comment How do I cook chips (french fries) in the oven?
@JonathanLeaders until they are brown and crispy - a few minutes, maybe as much as 10. It depends on how many there are (ie whether the sheet is crowded) and what else has been going on (have I been opening the oven a lot etc.) I typically turn them up while meat rests, sauces get finished, quick-cooking vegetables like kale get cooked, the table gets set etc, so I'm not always paying strict attention to time passing, I just look at them to see if they're ready or not and if not I give them another minute or so.

comment Coins in bread?
when I was a child my (Irish/English) parents always insisted there be three coins inside each Xmas pudding. We had some silver coins my mother saved for this use alone. It was good luck to get a piece with the coin in it.

comment Portable ways to daily grind & powder/ paste 8-9 overnight soaked & peeled Almonds while traveling?
please explain why the other question doesn't work for you. Is it because your almonds are soaked, because you're traveling, or for some other reason?

comment What are the major menu differences between Canadian and American Thanksgiving?
Canadians are less likely to feature the green beans with fried onions thing, and to put marshmallows on their sweet potatoes. Other than that, it's standard "fall harvest" fare and plenty of it!

comment Does “American” Food exist around the world?
I went to an "American Food" restaurant in Berlin (chosen by our hosts) and their interpretations of fried chicken, burgers etc were certainly interesting. Beer was very good :-)

what are you putting in it? Are you drinking it black, or comparing your milk-and-sugar to their cream-and-sugar?

comment What are the benefits and drawbacks of washing dishes in hot water?
Soap is part of it. Hot water without soap doesn't do as good a job as warm water with soap. This does not prove that cold water is best.

comment Can Kale be hot like horseradish?
Mustard greens look a lot like kale. They are hot like horseradish. In a salad it's good - not so sure about a smoothie though!
