My son was put on a diet that required more whole grains than meat, and so I discovered the very much underappreciated Rice Maker. I hate cooking! So this discovery was awsome. Its like a crockpot, in an 1/8 of the time. Throw all your ingredients in, and forget it, 30-45min later, a real 1 pot meal. (and healthier too, no need to oil a pan) So far, Ive created quite a few flavorful meals that require minimal effort, a must for me. Red Beans & Rice W/ Ham, unFried Rice, Chicken rice and veg., and tonight a Chicken Stir Fry that turned out way better than expected. I cant be the only one, so I was wondering if any of you had any recipes to share.
