comment Lamb ribs - how to cook them
Why don't they "work?" It will be easier for people to help you if you describe specifically what you've tried and what isn't turning out the way you want.

comment Minimum amount of fat in Roux
The minimum amount is whatever it actually takes to coat the flour. If you've got loose flour that won't incorporate, you haven't used enough. I'm not sure exactly what ratio that is, but I never even measure, personally...

comment How to reheat a Croquette without it getting soggy
I'm more concerned about what the croquette actually was, since the term can mean so many different things. Would help a lot with tagging too.

comment Can I still use butter that's been left out for 2 days?
@FoodTasted: I am fairly certain that the primary means of oxidation in butter is photo-oxidation (not oxygen, despite it sounding similar to "oxidation"). Leaving butter unwrapped might cause it to lose moisture faster, but the real risk for rancidity is leaving it exposed to light.

comment Toast bread slices in a convection microwave?
One exception I can think of is if the unit has a broiler or grill; that would be fairly effective at toasting bread.

comment Toast bread slices in a convection microwave?
@Mark: If that is the case and you are certain that the convection mode is true convection (exposed heating elements are a bad sign), then yes, it will toast. However, it will do so rather slowly and inefficiently. If you are not going to get a microwave toaster oven (for which there are several range models that also do convection) then you are honestly better off buying a $20 toaster for your toast.

comment Toast bread slices in a convection microwave?
@Mark: A convection microwave cannot ipso facto toast bread. That is why microwave/toaster ovens exist. If you want to know whether or not a specific convection microwave might be different from the others then you'll need to be more specific with your question - or better yet, contact the manufacturer. But in general, unless you specifically see a line in there advertising an ability to toast, then it can't toast.
