comment Frying only one side of eggs on a pan
+1 for method 2, I'd have mentioned this if you hadn't already. I first saw this being done when a friend in the UK made me a fried egg sandwich while I visited him. I thought it to be an interesting but uncommon method ...

comment What to look for in a Stand Mixer?
@BaffledCook I think what it means is that the whisk is not in a static position relative to the bowl. The socket you place the whisk in is itself on a rotating element, so effectively the whisk turns while rotating (orbiting) around the bowl. Mechanically, you could also have a static whisk placed out of center of the bowl, and then have the bowl itself rotate. I think I've seen both, but the rotating bowl seems less common to me.

comment Did tomato paste come in only one size of can in the 1950s?
+1 Thanks for this, I think that's it. I'm german, and it wasn't obvious to me that "1/2 can" actually would be something meaningful in it's own right, I thought it just meant take half of the contents of a can of size x without knowing what x actually is. That also explains why some other recipes in that book appeared to be a bit "vague" ...
