    I have a number of dishes I really like but I think my Moms' homemade chicken and dumplings would be number 1.
    What do you like? Please tell us.

    That depends on the time of the day. If i'm watching some good show or movie, nothing beats a nice big bowl of thick soup, with an entire loaf of bread to dunk with and a mug of cold chocolate.

    Baba ganoush... Yum...

    I really like the sushi rolls I have been making lately.

    But mostly, I think home-made pizza is the best. My pizza includes:
    - BBQ sauce.
    - hot salami
    - shredded ham
    - cheese
    - mushrooms
    - capsicum
    - sun-dried tomatoes
    - olives
    - onion
    - pineapple
    - anything else I can find that might work.

    I love food. I love food from every culture; in fact our pinnacle of culinary delights was found not in Paris, but in Amsterdam. Amsterdam is the place to experience the cuisines of the world. I don't know what we ate half the time [Tsunami and I], but most of it was the best thing I ever tasted. Indonesian foods knocked my socks off!

    Also, I could eat tacos every day of my life; and did for six months once; much the same for pizza and American Chinese food.

    I make a killer Chicken Kiev...when it comes out right.

    Its hard to beat a Blank Angus ribeye steak, barbequed over an open flame, fueled with lots of oak wood and charcoal, and with as much heat as possible; heavily smoked and medium rare please. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!! This is my only other specialty but it is a real favorite. Tsunami taught me her family's steak barbeque secrets and we have worked to perfect them for 20 years.

    PS. it is possible to ignite the paint on a BBQ by using wood instead of, or even with charcoal. This produces flames about 12 feet high and modifies the ambiance significantly.

    Really, if I give you some email addresses, will you tell my friends?

    The only place they eat food at are steak houses the worst food ever, you get an ienie tiny little piece of meat, with a salad that fits into an egg shell and french fries without sauce (you have to pay for that separately).

    My favorite food is raw chicory with pieces of orange and smoothered in a sauce of sour cream with orange lemonade. Together with that you serve warm french bread and deep fried chicken, which was first dipped into a batter of flour and spices, egg and fine bread crums.. sooo good!

    I once made potato cakes, which were heavenly!

    Recipe: boil potatoes, mash them with lots of powdered cumin and fresh coriander and some salt. Roll them into flat cakes, bake until golden brown in some vegetable oil.

    Together with that I served an Indian chickpea dish with rice on the side, I had guests over and they were floored

    For the chickpeas:

    In some oil fry an onion, 2 tbsp coriander, 2 tbsp cumin, some turmeric, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp sugar.

    Add 3 cups of chickpeas, 2 fresh chopped green chillies, 2in crushed fresh ginger, 2 chopped firm tomatoes (add some extra tomato paste for sauce).

    Simmer 5 min, add 3oz chopped fresh coriander.

    Taste and add extra spices/sugar to make it perfect and enjoy!

    Sure. I can't say enough good about Amsterdam; especially the food!

    Even wandering around Utrecht was fun...chocolate and danish shops. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

    By the way, you Nederlanders should tell us Americans that when we go shopping in Holland, we have to bring our own bags.

    LOL! Can you imagine my surprise when all of a sudden a young guy started packing my groceries when I was in the US? I couldn't figure out whether to tip him or what..

    and if someone doesn't come to pack your groceries, do you have to stand and wait, or do you have to start packing yourself? And when someone arrives, do you stop packing and let that person take care of it, or should you just pack along? I just found it all very confusing..

    Now we are on the subject: don't you find it a terrible waste to double pack every single item in plastic bags?? At least in Holland we stuff as much as we can in our own shopping bags that we bring along
