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 What is the best way to store uncooked homemade beef patties?
-1 This is all very interesting, but none of those things are typically put into ordinary hamburger patties and would radically affect the flavor. Plus they're overkill for a day or so.

comment Why is my soymilk going off so fast?
I usually don't accept so fast, but that's almost certainly my problem, I'm replacing my milk every week or so. Dangit. Thanks

comment Can I make meringues with commercial egg whites?
Aha! That product IS pasteurized, though I had to dig deep into their FAQ to find out (they purchase pasteurized whites to flavor and resell)

comment Is it possible to keep puff pastry dough in the fridge for future use?
We don't do recipe requests, but your question about keeping it in the fridge is acceptable :)

comment Have strawberries changed or have I?
Is this just this year or in previous years? It's a bit early for strawberries in some areas, a few weeks can make a huge difference

comment meal planning software with collaboration and sharing
Ziplist doesn't work for this, it advertises a bunch of sharing options but ends up only sharing grocery lists, not meal plans or recipes. We were very disappointed.

comment Pots and Pans in the dishwasher
@rumtscho "unsafe" is probably a bad term, I mostly mean will it damage the cookware or shorten the life

comment How to know when to remove lemon squares from oven?
@Satanicpuppy Agreed, I'm just wondering if that's actually the correct recipe since it doesn't match the question. My best guess is a bad recipe

comment How to know when to remove lemon squares from oven?
Your recipe doesn't say until set; it says "Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched lightly in center. "

comment Why don't I have to season my cast-iron teapot?
@user5561 The outside isn't enameled, and it doesn't look shiny inside, but I can't fit my hand inside to touch and I've long since lost the paperwork. So maybe?

comment What is this powder served with fried dango?
It did not taste like peanut butter, so it's probably Kinako then

comment Garlic Overflow — Why won't my olive oil stay in its jug?
This is actually a terrible idea because of botulism. See, for example, cooking.stackexchange.com/a/9465/6317 I don't know if botulism causes bubbling or overflowing like that, but I wouldn't eat that anymore

The beef was in slices, I'm told it was flank steak, but the rest of your tips look good :)

comment Tea-flavored concentration from a teabag
Not what you're asking, but have you tried just dropping the teabag into the other hot liquid? For mint teabags, I suspect they'd brew just fine in Hot Chocolate to add a minty kick, and Starbucks makes a chai latte where they brew the chai and then add steamed milk after.

comment Do I always need to peel the avocado or I can just chop it?
In case you're not aware: cooking.stackexchange.com/a/1913/6317 explains the easiest way to get avocado chunks. Peeling then slicing is not recommended; using that technique you can slice the avocado into chunks then invert the peel to release them. Much easier.

comment Fishhouse Punch: Peach Brandy vs Schnapps
I found Paramount Peach-flavored Brandy, which suggests using it in a Fuzzy Naval on the back, which is one of the drinks I usually make with Peach schnapps
