    OK, I'm posting this one for the couple of women we have in the group...and maybe there are some guys here that like to grill/cook. I found a page full of famous recipes from well known restaurants. I'm not sure if these are legit or not because I am not a cook. Anyway, here is the page:

    I didn't get it at first so some others might not as well. The W3 should be WWW. This is a GREAT find. I am in charge of cooking dinner for my girlfriend and I tonight and my arsenal is ramen noodles and frozen pizzas, this is going to be great! Thank you.

    you need a crock pot/slow cooker my friend. i am no great cook either, but i make the most kickass dinners with that thing, just season up a roasting type meat, put it in the pot with some water and a boulion cube and turn it on. so easy and a few hours later it should be done and tasty

    Hey gts6 - You are correct about the crock pot. That's the lazy man's way to cook and I love it! You can make some pretty good dishes that way!

    Meat 'n' Potatoes are great for crock pots. Throw some carrots in there while you're at it, too. Slow cook it all day and the meat will be super tender. Get yourself a rice cooker, too, and you'll have it made.

    I never thought I'd start a thread in a black hat forum that actually got people to respond to that talked about food and recipes! :) Man, I'm getting hungry!

    Thanx for the info. I myself am a chef and I love this stuff. Feeding people makes you popular at parties/get togethers(and usually free beer).

    No shit, just wait till all your freinds always want you to cook at every event, it gets kinda old after awhile.

    You are not to late to view any of these recipies.

    If you go to the site, you will notice that it has expired. However, go to Google and type in:

    site:texasamstaff.com/secret/

    the pages will come up and just hit the "Cache" link to see what it looked like....

    Someone mentioned a rice cooker...

    If you like coconut, you should make coconut rice! Just replace part of the water in the directions with coconut milk! You may have to shop around for a decent brand of coconut milk. Some of them are HORRIBLE. But make sure you get the unsweetened kind if you plan to use this for a side dish. What I do is use 1 can of coconut milk in place of X ounces of water (X being the ounces on the can, of course.) The 1 can rule is good for most sized batches of rice. Use 1/2 can for very small batches and 2 cans for very large batches. Then just add a bit of butter and salt and serve! You can make it healthier by using reduced-fat coconut milk and leaving out the butter. It still tastes great this way.

    This is a really great side dish to go with most seafood dishes. Stuffed flounder, poached, grilled, or baked salmon, most types of shrimp dishes... and it makes an excellent base for curries, because most of them contain coconut milk, anyway!

    I first saw this on Top Chef, and I had to look up how to make it. :D

    My husband and I just sold our restaurant here in NYC. We did well with it, but not as well as my neighbor, who took her restaurant brand to a nationwide franchise. But then she's been running very successful restaurants here for 20 years. We had our restaurant for only 3 years, and on a much smaller scale.

    NYC is especially difficult and competitive. Perhaps smaller markets are easier.

    Thanks for the recipe collection.

    Best,
    Sine

    Smaller markets are not easy. I know dozens of people who have opened restaurants up in some of the smaller towns I've lived in and most of them failed miserably, even though the food was amazing. It's hard to get a restaurant going if you don't have a lot of marketing experience or a big ad budget. Some of the restaurants that closed down were really shocking to me, because they had truly exceptional food and service. It was just that no one ever heard of them and their marketing was horrible.
