even though that was all pretty much all i ate today my stomach is still rumbling with guilt... oh the life of a college student, lol). I do actually really love lean meats and fresh fruits and veggies, so I look forward to reading the recipes posted here and reading your success stories :)

What are you baking these days? February 2014 edition! [Through February 28, 2014]

just to clarify: The link I provided above from Glorious Treats is for peppermint cream cheese frosting. I used these to sprinkle on the cooled cupcakes before piping on the frosting: http://bakingbites.com/2012/11/andes-peppermint-crunch-baking-chips-reviewed/

and have used all three of these recipes with excellent results, the frosting is very complimentary:

I found almost some andies peppermint bark on clearance at Target, and made these: http://www.glorioustreats.com/2010/12...

I haven't tried the actual cupcake recipe listed but have used recipes for chocolate velvet cake, and also the class "Darn good chocolate cake" from the cake mix doctor when I am too pressed for time to make them from scratch

These are now some of my FAVORITE cupcakes to make ever. The chocolate, tanginess of the cream cheese, and coolness of the peppermint complete each other perfectly, and the andes peppermint candy adds the perfect sweetness and crunch. Several people have told me they are the best cupcakes they've ever had, and I'm sure you could make it into cake form too.

Roasting a Chicken - am I doing too much?

I am trying to learn the art of the perfect roasted chicken. I'm young so maybe it just takes experience, but the first time I tried a brine the meat came out stringy, I didn't care for it at all. The next time the meat came out pretty juicy, but the skin was rubbery because I was afraif to uncover the chicken for fear of it being dry. Does anyone have any tips?
