Amazon has them. Only problem is you gotta buy them by the kilo.

If I don't have or don't like an ingredient that is just for flavor, I just leave it out or replace it with something similar. stir

Kilo? That sounds like something I don't want to buy.

The Four Ingredient Cookbook is available used for $2-4


Found a 60 Ways to Cook Ground Beef.

Either one or both are useful

It is definitely frustrating... There are sites out there, like this one below that has a substitution list of ingredients. This has always helped me. https://food.unl.edu/ingredient-substitutions

But you're right, why put the thing you have to go to a Halal store for when you can just use XXX

Whole Foods is overpriced, Trader Joe’s is much better, but they probably are not in Kentucky.
Cactus. I though Mathis was just down the road from Corpus. Do you ever go to Swinneys Switch for fun?

Swinneys Switch for fun? What fun can be had at a stop sign? I don't eat out if I'm that close to home. Sep. of 2017 was the last time I've been threw there.

I'm on the west side of the lake. Mathis is my shopping town. I go to Corpus Christi (Calallen) about once a year. It's been about seven years since I have been proper into Corpus. Alice is a shorter drive and not as crowded, but only go there two or three times a year to Wal Mart.

You can go to Sandia for fun. We’ve closed down the 534 club several times. They love us there. Or they hate us. Either way, we’ve had a lot of fun there.

Sandia and fun should never be said in the same sentence. I guess going to the post and buying stamps is kind of fun.

You hit on something in modern cuisine that drives me nuts. I know "exotic", and I'm quite adept at using a lot of things most folks have never heard of. But there's a trend over the past 15 or so years to use these weird trendy quirky ingredients that even if you can find them, you use a pinch of and then never again.

And it doesn't really add anything.

Here is one of the simplest and best cookbooks in my library. I've yet to find anything in it I didn't like.


I bought this book since you suggested it. Any favorite dishes in there? The reviews were pretty good and it was only $5 so figured I can give it a shot. I like a physical cookbook for some reason vs. reading them online while trying to prep the food.

Call me crazy.

When I was stationed in Corpus the first time I saw the Selena statue I aske one of the locals why the had a statue of a hooker on the waterfront. She was not amused.
