“Anyone can cook!” declared Chef Auguste Gusteau in the classic animated film Ratatouille. We’ll go a step further: with a little cooking know-how and access to a kitchen anyone can do science. Each spring the students of the Science & Food undergraduate course prove us right as they research and experiment their way toward apple pie enlightenment.
But you don’t have to be a student in our course to be a savvy kitchen scientist. One of our younger readers, Vincent, recently won his local seventh grade science fair by carefully crafting and conducting his own kitchen experiment. By baking cookies with different temperatures of light (reduced fat) butter, Vincent determined that frozen butter creates a chewier cookie than melted butter. His scientifically proven chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe appears at the end of the article.
Vincent’s project is a great example of a successful kitchen experiment. For those of you who are avid kitchen experimenters or are thinking of dipping a toe into the world of kitchen science, we’ve summarized the key features of Vincent’s project that will help make any (kitchen) science experiment a success.

If you have trouble ordering food over the phone and the restaurant doesn’t have an online ordering function then BRING ME THAT is the site for you.
Just look up local food places that deliver, put in your order on bringmethat and they will confirm when the order is placed via email. You don’t have to talk to a single human except for the person who delivers your food.
They will order your food for you and have it delivered straight to where you live.
When I don’t have the energy to actually order over the phone I use bring me that and they are so nice
New Info (7/28/11):
I was told to remove complaints about life because I rarely do that, but I enjoy having the option to cry on your dashboards. The rest is basically the same. Except for copious amounts of Doctor Who. And possibly Sherlock.
Old Info (10/28/10):
Muse, Star Wars, complaints about life. Maybe some Palahniuk (You should read RANT). Probably some Pokemon stuff. Also, TF2 things and L4d! You can add me on steam if you find me.
I made a papercraft Stormtrooper helmet and it's the sexiest thing I own, so I flaunt it occasionally. May occasionally appear on Stickam/Tinychat things so you can adore my face.
Ask me things because I'm good about responding? I dunno.
Don't even know why I have this, but follow me!
May talk about Palahniuk, James Bond, Star Wars, Muse, and complain a lot.
Muse runs through my veins, it's kind of crazy.
