comment How can I be sure I'm buying the right KitchenAid beaters?
Joe, if you know for sure that these three categories are all there are, and that anything labelled tilt head will fit any KA mixer with a tilting head, then I think you have an answer for me.

I know it's the Architect - I bought it. The question is, what do tilt head, narrow bowl lift etc mean? And which one is the Architect?

comment Can I use sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated milk for pumpkin pie?
it is important to switch recipes, not just replace evaporated with sweetened condensed - it's thicker and sweeter and will make a different pie (see cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/3072/… ). The rest of the recipe has to be changed to deal with that.

comment What would be a good substitution for powdered milk in cereal cookies?
Why don't you want to use milk powder? Do you have a dairy allergy, is milk powder hard to get where you live, do you not enjoy the taste of it, ...? Suggesting substitutions is impossible without knowing the reason for the substitute

I think until you explain your reasoning for this time period you are unlikely to get good answers.

this would be a better answer if there was even a two or three word summary of each video rather than just links.

comment Storing hard crusted bread
This is what I do with my high-hydration long rise loaves. If for some reason one lasts longer than a few days it will get stale this way. Solve that by baking slightly smaller loaves.

comment What food dissolves in acid but not in water?
but that's not true, at least not of non-food items. Metals will dissolve in strong acid but not in water. The experiments with Coke and teeth are also examples of dissolving in acidic solution but not in pure water.

while this is true, adding concentrated acid to water holding something that won't dissolve in water could produce mediumly-concentrated acid that will dissolve the substance.
