Feel free to share photos of your latest food creations from home. The aim of this thread is to visually show our creations. This is really about the look of how we present our recipe, rather than how to make it. But it's also about being clever and creative with how we take the photo of our meal.

You can share whatever you want, as this is about the presentation of what you think looks good. I think it's important not to judge if you are a meat eater, or not. Personally, when I smell most meat cooking, I have a natural reaction where I start to feel sick, and I very much dislike certain smells of meat now, because of how long I have been a full vegetarian, but when I see a photo of a meal that contains meat, I am fine with that and respect everyone's choices.

Some people do have to eat meat, otherwise their health is impacted—we are all different and unique and sometimes it's really good for us to come together and accept each other, no matter what diet we may have.

If you would like the recipe of what a person shares, feel free to ask for it on this thread.

Over on the board, Health, Somatics & Psychological Well-being, Linda has a thread up about sharing healthy recipes which is a bit different, as this is more about the look, in a creative sense.


Here is home made Gado-gado on wild rice, from a few nights ago — it was very tasty! (Gado-gado, also known as lotek, is an Indonesian salad of slightly boiled, blanched or steamed vegetables and hard-boiled eggs, fried tofu and tempeh, and lontong, served with a peanut sauce dressing)

Also from a night or two ago, here are a few vegetable dumplings with my favorite dipping sauce (white vinegar, chili and white sugar) with some fried mushrooms and potatoes on the side.

all these recipes came from an old English recipe book, the food tasted better than it looks lol
I have so many recipe books which I haven't read. I could do so much better with being creative in the kitchen!

That cake looks tasty!

It all looks so good - I love pot pies and shepherds' pies - comfort food for the winter.

I discovered an organic frozen ravioli in scrumptious flavors like butternut squash and mushroom and pine nuts. I make up a sauce of whatever is on hand and viola - dinner. I was going to send a picture last night, but when I got back into the kitchen, half of it was gone. lol

Oh, my...cottage pie (usually steak or ground beef) is one of my FAVORITES! We used to have a British Pub/Restaurant within walking distance of our house many years ago (long gone now, unfortunately). It was run by a British couple and had the air of a country pub the moment you stepped through the doors. We'd always walk down for a cottage pie with "mushy" peas and a pint or two of Guiness. That always made for a delightful afternoon...especially on a drizzly day. It was like being instantly transported thousands of miles to the English countryside!

I miss that place soooooo much.

I was reluctant to look into this topic because I was afraid to see chicken legs or... other meat. Laron , I should have guessed you were vegetarian when you made that comment about "eating red meat". What you shared looks like culinary masterpieces :)

I don't want to say anything bad to those who eat meat. We have friends who are absolutely amazing and eating meat.

Great idea Anaeika. I know some people may not have the time to write out their recipe though, so that was why I didn't include that in my original post.

I was reluctant to start the thread for the same reason, but then I think this provides a good opportunity to share without judgement, whether we consume flesh or not.

Out of respect, I'll only post my vegetarian meals.

Here is a quick lunch I put together the other day. Dried mango. Wasabi peas. Sweet cherry tomatoes. Raw cashews. Green apple. Roasted curry flavored chick peas (I think?).
