comment Can cheesecake be cooked without a spring-form pan?
You can also just get a deeper cake pan to accommodate the depth and water bath.

Like a lot of foods, there are many strong opinions. While I'd agree that's it's better warm, you definitely can eat it cold.

Yes, it's usually served as a dip

"Chickpea puree with sesame paste" sounds like hummus. Are you sure you need to do anything to it? I'd think you could just eat it.

This seems to make a lot of assumptions about the OP's process.

comment What purpose could baking soda and cream of tartar serve in a meatball recipe?
In addition to the tenderizing, alkalizing things before baking can give the Maillard reaction a boost as well.

comment Canned yams vs. fresh
Is there a prior step like "Mashed yams, either canned or cooked fresh"? Since they'd have to be cooked before mashing, once they're in the pan, it'd be all the same.

comment How can I make nutritional yeast?
As pointed out on other answers, this will be a different strain of yeast.

comment Candied almonds made In a crock pot didn't harden, are still gooey
The sheet pan is a good idea. Given that most slow cookers max out around 215F, I don't think they get hot enough to really "candy" anything.

comment How to store cheesecake for long-term?
I would think that a cheesecake (or anything) surviving that long only wrapped loosely in foil would be an anomaly. Without being wrapped tightly, I'd expect at least freezer burn.
