comment Is it safe to microwave Pyrex containers immediately after removing them from the freezer and removing the plastic lid?
It depends where you are. In Europe, Pyrex is a material, and probably able to handle temperature swings. In North America, it is a brand name rather than a material, and (aside from labware) not the same substance as in Europe. Not sure about in the rest of the world.

comment What can substitute for barley in soup
Couscous. Rice. Half-cooked chickpeas or kidney beans. Small pasta. What properties of barley do you wish to replicate, and what have you on hand?

comment Can I put raw ground beef in the crockpot when making chili?
Welcome to Cooking SE. This is no doubt true, but this is not an answer, and the Stack Exchange sites are not like traditional discussion forums. We want good questions and great answers, without too much commentary.

Also, you will want to avoid salts which contain anti-caking agents - you want a pure salt with small grains.

comment Par-Cooking Corn on the Cob in a Microwave
+1 Yes, the microwave is fast and efficient. But the caramelization that comes from the grill can't be beat!

comment Making Tomato Sauce from Tomato Paste
Have you a source for this information? Or did you derive it empirically (which is also okay)?
