Rice Cooker Rice Pudding
Will have to try again, because I think it'll be better with only 1 cup of rice. I used the Japanese style short grain rice used for sushi and Chinese porridge (starchy) - Nishiki. I read the other reviews about the cooker boiling over, so I set my mini (single dorm-style) cooker in a lasagna pan to catch the overflow. I also covered the top with paper towel to prevent the splattering. I added the last 2 cups of milk towards the end, when it was getting scorched on the bottom, but the consistency wasn't creamy enough for me. Taste was fine, especially with the vanilla, but it was too dry otherwise.

Fruity Krispy Treats
I cut the sweetness in half by using 3 cups of plain krispies and 3 cups of cocoa or fruity pebbles - and dry stirred the mix in a large bowl. For the cocoa mix, I used plain mini marhmallows with a 1/2 stick of butter, and for the fruity mix, I used fruity flavored mini marshmallows with 1 stick of butter (the artificial coloring probably affects the melting point). My pan wasn't big enough to stir all 6 cups into it, so I mixed what I could into the pan of melted butter and marshmallows, poured into a wax paper lined aluminum tray and patted down with another sheet of wax paper. I pull up on the entire wax paper to remove it from the aluminum tray and slice with an oiled pizza cutter,for easy slicing without scratching your bakeware.nDelicious treats for Teacher Appreciation week!

Fresh Tomato Salsa
I made sure to trim the ribs (white interior spines) of the pepper, so it wouldn't be overwhelmingly spicy. I couldn't wait an hour and set on the salsa within 15 minutes. I also used diced grape tomatoes, fresh dried cilantro from a jar (Litehouse brand) and the juice of 1 lime. Delish!!!
