    Hello, from deep South Texas

    How do you de-vein shrimp?

    My hometown is right on the Texas Gulf coast, so I've cooked a ton of shrimp. The video MsMoffit posted above is perfect. BTW, always buy wild caught in USA shrimp, shells on. The cheap shrimp is usually farmed in some third-world country with no regulations. You want shell on, because the...

    Reflecting on 2022 Harvest

    Sadly, no harvest here. The drought and about sixty days over 100 degrees killed everything, except my five year old oregano plant, and it just barely made it. I grew some basil in a pot in my kitchen window, and it did okay. CD

    Can I cook baby back ribs more than 12 hours?

    I've never done ribs (or other BBQ items) sous vide, but I agree that you can go longer than 12 hours with ribs. Are you going to toss them on the grill after sous vide to put some browning on them? CD

    Think of them as American poutine. :ROFLMAO: Basically, they are crispy fries, topped with shredded cheese, bacon, and other toppings. Mine had pickled jalapeños and some sour cream on the side for dipping. CD

    In search of the best chili - so many spices to choose from

    Chili powder. I make my own from dried chilis that I toast in a skillet, then grind in a spice/coffee grinder. You get a lot more flavor than with store bought chili powder. Paprika. I would think smoked paprika would be used just for the smokey flavor. Just my opinion. Cumin. Called comino...

    Soup Season, anyone got any upcoming soup plans?

    I just made a big pot of beef and veggie soup for my mom. I froze them in one-serving containers that she can heat up in the microwave. CD I also made a broccoli beer cheese soup a few weeks ago using a local Hefeweizen. CD
