Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup
This soup is awesome on a cold rainy day. I didn't have bullion cubes so I just used 2 C chicken stock in place of 2 C of the water. I just used some shredded pizza cheese that tastes good too. I also added 2 chopped garlic gloves and half a can of cream of chicken soup for a bit more flava. Hmmmmhmmm good soup! A+ A broccoli lovers delight!

Perfect Sushi Rice
Okay, I tried this a second time and it seemed to turn out better. It may need tweaking according to your personal taste to sugar or vinegar.

Awesome Egg Rolls
I omitted the bean sprouts, celery and shrimp and made mine with two cooked and chopped up chicken breasts (could probably even use more chicken) I also added 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh ginger root, an extra carrot, extra soy sauce to taste and dropped a few drops of sesame oil to the vegetable oil for extra flavor. In all these are the best egg rolls I've ever had, I am thinking adding the ginger helped the flavor a lot. Next time I will try baking them just to be healthier. Wonderful! Thank you Crystal
