Didn't we have a thread all about this in MeTa already or am I hallucinating the future again?

Favorite recipe:

Order 1 large pepperoni pizza. Ask that delivery guy calls before coming. When he calls ask him to pick up 6 pack cold beer on way. Pay for pizza and beer. Tip BIG.

You're probably thinking of the original thread that spawned the site's creation.

The tag cloud is kind of hilarious.

Bacon plates is the new beans, don't you know?

Aren't we overthinking.....

No, I can't do it. No snark -- I like the idea.

However, smoke has already won the thread.

Yes, there was a thread about starting a recipe blog where I finally strapped something onto a bed, pulled some chains, and exposed it to the elements.

Then we had a post in Projects about it. That was awesome because people really like it.

Now we have this Meta thread that is really about it instead of a thread that was about something else but turned into being about Bean Plates.

Thanks for the reminder. I've been swamped at work, and had forgotten that I'd said I would try to post recipes. I will try to rectify that situation as soon as I can.

You have that, and I have exams plus everyone in my family is starting to think it's a good time to die. I'm not too worried about the lack of recipes right now, especially since what we have is some pretty good stuff.

Reads through the lens of the date.

There are surprisingly few actual bean recipes in there. I volunteered to bring baked beans to a cookout tomorrow, so if they turn out good I may have to submit it.

At first I thought this was going to consist of links to recipes as comments on MetaFilter. I'm glad that's not the case.

No wonder this place is so full of hot air!

I would really like to see a recipe site like this just devoted to cooking animal protein. It could be called meatfilter.

As I said over at projects... this is awesome! Great work!

Yay! I named this! I love it when I get to take partial credit for something in which I had to do absolutely none of the work but srsly nice job it looks nice

If I cook one recipe a day from this for a year, and then blog about it, can I have a front page post? Or at least a book deal?
