Ann's Dirty Rice
Good basic recipe that can be tweaked with extra ingredients. Perfect for a quick fix meal. I used 1 pkg boil in the bag brown rice (just dumped the dry rice in there) and it turned out perfect. I added a half bag of Baja style corn that had too many peppers and onions for our liking to eat plain. It worked great in this recipe. I also topped with 1/2 bag of shredded cheddar cheese. I will be making again.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
Best homemade biscuits I've made sofar - and I suck at biscuits. First ones came out great, second ones not so good. I used 2% milk on the first batch and buttermilk powder & water for the 2nd (according to the directions on the can). I don't keep buttermilk on hand, so I will make with milk again and report back. Would have never thought to brush the tops, it really makes the tops nice.

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps
This cookie was OK, but nothing great. It was grainier than expected. It would be better to not use all whole wheat flour I believe. And there was no way these were rolling into balls. I refrigerated briefly, but still had to add more flour. But, it's not just the flour that's the problem. The other spices cover up the ginger taste too much. If I make again, I will have to try to figure out which spices, other than ginger, I need to cut back on (maybe all of them). Another problem I had was that the cookies didn't keep their shape, they just melted into large circles. The cookies stayed chewy after cooking, which was good. I took some other reviewers advice and substituted 1/2 cup brown sugar for white. I like the idea that they are whole wheat, but I think I'd rather have a white flour or mixed flour version that tasted better.
