You have accurately described eating ages cheddar cheese :-) Not everyone likes that, try a young cheese and work you way from there

Mainland cheddar vintage or mild taste fine, it is a mass market cheese made in very large batches, but is still essentially quality cheddar cheese

-1 Kraft cheese like most proceed cheese is very much cheese, it is just "proceed". As a very small amount of sodium citrate is use to emulsify the cheese), the net effect is a raised sodium level not much else. It is still 100% cheese

comment Edible lollipop sticks for a complicated birthday cake
@Jolenealaska e.g. same mother for first two sisters, but different fathers, other sister is of different mother, but same father as your sister. Often called half-sister. More common than you think!

This answer does not really apply to Thai style curries, it is a very valid answer for Indian style curries

@jwenting Who said anything about the microwave? Billions of people rely on open flame cooking through little choice, and millions of children die young from the fumes

comment Browning Avocados - What's Happening - What Helps?
With my local common varieties of avocados I always store cut or processed parts in the fridge. Without lemon juice I get one day max, with I can get two. Covered, but not surface covered. How ripe where your avos?

By "healthy" I assume you mean "will the smoke kill me". Other than that there is nothing healthy about open flame cooking of any method

You have made a mistake somewhere. This is counter to my general observations. What avocado type did you use?

comment Are bay leaves dangerous to (unwittingly) eat?
This is probably fake. Doctors don't camera probe via the nose. People eat food with hard bits all the time without issue

comment How to keep celery crisp?
Wouldn't storing in water will promote the growth of bacteria like Listeria. Yes I know the fridge is cold, but that just slows, not stops growth

comment Crystallization of sugar solution, and oddly crunchy candy with fudge-like texture after eating
Note: Water boils at 100°C, sugar "melts" (actually chemical breakdown) above 100°C. So by the time your sugar has melted, a significant amount of the water will have boiled away. Water is just there to aid in getting an even melt, and isn't actually required
