Cooking With Zack: Mrs. Fair's home cooking

(Redactor's note: Here's the fic behind the food: Cooking With Zack, part of Jou's Harrow Children universe. More infrastructure rambling after I've gotten out of the way and let Zack do his thing!)

(ETA, 8/1 - finally got the pictures sorted & imbedded!)

The dishes

Chicken tiki tone

Chicken in a tart-spicy-fragrant tamarind and coconut sauce.

Pumpkin tari

Think five-alarm mouth fire, with pumpkin and chickpeas. :3

Spinach tari

Spinach and squeaky-cheese with an optional citrus twist from artichoke and lime.


Crisp vegetable salad marinaded in mild vinegar and spices.


Skillet-bread flavored as you like it.

Lemon rice

Long grain rice cooked with spices and dressed with lemon juice and flavored sizzling oil.

Beware: 6 recipes, lots of chiles, and lots of cooking below! )

Aeris' Heavenly Truffle Brownies

Hi! I discovered this through chibiritsuchan's journal. These divine brownies are delicious, and I feel that Aeris would love them. And since Aeris is Certa, of course there can be Lifestream cooking. Right?

Who says there's not cooking in heaven? )

Chocolate-Covered Cloud

Greetings, all!

I was directed here by [info]chibirisuchan on account of a dessert I felt the need to make after reading this fic by [info]bloodparade over on LJ. It put the idea of a chocolate-covered Cloud firmly in my head. This particular combination is not readily apparent on the internet, but it stands to reason it might exist already somewhere. Nevertheless, here's my tribute to FFVII's fandom bicycle. :p

So there's my not-quite-first fandom dessert. I made a Sephiroth gingerbread man three Christmases ago but he didn't last long. >_> Nice to be here with you all and I look forward to cooking and tasting whichever lithe bishy recipe you all offer up! XD

Angeal's apple puff pancake

"What are you doing?" Genesis asked, sniffing cautiously at the air. Though not unpleasant -- far from it, actually -- it was still a little disconcerting to come home and find his apartment smelling like a bakery.

Angeal smiled and checked something in the oven, then turned his attention to the stovetop. "You've got a decent kitchen, it's a shame it never gets any use."

"I," Genesis stated with distinct emphasis while stripping off his coat, "don't cook. I didn't think you did, either..." He trailed off, remembering a chunky young boy helping his mom in the kitchen.

As if reading his mind, Angeal said, "My mother taught me how to feed myself. It's a useful thing to know."

Genesis tossed his coat over a chair, then feigned disinterest as he strode casually into the kitchen. "So...what are you making, then?"

Angeal grinned and opened the oven to remove...a thing. A big, poofy, breadlike thing that smelled and rather looked like a giant popover. He set it on the counter, where it began to gracefully deflate, leaving a high ridge of crust around the edges.

Then he took the lid off the skillet on the stovetop.

The scent of apples and butter and cinnamon nearly dropped Genesis to his knees. "Goddess! Those are --"

Angeal leaned in until their noses almost touched. "Banora white," he whispered across the other man's lips.

"Those are hideously expensive to import," Genesis murmured, draping his arms over Angeal's broad shoulders.

"You're worth it."

Tifa's homemade chocolate cures for what ails you

It's amazing, the number of things you can get processed and ready-made and instant in Midgar. How much fancy stuff you can make just by adding (filtered, or better yet bottled) water to something out of a box.

Tifa's never liked any of it. Sure, you might be able to make caramel-swirled glazed brownies and frothy pudding with flavor names that are hard to pronounce just like that, but it feels...cheap, somehow. Her versions, the recipes she brought with her from Nibelheim, are plainer and less fancy, and they do take more work, but she swears up and down they taste better, too.
