comment Spaghetti sauce consistency / coating noodles
Oil content might be a factor, and the thickness, as Jennifer S suggests, in that case.

comment Spaghetti sauce consistency / coating noodles
The quality of pasta has a major bearing on how much sauce sticks. Good pasta is rough, because its surface is porous, and so it absorbs sauce much better. Moral of the story: try your sauce with decent pasta!

comment When and why would one infuse flavor into sugar for baking?
Say you want to use a little rosemary, so you chop up a few leaves, then you stir it through the batter, then you divide it into cases. You now have, for example, 4 cakes with a bit of rosemary in and 8 with nothing. Infusing the sugar ensures even distribution of flavour.

comment What does it mean to broil 4 inches from the heat for x minutes?
In the UK, the broiler is called the grill, therefore broiling = grilling in the UK - nothing to do with BBQ.
