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.

@Catija oops, thank you for catching that. Yes, I meant "does not cause problems". Edited.

@Catija I don't know if it's normal, because I don't know what happened. If it's the steel itself changing colour from the high heat, yes, it can happen when you overheat steel. If it's a residue on the pan, it should be removed, unless it's an oil polymer and the OP insists on seasoning a SS wok, in which case she should try to season it properly. But I see no point in seasoning stainless steel anyway, so I'd remove any residue.

comment Everyday drink that won't destroy my teeth/shoot up my sugar
Hello! It seems a tough situation indeed, but I'm afraid you are in the wrong place to ask about it. First, we are not qualified to give advice on the healthiness of food or drinks, we are neither medical specialists nor nutritionists. Second, questions which are basically "what should I eat/drink" are not a good fit for the site, as they are too broad to have one good answer. I'm sorry, and I hope you'll find a community which can answer such questions. I'm sorry I have to close it, I know it's a hard situation to be in (my own father cannot drink water either). Good luck finding a solution.

comment What do eggs do in enriching and glazing
Hi Ollie, I'm afraid I don't understand your question at all. 1) Eggs do coagulate in glazing, and 2) what do you mean by "enriching"? It is a vague term used in many different contexts. I am sure we can give you an answer on most questions about egg chemistry, but as it is, we just can't know what the question is. You can use the small grey "edit" link below your post to improve your question.

comment How do I choose frozen fish so that it doesn't release so much water?
A fish, like any living organism, is mostly water (well, cell plasma) on the inside. Sure, if you prepare it fresh and never freeze it, less of it will flow into the pan. This doesn't mean that anybody soaked the filets in the supermarket.

comment India: Blender for making nut butters,tahini etc
Hello! I'm afraid that recommendations for a product to buy are off topic here. We have a few old questions on how to make nut butters with a blender (hint: very hard even with the most powerful ones), you can search for them.

comment Cooking rhubarb with soda
I have no idea. Wikipedia lists an Australian book from 1974 as the source of their claim, I doubt that we can find a copy and look at the reference in detail. And this sentence is too little for further research. Especially, they don't say which oxalates are the old (insoluble) ones and which ones are created when cooking with soda.
