comment What can I use instead of cheese?
Tofu, whether plain or pressed, is an interesting material, and is mild enough to accept many different flavorings. Corn based Polenta, easily made in a microwave, can also be used as the base for a variety of fillings.

comment Is there such a thing as too much vanilla?
LD50 for vanillin is about 1.5g/kg (rats), so you'd have a hard time poisoning yourself. The alcohol vanilla is dissolved in is more toxic. Too much of that'll make your cookie dough soggy.

comment How do I make black rice turn out better in a rice cooker?
@setek Yes. Switching "cup" sizes may be what got fr0zensphere bad results here. Or perhaps a 2:1 ratio is just too high for this particular type of black rice.

comment Homemade sport drink
Where's the potassium coming from in that recipe? Gatorade requires 14g sugar, 110mg sodium and 30mg potassium per 8 oz: instructables.com/id/Make-Your-Own-Damn-Sports-Drink/step2/… -No Calcium need apply. I just make up a 20X stock of the two salts, then mix 150 ml up w a pack of Koolaid (any flavor) and water to 3 quarts. Tot of 1/4 cup Sugar, or Stevia as desired to make it more palatable.

comment Tools to peel and crush a whole garlic bulb
This was an old pastry blade, all plastic. I just cut the blades off with my mototool. Metal blades'd fall to a hacksaw or maybe just a vicegrip. I'd been using the shake in a pot method for a few years, but find this much more reliable and convenient, especially when I need a ton for pesto etc.

comment How to make home made corn flakes?
@rold2007 Old patents are a great way of figuring out how something is done. Newer cornflake production methods are likely even less home friendly than the old one.
