Figured I'd resurrect this classic right here. Hopefully CC can stop in once in awhile and give a few tips for the amateurs.

I'm going to attempt my hand at a Shrimp Curry today. Depending on how it goes, I'll post the recipe.




In the beginning there was Andrus, and he was hungry:

Ok....It's got to be Cajun or Creole cookin'. And it's gotta be good! Entree's appetizers, side dishes, the works. I'm doing this for the displaced fans (and for my own appetite) and know one thing for sure... home cooking recipes always seem to be better when I get them from you guys than when I try to pull them off out of some book ;-)

bake 3-5 lbs small red potatoes for 1hr at 350

smash on pan and add seasoning of your choice, butter and cheese I like smoked gouda, feta, or sharp cheddar... cook for another 10min at 450

remove from oven and plate with a freshly made sunny side up egg, finely chopped fresh dill and green onions and of course goes extremely well with bacon and/or sausage.

Ok I recently sold my big green egg to a friend and was in the market for a new grill. I have a camp chef woodwind pellet grill that I love but wanted more of a grill than a smoker. I had a friend from high school who lives in Illinois and works for the company that owns Webber grills. He sent me a link to a site where I could buy Webber grills at a greatly reduced price. I bought a Webber summit 24 inch cooking station for $128.00. This is a close to $2,000 grill so I really hope it comes in with at least most of the parts and if so it’s a huge score.

I have been looking for a good recipe for party meatballs. I have tried the grape jelly ones and one or two others. If you have a good recipe that you wouldn’t mind sharing I’d love to hear it.

Sharing is nice😄
I'm a big fan of Weber grills. The one I have now is a simple kettle grill that I've been using for about 12 years and it's still going strong.

So, we recently moved to a bigger place and were able to start unboxing a lot of stuff we haven't seen in years. Found these cookbooks. The one on the right was from my grandmother when my wife and I got married and the one on the left was Cajun Cook or Billie Bonin. Totally reminded me of this thread. May both RIP. I'll always treasure both.

I would’ve been happy to share the site with you but be glad I didn’t. The site was masquerading as a US owned company but in fact is a Chinese group that tests credit card accounts and eventually they hit you for something big. Thankfully my bank picked up on it and I’ve closed that account and I’m waiting for my new Visa to come in.

Yeah, I actually got the book the day before Katrina made landfall. I was living here in VA/DC at the time and just watching it all was heartbreaking.

Good catch.

I'm making the Cosmic Purple Chicken as we speak. And tomorrow we are having a contactless "drive by baby shower" for my daughter in law. The guests will drop off a gift in the driveway, and pick up a goodie bag lunch, already packaged. Included will be the watermelon,watercress, red onion, pine nut salad that was posted here. Sounds like an odd combination but it is delish.
I've used recipes from here so many times. Thank you! Edited to say that the chicken dish was amazing. I served it over rice. It is very rich tasting...and will be a twice a year, or so, treat. I'd be on my 600 lb life if that was normal eating.
