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 What seasonings give ranch dressing its distinctive flavor?
actually, that may be the entire recipe for a good ranch dressing right there! :) i think it's all about the buttermilk and dill for sure.

comment What are the benefits of using a dedicated rice cooker, rather than just cooking rice in a pot?
another +1 for mentioning Zojirushi. they are magic, i swear. they also are good for steaming veggies, and i have heard you can use them for beans, but i have never tried.

comment Are there benefits to using a lemon squeezer?
well, like i said, they are doing double-duty by also being decoration in my kitchen, so it's not like they are taking up counter or drawer space. as for grapefruit juice, i get mine in a carton. :)

i should have mentioned that i have three different (color coded!) sizes, one each for limes (green), lemons (yellow) and oranges (orange, of course). got 'em at our local mexican market. not sure if i can post links, but here's the lemon and lime one: tinyurl.com/29lmkoo; and here's an orange one: tinyurl.com/2fze4x5

this is what i use, too. they are cheap, easy to clean and store (no counter space needed -- in fact, mine does double duty as decoration by hanging on my wall), and it does a good job.
