No, just busy sorting out kitchen and bathroom cupboards, getting cleared out before packing to move.

Whoops...I can't help it...gotta do it! somebody stop me.... oh no..it's a disease...
(am I going to get kicked out of here?) HELP!! I'm sick..I need help...someone call a doctor NO...not THAT kind!
...call an ambulance...

cooking question: What's the best way to cook rice? I'm referring to long grain here. I've always gone by what a cook on tv said...formula 1, 2 and 3... one cup rice, two cups water, yields three cups...she said put it in cold water, cook 15 min..don't remove lid. My daughters find my rice like glue...I like it that way, but I do cook it a couple or more minutes longer sometimes.

Any suggestions, or preferences according to Product names?

Jovin,

Do you have a gas or electric stove? For either, use at least double the water to the amount of rice.

For gas, bring to a boil. Then stir and cover with a tight-fitting lid and turn as low as you possibly can and cook for 14 minutes. Do you rinse it when it is done? If not, that could be why it is sticky. Put in a strainer and rinse before using to remove stickiness.

For electric, bring to a boil. Stir and cover with a tight-fitting lid, then (leaving on the burner) turn burner off and let sit for 20 minutes.

Do not lift the lid during either of these methods.

:) Barbara

I do..

NEVER heard that before! Only read that you should strain it under running water before cooking it...to get all the starch off, and I do...the water is murky that comes off of it.

>For electric, bring to a boil. Stir and cover with a tight-fitting lid,
I do that...

>then (leaving on the burner) turn burner off and let sit for 20 minutes.

What I do is, turn it down to minimum as soon as it starts to boil and then I have to keep lifting the darned pot up and down for a couple or more minutes till the darned heat cools down, or it will keep boiling over! I'm a nerd, but that's what I do. I usually cook it almost 20 min. but I keep in mind that that lady on the cooking show had said cook only 15! Don't know who it was, but she was supposedly telling you how to cook perfect rice.

>Do not lift the lid during either of these methods.
I definitely don't.
Wow! I've never heard that you should rinse the rice AFTER cooking. I've seen Rachel Ray on the Food channel cook it but I cna't remember her rinsing it either, but I could be wrong.

Thanks a whole bunch, Barbara,
Jovin

I have NEVER been able to cook plain rice on the stovetop - I mess it up every single time. To cook plain rice I use a rice cooker!

I can do Rissotto - but I cannot manage plain rice!

BUT I have a simply scrumptious recipe for "Cheese Rice" which is a family favorite and I'll post it in the pasta thread. So far as I know this is a completely unpublished recipe so you guys are the first to get it outside of my family! Lucky you!

You might also want to check what sort of rice you're using. Long grain is much less sticky than a short grain (as you would use in Rissoto - Arborio rice is what's used there) but with lots of liquid and cheese usually.

Linda I was referring to long grain white rice, and yes, I'm sorry...I saw later that there was a rice and pasta thread.

Thanks for posting your recipe, and I'm sure going to try it...gotta go look.
