    Here's how you cook good rice.

    Take the rice, put it in a pan. Remember, the rice you start with will triple in size, so plan accordingly.

    Put water in the pan, about an inch over the rice level.

    Cook for approx 30 minutes or until rice is good and fluffy. Should be sticky, depending on the style.

    About 2-3 cups of uncooked rice go in a medium sized pan, BTW.

    And this is for the good stuff, not Uncle Bens. Go be a big spender and drop $20 on a 25lb bag, instead of $3 on a teeny box of instant rice.

    How about this one: Mint Truffles (these are f-ing amazing)

    Pulverize one package of mint oreos to dust in a blender (works best to crush about 6 at a time)

    Pour the oreo powder in a bowl and mix in a block (8 oz) of softened cream cheese and a few drops of mint extract until smooth

    Refrigerate for an hour or so, then roll into little balls and place on a cookie sheet--place back in the refrigerator

    Melt about one and a half packages of semi-sweet baking chocolate, use a spoon to dip the oreo/cream cheese balls in the chocolate, then place on wax paper to dry.

    Use the leftover chocolate to cover up any bare spots on the truffles. You can even melt some white chocolate and make little designs on the truffles if you're enough of a badass.

    Put em in the fridge until they're nice and cold, and you're done.

    It lasts almost forever. Just keep it in a cool dry place, and the bag is good for a year at least.

    Well I made Tom start this thread I better post a recipe in it.

    This is for Steak Fajitas

    1 lb of flank steak or skirt steak or any steak you have. I use the older stuff from the freezer

    1 large yellow onion peeled and sliced and I dice mine but you can do whatever you want.

    2 large bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, sliced lengthwise into half-inch wide strips

    Marinade:
    About the juice of 1 lime I like more
    3 Tablespoons of olive oil
    1/2 fresh Jalapeño pepper, seeded, finely chopped
    A teaspoon of dried cilantro
    A clove of minced garlic

    Mix all marinade ingredients. I like to slice the steaks up first but you can do what you like. Set the steak in the marinade and let it sit at least an hour, the longer the better.

    Cook steak to the desired doneness is reached. Now this is up to you ether cook the onions with the steak or on the side. Cook the onion and pepper till the onion is just turning translucent.

    Serve it up with your favorite toppings on tortilla or hard tacos.

    Fail.

    Always use fresh cilantro, your tastebuds will thank you. A bunch is like $0.59 at the grocery store.

    And you can take the rest of the bunch, pull it off the stems, chop it and put it in with the rice after you cook it, squeeze in some lime juice, put that in a tortilla with your fajitas and you've got your own Chipotle Fajita Burrito.

    Great Topic!

    Chicken & Ranch Pizza

    -First grill your choice of chicken till fully cooked. A GF Grill works wonders for this! Cut to desired slices.
    -Pizza Crust of your choice (either make your own or buy one from the store)
    -Spread Ranch Dressing evenly as the pizza sauce, holds it's thickness, so what you put on is what you get.
    -Add spices or your favorite pizza seasoning on the sauce as you see fit.
    -Add grilled chicken, any addition toppings(we use green onlives and even cut up Dill Pickles), and your favorite pizza cheese.
    -Heat oven to temp and cook as directed by direction on store bought crust (or to 400 degrees and till crust is golden brown if home made). Don't rely soley on a timer.
