    If you've got pictures of your own creations, let's see them.

    Steak Curry
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I was disappointed since I couldn't find any curry paste to make my own curry sauce. Next time. I found a decent substitute. It's Kong Yen instant curry.

    Started with some oil in a pot and put in a small container of sliced baby portabella mushrooms, a whole red onion cut into chunks, and a whole yellow and red pepper cut into chunks. I put it on medium and went downstairs to the pre prepared charcoal grill. Tossed the steaks on there. Pulled them off at about medium rare-medium. Sliced them and set them aside.

    The rest was easy, 800cc (WTF?), or 27 ounces of water and a brick of instant curry later and we had curry! I put some additional chili powder in there as it said it was mild. Fixed the rice, and then prepared it for the below photo.

    Here's a Thai Chili Prawn noodle dish I made a while ago - was very yummy and spicy (the only way to have food ;) ) It was a bit of a 'creation' I just added things as i went LOL

    [​IMG]

    I think it was prawns (obvsiously lol) - lots of chili sauce - both sweet thai and hot chili sauce - carrot, brocolli, diced chilis, some spring onion and holkien(sp?) noodles Might have been some whostershire sauce in there also :)
    Also hot dried crushed chilies.

    Hmm hard to know if i've forgotten any ingredients - the main ones are there though CHILI :D

    Here's my stuffed chicken and asparagus recipe:

    I made stuffed chicken and a side of asparagus. I borrowed from some one's post on here. The chicken has spinach leaves, bacon, mozzerella and asparagus in it. A little basil on the outside and in the oven it goes. The Asparagus was fixed in a large pan with oil, basil, spinach leaves, portabella mushrooms, and some minced up garlic. It took about an hour and a half @ 350-375 for the chicken to get done.

    Start with a nice homemade dough if you're going to do pizza none of that store bought stuff can hold a candle to it. I find with my homemade dough and homemade sauce there is really no need to add toppings. I really need to increase the amount of homemade mozzarella I make though then I'd have a perfectly from scratch pizza.

    made this a few weeks ago. nice and spicy :)

    *EDIT*

    ingredients:

    500g Pinto Beans (soak beans overnight in cold water)
    2x Onion
    2x Celery
    2x Large carrot
    3x Garlic Cloves
    3x tbs Olive Oil
    2x Bay leaves
    Rosemary/thyme/parsley
    110g Chopped Pancetta or Bacon
    2x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
    1x tsp Cumin seeds
    1x tbs dried oragano
    Black pepper and loads of salt (starchy beans need plenty of salt)
    1x lime
    (some sour cream to serve)

    Method:

    heat chopped onions, celery, carrots, bay leaf, rosemay, thyme, parsley, pancetta and garlic in heavy bottomed pan until soft (15 mins)

    Add the beans and over with about 8cm of water (dont add salt yet). Bring to boil and boil hard for 10 mins. then lower and gentle simmer until the beans are soft (which could be around 1 and a half hours)

    After that add the tins of toms and cumin, oregano, salt pepper and the lime juice.

    simmer for another 30-6o mins, stir and squash the beans with a wooden spoon while you simmer to make the soup thicker... and you're done..

    ...that took me ages to type out, so you better make it :x

    Tuna with olive oil and smoked pepper grilled to about medium/medium rare. Sushi rice fixed with rice wine, salt, and sugar. Mayo & Sriracha mix layered with straight Sriracha on top for looks / dippage.

    I also fixed garlic mashed potatoes with a tiny bit of old bay and soy sauce with wasabi to dip the tuna in and top the rice with.
