Enjoyed listening to this episode. I, for one, find your "listen to me while I'm doing something" episodes quite interesting.
You commented on red beans and sausage preparations. If you had any recipes, tips, tricks, and methods to share on cajun cooking, I'd love to hear an episode or two about that!
Thanks for the great episodes.

Thanks for the comment, glad to hear you enjoy these things. As far as the Cajun food, I could try it but normally my wife is the one who makes these dishes, except one time I did the red beans and sausage in the Crock-Pot when she was out of town so I might be able to handle that. I could ask her to do her own episode, but somehow I don't think that's going to happen haha!

You Learn Something New Everyday
I cannot tell you how many times I have stood in the kitchen trying to level off the vegetable shorting in the measuring cup, only to have to try and scrape it out afterward. Then, I would have to work even harder to wash the shortening that remained out of the measuring cup. Imagine my shock and excitement when I listened to your podcast, and realized that the rest of the world has been holding out on m by not sharing the brilliance of the displacement method of measuring shortening. They are jerks, and you may be my new hero as I approach the holiday baking season. I was truly pleased to learn there is an easier way. Thank you.

Haha it's good to know that this was helpful. I gotta give credit where it's due, though. It was my mom that taught me this when I was probably 10 or 12 years old. She knows how to do basically everything.

I've made these twice in 2 days now... Couldn't resist. I've upped the chocolate chips a bit since I'm using gluten free flour and it needed a bit more chocolate to cover that up.
Thank you very much for sharing and inspiring me to make cookies - haven't made them in years. :)
