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 Stove top Sushi rice - Which method?
@Hannele, thanks for that input. I've never made sushi with rice on the outside before, so that is a really good point.

comment Stove top Sushi rice - Which method?
@Devtron, tomatoes are from America, not Italy, so pasta sauce is not authentic either.

comment Stove top Sushi rice - Which method?
@sven, it's all good, just want to learn how I can make my answer better. I also read that you need special rice to make sushi.... But it was so time consuming I just don't bother, and I love how my sushi tastes!

comment Stove top Sushi rice - Which method?
If you're gonna vote me down, at least tell me why please! I make sushi using rice cooked with this method. So it's a perfectly reasonable answer.

You should probably rephrase your question because "better" is subjective and could mean pretty much anything.

comment What oil is best for seasoning a cast-iron skillet
Mineral oil is a petroleum byproduct. It can be food grade, but keep that in mind when using it to season something you cook on. Personally I would stick with a vegetable oil.

comment What's the minimum amount of oil for making popcorn?
Maybe it depends on how much popcorn you make. I usually do 1/3 or 1/2 cup. Never been greasy.

comment How does one tell if a jalapeno is spicy?
@MargeGunderson... LOL... That is kinda gross! I think the striations are genetic, so not all jalapeños get them. I'm not 100% sure about the age but it makes a certain amount of sense that they would get more as they grow larger.

comment How does one tell if a jalapeno is spicy?
I've heard that the striations actually have nothing to do with heat level but how fast the pepper grows. The striations are like stretch marks.
