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 Gummy residue from baking spray/oil
not sure if it will work or not, but perhaps a soak overnight in a mild acid solution (like vinegar or lemon juice) would help.

comment How can I make McDonald's type French Fries
i agree - kenji not only tells you how to do it, he reverse-engineered WHY they are so singularly good, and explains it so it makes perfect sense.

comment how to curb the smell of fish?
i believe they are all the same -- it's the way they work that's really key. i haven't tried any others, but i can't see why they would work any better (or worse).

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.
