I made a delicious paella last night. I still didn't get the socarrat right. Any suggestions? I'm thinking it just needs a little mor time, but how can you tell?

    It can be a delicate balance between a good socarrat and burned rice and even those of us that make paella on a somewhat regular basis don't always get it right. I try to listen for a slight crackling noise to determine when it might be about right. That, and a good sense of smell to detect if you're over scorching the rice.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    That paella looks pretty good.

    I did some Mexican wings and some shrimp quesadillas on the egg. Refried black beans and quacamole.
