re: Completely messed up a gumbo by having the roux break. Need help - NDA13112
That was kind of my plan. I was making the roux in that pot and the gumbo in a large stock pot. My thought process was to incorporate half of the stock into the roux in the le crusset pot before adding that to the stock pot but I didn't get a chance. That make sense because the roux was extre...

re: Completely messed up a gumbo by having the roux break. Need help - NDA13112
The homemade stock was just turkey carcass, onions, carrots, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme, and parsley. I make it every once in a while for special occasion dinners and haven't ever had an issue. I honestly don't recall whether I heated it up in the past but I'm lazy so I probably just had ...

re: Completely messed up a gumbo by having the roux break. Need help - NDA13112
I tried boiling and whisking like hell, even putting a small amount in another bowl and tried using an immersion blender to see if it would incorporate before trying the whole pot and that wouldn't work either....

Completely messed up a gumbo by having the roux break. Need help - NDA13112
So let me start by saying that I love this community and nowhere else can you get such great information about South Louisiana cooking. I'm from New Orleans, I cook a bunch, love to cook, and love the science behind why you do things. I'm generally above average at cooking almost everything I atte...

re: "The catch" happened two years ago, today - NDA13112
[quote]Not as good as Jarvis's catches against Arky in 2012 and 2013 imo [/quote] Look, you can argue back and forth about Landry vs OBJ at LSU and mistakes that OBJ made vs his impact but let's be realistic. That is possibly the greatest catch at any level of all time. Gloves or not, he was o...

re: This is life on $7.50 an hour - NDA13112
I'm not insensitive to how tough it is but this is pretty misleading. The first item is Income and though it says she makes $7.50 an hour, they say she makes $240 every 2 weeks which is $6,240 per year. That means she's only working 16 hours per week... Yeah, my income is going to be pretty low t...

re: Baby coming, need help with frozen meal ideas - NDA13112
Thanks everyone for the comments and suggestions. One thing is that I love to cook and primarily do the cooking in the house. I cook and she does the dishes so I imagine I'll be doing the dishes for at least a little while. I'm trying to limit the dishes I have to do so we hit up Costco for di...

re: Baby coming, need help with frozen meal ideas - NDA13112
Thanks, but yes, this is for my wife and I, not the baby. I know we're from Louisiana but I think it'll be a while before the baby is eating gumbo, red beans, and crawfish pies! Haha...

Baby coming, need help with frozen meal ideas - NDA13112
Title says it all but my wife is due in a few weeks with our first one and I'm trying to help make things easier for she and I don't have to worry about cooking those first few weeks. I'm trying to come up with some meals that would freeze/reheat well. I bulk cook a lot and food save into indivi...

re: Looking to buy a John Folse cookbook which one is best IYO? - NDA13112
Sure there may be cookbooks with better recipes but I think The Encyclopedia is one of the best overall cookbooks out there. It's beautifully done. The recipes are great and the pictures are fantastic. It's a staple that has a little bit of every type of Louisiana cuisine. FWIW almost everythi...
