comment How do I make my Thai curry with paste taste better?
In particular, feel free to post specific questions on problems you've encountered making curry and then self-answer with the solutions you found. That way, someone searching for, say, "how do I avoid drowning out the coconut flavor in my curry?" can find your tip on using thicker coconut milk.

comment Is there a magic ingredient that keeps ice-cream soft?
Plan ahead, @floele: if you want 50% air, start with no more than a half-filled churn. If you fill it fuller, you'll run out of room before you've worked enough air in.

comment How did egg-centric dishes become “breakfast only” food in American cuisine?
Where are you drawing the line between eggs as an ingredient and eggs as a focal point? Is quiche an egg-focused dish while egg-thickened casseroles are not?

comment Is there a magic ingredient that keeps ice-cream soft?
That's what the ice cream churn does for you, @floele: it works air into the mixture as it freezes it. There are other ways to accomplish this, but it's really hard to beat a churn. This is also why it's critical that you have a cold, homogenized mixture before you start churning: otherwise, you're just freezing the water out.

Bacon grease makes a wonderful substitute for butter in savory corn bread as well.

comment Is it safe to put hot food in the fridge?
Sounds very likely that there's another defect in your fridge here and it's not properly draining condensation - this is going to be a problem regardless of how much hot food you put into it.
