I became a big fan of healthy eating. Yesterday I made mini turkey meatloaves with baked sweet potatoes. Tonight I made turkey taco lettuce wraps. I even ordered special food containers to take homemade food to work. Only simple and healthy food for a while...Need to lose weight a little
Pics please! :p

I am a big fan of cooking a roast with the meat in an oven bag, then using the liquid after to make gravy.

Super tender and moist meat with rich flavourful gravy.

The little princess practically tries to drink the jug.

Not going to master anything without practice mate. Sure there may be a few slight failures along the way but that's part of the fun of it!

Ive been smoking meat the last 12 months. Brisket and Pork Shoulder I have mastered, just melts in the mouth. Ribs I am a bit hit and miss with and haven't done as many times. Brisket is the best, just so flavoursome.

I find this thread a little humorous. With the vast majority of it being home-cooked stuff, it blows me away that people take so much time with presentation! That's not a knock on anyone - good on you for making food that looks so great - but I'm a pretty ******* excellent cook (it's the one thing that I have absolutely zero modesty about), but my food typically just looks like average home cooked fare, cos I'm arsed if I can be bothered going to the effort of making it restaurant quality presentation!

Fully understand .one of my friends takes the piss out of me all the time.
I spent many years in kitchens as a kitchenhand and was embarrassed by some chefs attitude to food in general.
I take pride in my food whether its just for me ,my mates or my family .obviously i only post the most photogenic ones up here
