WELL, HELLO! PORTOBELLO TACOS

January 28, 2015
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say, "Well, Hello! Portobello Tacos."

I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say, “Well, Hello! Portobello Tacos.”

Well, hello there!  Haven’t seen you around.  I would have noticed someone as fine as you.   What inspired you to come to my little part of the world?  No shit!  You came to see me?  You want me to cook to bang you?  Fair enough.  It’s just that I’m usually the one pursuing dates.  Nothing wrong with someone aggressive that knows what they want.  If it’s me you want, so be it. Wait, you’re vegan? Why?  Never mind. It won’t be a problem. So how about some Portobello mushroom tacos?  Glad you enjoyed them.  Shall we retire to the bedroom now?  Thanks for stopping by.

This dish's sexy quotient runs deeper than the Rio Grand

This dish's sexy quotient runs deeper than the Rio Grand

Hola, muchachos!  So it’s breakfast once again.  You’re ready for enough sustenance to satisfy the biggest machismo tough guy, but delicate enough to seduce the daintiest of conquests.  Good thing you have juevos grande…rancheros of course!  This classic Mexican desayuno is packed to the brim with black bean APHRODISIAC goodness, loaded with protein egg power and filled with veggie delights to keep you banging for years to come.  Your date’s health can only improve with you in their life because making a dish like this is incredibly thoughtful.  Well played!  I prepared this meal for a senorita of my own who was surprised that a gringo was able to serve up authentic juevos rancheros.  They were nearly as tasty as the siesta we took after breakfast.  Adios, mi amigos!

CTB CRITIQUE OPEN LETTER 2

March 11, 2010

I embrace criticism in all forms because it makes me improve my creative output. Most of my readers offer fantastic suggestions on recipes, photography tips, and occasionally their phone numbers so they get their own personal CTB servicing. But I get my share of hate mail, which honestly pleases me more than the love letters from Russian heiresses offering to pick me up in their leer jets. Hate mail lets me know I’m doing something right by creating controversy, making people think, and getting under their skin. The last great hate note one was from a RELIGIOUS WOMAN, whose opinions I respect, but don’t agree with. Below is a note from Sue in Canada who says:

You are a sick fuck. This website is not only disrespectful to women, but food is also sacred. it is clear you have too much time on your hands, among other things, i.e. your own dick as you have time to take pictures and number your ingredients… which by the way are a cheaters way of cooking. make your own salsa you lazy pig.

Allow me to retort, Sue:

Disrespectful to women:
Cook To Bang encourages men (also women) to break from the misogynist notion that “a woman’s place is in the kitchen.” The gender roles have been thus reversed. You see, I am a feminist at heart. I even took a Women’s Studies course in college. Note to my collegiate male audience: these classes rival yoga classes as the best place to pick up chicks.

Food is sacred:
I couldn’t agree more. Food is the great equalizer. I am an average looking guy without a vault full of cash to pay for five-star restaurant dates. Yet I tap top shelf ass thanks to my ability to create magic in the kitchen.

Too much time on your hands:
It’s true. I do. I started CTB after getting laid off. So I treat this like a job and work very hard to maintain my following with 5 recipes a week. Now I reap the benefits of all that time on my hands with a BOOK DEAL, among other lucrative opportunities I am cannot discuss in such a public forum.

i.e. Your own dick:
Now you’re losing your temper, and thus losing the argument by being nasty. The beauty of the CTB method is I don’t need to choke my own chicken. The girls I cook for are in charge of that department.

Make your own salsa you lazy pig:
I am indeed lazy now that I don’t have to work 40 hours a week. But a pig I am not since I exercise regularly thanks to all that time on my hands. As for making my own salsa, take your pick of these outstanding recipes: HORIZONTAL MAMBO MANGO SALSA SIMPLY SEXY SALSA WHO’S YOUR PAPAYA SALSA?

So Sue, thank you again for this most amusing, albeit vitriolic commentary on my life’s work. I can only assume it’s been a while since you had a proper rogering. If you are hot (verify with picture), and willing to visit me in California, I might consider Cooking To Bang you. We’ll call it community service. It might even be tax deductible.

With a whisk and a kiss,

The Cook To Bang Chef

DOUBLE E-CUP MORNINGS

December 4, 2009

Go ahead. Cop a feel.

Ever woken up next to someone WAY out of your league? Last night is a blur, you’re unsure of this hottie’s name, and you’re wondering if your benefactor is Make A Wish Foundation.   However you got here is irrelevant should you wish to see this stone-cold sexpot after they walk out your door.  Sure if it was another skank you assured your friends, “I know. It’s been a while. But seriously, dude, I know!” you wouldn’t bother with an Eggo waffle.  But on rare occasions where your lucky ass hits the hookup jackpot, you need to bring your morning A-game.  This is one such meal memorable enough to get a repeat or three-peat or possibly a repeat with a three-peat of conquests. Just ask the ballerina I’m told I picked up at a black tie Art Gala I crashed. Pictures of the two of us in the BG behind celebrities smiling like douches confirms the story, but you could have told me I saved her from a crazy Sheik’s harem and I’d take your word for it. This girl was in a hurry, presumably to pirouette across some stage, so I had to hook her up on the quick.  The cabbage cups made one hell of a carb-light wrap for my tiny dancer to chow on the go.  Later on it was she who called me and texted me and facebooked me and…Chill, homegirl! This dish may just be too effective.

Total time: approximately 10 minutes

Projected cost: $6

Drinking Buddy: Fresh OJ or BANGARITA

Ingredients (serves 2):

1. 2 intact cabbage cups

2. 1 dash paprika

3. 1 dash black pepper

4. 1 dash salt

5. 2 tbsp CALIVIRGIN olive oil

6. 1 handful fresh spinach

7. SIMPLY SEXY SALSA

8. ½ AVOCADO sliced thinly

9. 2 sausages (pork/chicken/veggie) sliced thinly

10. 3 eggs

Step 1

Crack the eggs and whisk them together with the salt, black pepper and paprika.

Step 2

Sauté the sausage with olive oil until they brown on both sides (approx 3 min).  Mix in the spinach and sauté until it wilts (approx 2 min).  Pour in the egg mixture and scramble like a champ (approx 2 min).

Step 3

Scoop half of the eggs in each cabbage cup. Crown with avocado and salsa.

The odds of stopping this BREAKFAST from sealing the seduction package deal are not good.

LEFTOVER SCHMEFTOVER EGGY WEGGYS

October 13, 2009
SF leftover eggs served

If they ask "Should I stay or should I go?", just shrug.

Sometimes the f@$%-it-all attitude is the best approach to life.  Whether we’re talking dating, cooking or anything that involves sheer pleasure, take a backseat and let it be whatever it will be.  I know that may sound difficult when you want something badly.  Trust me, I’ve been there and learned late in life the importance of not sweating the details. Heed my advice and settle down, tiger.  The eager beaver gnaws on wood and not much else.  This breakfast is a perfect metaphor.  The previous night I grilled my best SPANK MY HALIBUT yet along with some BOAST THE MOST ASS-PARAGUS for a date in who enjoyed it enough to let me sleep over.  Come morning time after my second round of banging the cobwebs out of my eyes, I stumbled casually into the kitchen and made this dish in a matter of minutes.  We dined, we banged and I slipped out the door, all at a leisurely pace, yet made it to work…only 15 minutes late!

Total time: approximately 5 minutes

Projected cost: $3 (plus whatever it cost to make leftovers)

Drinking Buddy: NOT-SO-TEENY WEENY BELLINI

SF leftover eggs prepIngredients (for 2):

1. 1 dash black pepper

2. 1 dash salt

3. 1 tbsp olive oil

4. 3 eggs

5. 4 tbsp SIMPLY SEXY SALSA

6. 2 slices cheddar cheese

7. Leftover GRILLED FISH

8. Leftover ASPARAGUS

Step 1

Beat the salt and peppered eggs.

SF leftover eggs beat

Step 2

Sauté the chopped leftover asparagus and fish with the olive oil (approx 2 min).  Pour in the eggs, but don’t scramble, just let the egg form around the leftovers like a pancake.  When the eggs cook through (approx 3 min), chop up the cheddar cheese and toss them on top, turn off the heat and cover, and allow it to melt.  Split eggs in half, serve up on plates and throw down some salsa.

FRISKY FRIED RICE

March 11, 2009
Sometime you just get lucky

Sometime you just get lucky

Desperation leads to innovation.  That is what I learned making this ridiculous rice dish.  I was traveling in a foreign land where I met a local girl who spoke little English and I little Spanish.  But we were both hungry so I invited her over for lunch at my Uncle’s place with a very limited kitchen.  I was way out of my element not only from culture shock, but also from a cooking environment lacking even something simple like black pepper.  But I had professed in no uncertain terms, “soy un jefe de cocina muy excellente!”  So I went to work the only way I know how, recklessly.  There was an old bag of rice, some veggies I bought off a truck, 1 weird seasoning jar and the Lizano salsa, my new favorite condiment.  This stuff has as many uses as Astroglide, but far tastier to most.  My chica bonita was well impressed with the random dish I concocted out of thin air.  Her hunger for food was satisfied, but only my sexy gringo ass could satisfy her sweet tooth.  The takeaway for this sordid tale I offer you is that you can eke out a feast from an ice cube and cinnamon stick if you are clever.  It’s like making a condom out of saran wrap, but not as idiotic.

Total time: approximately 20 minutes
Projected cost: $5
Drinking Buddy: Moonshine that you made out of rubbing alcohol and grape soda*

*This is sarcasm. Cook To Bang does not endorse making yourself blind from homemade moonshine.  Save that for the hillbillies.

frisky-fried-rice-prepIngredients (serves 2):
1. 1 tablespoon of seasoning of your choice (Spike Vege-sal used in this pic)
2. 4 tablespoons of Lizano salsa (available at most local Latino markets) OR other favorite hot sauce
3. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
4. 1 coffee mug of dried white rice
5. 1 large carrot
6. ½ a lemon worth of juice
7. 1 onion
8. 1 egg
9. 1 handful of raw almonds

Step 1
Fill a coffee mug up with dried rice and pour it in a medium sized pot, then two mugfuls of water.  Bring the water to a boil on high heat, then turn the heat down to medium and cook covered until rice fully expands (approx 10 minutes, read instructions).  Use a fork to fluff the rice like a porn star.

Step 2
Cut up the onions and carrots into bite-sized pieces.  Heat up a decent sized pan with olive oil, then sauté the veggies until they soften (approx 3 minutes).  Add the seasoning and almonds and cook until the almonds soften (approx 2 minutes).
frisky-fried-rice-veggies
Step 3
Add the rice to the pan and mix them all up.  Crack the egg onto top of the rice and quickly beat it so it cooks into the rice.  Squeeze the lemon juice on top and crown it all with the blessed Lizano sauce.  Behold, an edible feast made from pure gumption.
