I like to cook, a lot. Living with a great chef / nutritionist for the past several months has really been a great experience culinary wise as I've learnt to cook a helluva lot better then I could and I've experienced a whole variety of new foods and flavours. So for those of you you enjoy to cook, What are some great recipies to try? What are your favourite dishes and how you like to cook them?

congrats on getting the cooking down pat
in my opinion cooking is one of the most underated DHVs around
plus its a benefit to you on a bachelor night
i love to grill, and do so year round
my favorite thing to grill is ribs
i do em like this
start with 4 racks of ribs with the breatbone trimmed off and the silverskin removed fromthe back of the rib
St louis style ribs are the best
they are a normal pork rib but the thing that sets em apart is that they are cut so the bones are about 3-4 inches long and much more manageable when consumed, also they dont have the gross riblings
throw the ribs in a large stock pot of water and boil for 1-1.5hrs.
water can be spiced with pepper, salt and whatever other spices you want
i also liek to throw in a half of onion for a bit of extra flavour.
boiling makes the ribs really tender and eliminates some of the fat
it is important to scoop off the fat from the top of the water every 10 minutes or so.
in the time when you start thats when you can make your rub
a rub is a mixture of spices that you rub on your meat before you grill it
i got a secret recipe for my rub but you can find a good one anywhere online or make your own
http://bbq.about.com/od/rubrecipes/r/bl40228a.htm - this is a site that was the second one in the google search i did for "rubs"
this isnt limited to ribs either
after you boil the ribs you have the option to put mustard on them and then the rub, or put the rub rght ont he meat,
it is ready to drill when the rub has soaked up some moisture and "glistens"
grill for 6-8 minutes a side and put some barbeque sause on if you like
to serve cut into single ribs and serve with compliments like potatoes or whatever you have on hand
