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 :).

@derobert Could the pizza stone he left in the oven have been to blame?

comment Why aren't my potatoes cooked?
hmm, that's a good point. He brought it to 150 internal temp (was a beef roast), maybe our oven is running low.

He put it on the bed of potatoes and onions and poured some wine and vinegar over top, but it wasn't like, braised per se. In the oven, not a crockpot

@derobert It wasn't frozen. My husband did the cooking, he's relayed all this info to me, but I verified yet again and he said it's the right time and temp

So to clarify, you're looking for a yeasty, bread-like smell when it's mature?

Awesome, it's now exactly what I was looking for. Thanks :)

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?

comment How to stop sushi nori tasting too strong?
Are you sure the nori is less flavorful as opposed to your other fillings being too bland, making it stand out too much? Try tearing off a bit of the nori you like and tasting it alone, then comparing with your brand.

comment How to keep cream cheese for a long time?
I hope you don't mind, but I made some formatting changes to make it easier to read. I personally love detailed step-by-step instructions like this, since it reduces the chance of getting it wrong, but it's hard to find what step you're on without numbers.
