I love rice and so does my husband. We try to find different ways to prepare and enjoy this wonderful food. Through time, we found hundreds of recipes, some simple and some exotic, and have enjoyed preparing them. We've found some real winners, which I have published on this blog and some that are not so great, which are in my personal "do not" repeat folder. I have created this site to share those memorable dishes - which are all about this wonderful food called "rice".

Steamed Rice

There are two ways to make the perfect steamed rice.  On the stove or in a rice cooker.  I personally prefer using the rice cooker since it cooks the rice perfectly everytime. No guess work. 


1 cup long grain rice or jasmine rice
2 cups water
Salt (optional)

Place rice in a mesh sieve and rinse well with cold water to remove the extra starch. 

To cook rice in a rice cooker, place the rice and 2 cups of water into the rice cooker, cover and turn on. When rice cooker clicks to "warm". Leave on warm for approximately 5 minutes. Turn rice cooker off and let sit for another 3-5 minutes, fluff rice with fork and serve with your favorite toppings.

On stove top, combine rice and water into a 3 quart sauce pan. Cook using medium-high heat until water starts to boil.  Allow rice to continue to boil until almost all the liquid has been absorbed.  Reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for for 15-20 minutes.  Remove from heat and fluff with fork. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Note: if using salt, add to the sauce pan or rice cooker at the beginning of the cooking process.
