comment Old bread becomes sticky
Do you live in a humid area? Bread only dries out if the air is drier than the bread.

comment Stovetop Flank Steak
@wnnmaw: It's pretty much the same as putting it on a grill. If you'd need to cook it at a lower temperature to keep your rub from going flambe then the same would apply in the oven.

comment Is raw honey safe to consume?
@Jefromi: "Water Activity" is the concept people are talking around (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_activity) ...It's basically a rating that describes, not how much water is in a substance, but how available the contained water is for reactions. Honey has a water activity number of 0.6. Most fungi require a water activity of at least .7, and most bacteria require .9 or above. Pure water is the base line with a water activity of 1.

comment Is 440° F too hot for an oven temperature?
I'd be worried to cook a frozen casserole at a temperature over 400...Seems likely the outside would get dry and unpleasant by the time the inside got hot. I'd be more likely to stick to 350/325.

comment Using the bone from a spiral cut ham
@JFA: Yep. Or you can stick 'em on the grill, or whatever. Typically if you're going to stew something, you sear it a little first. It's the same reason you brown pot roast before you slow cook it.

comment Does sour-cream go bad?
The good thing about dairy is that it almost never spoils in a stealthy way. If it looks and smells all right, it almost certainly is.

comment I only want to buy two knives, which two types to get?
This is the right answer. I'd recommend getting a larger (~4 inch) paring knife, because I think they have more utility, but those are the only two you really need.
