OK to eat? Deep fry edition.

I want to deep fry some stuff this weekend, and have a large unopened bottle of sunflower oil from a major UK supermarket. It expired May 2017 though. OK to use? It's been kept in a dark cupboard.

What are the best canned sardines?

I've tried Google, but the results seem to be corporate manufactured spam. My favorite is King Oscar brisling (sprats), but I am wondering what people around the word prefer. Opinions about smoked herring are also welcome.

iced tea/refreshing low or zero calorie summer drinks

I drink multiple cups of hot decaffeinated/herbal tea a day but this is much less enjoyable in the summer, when my apartment gets unlivably, beastly hot. I'm looking for suggestions/recipes for what to replace this habit with - something with fairly strong flavors and low or zero calories. [more inside]

Oreos without the cream filling, please

I like the taste of the chocolate biscuits that are the outer layers of Oreos. I do not like the filling - it is far too sweet for me, and I have to scrape it off. How do I get my hands on cookies (biscuits) that are basically Oreos without the filling? [more inside]

How to mail GF baked goods for peak freshness

I would really like to mail some gluten-free cookies to my long-distance faraway sweetheart. Is this even really possible to do in a way that keeps them somewhat fresh? I would probably make oatmeal cookies from a Minimalist Baker recipe that I add dried fruit and pumpkin seeds to. What's the best plan for packaging, mailing, etc? What has worked for you? Thanks Metafilter!

The other type of scone

When I was a kid in California ('80s/'90s), some caf├ęs had a type of "scone" that was dome-shaped and relatively smooth, with a tender crumb and almost a skin (and usually berries or chunks of fruit mixed in). This is in contrast to the probably more authentically British style that is more rough and nubbly and dry. Same genus, different species. Both have a similar baking powder tang.
Anyone know what I'm talking about? And if so, do you have a recipe for the kind I'm remembering?

Give me not-too-complicated recipes for Asian noodle soup dishes

Looking for recipes for dishes with the same sort of format as pho and ramen (bowl, liquid, noodles, chopsticks, Chinese spoon). Ideally not too complicated (I think making my own stock might be too complicated) and without too many hard-to-get ingredients (I have access to an Asian supermarket but live in a small UK city so not sure how good it is). Thank you!

Bring them breakfast muffin recipes (aka when your baby is a lark)

Now that kiddo had been waking up at 4 a.m. for the past week (hi jetlag), occured to me that I might as well use the time to make lemonade out of a lemony situation and bake! and be less of a sourpuss myself. So, hit me up with your favorite breakfast muffin/cookie/crumpet/othersuchthing recipes. [more inside]

What kind of 9x13 oven pan/dish should I get? (EU)

I need a 9x13 size oven pan or dish, but I'd like to buy just one for both dessert baking and casserole style dishes that call for that size. Is that workable? Right now I'm looking at two very different things: this baking tin (pro: inexpensive! it has a lid! con: non-stick finish, will eventually need to be replaced; too thin for casserole type dishes?) and this enameled cast iron baking dish (pro: should be a buy-once item -- done and dusted. cons: can't tell what the depth is -- maybe too high and therefore a problem (idk!) for baked goods? is cast iron not great for things like cakes?)

Cooking without a stove

Due to reasons my stove is unusable. I have been living on delivery food for more than a couple of months and it shows both in my weight and my wallet. I need to start cooking more but I'm not sure how to do it. I have a rice cooker and a toaster oven and I'm open to buying something else (a pressure cooker?) Any suggestions?
