I work for a small bioinformatics company and I build websites and applications. I'm currently focused on Python and Django. I love to make my sites/apps responsive, and I'm very interested in software usability.

comment Is there a non-penetrative method for checking cake doneness?
As is the case for all eye-ball recommendations, you need to use complimentary methods. That is why I mentioned the time point. But yes, this is definitely an estimate and should be used as a supplement to other methods.

comment Cooking away alcohol
Who says that wiki is correct? I worked in industrial kitchens for 8 years and a biochemistry lab for 10. My experience says otherwise... Plus, a comment will do - no need for a minus one.

comment Ways to learn to season food correctly?
Good question. Yes, I'd say that approach is a good one (I've done it many times myself). The thing with salt is that you will learn quickly how much is too much ;--)

comment How to make edges on pancakes be crispy and the inside soft
Yah, great point... Forgot to mention that. Actually, although probably not the most sanitary way to do it: I actually wash my hands often in the kitchen, and when they are clean, I "flick" some of the water from my hand onto the hot cast iron, oiled pan to get your "skittered" effect.

comment What herbs and spices are in “Italian Seasoning”?
Yah, I usually use the whole leaf and remove before serving. I am a hot fan, so any Mexican, Italian, Spanish, Asian foods always have chili in them ;--)
