Can you cook instant noodles with hot water?

Can you cook instant ramen with hot water? Not the instant cup ones, but the instant pack ones, the one that you usually have to cook. What I mean by "with hot water" is cooking that pack noodles (where you usually have to cook) like a cup instant noodles.

Cook a Burger with Your Tailpipe

Why waste all that heat out your tailpipe when you can cook a burger with it? We've seen an instructable on how to [https://www.instructables.com/id/Cooking...-with-your-car/ cook with your car], but this concept shows a simple device for grilling on the go.It looks like it's still just an idea, but where else can we harness energy that would otherwise just heat up the air? link

Tasteless, textureless chocolate chip cookies, EVERY first batch I make? Answered

For the last 3 times I have tried making chocolate chip cookies, the first round that I slide in the oven has come out completely tasteless and textureless. No light buttery taste, no vanilla taste, not even a vaguely burnt taste. And they aren't crispy or chewy either. They're definitely cooked all the way through, and I follow the recipes exactly. The 2nd batch normally turns out slightly better, but I couldn't tell you why. I am a rather bad cook, but that doesn't explain why all the cookies suck. :P To quote one of my friends, "This will haunt me for the rest of my life. I don't know how to even describe this cookie, as there is nothing to describe about it." My mother once made a vague comment about the temperature of the oven, but I'm still not sure how to fix it. It's probably not the recipe; I've used several different ones that are all fairly standard and similar.

Arghh! Eggs!

Today was a great day in school! I came home craving hard boiled eggs, so I take 4 eggs from a container that I thought was fairly old (5 days or so). Turns out they were fresh. Now my eggs are impossible to completely peel, albeit being good inside.Is there a good way to remove all of the shell? Is there anything I can do with these eggs (that is, a recipe)?I really to see 3 good eggs go to waste. Does anyone know what to do?Thanks,Bran.

Is lighter flame/smoke/fume toxic?

I was going to make an instructable on mini roasting when something hit me. When you use the lighter to light maybe a marshmellow, is the fire or smoke or fumes from the fire toxic? I mean the gas/alcohol gets neutrilized when it burns up and turns into flame but If i cook with it, it may be a different question. If someone asks me to think about smokes, the I should say to you that smokes are already toxic and anyone smoking shouldn't care. ( I don't smoke, I want to live) If possible you can answer this question and have credit in my next instructable.

Just curious... Does Instructables have a 'best of' cookbook??

We seem to have a giant collection of some very 'tasty' recipes on here. Wouldn't it be great to have them in a cookbook-like form, categorized. Even a quick cookbook vs traditional cook-time book. The instructables format even gives the novice cook an almost foolproof set of instructions which would make it soooo easy for someone to impress their guests.

"techniques" section in cooking?

Hey! I just posted an instructable on red foods, and I had a little trouble figuring out how to categorize it. I think that the cooking section could use a techniques category. If someone wanted to post an instructable about how to descale a fish or cut an onion, right now they'd have to decide if that was a main course, salad or sandwich. General cooking techniques are what I get the most requests for when I teach cooking. I think that more technique-based instructables would be a huge asset to the community! Cheers, Renee

I want to cook artichokes (whole, fresh) on a salt block. Any tips for this? Should I precook the arti some?

A full sized artichoke takes a long time to steam or boil. I want to cook some on a Salt Block but don't know if I should pre-cook them a bit so they don't have to stay on the salt block all day.  I am sure I can cook them on the salt block but also wonder if they will continue to be tough if not par cooked. I'll report back with photos when I am done and figure it out.
