Just someone who likes to cook. I enjoy experimenting with canning and bread making, and trying all kinds of (vegetarian) cuisine. Currently into learning cheese making.

comment How do you peel garlic easily?
i'm voting you up, because even though your post was against teh roolz, it's still the most efficient way, and it addressed the question perfectly.

comment What to use instead of white wine in recipes?
perhaps Jake is on the right track. rather than using a wine claiming to be non-alcohol, it would be easier/safer to just use an unsweetened fruit juice.

comment What's the simplest method to cook rice?
@Aaronut - understood. my apologies. the original question stressed "fail safe", so i felt a rice cooker qualified, since it's the ONLY "foolproof" way i've found. it has become an essential a tool in my own kitchen, and is no more specialized to me than a knife or a toaster oven.

comment What's the simplest method to cook rice?
i'll echo Thursagan. just get a rice cooker -- there is no other way i've found that is as foolproof. as for enumerating the process by which it's better, i have no idea. i consider it magic. but if you want rice that fits your qualifications, seriously... get a rice cooker.

comment How can I get more umami in a veggie burger?
i'm sure it's quite similar to maggi. MSG is basically the same thing -- all natural and umami.
