Only a fraction of alcohol evaporates when you cook it.

comment USDA or Food Labeling?
Just my opinion so I dont want to enter this as an answer, but USDA often give generalized answers for worst case scenarios. If there are two types of bacon where one can last 2 week and the other only last 1 week, the USDA will say you shouldn't eat it after 1 week. The differences come from how these bacons are cured. Bacon when fully cured are suppose to last a very long time. But nowadays manufacturers only partially cure the bacon so the shelf life for these meat product will vary from company to company. So I'd go with the package date. Especially if its in a vacuum pack.

comment How to reproduce charcoal flavor in steaks and burgers from restaurants
Open flame from gas fire? Or open flame from wood fire? Often times wood fire imparts smokey flavors unique to the wood burned.

comment What kind of paste do I use to form shapes to decorate a cake?
Hello limalimolina, welcome to Seasoned Advice. Recipe request are strictly off-topic here. As well as asking to make something "healthier." We deal primarily with the culinary aspect of food and not with nutritions.

comment Can I safely thaw and refreeze sorbet?
@Catija thats true. I guess it really depends on how the OP wants the popsicles. I naturally just assumed they want a softer/like-sorbet texture for their popsicle.

comment Can I safely thaw and refreeze sorbet?
May I ask where your numbers are coming from? Is this from personal experience or do you have some sort of source? NO offense, but it just seems kind of random to me.

comment Can I safely thaw and refreeze sorbet?
What method did you use to make your original sorbet? Did you have a ice cream machine to churn the mixture or was a different method used. And do you remember the concentration of sugar you used?

comment Sour butter from freezer?
Have you had Kerrygold and Plugra butter before? Generally these European style butter will be cultured butter meaning it will have a slight tangy flavor compared to the sweet uncultured butter popular in the US.

Try somewhere between 240-245 that's the general temperature range for caramel candy.

comment How do I add spice after cooking gravy?
From the context of the question it is without doubt(at least in my mind) that the OP is referring to spice as the flavoring agents rather than spiciness(from capsaicin).

comment Using previously frozen salsa
Canning would definitely keep the texture better than freezing.

Oreo cream pies are no bake pies. It honestly just depends on how much to want to be in it.

comment Coconut rice; should it taste like coconut?
Did you stir the can of coconut milk? In cans, the coconut "cream" usually settles to the bottom of the can so you need to stir it.

Welcome to Seasoned Advice Alice! We are primarily a Q&A site which deal only with questions that have a definite answer. Questions that are opinion-based or does not have a "real" answer are considered off-topic and will most likely be close. However if you do run into a specific issue later on when making your cake, feel free to ask here.

comment Transporting chicken between refrigerators - how long is too long?
@JTL generally questions like these will be closed due to fact that seasoned advice gets questions very similar to these asked every couple of days. The normal procedure is to close the question as a duplicate of the question cindy posted above. I just wanted to comment so the OP would have some additional information.

comment Transporting chicken between refrigerators - how long is too long?
As you can see from the generalized version of your question, it is unsafe to leave food out in the danger zone for 2+ hours. However there are insulated lunch bags with ice packs that you can use to prevent your food from being in the danger zone for so long. Also I just want to say how sorry I am that you have to deal with a 2.5 hr commute.

comment Why do my cakes taste like cinnamon?
Going back to what Jefromi is saying, what do you think is the taste of cinnamon. To me its spicy, sweet, earthy, and a little bit bitter. If this doesn't sound like cinnamon to you, maybe you are tasting something else.

comment What can I add when I make a loaf with pancake batter mix?
Simple answer is to just add more flour to the pancake mix. The pancake mixes typically have baking powder in it so if you add more flour, it'll change the ratio of flour to baking powder. This of course will also change the ratio of the powdered egg and milk which "dilutes" the flavor.
