comment Can any harm come of eating watermelon seeds?
See gardenguides.com/…. Other than apples and cherries -"Peach and apricot pits contain amygdalin in more dangerous amounts, but those seeds are too large to swallow accidentally. And you'd have to pry open the pit to get at the cyanide-bearing kernel in the first place."

comment What are toffee potatoes?
The NZ Herald article is the one I read. It sounds to me that they are similar to toffee apples except that potatoes are used?

comment Is there a problem with defrosting meat on the counter?
Yup - I've been leaving the meat on the counter overnight for years, putting back in the fridge the next morning and then cooking it that night and I'll still typing away!

comment How do you cook a steak like those found in fine steakhouses?
Just to note that all the beef and lamb in NZ is grass fed. Doesn't make it easier to get prime cuts though!
