comment Alternatives to massaging fresh kale?
I'm kinda with Kate on this, I think it's perfect as-is. Maybe next time I'll try this out, but I still insist that the fastest way to do something is to not do it at all.

comment How do you remove the pit from a mango?
I've got to try this, it almost seems too easy to be true.

comment How do you remove the pit from a mango?
I've got one of those too, but it does feel like it leaves a large amount of flesh behind. At least it means I get to gnaw on the pit while other stuff is cooking.

comment What's the best approach to get runny-yolk sunny side up fried eggs?
Is over-easy out of the question? I just flip them after most of the white has cooked, and then immediately take them off the pan. You lose the perfect sunny side up presentation, but they taste the same and the yolk remains liquid.

comment Why do chefs traditionally wear a high white hat?
Are the chefs cooking in the middle of a battle, or do the knights just run through the kitchen, swords swinging? If the latter, wouldn't a suit of armor be more appropriate? That would give a new meaning to iron chef.

comment How to thicken Chili without compromising flavor
Yeah, that is an important distinction. The corn meal is good to plan for and add early, but tortilla chips can adjust the consistency near the end.

comment What can I substitute for Kaffir Lime Leaves?
I've gotten jarred kafir leaves, and though they do seem to have a lot of flavor, I'm not sure how much of it's coming from the leaves or the liquid they're in. They do seem to go bad pretty quickly once opened, even when refrigerated.
