Bread Pudding - How to Make Bread-Pudding with Sauce | Cuban Recipe | Pundรญn o Budรญn de Pan Cubano

If you are looking for a ๐›๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž that will WOW your friend and family? I have something to share with you. This bread pudding recipe was passed down to me by a friend who ran a Cuban Bakery in Little Havana, Miami, for many years. According to websites like Ubersuggest, there are over 135K searched a month for bread putting and over 60K for bread pudding recipes on Google. So, can I WOW you with a simple homemade bread pudding recipe. The answer is simple, ingredients! I love southern-style bread pudding with Bourbon, as much as I like the Cuban version with raisins. Anywhere I visit that has bread pudding on the menu, whether on Myrtle Beach or New Orlean, you can't go wrong with bread pudding. And while some have been six or seven, just as many have been a perfect ten. My bread pudding recipe is a mix of a traditional ๐‚๐ฎ๐›๐š๐ง ๐›๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐๐๐ข๐ง๐  or Budรญn de Pan as it is appropriately known, with the southern charm of Paula Deen and a touch of spice from the Caribbean. I have literally taken my three favorite bread pudding recipes and combined them into one. ๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐Œ๐š๐ค๐ž ๐๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ ๐๐ฎ๐๐๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š๐ง๐ ๐’๐š๐ฎ๐œ๐ž As I mentioned before, the key to this bread pudding recipe is ingredients. I often see bread pudding recipes on cooking channels and YouTube using soft, white, sliced bread, and that is just wrong! When you use sliced bread, you end up with a bread pudding that is dense, often dry, and not very appetizing. I believe that the best bread for bread pudding is Cuban bread. Taken that that is a rarity on my side of the woods, I often have to settle for either Frech or a Baggette. But I do prefer the Frech over the bagged. The porosity (holes) found on Cuban and Frech bread makes them ideal for an award-winning bread pudding. We'll need a loaf that is 5-6 days old! I often put it in the fridge to keep it from molding, although it usually requires a couple of days to acquire the right texture. We are looking for bread that is hard, like a crouton. We are going to cut it into ยฝ to ยพ inch cubes. With that out of the way, we can focus on the filling, which, if you know about Cuban recipes, it may notice that it resemble that of a Cuban Flan, and that is because it is! We'll start by separating five eggs. We are going to add one can of sweetened condensed milk, one can of evaporated milk, and one cup of whole milk. The original recipe calls for heavy cream, I did have any, so I cheated and used whole milk, but I think I like that better. It is not like this thing doesn't already have ten thousand calories! After adding a pinch of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract, we will stir thoroughly and set it aside. But not before we talk about liquor. It is pretty customary on my side of the woods to add liquor to the bread pudding, and the usual choices are Whiskey, Spiced Rum, or Bourbon. However, after trying just about everything under the sun, I think that Grand Manier tops my list! If kids are going to be indulging in this recipe, consider adding to the sauce instead. About a quarter cup will do! And trust me, it makes a huge difference. We now need to make a dry caramel. If you are familiar with my channel, I have done this several times already. Place 1 cup of white sugar in a non-stick pan over low heat and wait until the sugar melts. Shake it from time to time to ensure equal melting, and that is it! Pour your caramel into the mold, and let it cool. As I mentioned in the video, there are specialized bread pudding molds available. You often find them listed as "steam bread pudding mold," I don't make this often enough to have a dedicated mold for it, so I use a porcelain one. Something else you may find a little odd about my recipe is that I am using a ยผ cup of fruit cake mix and a ยผ cup of raisins. The raisins are part of the traditional ๐‚๐ฎ๐›๐š๐ง ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐๐ข๐ง ๐๐ž ๐ฉ๐š๐ง, and the fruit cake mix is something I started using after living in the Caribbean. Fruit cake mix is popular in Trinidad and Jamaica with recipes called sweet bread and rum cake. With your caramel cool, add a layer of bread, followed by a layer of dry fruit and raisins, followed by more bread, and so on. We can then pour our egg custard mixture over it and let it soak for 15-30 minutes before placing it in a preheated 400-degree oven for 50 minutes. Meanwhile, we can make the bread pudding sauce by melting a stick of butter over medium heat and adding a ยฝ of sugar, brown sugar, and heavy whipping cream. As soon as it comes to a boil, take it off the heat, and add a tablespoon of vanilla extract and a ยฝ cup of water. Stir it and pour it over your bread pudding!

Tips on Woodworking for Beginners on a Budget!

Are you looking for woodworking tips? Over the last few weeks, several subscribers of the Cuban Redneck DIY Channel have suggested that I make videos on Tips on Woodworking for Beginners on a Budget! That is extraordinarily flattering but something very puzzling at the same time. That is because, unlike many woodworkers here on YouTube, I am not formally trained. Everything I know was learned on the job and, more often than not, pretty. My focus is always on the finished product. How I get, it is not essential. When I start a woodworking project, I always have a picture in my head. Of the finished product, more often than not, I don't work from plans. I usually build as I go. So when not one, not two, but over a dozen subscribers tell me that I should consider making videos about Tips on Woodworking for Beginners on a Budget! I started thing what kind of video I could make that would be of interest to those just getting started on woodworking and on a budget, much like me! I am not sure if this is what my audience means when they say make videos on Tips on Woodworking for Beginners on a Budget! So, I'll give this a try and hope to get some feedback and guidance from your guys! Tips on Woodworking #1 The first woodworking tip of this video is about safety. I showed this before but was embed in another video, and I am not sure if many people caught it. A table saw zero clearance insert is something that I recommend every woodworking rookie to get. The issue is that few woodworking beginners go out and buy a $2000 or $3000 table saw. It is tough to find ready-made accessories if you have an entry-level table saw, as my General International TS-4100. Therefore a lot of rookies disregard the zero clearance insert all together. Some don't cut little pieces altogether. If you find yourself in a bind a need to cut some thin pieces in an entry-level table saw that is not equipped with a zero clearance insert, consider laying down several layers of painter's tape lover the blade throat. This is not perfect, but a safer choice than a half-inch gap next to your bade. Tips on Woodworking #2 My second woodworking tip for this video has to do with the table saw's blade position. Knowing where the center of your table saw's blade shaft is related to the deck is just as important as knowing the blade's path. The best I know how the find the center of the blade's shaft in relation to the deck is by removing the blade and tracing a line with a pencil from one tooth at the top t a corresponding one at the bottom. After installing the blade back on the table saw, we use a square to put the line at 90 degrees vertically and then transfer the line to both sides of the throat insert. This is sometimes called finding the high point, and it is essential for setting an accurate cutting height. The second mark is your blade's path. To find this align a straight edge on one side of the blade and draw a mark on your deck all the way to the fence. You need to do this on both sides. Having this second mark is very helpful when cutting rabbets and other types of blind cuts with great accuracy. Tips on Woodworking #3 My third woodworking tip is more of a tool or tool hank than a tip per se. If you have a speed square, you know that they are faithful companions for your portable circular saw and jigsaw. If you don't, you should consider getting one. I have owned several, and I have to say that you can't touch the aluminum ones from Harbor Freight Tools for the money. Speed squares are awesome for cross-cutting small pieces of wood, but not very accurate for 20 or 30 inches long pieces. We can fix this by adding a 1-inch aluminum square to the square edge without the lip! To do this, drill both pieces at one time while holding them together. We then need to countersink the holes to accept some 6-32 flat head screws. Proceed to tap the speed square, fix the two together, and you have yourself a pretty accurate circular saw cutting guide, and a lot more precise than many cross-cutting clamps I have owned. I hope this video was helpful, my name is JC, and this is the Cuban Redneck DIY channel where we do cooking and grilling on Tuesdays and DIY stuff on Friday! Also, know I have a dedicated playlist for each of these subjects. I hope to see you next Friday with another DIY or woodworking project! #Woodworking #TipsonWoodworking #ToolHacks #Woodworkingtips #WoodworkingTipsAndTricks #WoodworkingHacks #woodworkingtricks #WoodworkingTipsAndTricksForBeginners #WorkShopHacks #WorkShopTips #Youtube #Video #YoutubeChannel #Trending #NewVide

Curry Shrimp - How to Make Caribbean Curried Prawns with Coconut Milk and Okra

This ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ recipe is a follow-up to a video I did a little while ago on a Caribbean-style curry shrimp with potato recipe - I said Caribbean, but this was reminiscent of how this dish is prepared in Trinidad and Tobago, and some may even call it a ๐“๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐ข ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž. The video recipe got some mixed reviews, with some people liking it, some questioned it, and others asked why they would put potatoes on a shrimp dish? As I said in the video, this option allows you to make four or five portions out of one pound of prawns. And unless you criticized it without trying, as many people on YouTube are known to do, you may agree that my curry shrimp with potato recipe was on point. I know this is far away from Cuban food and the theme of this YouTube channel but, this week, I am doing it again! This time instead of potatoes, I am using okra, or okro, or quimbombo, or Abelmoschus Esculentus, or ladies' fingers don't matter what you call it. We are making a fantastic curry shrimp recipe. Talking about "curry shrimp." I have been back and forth with my wife and the name of this recipe. Is it curry shrimp or ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ and I am not 100% sure, and the internet can't seem to agree either. If you know the proper name, please comment below. Curry shrimp is one of those simple dishes to make and found all over the Caribbean. It is prevalent in Trinidad and Jamaica, and a quick search on YouTube will prove just that! However, curry shrimp is very easy to overcook, and the result is a rubbery shrimp. This curry shrimp recipe is one I have polished over the years, taking cues from friends and family in Trinidad. If you follow my recipe, you will end up with a perfectly cooked shrimp that's very attractive and full of that unique flavor. Although quite Trini in its flavor profile, this curry shrimp recipe is very reminiscent of the way we cook curry in the Caribbean. ๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐Œ๐š๐ค๐ž ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐’๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐‚๐š๐ซ๐ข๐›๐›๐ž๐š๐ง ๐’๐ญ๐ฒ๐ฅ๐ž My ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž will serve four and has a cooking time of 25-30 minutes. Because of this, it is essential to have everything ready. We will start with the shrimp. I use one pound of tail-on, clean, and deveined frozen shrimp (20-25 Class). I did go ahead and removed the tails, just not a fan, but that is a personal choice. It does nothing to the dish. We are going to season the shrimp lightly with salt, pepper, and Caribbean green seasoning. If you are not familiar with this, know that you can buy it in a bottle. My shrimp are semi-frozen, so I will put them in a strainer so that all the liquid from the thawing process runs to the plate below, which will keep them from getting soggy. The shrimp only need to be marinated for 30-minutes to an hour. More than that, and the seasoning will start cooking the shrimp. While the shrimp marinate, we will shop a half onion, a half of bell pepper, 3-4 cloves of garlic, two small tomatoes, and one scotch bonnet pepper. This last is optional, but I think it plays an important role. We will also cut about a pound of fresh okra into half-inch pieces, and for this particular dish, frozen variety will work well. With everything ready, we will add two tablespoons of oil to a deep saucepan and bring it to temperature over medium heat. Add the okras and cook for 3-4 minutes or until they start showing some browning at the ends. At this point, add ยผ cup of lemon juice. Cook for another minute while stirring it, put them back in the container, and set it aside. Let's add another tablespoon of oil to the pan and our onion and peppers. Cook for 3-4 minutes, add the garlic, cook for another minute, then add the curry powder. Cook for 3-4 minutes and look for oil separation on the bottom of the pan, at which time we will add the coconut milk. Ensure everything is well incorporated, put a lid on the pan, and cook under medium heat for 10 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, add the okras, stiff it, cover it and cook for another 10-minutes. We are now ready for the shrimp. Add the shrimp, stir it, covert it, and cook for 5 minutes. At the five-minute mark, we will add 3-4 leaves of shado beni, finely chopped, stir it, put the lid back on, remove it from the stove and allow it to rest for 4-5 minutes before serving. That is it! This fantastic ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐œ๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค and okra is a favorite at my house and one you will be making over and over again!

Table Saw Zero Clearance Insert

Today, we will be making a DIY ๐“๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐’๐š๐ฐ ๐™๐ž๐ซ๐จ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ for my General International contractor mini table saw. This is a subject that came up several times on social media after my table saw stand video - This came about because several people wanted to know if I had made or purchased a Table Saw Zero Clearance Insert for my General International TS-4100. The answer to that is no. I don't think that it makes much sense for a manufacturer to employ R&D times to develop a product that will probably sell for $30~35 for a $100 table saw. It is essential to point out that this applies to many budget-oriented, portable, or contractor saws in the market today. I looked at Ryobi, DeWalt, Ridgid, WEN, and even one from Harbor Freight, one that shares a lot of resembles with mine. All of these small table saw's have one thing in common: the OEM Throat insert is a clip-on. In other words, it is not bolted in place. This makes making a DIY Table Saw Zero Clearance Insert somewhat challenging and the reason why I opted to make an insert for the OEM table saw throat plate rather than making the entire thing from scratch! ๐–๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐š ๐“๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐’๐š๐ฐ ๐™๐ž๐ซ๐จ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ? In simple terms, the zero clearance insert is either an attachment or a replacement piece for your table saw's OEM throat plate. It reduces the gap between the blade and the throat insert. I consider this an essential accessory for your table saw because it prevents small stock pieces from falling into the blade well. The throat plate is where the blade protrudes through the deck. It allows easy blade swap from the top and prevents pieces from falling into the saw's blade well. It can also reduce tear-out and helps prevent kickback, which can be dangerous. While all saws come with a throat insert, these are around all of the saw's capabilities, including miter cuts, dado blades, etc. To accomplish this, many of them have a gap of as much as ยฝ inch between it and that blade. That is something that is not ideal for fine woodwork. When talking about any Table Saw Zero Clearance Insert and its cost, the top question is always - Do I need one? In my opinion, yes! ๐Œ๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐š ๐“๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐’๐š๐ฐ ๐™๐ž๐ซ๐จ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ As previously mentioned, we would be considering just replacing the entire OEM throat plate with a Zero Clearance Insert under normal circumstances. However, our table saw does not quite let itself to that. Instead, we will be making a plate that attaches to the OEM throat plate, giving us the effect of a Zero Clearance Insert while still using the OEM throat plate. We need something stable at a wide range of temperatures and humidity indexes when it comes to materials. As a woodworker, you may be tempted to make this out of Teak, Sapele, Monkeypod, Mango, Honduran Mahogany, or Purpleheart, but know that when it comes to making a Table Saw Zero Clearance Insert things like MDF, Phenolic, PVC board, and even high-density polypropylene (HDPE) and this was my choice. The objective of the build was to make a plate insert that bolts under the OEM insert. The first thing we need to accomplish is to create a raised channel about .070 height (the thickness of the OEM plate) by .525 the opening. To make this, I created a jig that allows me to bolt the polypropylene to it while I safely run it by the saw! It is nothing more than an "L" shape jig where I'll be bolting my piece. As you probably already saw in the video, the plate is not only not asymmetrical but is also offset to one side. So, that means is that we need to figure out how much is that offset and where does the blade sits within that space. Some type of measuring device a ruler, measuring tape, and even calipers would be ideal but I simply market it with a magic marker and when to work. After mounting the polypropylene piece to the jib and several passes on the table saw I was able to get the insert to fit on the throat plate very nicely. The next step of to cut it to length, which I did with the miter gauge and fit it into place. I'll be using some #4 by ยฝ flat head screws for this. I drilled a total of eight holes on the OEM plate on the drill press. I then proceeded to manually countersink all the holes with a carbide bit. I mounted the Zero Clearance Insert onto the OEM throat plate with a screwdriver. It's important to have a feel for when the screws are tight without the risk of overtightening it or stripping it if you use a drill. With the ๐™๐ž๐ซ๐จ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ in place, we can now mount it. With the blade all the way down. Turn the saw on and raise the blade slowly to where it cuts a perfect gap on the Zero Clearance Insert. That is it! This project took me no more than an hour and without a doubt, it will improve the performance and safety of this table saw. #ZeroClearanceInsert #DIYZeroClearanceInsert #ZeroClearanceInsertTableSaw #TableSawZeroClearanceInsert #Ryobi #DeWalt #Ridgid #WEN #HarborFreight #Craftsman #AMAZON #HomeDepot

QUIMBOMBO (Receta Cubana con Carne de Cerdo) | Okra Stew Recipe with Pork & Plantain Cuban Style

Here is a Cuban Style ๐Ž๐ค๐ซ๐š ๐’๐ญ๐ž๐ฐ ๐‘๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž with Pork and Plantain, also known as Quimbombรณ (pronounced keem-bohm-BO) โ€“ ๐๐”๐ˆ๐Œ๐๐Ž๐Œ๐๐Ž in English means Okra. A vegetable whose origin is heavily disputed, with factions of West African, Ethiopian, and South Asian roots claiming to it. The Quimbombo Cubano is a dish very similar to a Cajun okra gumbo and has its origins in Africa. It is a famous stew in Cuban cuisine, and the slave trade is credited for its introduction to the island nation. The edible green pods of the Quimbombo are an excellent source of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. In this video, we will focus on the Quimbombo Cubano (Receta Cubana de QUIMBOMBO con Carne de Cerdo) with pork and plantain. However, different variations of this dish are widespread throughout the Caribbean. It is also quite popular in New Orleans, where it is often served as a Gump stew with shrimp, crawfish, or chicken. ๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐Œ๐š๐ค๐ž ๐‚๐ฎ๐›๐š๐ง ๐๐ฎ๐ข๐ฆ๐›๐จ๐ฆ๐›๐จ? One of the key ingredients the makes the Cuban Quimbombo unique is plantains. A half-ripe plantain is vital in any traditional Cuban Quimbombo recipe. However, when it came to my recipe, I decided to take all the way to the top by adding pork! To make it, we start with about two pounds of boneless pork ribs, also know as country-style ribs. I love this cut of pork, but people often complain that it is a bit tuff! My remedy is the good old Chinese tenderizing methods of a 50/50 baking soda and salt mix! Start by rinsing the pork with a mixture of water and vinegar. Pat the pork dry with a paper towel, and sprinkle a liberal amount of the baking soda and salt mix. Let it rest in the fridge for about two hours, and you are good to go! It is unnecessary, but I like to rinse the meat again with cool water and re-season it lightly with salt and black pepper. With that step out of the way, we start our Cuban Quimbombo. In a large saucepan, bring a couple of tablespoons of oil to the temperature. Add the okra and sautรฉ it for 3-4 minutes or until it shows brown ends. At this time, add a quarter cup of lemon juice, cook it for another minute or so and then put it back in the container. In the same saucepan, we'll start the pork. Yes, this is a one-pot okra stew recipe with pork and plantain! Sear the pork on all sides for like 2-3 minutes. We are not concerned with cooking it through, just giving it some color. With all sides done, we can add the chopped onion and bell pepper. Cook that for a few minutes, and then add the garlic. Keep stirring to keep the garlic from burning. Then add a quarter cup of white dry cooking wine to deglaze the pan. Crank the heat to high to reduce the wine and clean the bottom of the pan. After a couple of minutes, add one cup of tomato or pasta sauce, along with two cups of beef stock. Mix it thoroughly and wait until it comes to a boil. Add your dry spices while stirring, and then add your plantains. Put a lid on the saucepan and cook under medium heat for 20-minutes. After the 20-minutes, check the tenderness of the plantains. If you can drive a fork into them, go ahead and add the okras, put the lid back on, and cook for another 10-minutes. That is it! This Cuban Style Okra Stew Recipe with Pork and Plantain is a hearty meal that has feed many generations of hard-working people. It is quickly done in 30-40 minutes and one that once you get right, you'll be making over and over again! My friends, my name is JC, and this is the Cuban Redneck DIY channel where we do cooking and grilling on Tuesdays and DIY stuff on Fridays. I thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you in my next video! #QuimbomboCubano #CubanQuimbombo #OkraStew

How to make a DIY Table Saw Stand / Cart with Storage, Dust Collection, Folding Outfeed & Wheels

This ๐ญ๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐ฌ๐š๐ฐ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ฅ๐๐ข๐ง๐  ๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ž๐, table extension wings, storage, dust collection, and folding outfeed is what you may consider part two to the last video I did for my General International table saw. The design goal was to have something compact that did not take too much space in my woodworking garage workspace, and I decided to step the design skills up one level by forcing myself to use only scrap I had lying around the garage. While I made some compromises, the quality and functionality of the DIY table saw stand meat and exceeded the design goals. While fully extended, the table saw stand measures 50 inches X 40. With the extension wings and the outfeed folded down, it only measures 30 inches by 21. The DIY table saw stand plans was all in my head, but I had to admit that I improvised and refreshed my original idea several times along the way. For starters, my original idea for the table saw stand was much grand than this. I had a vision of a wide cart, maybe five or six feet wide, with drawers, doors, and all kinds of design details. However, given the cost of wood as of late, there had to be a compromise. Despite not using premium materials, I am delighted with the functionality, and I intend to make a follow-up video where I will be adding additional functionality. What is in store for the future? Well, I think that a zero-gap plate is a most. However, the blade guard insert for this table saw is somewhat unorthodox and suffers from a significant lapse in engineering. Something else that's in order is both a half table and a full table saw sled. With such a low-quality fence as the one, this table is equipped with a sled is almost a must! Why go through all this trouble? Well, the reality is that nobody makes a table saw stand for the budget-minded woodworking guy. Yes, YET, Delta, Dewalt, and some of the top manufacturers make extension tables for their top-of-the-line table saws. Still, nobody makes one for a contractor or miny saw like the General INternationl TS 4100 like the one I have. ๐‡๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ฆ๐š๐๐ž ๐ƒ๐ˆ๐˜ ๐“๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐’๐š๐ฐ ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ƒ๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ ๐ง Let go over the design as aspects of my ๐ƒ๐ˆ๐˜ ๐“๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž ๐’๐š๐ฐ ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ง๐ Design. The wings. Adding the left and right folding wings to the table saw not only increases the workspace but allows me to cut large pieces on my tiny little contractor saw. If you know anything about woodworking, you know that the saw station is the center of the workshop. This is a place where we sand, assemble projects, glue up, and do many things we are not supposed to do on top of the table saw stand. Having your saw's table extended from 25 to 50 inches is a big deal. The outfeed. Having your table saw's outfeed capabilities extended by almost two feet is also a big deal, not only from the point of view of craftsmanship but also from safety. Many kickback accidents happen when the material gets bind because of not having a long enough outfeed. While two feet is not a lot, it suffices the majority of the type of work that I do since, more often than not, I word with a quarter or half sheets of ply or MDF that I get ripped at the home center the long way. Wheels / Caster! At least for me having the ability to move the saw out of my way is very important. Not only that, this table saw stand is small enough and light enough where I can throw it on the back of my truck and do where ever I have to. Table saw stand storage: As I mentioned before, initially, I was thinking of doors and drawers, but at the end of the day, I decided to leave the bottom of the cart open. In the following video, I will be configuring this area to store my full table sled, my half sled, and I may also build a wedge cutting jig. Trust me when I say this area under the table saw is not going to waste. My friend, my name is JC, and this is the Cuban Redneck DIY Channel. I thank you for watching, and I look forward to having you as a subscriber. For all of you, interest in table saw stand plans as of the release of this video, and I don't have them available. I literally built this as I when alone, and even though it may look like a lot of work, it was not. I just worked on a bit at the time. However, you know what they say, never say never. If there are enough people interested, I may sit down on the computer and make some. As with all my videos, I intend to inspire you. The way you become a better woodworker is by making a little sketch on a napkin and building it!

MEATLOAF Recipe with Oatmeal | How to Make an Easy Gluten-Free Meat Loaf & Best Glaze

Here's How to Make an easy ๐†๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ž๐ง-๐…๐ซ๐ž๐ž ๐Œ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐Ž๐š๐ญ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ and Glaze. Why? Because it is flavorful, moist, delicious, and foolproof! Not only are we going to make a Gluten-Free Glazed Meatloaf with oatmeal, but we are going to be using a 50/50 mixture of pork and ground beef! That is probably closer to the original meatloaf recipe than you may think! Food critics and historians credit Dutch and German immigrants who settled in the Pennsylvania area for this famous American concoction. The American meatloaf is believed to be a close relative of the scrapple, a loaf consisting of a mixture of ground pork and cornmeal, very popular during the colonial era with German immigrants. Why the 50/50 mix of ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ ๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐ ๐›๐ž๐ž๐Ÿ? As we get older, our bodies may struggle with processing large amounts of red meat. The 50/50 pork and ground beef mix does away with some of that and lowers the saturated fat intake. Something else, I know a lot of people are going to argue that why bother with a Gluten-Free ๐Œ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐Ž๐š๐ญ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ? Although there are arguments on both sides, and IMO the gluten craze is more of a marketing ploy than anything else, I will go on record and admit that gluten affects the body in more ways than one. For those with celiac disease, it causes inflammation and damage in their intestinal tracts, among other things. Some early signs include gas, cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation. To me, it makes me slow and lazy, almost like a sugar crash. Not as bad with pasta but definitely with white bread. By replacing the bread crumbs in your meatloaf with oatmeal, you'll be adding more fiber without tasting any difference. It also helps keep the texture of the meatloaf light and helps retain the meatloaf's moisture. However, I do suggest grinding them down to a consistency similar to bread crumbs. As always, please know that the ingredients for my not so ๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐๐ข๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž with oatmeal will be available on my blog at: ๐Œ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐‘๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐Ž๐š๐ญ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ฅ We'll start by running our oatmeals in a food processor or blender to make it finer. One of the most significant issues I have faced when using oatmeal on meatloaf is that if left too chunky, it keeps the meat mixture from sticking together, and it won't stay together. Causing the meatloaf may fall apart as you try to cut it! Ideally, you want to grind the oatmeal to the same consistency as bread crumbs. Once accomplished, let's place it in a small mixing bowl, along with a teaspoon of oregano and a half cup of beef broth. Mix it set it aside, and let's turn our focus on the onion and garlic. After dicing the onion and the garlic, we are going to place it on a skillet and coof it down for about 4-5 minutes, or until they become pretty translucent and soft. Add a teaspoon of salt, cumin, the garlic, and cook that for an additional minute or two. Set that aside as well to cool off. The next step is the pork and the ground beef. Deposit the two packs into a large mixing bowl, along with one teaspoon of salt, black pepper, one package of Lipton onion soup mix. Mix all the ingredients in a motion like kneading dough. These two meat have different colors. The goal is to mix them until they look like one unified color, at which time we are going to add two beaten eggs, the oatmeal, and the onion mixture. Continue to mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, at which time we are going to deposit the mixture into a 5X9 loaf mold and place it in the fridge while we make the glaze. My ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐ ๐ฅ๐š๐ณ๐ž does not have to be limited meatloaf! This glaze is terrific if you are making checking on the grill and even ribs. That is because it is significantly closer to a tangy Carolina barbecue sauce recipe than a traditional meatloaf glaze. To make the meatloaf glaze combine, three-quarters cup of ketchup, two tablespoons of white vinegar, three tablespoons of brown sugar, one tablespoon of onion, and garlic powder, as well as half a teaspoon of salt and freshly ground black pepper. I use a lot of pre-ground black pepper and rarely make a fuzz about it, but in this case, I will! Stir to combine everything and let it sit for 4-5 minutes before using, then stir it again. At this time, we can take our meatloaf out of the fridge and flip it into the center of a 9X13 baking dish or cook tray. If you are using a cookie tray, I strongly suggest lining it with aluminum foil. With wet hands, we are going to redefine the shape of our loaf, pour our glaze over it, and paint it using a brush or spatula. We are then going to place our meatloaf with oatmeal in the center of a preheated 325-degree oven for 60-65 minutes. At which time, we will check for a ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ญ๐ฅ๐จ๐š๐Ÿ ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐ญ๐ž๐ฆ๐ฉ of 155 degrees Farenhigh. #MeatloafRecipeWithOatmeal #GlutenFreeMeatloaf #MeatloafNoMilk #MeatloafNoBreadCrumbs #MeatloafEasy #MeatloafGlaze #MeatloafOatmeal #BestMeatloafGlaze #CarolinaMeatloafGlaze

Curry Shrimp with Coconut Milk and Potatoes | Caribbean Recipe

Here is my easy-to-make ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐’๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ recipe inspired by my travels throughout the Caribbean. I have seen many Indian ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐œ๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค recipes on the internet, but for some reason, it is not what I usually find at local Indian restaurants in my area. I was first introduced to this dish while traveling the Caribbean many years ago. The Jamaican curry shrimp recipe is definitely at the top of my list for many years, but after a short stay in Trinidad and Tobago of a couple of months, the Trini curry shrimp recipe started to grow on me. The differences between the Jamaican curry shrimp recipe and the Trini curry shrimp recipe are very subtle. One thing is no shortage in Trinidad is pepper! Yes, if you are not into spicy food, you better say hold the pepper in everything you order while in Trinidad! From street food like the infamous doubles to tamarind balls, Trini's put pepper on everything. This recipe curry shrimp recipe has a little bit of a kick. I do grow both Scotch Bonnet and another variety which I am not 100% what is called it, packs a punch. I am not into spicy hot food 24/7, but slight pepper is a must for curries, especially shrimp curry and doubles! With that said, that is 100% optional, and although I have never made curry shrimp with coconut milk without pepper, I am sure most people will be okay with it. ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐’๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐‚๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค ๐š๐ง๐ ๐๐จ๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐จ๐ž๐ฌ I told one of my friends what I was doing this week for the channel while preparing to film this video recipe, and the response was typical. Many of my friends love Indian food and predominantly west indies food, but they find it complicated to replicate. That is not the case. This easy-to-make curry shrimp with coconut milk and potatoes take no more than 30-minutes from start to fishing and can easily be replicated by even the most novices cook. It goes without saying that although this is a Trini recipe, I did add my touch. What is that? Wee, I guess you have to watch the video. No, I am just kidding. For this particular instance, I purchase shrimp that was already peeled and deveined but more often than not, I would do this with fresh shrimp my friends bring me. In which case I would have to peel and devein them. I like to save the shells and tails and add them to the water I boil my potatoes. Other than that, this is pretty much a traditional West Indies Trini curry shrimp recipe. ๐Œ๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐‚๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐’๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ As I said before, this curry shrimp recipe takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I think that the key is preparation. The time intervals between steps are short and don't allow time to pause for practice. Let's start by peeling and cleaning the shrimp. If you are using shrimp that have already been deveined and clean, I hope they still have the tails. That is because we are going to use them to flavor our potatoes. Deposit all your shells and tails in the pot you are going to boil your potatoes. Cut 8 to 10 small potatoes in half, add salt, cover them with water, and cook for about 10-minutes. The point here is not to thoroughly cook them but to give them a head start. While that cooks, let's season one pound of extra large shrimp with Caribbean green seasoning and salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix to make sure all the shrimps are covered and place them in the fridge until we need them. After 10-minutes or so, the potatoes will still be quite firm, and that is okay. Let's drain them and let them rest in the strainer. At this point, we are ready to start our curry shrimp. Let's bring about two tablespoons of olive oil to temp and sautรฉ half an onion, half of the green pepper, some garlic, scotch bonnet pepper, and some green onions. Cook that until the onions get translucent, then add three teaspoons of cutty powder. I am using a Caribbean blend called Indi Madras. If you can't find it consider Chief, both are excellent Caribbean curry powder blends. We need to cook the curry for about 3-4 minutes. As it starts o dry and gets dark, we'll add 2-3 small chopped tomatoes and our potatoes. Mix, making sure everything gets covered with curry, then add the ๐œ๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค. Would you please bring it to a boil and cook covered under medium heat for 10 minutes or until the coconut milk has been reduced by 1/3! At this point, we'll add the shrimp, lower the heat to medium-low, cover it and cook for 5-minutes. At which point we'll remove it from the stove, add the shadow benny (culantro), cover it, and let it sit for the coconut milk to thicken. That is it! As you can see, this easy-to-make ๐ฌ๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฆ๐ฉ ๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ž with coconut milk and potatoes takes less than 30-minutes, and it is undoubtedly a fantastic representation of west indies cuisine.
