I’m a fan of the Pioneer Woman show on Food Network and last week there was a news article where some Asians felt like slurs were made by Ree Drummond, the host of Pioneer Woman because during one episode her family did not look very thrilled because she had cooked Asian wings for supper.
She faced backlash for what some called as promoting anti – Asian sentiments. That is the biggest bunch of malarkey I’ve ever heard just because her family was not a fan of an Asian recipe. I don’t like recipes with Brussel sprouts. Does that make me anti – vegetable farmer? Does that mean I promote anti – farming sentiments if I were to say I despise that vegetable?
This country really is turning into a bunch of snowflakes that are too easily offended at anything. One of my favorite John Wayne quotes is “Life is hard, it’s even harder when you are stupid.”
Speaking of cooking, I’ve been trying to master a fried fish batter and have not had any luck. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. If anyone has any suggestions, please send me an email with some helpful hints.
My fried fish always come out of the grease and the crust feels wet. I want that crumbling, semi – hard crusty fried fish texture. I’m not sure if it is the type of grease I’m using, the pre - batter process or if my oil isn’t hot enough. Any advice you can offer is appreciated.
