    Cooking/Baking/Food has the power to bring people together. This a relaxed fun thread about food and drinks. Snack food is also included. What are you eating and drinking throughout the day? My main passion is photography but I also like to bake cakes, pies, cookies, etc. One day I will put them together... no i am not baking my camera. To start I made an 18" Reeses's peanut butter cup.

    I cook and quite alot, normally from scratch. Today was takeaway Thursday, but I do quite a few pasta dishes. I'm quite pleased with my almost traditional carbonara (no cream, no mushroom). I do a pretty good Amitriciana. Sometimes I even make my own pasta.

    Yesteday it was scallops in a garlic butter sauce with a hint of chilli, I've made them before with black pudding and pea pureé. I made Doro Wat recently too which is a delicious Ethiopian spiced chicked curry using Berbere. Thai coconut curry, spicy chicken wraps with blackened sweetcorn also recent dishes that turned out pretty good. I do my own chicken tikka korma, cullen skink (a scottish creamy soup made with smoked fish, kinda like a chowder), chicken and chorizo wraps, salt and pepper ribs, katsu curry. Last time I BBQed I made a killer pork loin satay. My new oven has a rotisserie function so I've been making rotisserie chicken too!

    Here's some pics:

    Everyone's food looks really good.
    Coincidence I made (quickly, not trying to win awards rolls) homemade cinnamon rolls earlier today also to go with the coffee. I do make homemade bread quite often, they eat it so fast. I like to wait for the bread to cool while the family likes the bread hot out of the oven.

    Hot bread is the bomb. Especially with a crusty crust.

    I envy you. On the rare occasion that I make pumpkin pie it comes from a can and I always forget to by condensed milk. I make it as little as possible because it taste to much like industrial store bought pumpkin pie, or like a can. The only thing going for it is my homemade pie crust. Your pumpkin pie looks really good.

    I could eat a steak. Or three crabs. Or a short stack of pancakes. Or a dozen biscuits.
