We are on a Tex-Mex kick here on the blog and the next condiment that Dana and I wanted to make was Guacamole.  I love Alton Brown so I wanted to try out his version of the classic dish.  I must say that he hit a home run with it.  We used this recipe.  it was well balanced, not too spicy and downright delicious!

Herbed Rice

Herbed Rice

We recently got a new rice cooker.  It is a zojirushi rice cooker and it is freaking awesome!  and I wanted to expand our repertoire of rice dishes beyond just white long grain rice.  So I decided to come up with a new recipe that would utilize the rice cooker but impart a ton of flavor.  So I substituted the water for chicken broth and then added herbs and onions to enhance the flavors. This was some of the tastiest rice I have ever made.

Honey Soy Chicken Skewers

Since the snow has melted we have been itching to grill.  So I decided to dust off the Weber Grill and make some chicken.  I wanted to use only the ingredients that I had in the house, so I raided the pantry.  I had soy sauce and honey.  Boom, honey soy chicken. Sounds like a winning combination to me.  Since I wanted to maximize surface area of the chicken that absorbed the marinade, I decided to cube the chicken and skewer it.  This was a great combination which is going to be added to our regular dinner rotation.  You have to try this.
