Not really a proper recipe since I never measured my ingredients out for this... |D This recipe doesn't even have a name lmao.

Ingredients... Lesse here,
Chunk of Ground Beef
Basil
Salt
Pepper
Chedder
Margarine (Totally optional. Adding this just makes it more fattier. lol.)
Egg

Steps,

1. Heat your pan until it's pretty hot. (You can test if it's hot enough by wetting your hand and then flinging droplets of water into it. If the drops sizzle, it's hot enough. If not, wait a bit more and keep on testing.)
2. Add your ground beef. No oil or margarine is needed, technically, because the fat in the meat will be sufficient. Get a wooden spoon of something of the sort and start stabbing the meat. Yes. With a wooden spoon.
3. Keep stabbing until the meat is all separated into very tiny chunks.
4. Sprinkle as much salt and pepper you want.
5. Put a bit of basil on your palm. With your free hand, pinch some basil and then grind it with your fingers onto the meat. Repeat until you have as much or as little basil you want in there.
6. Wait for the meat to become edible, lol.
7. While your waiting, scarmble some eggs if you want... You should know how to scramble eggs.
8. When done, serve on a random dish with the eggs on the side.
9. Enjoy your beef egg dish thing?
10. As for the cheddar, either sprinkle it on top or microwave it atop the meat... Anything you want lol.

You ready for some derlicious cookies?
These are Ty's uber awesome mint sanderwich cookies

Very very simple
All you need is sugar cookie dough and mint flavored cookies

1. Preheat the oven to baking temperature like 350-ish
2. Cut circles off the dough and press it a bit
3. Place a mint cookie on every other dough circle
4. Take the dough circles without the mint cookies on them and place them ontop of the mint cookie and press it down around the cookie until its no longer visible
5. Put them in the oven and bake to your preference I can't give a time because baking is a fickle process that requires lots of checking and patience

2 Pears, peeled and cut in halves (300 g)
1/3 cup of Sugar (65 g)
2 soup spoons of Marsala Wine (30 mL)
2 Eggs, Large size
1 pinch of Salt
3 soup spoons of White Flour (25 g)
1 1/2 soup spoon of Cornstarch (12 g)
4 tea spoons of Icing Sugar (10 g)


1. Preheat the oven at 375°F. Put the Pears in a little saucepan with about 2 centimeters of Water and 1 soup spoon of Sugar. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and cook for 5 minutes. Strain them, but keep the Cooking Water.

2. Cut an Half-Pear in little pieces and put them into 6 ramekins. Add the Marsala. Reduce to a pulp the Remaining Pears.

3. Separate the Yolks from the Egg Whites. In a bowl, whip up the Egg Whites until they are creamy. Add a pinch of Salt and continue to whip them until they are very hard.

4. In another bowl, Whisk the Yolks and the Sugar. Add the Pear Purée, the Flour and the Sieved Cornstarch, then add the Whites with a spatula. Share within the ramekins. Put the ramekins in a cooking plate and add Very Hot Water up to the ramekins' mid-height. Cook from 15 to 20 minutes until they are golden.

5. In the meantime, cook the Cooking Water for some minutes to reduce it to a syrupy concistancy. When the Soufflés are ready, immediately remove them from the oven, sprinkle with Icing Sugar, baste with the Lukewarm Syrup and serve.

6. Enjoy.

Marple Syrup Pears


6 well riped Pears
15mL of Lemon Juice (1 soup spoon)
250mL of smooth White wine OR smooth Cider (1 cup)
The fine-peeled Zest of a Lemon
1 Cinnamon Roll
30mL of Marple Syrup (2 soup spoons)
2mL of Arrowroot Flour (1/2 tea spoon)
160 mL of light plain Yogurt, filter through a stainer (2/3 cup)


1. Peel the Pears, but leave them complete. Spread the Lemon Juice on them so they won't blacken. With a small knife, core the centers of the Pears, starting from the bottom.

2. Put the Pears in a thick-bottomed pan. Pour the Wine OR the Cider, with enough cold Water to nearly completely cover the fruits.

3. Add the Lemon Zest and the Cinnamon Roll. Bring to a boil, the low the heat and let it come to the boil 30 to 40 minutes. Turns the Pears many times in-between. Delicately put them out of the pan, drain them and reserve.

4. Bring the Pears cooking Juices to a boil. Reduce them uncovered untill you get something like 125mL (1/2 cup) of them.

5. Filter through a stainer, then add the Marple Syrup. Dissolve the Arrowroot Flour in some of this liquid. Pour it into the pan. Bring it to a boil and let it cook while stirring untill you get a thick and translucid syrup.

6. Cut the Pears into slices up to their 3/4 of height, while keeping the slices attached to the stem. Put each Pear individually on a plate, fan-shaped style. Incorporate 30mL (2 soup spoons) of Suryp into the Yogurt and pour it around the Pears. Pour the rest of the Suryp on them. Immediately serve.

7. Enjoy *NOTE: Poach the Pears in advance. The syrup MUST be cool when served. The cooking time varies with the brand of the Pears and their maturity. The Pears MUST be riped, but still firms. If they are too riped, they'll squash.
