Orzo and rice both. I think it's the texture. Tonight I made orzo and added grilled peppers, onions, and zucchini. At the end I dumped in a blog of butter and a handful of grated parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper and it's yummy in mah tummy.
I've been making my own chocolate syrup. Melt one ounce of bittersweet chocolate over low heat. Add a tablespoon of butter and melt it. Add a pinch of salt and stir it in. Add sugar to taste, mix it in with the melted chocolate and butter until it's lumpy. Add heavy cream to make it liquid (no more than 8 ounces) and stir. Taste it to make sure it's sweet enough for you. Then, turn off the heat, add a cap of vanilla. I've got a version where I add two caps of Mint extract. Tastes like Thin Mints.
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.
I made cheese sauce for the first time ever and it came out... wrong. Seemed simple enough. 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of flour, cup of milk and grated cheese. What could go wrong!? Well. As I was whisking, I think perhaps I had the heat on too high and it pretty much turned into a cheese blob and not cheese sauce. To keep it from siezing up further and turning my whisk into a memorial of bad cooking, I dumped it over the rice I intended it for and added butter. It didn't taste bad. Just... it wasn't the creamy I was dreaming of.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
