comment How to treat your saffron right?
I think the biggest reason to not crush it is cosmetic- so you get the little red lines in the finished product.

comment How can I make yogurt at home?
I have noticed that the better the yogurt- the less likely the maker is to know the science behind it. :( My Indian coworker's mother's instructions were decidedly unscientific.

@joe- fridge control is very easy and home brewing shops will carry plug in controllers for less than $50. The problem, as Fuzzy posted above is the space required for a minifridge just for cheese aging.

comment Can I leave out raw already-formed cookies for close to an hour while I wait for the oven to be available?
Melting would be my concern as well. Even if they didn't spread it might adversely affect the resultant texture if they got too warm.

Probably for the same reason that corn tastes better on a cob or turkey on a huge drumstick at a renaissance fair.
