I am from Massachusetts but I have lived in Manhattan for five years. I work at Stack HQ as one of the members of Team CHAOS! I am also a stand-up and improv comedian, which is fun and often weird.

I love Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman! I love Bon Iver, The Mountain Goats and David Gray! I am maybe addicted to cheese sandwiches! I love good TV! This has been a list!

Thanks for swinging by, shoot me an email if you have any thoughts or questions you would like to share!

comment Why does my first batch of cookies come out nice while later batches get thin?
My mom is a cookie making machine and she uses this method - keeping the 'off duty' or fallow pan at the far end of the kitchen and chilling the cookie dough when not actively scooping on to the sheets AND she keeps the spoon in the chilling cookie dough in the fridge to keep the dough from sticking to the spoon as much.

Yeah, this is totally unappetizing notion.

comment Should cheese be frozen?
This may be the affect of bursting ice crystals, but I actually prefer the softer texture of frozen -> defrosted cheese slices on my sandwiches. I do it with sliced muenster and havarti with impunity, and almost always prefer the texture.

comment How to remove mould from a wooden spoon
Yeah just toss it. Not worth the effort unless it's like your mom's favorite spoon, and in that case, seal it and hang it on the wall as a warning to future spoon users.

comment Tweaking a Macaroni & Cheese Cake
I would also recommend a different pasta shape, I think the internal structure would be greatly improved by something longer or interconnected.

I am sensing a "Michael Scott Morning Bacon" situation here.

comment Does fresh mackerel have more omega-3 fatty acids than smoked mackerel?
Ooh, this is a very interesting question. I can't wait for an answer. My guess is that smoking breaks down the omega-3 fatty acids because it seems that heat tends break down the healthy stuff and leave us with delicious flavors. Smoke tends to deposit tasty chemicals that research has deemed 'less healthy' as well.

comment What does 6% acidity taste like?
I am pretty sure we'll need to know what the recipe was for in order to get some answerable context, although I agree that is unusual phrasing.
