Problem: every time I buy a quart of milk, it spoils before I can use more than a few tablespoons. Goal: be able to drink coffee at home on the weekends without wasting a gallon of milk a month. Solution: ????? [more inside]

Like this questioner here
, I too am a grown-ass woman who fails at hydration. However, I do find that I am more willing to guzzle down creamy drinks, such as milk or hot chocolate. Are those enough to hydrate me, will I die from too much milk, and what other drinks will help fulfil both the cream craving and the hydration? [more inside]

I would like to get some kind of coffee-related drink, but I'm not sure what I'd like. I like Kahlua & milk, and chocolate things, but when I've tried black coffee I haven't liked it. I will be heading to a Starbucks in the morning so please give me an idea of what I could order there. [more inside]

In an effort to healthify, I've replaced milk in my coffee with almond milk (unsweetened vanilla). It is awesome and yummy. I've taken to using my aerolatte to whip it into a tasty froth before adding my coffee. Add a little cinnamon on top and magic happens. So this worked great until my last purchase of almond milk (pure almond from Silk). It Will Not Froth! MY QUESTIONS:
1. Why won't it froth?
2. Could the absence of Carrageenan be the cause?
3. Should I worry about the presence of Carrageenan in my nut milk?

I have a mypressi, which is a portable C02 powered espresso machine. It seems to work pretty good, but the included milk frother does not produce a true milk froth which you would expect to get when you order a cappuccino. I found the linked video on youtube and became intriqued with the steamer/water heater setup he was using. Does anyone know who manufactures that steamer? I have found a stove top model online while searching, but not the electric one used in the video. Any help would be awesome. Thanks guys and gals!

I like my coffee--enough that I just drink one good cup a day. (I make it with an Aeropress.) Since it's just one cup, I don't feel shy about adding half & half. Ultra-pasteurized h&h has a sell-by date that can be a month out or more. I thought I'd be smart and make it easier to store and pour by putting it in a glass container. It's this GlassLock
After four or five days, the h&h starts to separate. What should last for weeks more goes bad almost right away. This has happened with several brands of h&h, and I've certainly washed the container well. Does anyone have a guess on why this is happening? Any suggestions on a container (you've tried yourself) that does work well for storing half & half?

My friend wants to buy a steam milk frother as a gift for his mother. The tricky part? She drinks only instant coffee, so doesn't require an espresso machine, JUST the milk frother. Does such an appliance exist, and if so, can it be purchased for under £80? [more inside]
