Basmati is good, I cook that when I want to make white rice. I usually go for the long grain brown rice though as it has more fiber. Plus with the rice cooker its not hard to cook at all, the cooker takes care of it automatically. There's nothing I hate more than over/undercooked rice.

lol

Fajita meat used to be the throw-away meat from the cow. Now it's one of the most expensive cuts of meat.

I have a friend who used minute rice all the time, and I all but forced him to get a rice cooker. He loves it now. Wish it could be used as a slow cooker too to cut down on gadget count.

I recently got one of those self-stirring cooking pots. Chef-Stir I think was the name. It actually works quite well! Wish it was a little bigger, though. I am lazy, I admit it.

My cooking is the culinary equivalent of meatball surgery.

Neato. I always like to try new foods. I don't always like them, but how do you know beforehand? I didn't wind up having Indian food until I was 30. Now it's my favorite cuisine! That's how I got into batch cooking as Indian food lends itself to freezing pretty well. The nearest place is 1.5 hrs away.

Minute rice and Uncle Ben's are so processed so they can cook quickly that they have almost no nutritional value. I hate using that stuff.

I use my rice cooker as a rice cooker (Duh!), a vegetable steamer, and I have used it to cook side dishes like Rice-a-Roni. I've been tempted to see if I could do Kraft Mac & Cheese in it, but I haven't been that adventurous (yet).
