I grew up with Nintendo and Game Boy, and now I'm a big fan of iOS games. I play Sims Freeplay, Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower (original and Vegas) and Sim City BuildIt.

comment Is there an alternative and less toxic way to clean an oven than using oven spray?
@Aaronut, wow, thanks for that info. I've seen a lot of homemade cleaning blogs suggest mixing them and have always done so. I guess I'll start using them separately!

@Aaronut, that is a good point. I don't allow animal products in my kitchen, and usually use a mix of Dr. Bronner's soap and vinegar as an actual cleaning fluid.

Never underestimate the power of baking soda. It's amazing how much stuff you can clean with it. To add to this comment, I'd say make a baking soda paste (just add with some water) to work in with the sponge. It's a great abrasive.

comment How long can frosting with butter, powdered sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk, that is covered with fondant be left out of the refrigerator?
Also depends a lot on the temperature. Although I make vegan buttercream (using margarine and soymilk), it does have a tendency to get rather runny if it's hot and humid.

If this is not the right way to do it, then why is it a good method? Also, what is the purpose of all of that butter, which seems a lot for a single bag of cashews.
