comment What nutritional differences are there between honey and table sugar (sucrose)?
I don't think a website called "benefits-of-honey" is the most unbiased source. The statements above are speculation, not based on science. For a scientist's perspective, check out Dr. Robert Lustig. (Summary: white sugar, brown sugar, HFCS, honey, syrup, etc are all the same)

comment Pan-fried hamburgers, what temperature?
Your comment came up just after I finished mine :) Peanut oil is excellent. Add the oil after the pan is hot.

comment Pan-fried hamburgers, what temperature?
If you are going to use a pan that hot, make sure you use a high smoke point oil like peanut oil.

comment Which mild pepper is a good substitute for Serrano pepper?
I would throw them into the frying pan with a little bit of oil. Boiling might work, but I haven't tried it. BTW, what other people said above about removing seeds is crucial.

comment What is the secret of making a really juicy burger?
@mrwienerdog: culinary schools do teach flipping often for burgers, as well as steaks. Maybe this is a recent change.

comment How can I add more “chew” to veggie burgers with only vegetables?
I ate a riced cauliflower/egg/mozzarella cheese mix recently that had a very nice mouth-feel. I don't know if egg and cheese are options for you though.

comment How to get rid of weevils?
If they are inside of a sealed container, that usually means that eggs have hatched since the item was contained. You'll see that in rice quite often.

comment Cooking corned beef brisket for maximum slice-ability
I would say skip the plastic wrap. Cool it in the container you cooked it in, with the liquid. The act of the meat cooling without it being cut will make the meat moister than if it was eaten immediately. As the meat cools, it draws moisture in. This is why it is recommended that meat rest before serving.
