That stuff is gold. I'm not kidding. 
Tonights Menu 
consists of Kraft Dinner(tm) Macaroni and Cheese. Commonly refered to as 'KD' or 'Mac N Cheese'. We are eating original brand KD with no fancy noodles or irregular flavourings to the sauce.

1937: KRAFT� Macaroni and Cheese Dinner was introduced with the advertising slogan of "Make a meal for 4 in 9 minutes."

1998: STOVE TOP OVEN CLASSICS were introduced. The same year KRAFT introduced EASY MAC macaroni and cheese dinner, a microwavable, single-serve product.

I've yet to try the new 'EASY MAC' in its just add water form. If anyone has, how does it compare to the original wait 10 minutes to boil mac n cheese?

Interesting Fact : The USA food and drug board allows a percentage of Plastic compound to be added to both the KD pasta and the cheese powder. The reason this plastic is added is to help the noodles look so shiny thus more appetising.

Kraft Dinner has remained a family favorite, with more than 7 million boxes purchased every week. 
UPDATE 
the mac n cheese was ruined
I go hungry tonight

I'd gnaw my right hand off before considering ingesting that thing you just described.

Breakfast today: Croissants with Nutella spread, kinda like a pain au chocolat I guess. Yummy. 
Oh Man, 
Nutella, that shit is good. 
Mmm

Mmmm 
left over macaroni and cheese (homemade, no instant!) chilled over night plus a couple of cups of sliced ham.

heat up some canola oil in a frying pan til it sizzles and then dump it all in.

yum, yum. 
KFC 
In the other thread, there was some talk about KCF. I thought I would look for a recipe for KFC chicken. This one looks pretty good :

http://www.recipegal.com/other/genuineKFCsecretrecipe.htm

Got to say, it looks like way too much salt for my liking and I would leave out the monosodium glutamate (MSG). Also, I would probably subsitute the ground ginger for mace. Mace (mace is the bright red membrane that covers the nutmeg seed) and chicken is an awesome combo.

Heh 
Funny story - my freezer blew up the other day. Nothing much in there luckily, except for about 20 frozen pizzas, and some frozen veg. The veggies I pretty much wrote off, but the pizzas should be ok in the normal fridge for at least a few days.

The upshot of this is that I've had to get through these pizzas as quickly as possible, so for the last couple of days it's been pizza for breafast, pizza for lunch, pizza for dinner...

I thought I'd be sick of them by now, but it's going pretty well actually ^__^ 
Right Now 
I'm eating curry with cous-cous. Spicy good asian wisdomness, or however that one person put it. 
Todays Meal 
Was a trip down to the nearby 'Slocan Diner' where I had a heaping plate of marvelous French Toast with a light dusting of icing sugar. I then added a generous amount of Canadian Maple Syrup to the elegant stack of delicious french toast. The Coffee I had was just right with 1 cream and aprox 1 tbsp of sugar. It probably doubled the clogging of my arteries but was most definitely worth it. I expect to have a sugar burnout within the hour. 
Caffeine Intake 
What sort of caffeine intake do you guys have? I'm starting to think I'm getting a bit excessive with my 2-3 coffees and 2-4 mugs of tea per day. 
2-3 Coffees A Day 
But they're half-calf, so it doesn't count as much. Then I have anywhere between 0-6 Cokes a day. I don't drink tea. I would like more, I'm a bit addicted to caffeine, coffee in particular. Goes well with all sorts of yummy chocolate treats. 
Caffine 
One or two pepsis a day. No coffe, no cigarettes. 
Hrm 
one bourbon.
one scotch.
one beeeerrrrr. 
0-2 pepsis a day, not really for caffeine purposes but more the 'refreshment' and to 'stay young'
I'll gladly drink any cola brand if it's available. But here are the favourites I lean towards

(In order of preference)

Jones Soda - Vanilla Cola
Jolt - Cola
Pepsi cola

I will also drink coffee if I'm somewhere that serves it and I believe it will be palatable with my meal. (Usually breakfast) but that is far from a regular event in my world. 
The Single Guy's Cookbook 
There is a popular misconception that all men are pigs, when the truth is that most of us are simply dogs: friendly enough, but often sloppy. This aspect of masculinity can reach a high level of non-refinement when focused on the kitchen. Although I'm a fairly steady proponent of nice, healthy unbreaded chicken breasts, fish fillets and steamed vegetables, I am not enough of a LIAR to claim that I have not engaged in some ghastly gourmandhood. I don't stick out a pinky when I drink my coffee and I don't give a damn about a festive spray of parsley and carrot slices over cottage cheese. No, I quiver like a retriever who has spotted the duck when you even SAY "pizza." Therefore, despite my diligent forays into healthy eating at least every OTHER day, there are those gooey lapses and if you say you don't have them too, why, Daddy SPANK, you lying scum.

Despite the title, I'm not EVEN serious about offering traditional Single Guys a cookbook. A large number of them are single with good reason, among them being that a cookbook is on their Top 5 list of things useful as shimmies for wobbly tables. No, its more of a mini-diary describing things I have seen practiced all too often and which decent people tend to avoid. Well, maybe not exactly decent, but at least those with more than a nodding acquaintance with hygiene.

If you think the following descriptions are funny, you either ARE one of these people and haven't a clue or you escaped from one and feel
light-hearted at the memory. Don't let your male children read this; unless you are really on the ball, they'll be emulating it soon enough and may already be well on their way, ugh.

Spaghetti al Dental
You're too lazy to really monitor the food as it cooks because you're wrapped up in some monster movie, so you forget to set the timer and dump the pasta out too soon. You might as well just wet it and eat it like popcorn, because this method leaves it so crunchy, it scrubs your teeth like a Milk-Bone. A great way to cut your gums or pop a filling, which is extra-pathetic, since you've seen that movie 3 times before. You also fail to leave the ready-made sauce in the microwave long enough, so it gives you the runs because it wasn't heated to a level that would kill off more than 12% of the nematodes. You blame the Mama Graballsi Company for its lousy product, but hey, its not THEIR fault you are brain-damaged.

Rack of Spam
You throw together anything resembling beef that's been lingering in the fridge for less than a month. This might include half a sausage patty and a piece of a Hot Pockets whose actual contents are hard to define because its become so dessicated. You sometimes throw in a little bit of old tuna casserole, figuring "What the hell, it's protein and the sauce will mask the fish." Sometimes its even true. You stir it with a paint scraper because the sink is full of most of the things a lazy single guy's sink is full of, including all but the one spoon you'll wipe on your shirt to eat with. Then you throw it all out because it tastes the way a semi-sane person would EXPECT it to taste. 
Single Guy's Cookbook, Pt. II 
Chili De Morte
Similar to Rack of Spam. Start with a can of commercial chili and use the cheapest one you can find. The thicker the orange shell of sheer grease on top when you open it, the better. The very idea that you would use real stew meat instead of cheap ground beast that's more pink than red and then add onions, tomatoes etc. in their fresh states is laughable. You pour in a fistful of salsa and maybe the leftover Mama Graballsi sauce you didn't squander on the Spaghetti al Dental.
You squirt several packets of Taco Bell sauce into it, as a rule. You usually crumble into it a whole package of Ritz Crackers or half a bag of half-stale Doritos and a bit of tabasco, if you are either feeling adventurous or are too stoned or zoned out to consider the possible aftermath. You squirt half a can of gooey cheese surrogate over it. If you are 5% more on the ball than usual, you also nuke some broccoli in a valiant but vain attempt to get some tangible nutrition into the glop, but more likely because the chili will cover the taste of vegetables, which as we all know, are horrible. You make an exception by adding several jalapeno peppers because you want to give it some zing.
You scarf down enough of it to serve 4 or 5 normal people and spend the next morning with your anus under a cold tap running at full blast because you are too stupid to remember the last time you did this same thing. Fire comes out of it like Gamera in full flight. You go to the store later that night and buy 5 more cans of chili. Repeat.

UnSalad with Lettuce
As mentioned, vegetables are awful, so your salad consists of as little lettuce as possible drowned in a creamy dressing, croutons, bacon bits and something resembling cheese sprinkled over the top. If a woman is present, you might grudgingly add some olives and carrot shavings to make it look legit, but won't eat tomatoes at all and see cucumbers as nature's dildo rather than a food source.

Breakfast of Crampions
Here's the rotating lineup: semi-hard donut or other utterly nutritionless pastry; generic corn flakes; suspect milk that's right on the verge of developing lumps; 3-day old EggaMuffin; a nearly black banana; and 3 gooshy red grapes.
If you are in a hurry, you sometimes pour orange juice and a "protein power drink" into the blender and fling some or all of these other ingredients in with it. A bug falls in but you decide it's too small to be a real threat to your health and may also have some protein in it. In either case, by 11 a.m., your innards are gurgling like tenement bathroom plumbing and you wonder if you have e-bola. You also win no points for reheating last night's Chili De Morte. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so by dinner time, you're not even trying anymore, are you? Here's a tip: Mylanta is not a beverage.

Popcorn Supreez
Since you ARE a lazy SOB and will throw most any sort of food down your gullet to avoid cooking for real, microwave popcorn is a major portion of your so-called cuisine. As you have the attention span of a gibbon, a bag of the stuff that calls for a maximum of 5 minutes on high to get full poppage often gets 50 because you just jabbed at the timer instead of setting it properly. Since you have never replaced the battery in your smoke alarm, the first time you notice your oversight is when the steenky black cloud of smoke interferes with your viewing of the TV. You also never replaced the fire extinguisher, so you put out the fire with a whole box of baking soda. For no reason either he nor God can discern, you keep pouring the blackened popcorn into the dog's bowl. Oh yeah, that'll work. Why do you think he keeps pissing on your chair and any clothing he can reach? Aren't you just the funnest little dickens?
The "Supreez" comes in when you get it right from time to time. The landlord and EPA keep fining you because your kitchen has to be steamed and scraped regularly. Mere mopping is pointless. Roaches call you by your first name because you decorate with pizza boxes and Burger King bags. Everyone else has to enter your digs wearing snowshoes to avoid the bulk of the filth. You once ordered a Russian bride through the mail, but when she saw your place, she mailed herself right back and hey, she LIKES popcorn. However, she and the dog agreed that you were hopeless.

Mystery Can
You come home so inebriated, you grab the first can you see and put it in the microwave for dinner. Sometimes you even open it first. The part of your brain that retained the term "hand grenade" and what it leads to died about a decade back, right after you ate the bad, bad chicken. It doesn't matter much whether its wax beans, chili or fruit cocktail, because its going to explode and start a fire regardless. You go through microwaves and roommates the same way Laura Bush goes through Xanax. Think I'm kidding? She's the one who gave George the pretzel. 
Single Guy's Cookbook, Pt. III 
Epiphany Stew
You stop eatin' that crap, get right with JAAAAY-sus and lose enough weight that you receive the pleasure of ironic cussing as you replace pants that became too loose. You start lookin' GOOOOD and people start catering to you unduly. The world becomes your vaporware oyster, you get a swelled head and start flipping those tacky 9/11 commemorative Freedom Tower silver coins to kids like you were hot stuff. Three of them gang up, push you in front of a bus, take all of the coins in your stupid pockets, then mount your head on a wall where you can never eat Chili De Morte again.

So, um... what's for dinner?

-Hellpope Huey

Actually, when I lived away from home, dinner was usually fried sliced spuds, fried cheap meat cuts, and steamed veggies. -FC 
Fat Controller 
Don't you ever think to write a "real" cook book instead of loosing your time with Quake/Doom3 mapping ?? 8D 
Caffeine. 
Less than 1 cup of coffee per week, 1 cup of green tea per week, and a couple of glasses of fizzy pop per week.

I really like coffee but I stay clear of caffeine as it's stimulant effect is quite noticable - I sometimes "use" it if needed. 
I Had 
Frosted Flakes for breakfast. I could have easily gone with some sort of mini-wheat variant for health reasons.

I'll keep you updated.

PS: No coffee this morning, as I tend to put in a fair amount of half-and-half, and too much milk this early upsets my tummy. 
Cereal Sucks IMO 
I prefer toast or croissants for breakfast. If I get up really early, a Full English is often just the ticket. 
 
I eat only rocks, all other food causes cancer. 
Scampie 
igneous or sedimentary? I'm partial to chalk myself. 
Chili De Morte 
I did that a lot in college. That and lots of Ramen (mmmmmm, Ramen).

Re: caffeine--I drink about 3-5 cans of diet soda and/or cups of tea a day. More often than not, it's caffeinated. 
Caffeine 
Hmmm...after seeing some of these responses, my caffeine intake does seem rather high. Perhaps I need to find a healthier means of stimulation... 
Lunch 
Roasted chicken legs with potatoes. My sister is cooking, so it will probably suck. I intend to take advantage of my lack of coffee this morning and sneak in an extra cup during the day sometime.
I shall snack on something suitable (possibly suggary) if said lunch does not meet my demands. 
Lunch 
For me, it was a chunk of pork slapped between two floury baps, with a bit of mustard. 
Recipes 
fresh Summer squash, sliced into thin round wafers, bread it with flour, salt and pepper; place them flat in a pan. Slice an onion and place the rings over the squash. Take a stick of butter and cut up into several pieces and distribute evenly on top. Bake until crisp. Absolutely awesome.

Peanut Butter Cookies, take whatever recipe you may have for peanut butter cookies and substitute plain vanilla cake mix for the flour. You will need to at the very least half the sugar content of the normal recipe. 
Caffeine 
I drink 32oz of coffee when I wake up, and usually have about 32oz of Coca Cola before the day is done. 
Caffeine. 
on average 2 bottles of diet coke/pepsi a day.
but no tea or coffee. 
Success 
Mission to score additional cup of coffee succeeded; No casualties. Sub-objective of chocolate snack: failure, but managed to maintain a peanut-butter/strawberry-stuff snack bar.

Dinner: Unknown. Possibly pork-chops, perhaps if no identified target then Burger King or pizza. 
Update: 
Before work-snack:
Potato w/ bacon bits left over Campbell's soup. Still good when microwaved. Tuna-sammich to go with, make for a good combo. Mom will probably force me to eat some sort of vegetable. Anger grows. 
I Got Addicted To Caffiene After 11 Days 
Now I'm exceptionally tired whenever I'm away from it. 
Coffee 
Seems to have different effects on me. SOmetimes I'm hyper, sometimes it mellows me out. Other times it makes me really really sleepy. But, it always makes me happy. 
There Was This One Time 
Some smartass slipped extra chilli into an already hot pasta I was creating, way back when I was living away from home.

HooAAAARGH!! 
Coffee 
has one of two effects on me; first, it is an elixer that brings me back from the land of the dead in the morning. Any other time of the day, it is just mildly stimulating. I usually drink two to three cups a day. 
Coffe... 
.. is only an really efficient stimulant... for my bladder only !!! 
I Grow A Herb And Pepper Garden, 
and one variaty of Thai peppers -- a cute, bright orange thing that resembles a bell pepper folded in itself is sublimely hot and richly tasty at the same time. 
Tonights Dinner 
was a veritable FEAST of a submarine sandwhich with layers of turkey, ham , salami , green peppers, pickles, jalapenos, lettuce, and mustard, I even added a bit of parmesan cheese ontop.

delicious

BreakFast: Standard bacon n' eggs breakfast. Eggs kinda cold. Mom made me take a vitamin pill the size of scampie's abs. :( 
Two Milkshakes 
1 cup of milk,
1 tub of Crystal Lite Classic Orange
4 cups of Vanilla Ice Cream

Mix in a blender and dump in a glass and drink. Cream Sickle memories from your childhood will come pourin' from your eyes like an avalanche coming down a mountain.

1 jar of candied cherries
1 jar icecream topper pecans with syrup
Put into a blender and blend into a paste
Add 1 cup of milk
4 cups of Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 a bottle of Guinness Stout (about 8 oz.)
Blend, shake and drink.
This will cleanse your soul of all that has trespassed it. 
Omg 
that's what I need to have soon, is a good milkshake. I like to add maple syrup as a sweetener sometimes 
Re: Caffeine 
A bad idea is to put a little watermelon flavored vodka into your coffee. It doesn't help taste-wise. 
Watermelon Flavored Vodka 
is a bad idea under any circumstances. 
Try 
watermelon flavoured milk! 
Flavoured Vodkas... 
Chilli-flavour vodka pwnx0rs.

Pear drop, liquorice and parma violet flavours are also pretty nice. 
Watermelon 
has this odd taste of rot quality about it, at least to my palette. So, even the thought of watermelon flavored milk or vodka makes me queesy. Sorry.

A Culinary Epiphany 
Made my usual Bangers 'n' Mash for dinner today, but was mortified when I discovered I'd run out of gravy O_O. In desperation I whipped up some Bisto Chip Shop Curry Sauce mix, and was subsequently very pleasantly surprised by this unlikely combination.

Suffice to say, the list of things I've tried that don't go well with curry sauce, continues to shrink. ^_^ 
Hallucagenic Foods 
Only food I know that makes you do this is Nutmeg. I forget what quantities, but it can provide entertainment for ~24 hours I hear, but too much can cause vomiting or, failing that, death. From what I hear, anyway.

Dont Smoke The Shrimp 
True Story: A few years back some friends of mine and I rented a beach house for a week. There was a fresh fish market a block down the road from us and I bought a huge quantity of shrimp, brought it back to the house, cooked'em, made a variety of sauces, and we all pigged out.

After eating, I was ready for some mood alteration and I got the bong out. However, I was engaged in conversation and I did not notice that what I was packing was discarded shrimp tails. I applied the lighter, took a hit and wound up belching out smoke that would make unfiltered Camels seem like fresh air in comparison.

I spent most of the night puking my guts out.

P.S. Breakfast. 
Unfortunately didn't have this this morning, but still...

<Breakfastbler> full english/scottish: black pudding, white pudding, haggis, bacon, sausage (two types preferably), eggs (again two types), tattie scones, fried bread, beans, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, lots of hot toast

Since We're In The Food Thread... 
a dunker could be a donut...

like dunkin donuts... or something

nutmeg is what people in jail use when they can't get hard drugs. you literally need to eat handfulls of it. Large kitchens usually have big cannisters of the stuff. In most reported uses of nutmeg, the user throws up a few times BEFORE the actual onset of the 'high' which then lasts a long time accompanied by headaches.

It's not something you do for fun. It's something you do to forget bubba was getting tender with you last night. 
Chex Party Mix Tip 
It is that time of year! Yeah!! The one thing I enjoy as much as free time and presents is the Party Mix.

Okay. Melt a half stick of butter (fatty! Fatty! fatty!) and add half a teaspoon of seasoning salt and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Add three cups of raw pecans (halve them if you prefer), and let them soak a good while.

Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and roast them until the aromatic smell overwhelms you.

Let them set and then add them to your standard chex mix.
Your guest will swear you sold your soul to Satan to get the recipe! 
I Love Chex Mix 
I dunno if its the same kind you make, but I simply inhale Chex Mix. It's yummy. 
 
yeah 
Pizza 
Eating left over Supreme Pizza covered with microwaved white rice smothered in soy sauce. Pretty good.

Next time I make a pizza, I'd like to try Pepperoni, bacon and cinnamon all over the cheese. I think it'd be good.

FOOD 
Rice 
I recently discovered chili paste to be the greatest rice condement ever. 
Chili 
Me needs a chili con carne recipe.

But the problem is that it seems that there is no "original" chili con carne recipe. And there are simply too much recipes on the internet.
So what ingredients would you put in your chili con carne?

[x] no dried chili I have a lot of fresh ones
[x] beef no pork
beans, onion, garlic, tomatos ? 
 
OK fry off the minced beef in a large deep pan (like a saucepan), using a little olive oil, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Add a diced onion, stir that in.
When the onion is soft add any chopped peppers, chillis, or anything else veggi-like which you care to throw in. Stir these in.
Frantically dice some garlic (I love garlic so I add loads). Throw the garlic in, stir it in, then quickly add 1 or 2 tins of chopped tomatoes.
Now to get the "Chilli Con Carne" flavour you must at this point add some key ingredients:
1 - some Cumin powder. Not too much, not too little. Like half a tea-spoon for a couple of people.
2 - some Corriander powder, or seeds, not the leaves, they taste like soap, which is right for some dishes but not Chilli Con Carne. A little bit more than the amount of Cumin you added.
3 - some fresh Ginger. Powdered ginger will work, but I prefer fresh stuff. Easiest way to prepare it is to take the skin off (or rind, or whatever you wanna call it), then finely dice the rest up with a sharp knife.
4 - Add a can of kidney beans. No Chilli Con Carne is Chilli Con Carne without them.

Allow this to gently simmer for about half an hour, with ther lid on.

Then, just before you serve it, add some large slices of lime, just a little bit, to be removed again before eating. Leave the skin on the lime. Or squeeze a little lime juice over the chilli before eating :P 
You're Makin' Me Huuuungry! 
 
Hmm 
Also oregano.

Oh, and brown the onions, garlic, some chopped chilis and a cube of dry beef stock in an equal parts mixture of butter/oil before adding the beef to fry.

Once the beef is cooked to your tastes then add the veg/beans (I like sweet peppers, kidney beans, haricot beans and mushrooms myself, but it's up to personal taste).

Then yeh, cumin, corriander (I would have said slightly less than the amount of cumin, but personal tastes), some whole chilis, oregano, dash of tumeric, bit of paprika and salt/pepper to taste. Allow it to simmer for 30-45 minutes then put in the oven at ~90 C for as long as you can not eat it (about 6 hours is ideal).

I've probably missed some stuff there, but that's basic chili (with mince ofc, you can also use steak cuts (or both. and pork :), in which case you can marinate the cuts for uber chili) 
Sounds Good I Love Garlic Too 
Ginger Lime and Corriander? sounds interesting
How much ginger do you put in?

Chilli Con Carne with beans is chili con carne con beans, but i like beans ^^ 
Dont Put Too Much In 
or else the dish will just taste of ginger. Like 1 heaped teaspoon of fresh or 3/4 of dried.
I never really weigh or measure anything when cooking, just do it by eye or common sense/combination fo the two.......

Also oregano in Chilli Con Carne? I never tried that before........ interesting. 
Also Burned Or Overcooked Garlic 
tastes nutty/disgusting, which is why I dont put the garlic in until just before the tomatoes go in. 
I'm Getting Hungry 
sounds good too 
 
So I cooked the chili today:

ingredients: beef, garlic, tomatos, onion, beans, cumin, origano and I made a paste of chilis, to be precise these:
http://www.seedsofchange.com/garden_center/product_details.aspx?item_no=PS15426
But the problem was that I really burnt my fingers so badly with those puriras when I made paste of them, I still feel the pain a bit. LOL I didn't know that this was posible.

But it tasted good :) 
Chili 
I add corn to my Chili, mixes nicely with the other flavours. 
Looking Forwards To Lunch 
Morrisons (supermarket) Value Sausage and Mash ready-meal. �0.80p 
Thanks, Internet 
I read that as Valve Sausage 
FOOD 
I've been dating a girl who's studying at the Cordon Bleu, so have been living off some pretty amazing leftovers of late. Last night was fresh lobster, so we made some lobster tacos. 5/5 would eat again.

Related: if you ever make fajitas, etc, you've got to start making your own tortillas if you aren't already. So easy and so very tasty.... 
P.s. 
as far as value meals go, you can't beat that Tesco "Everyday Value" Lasagne. �3 for about 1.5 kilos of pure beef-style meat and cheese flavoured dairy product. Bargain!

My Recipe This Week 
My gf went on vacantion for a week and told me to pillage fridge, so on monday i made a big pan full of all her leftovers, and im realy sad that its all gone now, and i actualy have to go to the supermarket and buy soem crapfood wich wil no way be near as good.

It was somewher beteen a french cassoulet and an indian curry.

ingredients:

broccoli
carrots
tomatoes
onion
garlic
kidney beans
courgette
rookworst (dutch smoked sausage)
katenspek (some sort of dutch bacon)
sambal (gf gone, spice it up loads!)
red peppers (gf gone lets crank up the scoville scale some more)
oregano
curry power

served with rice and even more sambal (since icooked it pretty long it wasnt that spicy afterall)for full satisfaction

completly agree with ricky, you dont want to burn the garlic only throw that in when you either almost done or got enough fluids going around so it doesnt burn 
Replyingtothenutmeg Thing 
heard that about that aswell, in my teens one afternoonmy and2 other friends smoked oen herb from the kitchen shelf each.I went for oregano and had a great day (maybe it was the placebo kicking in though)i think my 2 friends did nutmeg and cinamon but i' m not sure about that at all, maybe the oregano worked afterall:P 
Garlic 
Also, if you are frying the garlic, you can put it with the first ingredient if at least you put as much food on the frying pan as you did with oil or butter. The garlic won't burn before the rest, even if you turn the heat to the max. It will get half-fried, half-boiled, and will taste great.

Fried pork chops with just garlic and salt taste great this way. In fact, i like the garlic done that way more than the meat ... haha.

A small, oven safe dish. Ideally it would be small in diameter (4 inches or so) and a couple of inches deep. I have a cast iron butter melting dish but really the only advantage that it has is that it holds the heat.

A regular sized baking sheet.

Now you need to either make your own biscuit dough or buy the type that you pop open by hitting them against the edge of the counter. I use the plain biscuit recipe that you can find at pauladeen.com but almost any type will do. Stay away from croissants as they are too flaky, you want a biscuit that can absorb some oil.

Peel a whole bulb of garlic and slice each clove into 3 or 4 slices longwise and put it into the oven safe dish and then pour some olive oil into the dish until it covers the garlic by just a hair. Put it into the (cold) oven off to the side so that a baking sheet will fit as well. You can add spices to the garlic if you want to but don't go overboard. A touch of salt, black pepper and oregano works but none is really necessary.

Now set your oven to 425 (or whatever the biscuit recipe calls for) and as soon as it is preheated (don't let the garlic stay in too long past that stage, it will get lonely) pop in your baking sheets worth of raw biscuit dough in biscuit sized lumps and bake it for however long the recipe calls for. Generally somewhere in the 12 minute range. Basically you want a tan top on the biscuit.

Remove both the garlic and the biscuits at the same time. The garlic should have browned a bit and the oil should have been bubbling when you put in the bread.

When the biscuits are done slice them in half like an English muffin and spoon some of the garlic\oil on top and eat. Careful when eating as the oil may be hot at first.

There's a restaurant a few miles from me (The Stinking Rose in San Francisco) that specializes in garlic dishes and they serve something quite similar to this.

If you use the premade dough this probably takes about 10 minutes of your time to prepare (most of that in peeling the garlic) plus cooking and preheating time. If you make your own dough you can probably add at least 10 minutes. Soda (not yeast) based biscuits work best.

If you like tomatoes a thin slice or some small wedges work on top of the garlic\oil for a brochette type thing. 
Interesting 
First time i see combining sweets and garlic. I have to try that when i have time.

About the title, in the dictionary it puts both terms as synonymous, but what that woman at pauladeen.com does can't be considered a cookie. It is close to the ingredients of a croissant without the layers of puff pastry and without eggs. If i were to give it a name, I've been making sweets from basic ingredients for a decade and, and what i know is that that kind of dough is used mainly for puff pastry and milk bread.

About that web, i advice you to look for another, that one barely explains the things, you should aim for one web that has at the very least the same or more text size as you used with your recipe, or go to the library for something similar. One with at least one or more photos would be recommendable too. It would be prefect if it explains things outside recipes too.

The second reason is that that woman uses in some recipes ''shortening''. Shortening is dangerous, it has been labelled as carcinogen and banned in many countries, including mine. Be careful.
