comment When boiling water without any other ingredients in it, why start from cold?
Cold water boiling faster is one of those persistent myths that proves that many people are unable to think critically. Feel free to laugh at people who haven't thought it through. :-p

comment How do you cook a steak like those found in fine steakhouses?
Man, am I glad to live near a Wegmans. No "select" beef sold at all, and lots of "prime" grade - that they dry-age in-store!

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 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!
