Cooking Rice Tip

19 Apr

Whenever I cook rice, I always refer to my Centsible Meals book. I think I am just a little obsessive compulsive. Rice is simple to make, but you want to make sure that you get your measurements just right. Too much water and the rice will be soupy, not enough and it will burn. I recommend giving brown rice a try instead of white. Brown rice has fiber so it is much healthier for you then white rice is.

Here are the directions for cooking rice from Centsible Meals: “Rice requires a 1:2 ratio with water. For example, one cup of rice needs to cook in two cups of water. You can feed one person with 1/3 cup of uncooked rice. Combine rice and water in a covered pot. Cook over high heat until boiling and then reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes for white rice and 45 minutes for brown rice.”

Easy Treats to Make

6 Apr

These are some easy treats to make on a busy night. You will love them.

These Corn Quickies are a great treat for a large group. At work, we all bring treats for co-workers birthdays. I recently brought these and they were a big hit. The add-ins I used were Golden Grahms and shredded coconut.  Here is the recipe.


This is an easy treat to make that my mom used to make when I was growing up. I remember one time she made it for my birthday. I remember me, my mom and my dad sitting at the dinner table eating it. I love Strawberry Shortcake. I make real whipped cream to go on top because I think it taste so much better than that fake stuff.  Strawberry Shortcake is still one of my most favorite warm weather treat and it is so easy to make. Here’s the recipe.
