comment Close the lid of unsealed jar with pop-up lid
Technically it won't be safe after more than a few hours at room temperature. No, you can't seal it again.

comment Seasoning No-Stick Frying Pan
This mentions what I was going to say: don't put non-stick cookware in the dishwasher if you want it to remain non-stick. Don't even use soap, just wash it with hot water.

I guess you could keep the meat in the cooking liquor, though it might take longer to cool down in that case.

comment What is the best way to cook chicken for enchiladas?
'always cook chicken to an internal temperature of at least 165F (74C). In my opinion thighs are better much longer cooked than that' Longer, but not necessarily hotter.

comment Glass Top Range Not Turning On
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because while it is about ovens, it is specifically about an electrical problem with an oven rather than about usage.

comment Is cooking with fruit liqueur comparable to cooking with fruit juice?
Actually I'm afraid you're incorrect. The idea that alcohol completely evaporates during anything but relatively long cooking is a myth, as shown by this study: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1556354, summarised here: whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/AlcoholCooking.htm. Even a 2.5 hour braise will leave around 5% of the alcohol behind; flambeeing will leave 75%.
