Boiled Rice

Boiled riceI used to hate making rice, until I realized that the world won’t end if I ignore conventional wisdom. It’s ok to remove the lid to stir during cooking and to add more water, and it doesn’t even matter if there’s liquid left at the end. As when cooking pasta, you can just drain whatever’s left when the rice is ready.

Bouyourdi

BouyourdiI love Greek restaurants, but somehow I’d never tasted or even heard of bouyourdi before actually going to Greece. Now I eat this combination of roasted peppers, tomatoes, and feta every week.

Braised Brussel Sprouts

A lot of people don’t like brussel sprouts, but I think that’s because they haven’t had them cooked properly. This recipe makes the best brussel sprouts you’ve ever had.
