comment What does “crowding mushrooms” mean?
Bingo. Applies to much more than mushrooms - pan searing meats, veggies, etc.

comment What alternatives are there to tomato based pizza sauces?
@Carmi Maybe it's the acidic nature of it.

comment Should I flip a roasting chicken in lieu of having a rotisserie?
I wonder if you were getting some radiant heat from the stone.

comment Why powdered eggs?
Same issues probably apply - bombed out roads, power losses preventing refrigeration, transport more in a single truck. I imagine a lot of the powdered eggs in Britain came from the US via ship, which adds extra problems for fresh ones. Plus, imagine if you dropped your week's ration of real eggs on the way home.

There's no scientific evidence for the claims made in this post.

comment Should I flip a roasting chicken in lieu of having a rotisserie?
It sounds a bit like the recipes calling for flipping to crisp the skin are just replacing basting with sitting it down in the juices. Either one should work. I find basting a lot easier.

I don't think it'd make a significant difference, but couldn't hurt to try.

comment a manual meat slicer
@Chad "Doable" and "convenient for a busy parent" are very different things. Anything that reduces time needed and frustration is helpful.

comment a manual meat slicer
It can be quite hard to cut lunchmeat-thinness slices of meat manually, particularly if the meat is tender.

comment Potato in the microwave
Surely this is a case of poor supervision of cooking food more than a safety issue with microwaves themselves? I could leave something on the stove and set it on fire, but that doesn't make cooking on stoves unsafe...

comment Why do we peel carrots?
@sarge_smith Peeling gets the vast majority of the dirt off, and removes the little nooks and crannies it gets stuck in. A quick rinse is all that's required where a serious scrubbing would've been needed previously.

comment Using cast iron on a glass range
Cast iron is not pure iron, it's an alloy, with other metals added to increase hardness. It can definitely scratch a glass cooktop if you're not careful with it.

comment What ingredients (available in specific regions) can I substitute for parsley?
Parsley is very easy to grow. Could you buy some seeds and put them in a windowsill pot?
