    Great thread! Been wanting to post here for a while (and in the confort food one too :headbang::) )
    I did some lamb kidneys yesterday, roasted in a pan with a mix of butter and homemade chinese chili red oil, then deglazed in homemade chinese flavored sweet soy sauce
    With it some wheat semolina cooked in potimarron soup (a nutty flavored species of pumpkin, the name is a contraction of winter squash and chestnut in french)
    I will concede I'm not much for presentation, but for taste... (and giblets are of interest for quick and tasty meals! :) )

    I've been digging chinese cuisine for some time now, cooking your own oil/sauce is really getting it to a new level of deliciousness!
    Have to try wontons in red oil one of these days, with all ingredients from scratch

    Chicken hearts, roasted then flambeed with tequila.
    Served with a chili-like mix of vegetables and lime drenched then peppered greek yogurt.


    On the greek yogurt front, I'm regularly preparing labneh : greek yogurt, salted and peppered, one can even add various (dry) aromatics, that is strained (using medical gauze in my case) for at least 12 hours at room temperature, then mixed with olive oil. (presented waiting for the oil here)

    I always have a jar of good olive oil infused with chili peppers, garlic, thyme, dried tomatoes... for labneh, salads, stir fries...

    Cocooning is the best time for an indulgence. Home made banana bread and freshly made pecan butter, yum!

    I fried some eggs.

    My mild-steel frying pan has been sitting, neglected and crying for care, for months. Not rusty, but old oil.

    I took hot water and washing-up liquid to it. Then I used salt as an abrasive. Then I took some fine emery paper to it, as it still didn't look right. And then... I didn't season it properly. I just oiled it and left it on a low light for a while.

    And then I fried a couple of eggs, and they did not stick at all. Mild steel: the world's best cheap frying pan :)
