I'm interested in bread, sous-vide, food preservation, dairy, and trying new food.

It seems to me the more authentic the Mexican food the more likely you can order tortillas as you would any other side.

comment How can I make my icecream soft as it is too hard to carve straight from the fridge?
You recommend xanthan gum so often that I wonder how I have gotten along for so long without having any. It's now at the top of my list of new ingredients to experiment with.

comment frozen blueberries kept thawed
@Foodrules - To be clear- I agree with you that they are probably not still good. I objected only to the statement that liquid in the bag would indicate that they are bad.

comment frozen blueberries kept thawed
I don't know if I agree with this. Depending on how well they were kept frozen, there could very well be an accumulation of juice when they thaw even if they are perfectly good.

comment How long does it take for buttermilk to go bad?
@justkt - I haven't used powdered buttermilk. Is it acidic or just the flavor?

comment what is the purpose of adding oil to balsamic vinaigrette slowly?
To ease the process- as with mayonnaise- support your bowl with a wet towel coiled around the base and put your oil in a squeeze bottle to better control flow.

@JustRightMenus - I used that substitution for a long time. I switched to real buttermilk because, although the acidified milk has a similar texture, real buttermilk has a lot more flavor.

comment Do I need a stand mixer to make good pizza dough? If so what should I get?
The few mixers I use have different kneading motions and work well with different dough consistencies. If your dough is bouncing around in the kitchenaid that means your dough is far too dry.

comment Why use yeast instead of baking powder?
I am interested what recipe you are looking at that calls for yeast where baking powder would work. Yeast risen pancakes would fall into this category but it seems to me that the two are not so often interchangeable.
