Site/community/mod philosophy: I fight for the users. (and also the site.)

Eating philosophy: yum, everything tastes so good. I'm originally from Texas, so I do love my Mexican food and barbecue, but I love just about everything else too.

Cooking philosophy: enjoy yourself! Don't measure unless you need precision, don't rush if you've got time, taste everything, and make enough for leftovers.

comment How to choose the right kind of flour?
So, assuming you add in a recipe so that people have a chance of figuring out what happened, you're inviting answers that say both "here's what bread/all-purpose, bleached/unbleached are for" AND "the problem with your mom's rolls could be X, Y, or Z (which might be nothing to do with flour)"? Really seems like two questions in one, and we do put things on hold when they're too broad.

comment How to choose the right kind of flour?
Also, the deal about your mom's rolls might be best posted as a different question. There are a lot of other things that could be going on besides flour, and helpfully answering that is going to require a bit more detail - a rough recipe would be good (usually rolls means yeast, not baking powder).

comment Can meat freeze from the inside out?
@VectorLightning It might help if you read the title as a summary of the question, and tried to focus on the full question asked in the body. You've still answered the question, because you've said it's possible but unlikely, but you haven't exactly explained why you think that's the case, and you've focused a little more on your joke scenario :)

comment Can meat freeze from the inside out?
@Philip On the other hand, since the claim there is that the turkey doesn't actually freeze until 26F, then for the OP's turkey to have frozen, it'd have to have been below 27F and thus shouldn't be labeled fresh.

comment What is the procedure for Pillsbury cookies?
Welcome to Seasoned Advice! Given that you mention a rolling pin, I guess you're talking about Pillsbury sugar cookies, for decorating? And what's the answer you mentioned reading?

comment crunch and crispy honey cookies
Welcome to Seasoned Advice! Could you please post the recipe? It's hard for people to know what to tell you to change if they don't know where you started.

comment Can I use ocean water to cook my pasta?
@logophobe The issue is whether it's more convenient than buying salt!

comment Can I use ocean water to cook my pasta?
The CDC says you need to boil water for only one minute below 2000 feet (and if you're doing this you're at sea level). If you're cooking pasta, you're surely boiling longer than one minute, so I wouldn't think you'd need to pre-boil it.

comment If a recipe calls for canned beans and I want to use dried beans, what do I need to do to the dried beans first?
@PaulWarrenSnellPhD If you have a new question, please post it as a question. Editing an existing question is not the right way to ask. That said, I believe this is exactly your question, and is already well-answered: cooking.stackexchange.com/q/434/1672
