I've recently completed my MSc Computer Science from a UK institution, and have moved back to the US to begin work. I write in my spare time, enjoy cooking, and apparently am addicted to signing up for SE sites :).

comment Does wrapping banana stems actually prolong their life?
Nobody's disputing that ethylene ripens bananas. The claim is that the tip of the stem is a significant enough source of ethylene that wrapping it tightly will prevent a banana from ripening.

Great, can you link to some of those studies? I keep finding the claim that it's been studied but I can't find proof.

comment Will MSG improve taste of a food for someone who dislikes the food itself or will it make it worse?
I've never heard any source for MSG doing anything besides bringing more umami to the party, though I'd be interested to find I'm wrong.

comment Which foods are certain to never cause food poisoning?
Consider seeing a professional who deals with eating disorders if you're finding an aversion to certain foods for health reasons or an obsession with only eating the very healthiest food is interfering with your daily life.

comment How to make Cheeze Burst Pizza same as Domino's?
So basically the question is how to reproduce the cheese-burst crust style at home, where you can top it with a sauce you like? There's nothing about the crust itself you can't eat, right?
