comment Cake flavour options
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.

Welcome to Seasoned Advice Chucki, can you elaborate on the exact method he used to smoke the brisket and what you mean by varying temperature? You can add this information by directing editing your question by using the edit link under your question tags.

Honestly I'd be more worried about the the hydrogen cyanide from the melted plastic than anything.

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.

comment What is the shelf life of pickled gherkins stored dry?
For the sake of clarification due to differing terms in America, Gherkins here is referring to the actual pickled cucumbers(where it is commonly referred to as the "pickle" in the US) and the pickle the OP is referring to is the pickling liquid. Correct me if im wrong.

comment What could cause a sudden loss of sour flavor?
@SAJ14SAJ sugar wont affect the amount of acid but it will reduce how sour it tastes.

comment How do you peel chickpeas?
Just wanted to point out it floats to the top because the skin has less density than the water. It has nothing to do with gravity.

comment Teabags: for how long should I let them sit in the hot water?
@slim, a lot of people drink tea near the evening for a small jolt of caffeine to keep up but not enough to cause sleeping problems. There are also people who do not like coffee and drink dark teas for the caffeine.

comment How do you convert a cake recipe to brownies?
@pklz I think if you edit your question to actually ask the question you elaborated about in your comment it would be a better question. As it stands it's too open-ended.

comment Can I pasteurize milk using a microwave?
@All Because if you are making are larger batch, in the time it takes to cool down to room temperature, it will be in the "danger zone" for more than two hours. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danger_zone_(food_safety)

comment Can I pasteurize milk using a microwave?
@All the main reason is it's not a good idea to put hot food into the refrigerator because it will bring up the temperature of the refrigerator. This will put all of the food in your refrigerator in the "danger zone". It isn't a big issue if you are only making a small amount. But if you pasteurize a large amount of milk, it will keep the temperature of your refrigerator warm enough for long enough time to spoil the other food in your refrigerator.

comment How to safely handle raw milk?
Take a look at this answer I posted in the past. Although it details how to pasteurize milk in the microwave, it should still apply in terms of temperature and length of heating time. cooking.stackexchange.com/a/24954/8305

comment How can I thicken whipping cream?
I would imagine the acidity of the apple will affect the cream adversely.
