We get a lot of questions from readers asking for advice about what to serve at a party, how to use an unusual ingredient, or how to master a new cooking technique. And then there are the questions that make us stop and say, "Hmm...that is a really good question." Should you tell your host she is making a cooking mistake? What are some meals you can cook one-handed? Are there any non-alcoholic alternatives to bourbon? And what do you do if your friend asks you to pay cash for Thanksgiving dinner? These are just a few of the most interesting and surprising questions our readers asked — and answered — this year.
