  1. @curiouskitkatt so sorry to read this. My condolences to you and your family.
  2. If you’re considering a Big Green Egg, I recommend looking at a Kamado Joe as well. They are both very well made kamado cookers. I went with the Kamado Joe... it came with accessories that I wanted and was cheaper than the Big Green Egg. Also, the Kamado Joe comes with a hinge that makes it easy to open and close the lid. When you try to open & close the lids on the larger Big Green Eggs, it requires a bit of muscle. The hinge on the Kamado Joe makes the weight of the lid a non issue.
  3. Interesting project. Have you considered adding Tanqueray and Hendricks into your comparisons? I think of Tanqueray as a typical London juniper forward gin and Hendricks as one of the first new non-juniper gins.
  4. Jumped on the sourdough bandwagon. Knew the bread baking would be fun had no idea how much I would like tracking down and making sourdough discard recipes. All the sourdough discard recipes that I have tried from the King Arthur website have been winners. Also, the same can be said for all of Andrew Janjigian's sourdough discard recipes. sourdough discard drop biscuits
  5. If the coconut doesn’t stay nice and crispy, a suggestion for next time... enrobe the coconut in chocolate or cocoa butter. The chocolate coating will prevent moisture from getting to the coconut and softening it. Sounds like a tasty batch of ice cream.
  6. For those in Loudoun County, there will be a drive thru market with the following vendors: Profish, Metropolitan Meat, Seafood & Poultry Company, Coastal Sunbelt, and Bear Chase Brewing Company. More information from WTOP: "Shuttered Restaurants Spawn Drive-Thru Market in Loudoun County" by Neal Augenstein on wtop.com --- Profish (lion)
  7. Thank you very much for the information @Deborah Lee!
  8. Beautiful and delicious! Where did you buy the spot prawns?
  9. Ordered a dinner from Clarity today — looking forward to it!
  10. Ranch Gordo pinto beans are cooking in the crockpot. Dinner plan for tonight is pinto beans, sausage, and rice with some green vegetables (possibly frozen spinach). May bake some brownies or cookies for dessert
  11. Sorry, no experience with this kind of bookclub but it sounds interesting. How are you structuring yours? Does everyone cook one recipe from the book and bring it to bookclub?
  12. Did you season & sear the pork chop post sous vide?
  13. Sorry that I won't be able to participate this time. Have fun making tamales! Please post pictures.
  14. @NolaCaine I recommend starting with Kenji's recipes on the Anova site, the recipes at Chef Steps, and Douglas Baldwin's website (links included below). Hope you enjoy sous vide. I like it a lot for cooking chicken and turkey breasts. https://recipes.anovaculinary.com/?searchString=Kenji&categorySlug= https://www.chefsteps.com/gallery?generator=chefsteps&published_status=published&difficulty=any&sort=newest&premium=everything https://www.douglasbaldwin.com/sous-vide.html
