Rice Cooker & Brown Rice

I kept having my rice cooker spewing out liquid when cooking brown rice.

I started putting the steamer basket in empty and it "breaks up the bubbles" as the rice cooks -- no more spewing!

Extend splt pea soup with spinach and butternut squash

In addition to sauteed carrots, onions and garlic I added 4 cups of fresh spinach and 1 cup of cooked butternut squash to the 8 cups of water and 1 pound of dried split peas when I made soup. Once cooked, the immersion blender mixed everything into the familiar look of split pea soup. Doing this adds flavor, nutrients and some volume lowering the per serving calorie count. . I also added a splash of balsamic vinegar to finish the soup. Quite Yum

making a SERRANO PEPPER taste good

take this simple pepper and prepare it for many of your favorite dishes by either putting a tsp of low fat butter or some oil of your choice in a frying pan. It does not take much but you want to saute it in something. Turn the stove top on low heat and just cook the Serrano Pepper until 4 sides are darkened (not burnt). It will then be soft and VERY TASTY with your meal. This is a SIMPLE something to make your meal interesting.

sweets

I'm making a Birthday cake for my bowling team and I have to make icing and of course I have to try it to make sure it is okay. My mouth taste sicking sweet. I don't eat a lot of sweets and I don't use sugar on things so you can see why.

Use almond oil

A splash of almond oil instead of olive oil when sauteeing adds a great hint of flavour to many meats and veggies.

Low Carb Breading

I sometime use crushed pork rinds and sesame seeds as a low-carb substitute for breading chicken. Gives a smokey flavor. Try the bar-b-que flavored too.
