comment How to cook grass-fed, high-fat hamburger on electric stove?
@TFD, but there is a big difference in nutritional value of grass-fed beef, which is the reason I switched in the first place.

@TFD, I'm not sure what your point is - that I should stop eating hamburgers?

Thanks, this did it. I had previously tried a number of temperatures and times, the last down to 275F for fifteen minutes, without getting closed to fully cooked. My latest experiment was 300F+ for ten minutes, flipping every thirty seconds - and the burger was completely cooked.

comment Prevent thin pizza dough sticking
Parchment paper is rated for no more than certain temperatures - Reynolds, for instance is 420 degrees F. Assuming you're cooking pizzas at 500+, it would scorch badly, possibly burn.

comment Need suggestions for ABSOLUTE beginner's cookbook
+1 just for the first line - every beginner cookbook I've bought, gives a recipe but not the thought process behind it. Considering the thousands of variables, they can't describe every step necessary for my precise setup - but they don't explain how to figure out how to make a recipe work. Example - cooking a chicken breast in a pan on an electric stove. It would seem like a simple operation, but even the "Dummies" book only says, "saute over medium-high heat", and that's it. My electric stove has numbers 1-6 - which one is medium? How do I tell if it's done, etc...

comment Does bacon need to be fried until crisp?
3 Kick-ass Bacon Recipes - found the link. The author recommends about 15 minutes also, which confuses me - 15 minutes pre-heated, should be much different from 15 minutes in an oven that is heating the entire time. (granted she says it might need up to 20 mins...). Then again, maybe I don't want a good method to cook bacon. health graph

@stephennmcdonald, I recall reading somewhere (not sure where now), that to cook bacon in the oven, you should put it in when the oven is cold, not pre-heat the oven. Since you mentioned putting bacon into a cold pan, wouldn't it be the same for an oven?
