I found a new recipe that I like that involves using liquor in the dough, new, and unusual for me! I have never used vodka to make crust crustier. But it got me thinking, how many recipes have I done that required me to buy alcohol? I could count on both hands the recipes I have gone and bought itty bitty ridiculous bottles of liquor.
This raises the question: What recipes have you had to go buy your bottles of liquor for? Tequila, bourbon, brandy, whiskey, vodka…?
Some people are whiter than rice, which is easier when it is brown rice than well, white rice. Like these people, some of my favorite white people ever. Speaking of which, their show is back on 10/10. WHOOHOO second season.
But while we are still discussing white rice and not some of my favorite white people ever I should post the How-To. Oooh, Robertsons’…
White Long Grain Rice
1 c white rice
1 1/2 cup water
fine mesh strainer
Rinse rice off in a strainer, until runoff is no longer off color. Add water and rice in a pot and bring to a boil without covering at medium high. Once at a boil, cover partially and turn down on low. Cook for 2-4 minutes. You will see cavities forming where water has cooked down. Simmer on low for 15 minutes. Fluff n’ serve.
Now, a few more aetv.com photos of my favorite white people…
I thought I would talk about a perennial favorite of mine, the fluffernutter. A mouthful in more than just pronunciation! Its deliciousness being more than I can stand, I must give recipe now so that you can create (though some of you already know how).
2 slices bread (less fiberier the better)
1 TBSP peanut butter (I like it smooth)
1 TBSP marshmallow fluff/spread
Butter for grilling
Optional toppings of powdered sugar or melted chocolate
Prepare sandwich like a grilled cheese. Toast in skillet on high until crunchy on both sides & gooey in the middle. Serve with a dusting or drizzle & a large cup of milk. Cold.
Alternative: this makes an excellent & decadent French toast. Prep sandwich & dunk whole sandwich in egg mixture before grilling it up & drizzle with chocolate.
