I remember seeing a version you can make yourself, I think in Copykat recipes.
I don't remember ever having a time or place I've lived that I didn't have a can of Old Bay in the cupboard.

I'm not sure I could stand living where I couldn't drive over to the ocean in an hour. I've lived on both coasts, but never inland. It's kind of a way of life for me.

I'm not surprised that you love Old Bay there also. The stuff is just so good!

Love the Amazon! Wonder how much business they get from DC? Maybe we could get a group discount!

That's the size I buy also, Luca. It'll last you for quite some time.

Enjoy! I look forward to hearing about your first use of it and what you think of the results.

I've been dreaming about making a Cajun shrimps recipe since Forrest Gump's Bubba talked about them!
