Food is interesting. I usually think about it at around why + 7.

For every natural phenomenon there are different levels of explanation. I like to call these "why" values. For the first value of why, the question "Why is the sky blue?" can be answered with some simple hand-waving about light from the sun passing through our planet's atmosphere. For a value of why + 2 (also known to parents as, "But whyyyyy?") you have to start talking about the fact that light comes in different colors.

Also, I like the idea of cake more than cake itself.

comment What baked good involves crushed digestives, peanut butter, and marbled chocolate?
Hi Terry, direct recipe requests are off topic here. But it is perfectly OK to ask for the name of a dish or more information which will help find recipes by yourself. I changed your last sentence so it won't invite people to start listing recipes, but to focus on the identification part instead.

comment Measure of Overcooked Beef
Hello! I'm afraid your questions don't make much sense to a cook. "How long to boil a beef" can only be answered by "until it's ready". It seems that you don't know the basics of meat cooking. My suggestion is that you read through following questions and their answers: cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/11739, cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/36854, cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/43275. If it is still unclear after you have learned the information given in them, you can ask a new question about what you are missing.

comment Make caramel using coconut sugar?
@tfd the SE model depends on people being very literal in their meaning. It assumes that the question expresses what they need. Of course, people don't (and sometimes can't) express them so clearly, and the problem is noticed when the first comments and answers come. When this happens, the author can edit the original question or ask a new one which is more in line with their information need. But as long as a question asks X, we should try to come up with solutions to X and not to Y just in case the author wanted Y but did not ask about it.

comment Thawed frozen blueberries inside cake roll?
OK, sorry, should have noticed that you are a very new user and don't know all the intricacies of the system yet. I don't generally get a notification when a question is edited. Normally, when a closed question is edited such that it is reopenable, the users can cast a reopen vote. As you don't have the reputation for that, you can create a custom flag instead, which will notify the moderators. So it took a while until I noticed that you changed it :( I hope your dinner turns out well though.

comment How can I tell what real ale & craft beer is good chilled?
As you noted yourself, whether a beer tastes well chilled depends on personal taste and is totally subjective. There is no way to predict your own taste but to try stuff out.

I am putting this on hold as "unclear what you are asking" because it is really unclear. I am at the computer today, so can reopen it for you in time for your 4th of July cooking if you clear it up.

I'm giving you an upvote, but note the Internet says that Masawu is just another name for Jujube, which has been suggested a few times. thesovereignstate.org/indigenous-fruits-of-zimbabwe-3
