At what point do you drink your beer room temperature?

The Term room temp comes from medieval Europe castles who also happen to be suffering from a mini ice age at the time so it started out at 55 to 60 and cellar temp were equivalent to very cold frig to freezing as some castles had ice rooms where they stored winter ice into summer later it moved to merchants that did that and even moved to America until early refrigeration came but it was ammonia based and dangerous so people still had ice box refrigerators for a long time

Juicy Lucy Burger (a.k.a. Jucy Lucy)

this works best with American cheese or equally meltable cheese but less meltable chesses should spend some time in the oven after cooking both side on a pan about 300 so not to overcook the burger , have a Breville oven as a second oven and love it for doing this. I also use about a 12% fat as I buy hamburger twice ground from a full lightly trimmed boneless NY strip along with a pound of rib eye

microwaves do have a dark side to them as my friend found when she put one to close to her computer (2 feet) and found when using it scrambled her screen so she had to move it 7 feet away before the interference stopped

my first job growing up on long island when I was 7-8 at the donut shop on my block were I folded boxes in exchange for all the fresh donuts I could eat however the quality of those donuts blows away Entemanns and even dunking donuts as they made donuts from 3 am for the crowd that came in early as 6am to hop the train into the city after the donut rush a second crew came in and made all the fillings in house with only fresh ingredients which is why they sold over 1000 boxes a day as they were right across from the train station which may explain why I still like good donuts

Turkey as my moms boyfriend got the largest bird he could find so over come home with one close to 30 pounds so we had leftovers for 4-5 weeks.

also Spaghetti as I grew up on long island NY a very italian area so my school served Spaghetti twice a week with the most horrable metalic tasting sauce so to this day over 40 years later I wil not touch Spaghetti thought I love all other pasta except for angel hair which is ok but not a favorite

Quick Cilantro Tasting Question - what percentage taste soap?

My taste buds are well refined and I quite the foodie and is will to try anything at least once
but the first time and the most resent time I had cilantro it tastes Like dish soap has been copiously poured on it.
But it kind of rude to call it a defect as everyone has foods that they dislike at various levels from Hate to minor dislike and can be from taste to texture as I love coconut in Pinna coladas and but hate it shredded due to texture but love coconut shrimp as deep frying changes the texture.
Some food genes are possible just like the extreme which are food allergies as I got two generically odd traits which is I we are allergic to rice but no other grain and my HDL/LDL is totally out of whack in my family as the HDL(good cholesterol) is very high and the LDL is very low even though I go through 2 pounds of butter a month and lot of meat and potatoes and chesses as well
