My grandma gave me a recipe for chicken. It uses a crockpot. Put some chicken breasts into the crockpot. Add 1/2 cup ketchup. Add 1 can Diet Coke. Turn on the crockpot. Wait.

This was delish, and it made quite a dish.

Avidly. Used to do it for a living in Florida.

Cut one large eggplant into 1/4" pieces, lengthwise
Sprinkle with salt and let brown bitter liquid drain out
Marinate in salt, pepper and a liberal amount of balsamic vinegar
Bake at 350 until eggplant is dark bown and very tender

While baking:
Fold fresh thyme and oregano into some goat cheese

After eggplant has cooled, put some of the goat cheese on the eggplant slice and roll the eggplant around it like a crepe.

Enjoy.

First, you empty the baggie or cap

Second, you dump it into a spoon and add fire

Third, you suck it up into a syringe and inject like so

You might end up like this

More than likely, it'll be this

Wow!

Dear Angry Dragon,

You and your glorious post have reminded me why there are such things as the internet, message boards, Google image search, and..well... electricity. I thank you.

Truly heartfelt,

Mark

I am very, very enthusiastic about cooking. Unfortunately I am also still very bad at it, as it is a fairly recent enthusiasm of mine. I have a crockpot, like LinusVP, and it is fantastic. I would even go as far as to call it "amazing" as it turns otherwise seemingly-incongruous ingredients into fantastic meals that not only can I enjoy, but my girlfriend can eat without causing her somewhat turbulent stomach any distress. Salut, crockpot.

As such however, I have no recipes to add at this time but I fully intend on trying the ones in this - and the other - thread. Thank you, Electricalites.

I love cooking...been too busy to do much as of late.

But here's a recipe that I have often enjoyed:

Ingredients ->
1 lb of Sea Scallops(the big'ns)
Fresh Garlic
Parmesean Cheese(freshly grated is preferable if not necessary)
Thinly sliced vine ripened tomatoes(optional)
Dill(fresh preferable but not necessary)
Black Pepper(any color will do)
Olive Oil
Butter
Lemon
Parsley(fresh)
Dry White Wine
Romane Salad with Cucumber Slices

Chop the garlic, Dill and parsley and mix in a bowl with olive oil. Wash and dry the Scallops and coat them with the mixture. This recipe works best if you own cast iron cookware as you will be broiling the scallops for most of the cooktime. Heat up your broiler. Coat your skillet with a little butter and heat it up real warm like on the range(medium i guess). Toss in your scallop mixture...try to arrange your scallops in a way so that they take up most if not all of your pan. Fry them for about 3 minutes. Take off heat and splash with the white wine, add pepper to your taste. cover scallops with your optional tomato slices and already grated cheese. Put under broiler and flame till the cheese becomes a nice golden brown crust. Take out of broiler and drain the excess liquid(some call it broth, others call it pan drippin's...I call it goodness) Try to cool down the "goodness" while you are transfering the scallops to your prepared salads. Drizzle with "goodness" and fresh lemon juice. Savagely devour.

The relationship immediately prior to that one was very short lived, and pretty much devoid of any interaction other than a range of sexual activities, including several that might fall under the "gourmet" or "glutton" mastheads. Let's just say I was probably her most significant source of protein.

Wow that sounds absolutely revolting. No. I'm not going to `just try it.'

Ketchup is disgusting. Diet Coke is disgustinger.

Dude, you have that right.

Why not throw in some paint-thinners and blu-tak for texture?

It didn't taste like ketchup or Diet Coke. I wouldn't dream of asking you to 'just try it', but if I gave it to you without telling you what was in it, I think you'd like it.

I think you'll never accept chicken from me ever again.

Also, ketchup is tomatoes, vinegar, salt and sugar. I don't know why anyone would think that's disgusting. Yum.

You are quite correct about ketchup; also, did you know that normal ketchup prevents cancer? And that organic ketchup is something like 5 times more potent at preventing cancer?

Ketchup rocks.

This is precisely what I was referring to with the otherwise-seemingly-incongruous ingredients note before. You would in no way think that cooking chicken with soda and ketchup would be tasty, but sure enough it really is. Do not try it, just believe me.
