Mexican Rice III
Ok, I just successfully made the recipe with brown rice - I'm standing in my kitchen and taste tested it and it's great, not even that different from white. I used 1 cup brown rice instead of white, and toasted it in the sauce pan with olive oil and the onion for closer to 5 or 6 minutes. I just kept an eye on it and let it get as toasted as possible without actually burning. Then I added 1 and 2/3 cups chicken stock, brought to a boil, covered it and reduced the heat to as low as possible. I let it cook undisturbed for about 40 minutes before checking it, then let it cook about 10 more minutes.

Banana Banana Bread
I used 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour + 1/2 c. bread machine flour + 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour. The extra gluten in the bread machine flour gave the bread a great texture. I only had 2 bananas which made about 1 cup of banana mash so I added about a half cup of apple sauce to make up the rest and it was really good. Also I added vanilla extract. Great recipe.

Roasted Beets with Feta
I have absolutely HATED beets my whole life. And I'm not a picky eater; I would even eat canned spinnach as a kid sometimes! (ew, I know!) BUT I love this salad. This is a perfect beet recipe. I like to add walnuts as well and it's delicious.
