comment Avoid ice crystals in frappuccino
Xanthan Gum is sometimes used as a gluten substitute for things like bread. If your supermarket has a health food isle with gluten free foods, you may find it there.

comment Saved-for-later then reheated potato mixture sparks and catches fire in microwave
I'm not sure that makes sense. Sparking happens when you have a conductor. Microwaves are just EM waves so you need a conductor to get elections to move and spark. And without water, microwaves will not heat anything up. You need free water molecules (as opposed to ice which won't work). In this case, if there is no high metal content, the mix has dehydrated and surface got hot enough to catch light. You can try this with bread. I used to microwave bread about 1 minute on each side and this would dehydrate the bread enough to be crunchy!

comment Making whole wheat bread in a bread machine? What kind of flour?
@richard-rast Have you tried hitting up your local bakery? Find one you like and see if they will sell you some of their bread flour or tell you where to get it.

comment Why does a pizza stone make my pizza dough bread-like?
I have never seen one of those perforated trays. HOWEVER, I have a stone and get results similar to what you describe. I have mostly given up. If you pan works for you, go for it!

comment Why are my doughnuts raw in the middle?
I thought about this but was unsure about what cooks the doughnut. Air is usually a good insulator. So I suppose they fry on the outside but actually steam on the inside?
