comment What would convert this chili recipe into a Russian chili?
I personally wouldn't describe this as Russian at all. Admittedly my experience is narrow but: I never saw Russian cuisine with so many peppers, and although I did see beans for sale on the market I never saw them used by Russians for anything- only foreigners.

comment What's the secret for Chinese fried rice?
My wife (then fiance) once made a stir fry and mistook fish sauce for soy sauce. The experience was so traumatic I haven't been able to stand the smell of fish sauce ever since.

comment How can I take apart almonds?
Blanching the almonds worked perfectly. @TFD- warming them in the microwave also worked very well and was fast. I was able to slice them almost like slivered almonds. Thanks for the tip!

@Orbling- good point. I thought of dumplings- but I still would want a dumpling the size of a loaf.

comment Baking bread … without crust?
Wow- good idea but poached bread sounds revolting! I suppose crustless bread doesn't sound all that good to begin with.
