Lola's Horchata
Great drink. I changed it a little, but this is a fabulous base recipe. As suggested by another reviewer, I used whole cinnamon sticks instead. I mixed 1 1/3 cup rice, 2 cinnamon sticks, and 2 cups a water in a blender and blended. Then I added 3 more cups of water and blended a whole lot more. I poured it all into a pitcher and let it soak overnight--the time came out to about 17 hours by the time I got around to finishing it. I strained the mixture, then doubled the milk and added it. I actually more than doubled it just to finish off the jug--so about 1 1/3 cups. I used only 1% milk and I might use less if it was 2% or whole milk. Then I added 1/2 tbsp of vanilla like instructed which was plenty. I added half the sugar and tasted it--way not sweet--so I added the other half. I think it's a little too sweet for me now so I might just do 1/2 cup of sugar next time instead of 2/3 and see how that goes. Yum!

Artichoke Chicken
It was ok. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of canned and I think that made it better. I only eyeballed the amounts of everything--2 "thwacks" of mayo and 1 of sour cream, a tbsp of minced garlic (I love garlic), and a few dashes of pepper. I added one dash of cayenne but you couldn't taste it so I think I'll add more for next time. I also think this would be better if you made the chicken separately and made the rest into a sauce. Next time I'll cook the chicken in a skillet and I'll mix up the mayo mixture in a pot, and maybe add some milk or something to make it more saucy to go with pasta. Overall I was happy with the flavor.
