comment Cup measurements: shake or scrape?
Problem is you might not be able to use your favorite recipe. But I agree (coming from a country where measuring with cups is not very common): by weight is more accurate.

comment Should tuna steaks sit out before cooking?
Given the very high temperature of a frying pan (particularly for beef steak), do 15°C really make that much of a difference?

comment 'Lighter' version of American breakfast
That's some really good suggestions, exactly what I was looking for. Some of the things (like the Turkey bacon) are not obvious to everyone.

comment Use any part of an animal for making stock/broth?
In my case I just used bones and meat (and fat) to make something in between stock and broth, I guess. I suppose I just have to skim of the fat from the top and it should be fine. Thanks.

comment What herbs and spices should a beginner cook have?
I'd also recommend dried chili flakes (or whole) to spice up sauces etc. They're usually really easy to get in any supermarket. I often use it for tomato pasta sauces.
