comment What can I use as a manual hard cheese slicer?
I think for that width you might be better off getting a wire based slicer.

comment How long does unwhipped whipped topping last in the fridge
Do you mean similar to Cool Whip? If so, it's already whipped. You just defrost it and eat. I would think that once defrosted it would last for a week or two in the refrigerator.

comment Using Canned San Marzano Tomatoes Vs. Regular Canned Tomatoes
My rule of thumb is this - the more a sauce relies on the taste of the tomatoes themselves the more likely I'll use the San Marzanos. What exactly do I mean? If the sauce only has few ingredients (say, tomatoes, garlic, butter, salt, pepper, parmesan) then I'll use the San Marzanos. If it's going to be a meat sauce with a lot of herbs, spices, etc added in then I'll use the cheaper tomatoes as the taste of the tomatoes is going to be hidden by the other ingredients anyways.

comment Braised short ribs differ in texture when on stove top vs in oven
I think you mean "close to an hour in the oven" rather than "in the stove" - yes?

comment Why does my asparagus turn out too chewy?
What exactly do you mean by "chewy/soggy?" To me, "chewy" puts me in mind of them being undercooked (hard, woody, etc) and "soggy" suggests overcooked (mushy, overly soft, etc).
