Mexican Rice II
I wish I could give this six stars--this is why: There's a Mexican joint around where I grew up that has rice EXACTLY like this. Now older and in the military, I rarely get to eat that delicious side dish. This recipe is 99% dead on. I make it any time my family has Mexican food. Now if I could only reproduce their salsa...

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I use this recipe any time I make a pizza, but I use a mixture of white, wheat, and spelt flours to get a grainy, nutty taste, plus I like the variety. I even toss a generous amount of oregano in there, and sometimes even cheese. Finally, before baking, I coat the exposed crust at the edges with a bit of olive oil so that it crisps up in the oven. Gives it a nice texture and color.

Fried Dill Pickles
I'm in the military, stationed in Hawaii, and it can be hard to find some of my family's favorites from back home on the islands. My pregnant wife started to crave "frickles", as we call them. Found this recipe and it hit the spot! I added in some garlic powder and a pinch of chili powder to the flour mixture. This recipe is highly-customizable! I'm trying to watch what I eat, but I couldn't help but to have some of these puppies with my light, home-made ranch.
