comment How can I make Chinese chicken fingers like in the northeast USA?
Look for a "sweet and sour chicken" recipe. That's what that's called (coupled with the orange-y red sauce) everywhere I've ever had it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_and_sour_chicken

comment How do I cook a frozen hamburger in the microwave?
You can thaw them using your microwave's defrost setting, but I wouldn't personally cook them in one. Wouldn't be very tasty...

comment What's a good nondairy substitute for parmesan/grana padano as a salad-topper?
It's likely a casein allergy, considering the gluten involvement too.

comment What are the advantages of using agave sweetener instead of sugar?
92% is "as high as". Wiki links to several sources ranging between 56% and 92%, so it probably varies from brand to brand. If you're counting calories, it'd probably be worth reducing the amount of agave you use beyond their recommended 3:4 ratio and see how it affects taste.

comment How do you cook grass-fed beef so it is not tough?
Yeah, I've never had to do anything special to the grass-fed organic beef Wegmans (high-end grocery chain) carries. Just as tender, if not more, than their regular steaks.

comment What can be substituted for vinegar in sushi rice?
@ThinkingCook Yeah, the linked source is sketchy (and selling products). Before replying I Googled and found this more reputable link at WebMD which at least verified the vinegar bit: webmd.com/allergies/guide/mold-allergy

Weird, I'd never considered vinegar being a source of mold allergens. We really do learn something every day!

comment Can I make Crème Brûlée using a flambé?
I'd guess there was already a crust under the liquor when they brought it out.

comment Can I make Crème Brûlée using a flambé?
I'd be surprised if it gave you a decent crust, but it'd be very impressive to do a little flambéing on top of an extant crust.
