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 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.

comment What is inside the Prawn Cocktail crisps flavour?
I answered the question asked: "what's in the crisps". I don't have an answer as to "how can I make this at home", sorry.

comment Why is fish not considered as meat?
Also true! But my point was the difference between vegetarian and vegan

comment Why is fish not considered as meat?
The Good Friday thing isn't "eat vegetarian" but "don't eat beef or pork because those were historically decadent, expensive foods and therefore inappropriate for a somber mourning occasion". It has nothing to do with Noah and the flood or with the symbol of Jesus as a fish from my understanding.

comment Why is fish not considered as meat?
Vegetarians can eat wine, cheese, et cetera; they don't eat flesh of animals but do often eat animal by-products. You're thinking of Vegans, who don't eat anything that comes from animals at all.

comment Why does my rice smell?
@SustenanceCouture Did you heat the water? I had water once where my shower smelled like eggs but the cold tap didn't. I'm not sure if it was the water heater or just that it smelled more when it was warm.

comment Can I freeze Tzatziki sauce?
We usually have minced cucumbers still in chunks in the sauce. I can look for a recipe that calls for pureeing though

comment Recommendations: Food with Minimal Stovetop Time, No Oven Available
There are "instant" rice products on the market that cook in comparable times to pasta. I've seen 10-15 minute varieties, 5 minute varieties, and 3 minute (via microwave) varieties.

comment Vegetable stock for a vegan gravy
I've heard rumors of vegan dashi using mushrooms to replace the fish elements that might be a good base as well: it'd be a combo of your suggestions to use mushroom stock and your suggestion to use seaweed.

comment How to remove dirt from inside green/spring onions?
I would shop at a different market, one that sells produce that's less filthy to begin with. How on earth does that much dirt get inside the stalks of the plant in the first place? A little, sure, but...
