This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Works for Me Wednesday - Rice

Have you ever noticed that when you order Chinese food, the rice is always sticky and soft? Well, I found the following tip in the Company's Coming Asian Cooking cookbook.

Soak your rice in some water for approximately 5 minutes, then drain. Then, proceed to cook rice as normal (with water only). When it comes to a boil, turn down the heat but DO NOT lift the lid.

After the normal cooking time (approximately 20 min) your rice should be nice and soft. Yummy! Try it... it WORKS FOR ME!

What kind of rice are you using? Ever since we got our rice cooker Nick has been buying and trying all different kinds. I think Jasmine rice is naturally sticky...but anyway, glad yours came out good!
