comment Sources for authentic recipes
?? I always make it with coriander and lime too. Actually a good trick is to also splash in just a little bit of grapefruit juice - sounds weird but it goes well with avocado.

comment Cooking pasta in the microwave
Oh also - my favorite commercial pasta is Giuseppe Cocco, but that's hard to find here. Also it is a little expensive.

comment Cooking pasta in the microwave
Ciao @Stefano - I like "plain" blue-box Barilla, but here I refer to the "Barilla Plus", and I don't know if it is sold in Italy. I understand that in Italy you can also buy a "premium" Barilla made with old-style bronze equipment, and I have never seen that in the US.

comment What do you use to make tzatziki sauce? Garlic or onions?
Also one may want to drain the yogurt first to make the sauce a little thicker (well potentially a lot thicker).

Isn't beer a classic ingredient in sauce served with Toad In The Hole?

comment How do the batter and technique differ between crepes and pancakes?
I've learned the similar lesson that the only way to prepare a griddle for pancakes is to cook some pancakes on it. They'll turn out somewhat odd, but those that follow look fine.

comment What kind of coffee grinder is best?
Well, this might be true if you're not too picky about your coffee, but the fact is that a simple "propeller" grinder gives you a pretty broad range of gound bean particles, and you'll either not grind enough and waste coffee, or grind too much and get cups of grit. Chacun à son goût of course :-)

comment Can heavy cream be frozen?
Voting the question up because I think that this is not a good idea - I want to see if somebody offers an explanation to prove me wrong. It seems to me that the freezing/thawing process would mess up the emulsion, but I'm no chemist. Also: cream keeps for a really long time anyway. Why do you feel the need to freeze it? How much do you need to buy?

comment What vegetables hold up well for making vegetarian pot pie?
Roasted cauliflower is seriously a revelation. I have 3 kids and they love it, and their friends tell stories about it. And the best part is that (aside from the mess) it's not hard at all.
