re: Gumbo Troubleshooting - Nuts
I guess the best way to describe it is that when I combine the roux and stock, they separate. Imagine oil and water in the same pot; it's the same idea just with the roux and the stock. [quote]Are you adding the stock slowly while mixing or all at once? [/quote] I've tried adding hot roux by...

re: Gumbo Troubleshooting - Nuts
[quote]Dissolve?[/quote] Prudhomme's term taken from the recipe, not mine. The roux and stock never seem to incorporate. This makes sense since the roux is oil and the stock is water, but whenever I do it there seems to be a pretty severe separation between the roux and the stock; they don't w...

Gumbo Troubleshooting - Nuts
I've been making a chicken and andouille gumbo for years now and I have always had the same problem. I follow Paul Prudhomme's recipe pretty much to a T and get my roux to a nice reddish, dark brown/black color. While the gumbo comes out fantastic and the flavor is always on point, I can never ...

re: Buying Furniture from Rooms To Go in BR... - Nuts
Bought a bed from there a few years ago. Decent quality, still looks good and it wasn't expensive. Don't remember how much I paid for delivery, but they showed up when they said they would and put it together in less than five minutes. Wasn't a bad experience at all, and the bed is holding up...

re: Favorite Ginger Beers - Nuts
I know it's not a ginger beer, but Blenheim's pink cap has a very nice spice to it and pairs extremely well with Buffalo Trace bourbon. Add a lime and to it and you've got yourself a hell of a cocktail. ...

re: Meatball Recipe? - Nuts
The best advice I've ever received concerning meatballs is to add way more bread crumbs than you think are necessary. Like way more -- almost equal parts meat to bread (volume-wise). Don't be lazy with them, either. You don't want to buy store-bought bread crumbs, use day old french bread or othe...
