The humble rice cooker........
I can't cook rice. My family didn't really EAT rice....we ate potatoes. I came from a long line of 'potato eaters.'
Wouldn't you know I would marry a rice eater. He came from a long line of 'rice eaters.'
My rice is horrible. Sticky and sometimes goopy....sometimes not cooked through....really nasty.
So about 10 years ago, while visiting my family for the holidays, I was griping about my lack of rice cooking skills.
My sister jumped up and went into the garage, when she came back in, she handed me this rice cooker, still in the box. She had gotten it for a gift.....but they never used it because they aren't rice eaters.
I was so excited. I didn't even know they made rice cookers.
Now I don't stress over cooking rice. This little baby makes perfect rice every time I use it...which is at least once a week.
So my question for you, dear readers? Rice or Potatoes? (and all you pasta lovers...don't worry...we eat pasta so much, it doesn't count!)
