comment Why do scrambled/fried eggs stick less when cooked with butter instead of oil?
I thought one should never heat a dry pan?

comment Is “swimming in broth” a common cooking technique for pasta and broccoli rabe?
Thank you so far for these answers. It would be amazing if someone could specifically tie this style of preparation (with broth/stock) to a regional (NY state or New England) style of Italian/American cuisine. Any takers?

comment Is “swimming in broth” a common cooking technique for pasta and broccoli rabe?
Yeah, they were very "Italian American" style restaurants. My worst complaint was the overcooked rabe and pasta. One time I even had this dish where the liquid in the bottom tasted bitter, so it was obviously poorly drained rabe water!

Indeed, if I were to make the dish myself (without a recipe), the ingredients would be lightly coated in olive oil, but no liquid for sure.

comment Why does some cake make your tongue thick, and how to prevent it?
To me it also sounds like the description provided by AdeleC, for what it's worth. Maybe we should focus on the two examples given, digestive cookies and baby/toddler cookies?

comment Teabags vs. instant coffee
As a side note, there are better alternatives to a tea ball - a brewing basket such as this one by Finum (goo.gl/diUjn) allows for better contact between the tea leaves and the water, and allows the leaves room to expand/unfurl as they steep.

comment Teabags vs. instant coffee
Great answer! I think your wording may make it sounds like all CTC teas are of lower quality - and since you work for a tea company (which sounds like an amazing job, which one if you don't mind sharing?) you of course know that there are fine CTC (loose leaf) teas out there, e.g. some teas of Assam.
